I am feeling scattered today. So I guess you are getting a scattered post. Here are the beautiful sunflowers on my kitchen table. I love sunflowers in Autumn. The ghosts Little Buddy made with his babysitter with tissues, cotton balls, string and markers.
My beautiful Mum is flowering so nicely. See the little surprise flower behind it?
This basket that has been refilled several times with yarn is near empty because................
Thirty-five dishcloths have been completed. I think I might be done with this project, well at least for now. I think I should celebrate!
Little Buddy leaves a cute mess everywhere he goes. Firefighters and a firetruck came for a visit at his school this week, he loved it. He got this Elmo coloring book that discusses the old favorite, "stop, drop and roll." He is also in LOVE with his fake money. He says, "I love money," all the time in this weird deep voice, sort of like a deranged accountant or banker! We might have a problem on our hands as he gets older!!!!!
I made something cute last night, more on that later.
I hope to be sitting my behind right here in a few minutes listening to Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld. I am really enjoying this book so much. I was listening to The Rope Walk by Carrie Brown but I returned it to the library early as it frankly was driving me crazy. There were way, and I mean way to many similes in this book. I am not a literature Queen but I swear I was ready to scream at the author if she had one more sentence with, "like" or "as if," in it. The main character was 10, and there is just no way a ten year old has these types of thoughts. And it also took place in current times but it should have taken place in the 70's, it felt wrong when the author mentioned 9/11 or cell phones, sort of jarring in fact. I finally put myself out of the misery I was in and returned the audiobook early. I looked up the book on goodreads and frankly might be the only one who did not love it.
Listening to a book while driving, going for a walk or playing with yarn is my new favorite thing to do. I get double the "reading" time and can get other things done at the same time. I am re-reading the Big Stone Gap series by Adriana Trigiani in the evenings before bed. I have missed the main character Ave Maria, she feels like a good old friend. I am enjoying them even more than the first time I read them. That is the wonderful thing about a good book, you can re-read it many times and get different things from it each time you read it.
This morning I spent pressure washing my driveway. I never even knew something like this had to be done until I moved to Florida, the mold and mildew capitol of the world. The pressure washer stopped working about 3/4 of the way through the job. I think I overheated it. I will try to finish it tomorrow, boy I have such an exciting life!
I have been decorated for Halloween for a couple of weeks. I love this holiday. I will show you more this week.
Is Blogger slow today or is it just me?
Hope you are having a slightly less scattered day than I am.
