I put some photos of Quentin's Birthday celebration in this post for you. They are there for your viewing pleasure and have nothing to do with today's post. I just thought you might want to have a piece of cake with us while you read along.
It has been Fall here in the Loops for weeks now. I think Fall is my favorite season. The colors are wonderful, the air is crisp and alive in the morning and it warms up as the day goes on. The sun seems to shine more brightly on the days it chooses to peek out.
When I get up to run in the mornings the first thing I do is go to the window and smell the air. This way I can decide what to wear for my run and see what kind of day it is going to be. The air in the fall smells of falling leaves, dampness and change. It is a good time of year.
One thing that I find funny about this time of year is the way people dress. On my drive to work in the morning I pass by a thermometer that is posted outside a mortuary, today it read 9C, that is about 42 or 43F for you Americans. I was wearing linen pants, a sleeveless blouse and a light weight leather jacket, and a pair of strappy black high heels. Perfect for the weather.
I stopped by Cowboy's for a cup of coffee, the man in front of me was wearing shorts and T-shirt, the woman behind me a wool pantsuit, the woman behind her was wearing jeans and black down puffy NorthFace parka. It is funny to me that all of those people in all their layers, or lack of layers were all dressed as they deemed appropriate for the weather today.
Okay enough rambling about my favorite season.
Knitting: I have 6 rows, count them only 6 rows left on my sweater and then it all done, except for sewing two dies seams. I can't seem to get those last 6 rows done. They are rows of 286 stitches in K2P2 ribbing. I don't know why I have stalled here but I have.
PJ's hat is coming along, it
Mom, Quentin loves his blanket, he drags it everywhere with him. I thought I had posted a big thank you, but I must have just thought it very loud. (Do you ever do that?) I like the dresser, it is going to do some work for me here at the house soon and then I am going to re-finish it and take it to the office to use as a desk/storage in my exam room. Paul is not happy with it living his garage right now. It should not be there for long.
We are hosting the Kamloops West Rotary exchange student for a few months and I am going to rearrange the kids rooms, so she can have one of her own and I will put the dresser in her room for her. It will give her a place to do her homework too. Perfect! I will tell you more about her, when I know more about her. She is from Brazil and her name is Mariana, she is moving in the end of October or early November and staying for 3 months. That is all I know right now.
