Sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately. Life is just getting in my way I tell you. Here are a few things we have been up to.
Eva and I made unicorn pumpkin cookies this weekend. Now that is a concept isn't it? We had the candy corn and while we were decorating the cookies, she got a brain wave that suggested the candy corn would make the perfect unicorn horn on our pumpkins. I guess it works.
I mentioned in passing that I wished I could find a couple of lighted branches to stick in a fall floral arrangement, and the next thing I know, is my husband is presenting me four strands of lighted fall leaf garlands. Well. Thank you. I think. I am not sure how he jumped from lighted branches to four lighted leaf garlands, but more is more right? So I have been trying to figure out where to put his contribution to our fall decor. I have some pumpkins outside the front door, so that seemed like a good place for one of the garlands. Three to go.
It's pretty lame, but I kind of threw the remaining three garlands out on the porch railing. Actually, if we sit out there with our wine in the early evening, it is sort of festive and fun.
I have passed the half way mark with my scarf and am now decreasing stitches to form the triangle!
And this book, which I was honestly not enjoying much has finally picked up the pace and gotten good after 150 pages. Not cool, but I have determined to stick with it. Honestly, I don't know what happened to Kate Morton with this one. There are too many characters, the story line is super confusing, and there is a ghost who is trying to tie it all together for the reader. Not her best work.
Not much sewing, but I am probably going to get back to my red and white Christmas quilt any minute. My husband has had a job offer that seems to be drawing him out of his retirement, so I will be my own boss in the upcoming months, as he will be living closer to San Francisco where the job is, and coming home just on weekends. This is so funny. He knows these people who are offering him the job. The position comes up and they ask him to come in to interview for it on Thursday, and can he please start the next day? All this before they interview him. Ok, he's on board.
Hope your week is going well, and I hope to be posting more regularly!
