Autumn has not arrived here in Florida, we actually don't ever have much Autumn at all. So last weekend I hung up my glitter leaves from last year in the windows in my family room/kitchen area. I love to see them sparkle as they twirl in the air. No other decorating has been done as of yet. I am up to my eye balls getting my sons rooms cleaned up for painting and of course putting them all back together again. Plus Little Buddy wants Halloween to come quickly, he is excited about Aunts returning and a potential visit from Aunt Claudia and Uncle Don. If I put those decorations up now he won't understand why they aren't all here yet!
While getting organized this past weekend I decided it was high time my brothers children had the few items I have been holding onto for them. My brother died 25 years ago this past September. I had been keeping two trucks for his sons and these sweet leather shoes for his daughter. I have packed them all up and they are on the way to Michigan and Chicago. I will miss having them here with me but it is time they went where they were intended to go all along.
I was completely spoiled this past weekend when I got a box left on my front porch. A gift from Araignee's Tangled Web. Would you just look at all of this lovely soap, lotion and a foot fizzy. I want you to go right over to her blog and and give her a shout out. Araignee is amazing in all that she gets done and how absolutely, incredibly generous she is. Really Araignee has giveaways all the time and frankly I did not deserve this as I have already won one of them. Go over there right now, go and make sure you follow her blog so you can throw your name in to get another amazing bundle next time it is offered. Thank you Araignee for your generosity.
Jennifer over at thistlebear is hosting a Winter Project Link Party. I am going to join in again this year with much more manageable aspirations than last year. My only goal at this point is to finish this sweater. As you recall from a few months ago I am making Harvest by Tin Can Knits. I am enjoying this sweater a lot but am having difficulty finding the time to knit it. I am determined to get it done even though I have to admit I have veered from the pattern several times, not because I had planned to, I just got distracted and knit extra rows and such. I am almost at the bottom of the sweater and ready to get busy with the sleeves.
I appreciate all of your comments on my last post. I have to tell you I am a believer in free speech, you do not have to agree with me at all. But if you are not nice, and frankly not accurate with your facts I will not publish your comment. It is that simple.
Happy Autumn everyone, hope it is more Fall-like where you are!
