This weekend was homecoming! For those of you that don't know both girls went this year. I got there dresses at a deep discount so that didn't hurt to bad. I did pay for updo's and makeup. Their worth every penny I spent of their dads money... LOL! My middle daughter is now dating the boy that escorted her to the dance. He is a nice boy, hopefully he stays that way.... *sigh*
The farmers market that we go to.... You know that one that I haven't talked much about since I have gotten myself into this new hobby of yarn.... Yep that one. Well, Grim and I went today. I got potatoes (some for fresh and some to can), Beets, sweet potatoes, delicata squash, hubbard squash all to can. I also got cabbage (sauerkraut), onions, dry black bean and peanuts. I am going to be so busy for the next week. Like I needed more to do.... But the weather has taken a nose dive so it will help keep the house warm. Since I won't turn the heat on until the last possible minute.
I have the windows "fall" closed.... The inside is closed but the storm is still open...That way if the weather is nice I can open them with little fuss. I'm figuring that before the month is out the windows will be winter closed and before the end of November I will have the plastic up. I think we are in for one mean winter this year. I hope I'm wrong! I'm going to try and clean out my ducts myself. They haven't been done since we've lived here and I doubt the first owners of the house ever did it. So I figure that there is a carpet of yuck in the ducts.... I will be wearing a respirator.... *SMILES*
Lots still going on, on the yarn home front. But you know with most of it I can't say boo about it. I am working on a shawl for myself. You can see the pattern here.... Dummy Clap Shawl I am using caron simply soft, color # 0014. It is a teal, this is the first time I'm using this brand of yarn. It's taking me a bit to get use to a yarn this thin. With the amount I've gotten done it is very warm for such a light weight yarn. I can see myself using it more in the future.
One last thing... The garbage disposal went tonight. So not only did the basement get a nice bath but to replace it for the cheapest is $85 + tax. Grim was so happy that I told him to just take it out completely. Tomorrow he will get more pipe and return the under the sink to its former glory!
