The fall Blaahhs have hit

Well, it went from summer to winter here in just one day. Yesterday afternoon it was almost 90F and today it won't get higher than about 56F. How d'ya like that? Yes, we've been spoiled in Texas, and as far as I can see, a lot of the country, with warmer than normal temperatures, but I like to be spoiled. I don't like to be cold. It's been raining most of the day so far too...just blaahhhh. Good thing we mowed the yard and did all the yardwork yesterday!!

I haven't posted much lately because I've been busy. Busy with crochet. I've been starting to sell some stuff on Etsy finally, which is good. I actually sold 2 Longhorn hats this weekend....HOOK EM HORNS!!.... Then my apple cozy pattern is selling and I'm just thrilled about that...something I made up on my own is something people like to buy!!

I've been crocheting that dang sweater for my mom!! What a pain that is. The pattern is so screwy, but I"m getting there. I just have the arms left to do.

I'm also involved in making something from thread crochet for my all time favorite designer for a book be published next year. I'm very excited about it, and feel honored to be involved in any small way.

On a different note, with Thanksgiving right around corner I'm starting to think about Christmas and decorating my house outside. We recently went to a yard sale where I bought 4 deer, 3 stars and 2 other 'light up's' for $10.....and these will go along with the current 3 deer I have and all the outside lights too. My son and I are so looking forward to decorating. He's so much like me...yikes!!

Sam will be getting her SAT scores on Thursday and she's excited about that. I hope she gets back the scores she's expecting or 'it' will hit the fan...if ya know what I mean.

OK, I think that's it...oh! Wait! I forgot!! Yesterday I won tickets on eBay to go see the Dec 7th Dallas Stars hockey game. Why am I so 'over the top' excited about it?? Because they are playing THE OTTAWA SENATORS that night. Even when I lived only 45 minutes away in Canada, I was never able to go see the Sens play. This is the 1st time in 3 years that Ottawa has been here and I'm so excited. And yes, I'm going to be wearing my Sens shirt that night and cheering loudly for my team to win!! GO! SENS! GO!!

Ok, I think I'm done now. But I can't leave without a picture so here it is.....

Don't ya love how cats sleep in piles? This is my entire cat family...so cute!!
Bo, Romo, Belle, and Patches...

Lisa,

Your 4 kitties are too cute for words and isn't it wonderful that they so approve of your crocheting skills? :)

Aaaaw! I was going to say something about them all laying on your afghan, too. (Mine used to do that, she thought it was 'hers'.) And I love how they look at you like they are queens or kings, and what are you looking at? :P

I knew your apple tea cozy would be a hit! My husband said I need to make a smaller one for my other pot now.

Boy I'll say the weather is messed up, you don't know if you'll be wearing shorts or pants from 1 week to the next.

Seems as if quite a few of us have been really busy lately and not posting as much on our blogs. It's just that time of year. Can't wait to see picture of your mom's sweater.

The furbabies sure look as if they have decided the blanket were theirs.
