I have to say that I am thanking God it is Friday! It has been a long, long week. My week was just busy and busy. Going from one event to another not to mention the busyness of the harvest and getting in all those truck loads in the computer. So now that it rained for a couple of days. I am getting caught up and doing all the qtrly reports that need to get done in the next week.

I am also wishing I could be at Rhinebeck. Where everybody and everyone in the knitting and spinning world is going to be. AHhh to pet a sheep, fondle fiber and dream about many new yarns and rovings. Well, I will be there in my mind......

Here we are looking at getting ready for the winter. This weekend is the plastic on the windows and clean out areas that need to be reorganized. So I will be busy this weekend too. I hope to get some knitting in and some scrapbooking too.

Can't wait to relax to night and knit and watch tv and just veg......

It's officially Fall for me!

I saw a v-shaped flock of birds heading south for winter. I wait every year until I see the first ones. I hope to see a bald eagle soon too. The last few years we have seen a couple of bald eagles pass thru eating their dinner. They are such a majestic and awe inspiring creature to watch. Also the mice are making pests of themselves this year. Trying to keep them out and get out the ones that got in to begin with. Never ending battle when you live in the country.

I did finish my shawl and can't wait to start the next one. I have been busy all week and haven't gotten a chance to Flash my stash for SP 11. I also got on Ravelry and haven't gotten a second to spend their either. I went to do a minute ago and found the digital was out of power so I am waiting for the battery to charge maybe I will get it in tonight don't know.

My secret pal did send me a package. I got it earlier in the week it contained 2 balls of 100% silk yarn that is so soft and wonderful can't wait to do something with it. I am think a scarf. We will see. The colors were wonderful too. I am kinda burned out on pinks and purples so the yarn was a nice change. It is in greens and purples and some white too. So different looking anyway.

Can't wait to have a moment to think about some things. Just thought I would do a quick post and say that I am still around just really really busy.

October all ready!

It is a busy time this first week in October....Soys are in full swing and I am still working on getting the quarter closed. I hopefully, will get some things done today and not feel so pressed this week.

I am on the LAST row of my shawl just doing the bind off picot edging on it. I am about 2/3 of the way done with that. I hope to block that by this weekend. That is good because I have another shawl kit coming. Looking forward to that. That is about all I have going on.
