Posts here are going to slow down. (Actually, they have already slowed down, but they are going to slow down even more.) Here’s why:
Well, it is that time of year; and keeping up with the leaves takes quite a bit of time. As one of our neighbors put it, “[The previous owners] didn’t tell you that you had another full time job, did they?” Last year, we had bags of leaves waiting to be picked up by the trash man until the middle of December. I am reconsidering whether autumn is my favorite season.
Also, the in-laws are coming! This Sunday! For a week’s stay! This is an opportunity for me to get to know them better, as I have only met them about four or five times, the last time being two years ago when I helped them pack up for their move down to South Carolina. Mr. Penney is anxious to see them, I know. Heck, I miss seeing my parents as often as I used to, and I get to see them a couple times a month. It has been two years for Mr. Penney.
I am trying to finish the spinning of September’s Hello Yarn Fiber Club merino, but it is going slowly. I don’t think I will get the single done before the weekend, but here is hoping.
Also, this Sunday, is the Race for the Cure, so if you would like a chance to win this:
please go here to find out more, and here to make a donation. Thank you to all who have donated so far. Your help is greatly appreciated!
You know, when i think of all the autumn leaves and their changing colors I never think of having to rake them all off the ground. Just goes to show what an tropical island girl I am.
Good luck with the in-laws! I hope you have a fabulous time with them. 🙂
We get lots of leaves, too, Al says at least 30 bags. I bought him a nice leaf vacuum, I help some, but I must be careful with my wrists for my knitting.
I hope you and Mr. Penney have a wonderful time with the in-laws!
