Weekend Before Halloween

Wow, this month has flown by. Between things for the kids and birthdays, time has flown! The Lebanon Library has started homeschool classes and the girls have loved them. As October closes, November begins and we have more birthdays. Nicole and I collaborate and decide what to do together, it means we get to do a little more for her birthday, paired with mine. The older girls noticed and they have started the same thing. It makes it more fun. We will be having a good meal for the dads on the 12th to celebrate my dad (his birthday is coming) and we are also celebrating Veteran's Day. The meal has already been chosen and my dad is excited for the meal, it is his favorites. I even said that if the weather cooperates I will grill part of the meal, the rest will be prepared in advance and just be reheated in crock pots (mashed potatoes, sauer kraut, pumpkin pie - not reheated).

I am still looking at the patterns in my emails and saving the links that I want to use some day. I have a lot of emails in my google and still over 1400 in my yahoo, but today, I worked on those and that decreased from over 1500 to over 1400. That works for me. I have seen memes that talk about a person having so many that they would never be able to finish them all. I know exactly what they are talking about. A friend and I have also been talking about being SABLE with our yarn, too. SABLE - Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy. I said, as long as my youngest is enjoying knitting, I won't have to worry about that. She will inherit my stash, as right now she is raiding it and I have absolutely no problem with that.

As I am working on this, I have been using my libraries (yep, libraries) and I downloaded MP3 or Overdrive books and have been listening to the books that I want to read, but I just don't have the time to knit/crochet/read and empty the emails to do. I have friends who have actually recommended listening to books on tape (MP3, Overdrive) while doing other things. I do have a hearing impairment and sometimes when things get too loud (I have kids, that happens a lot) I can't hear the words and I usually just give up and go back to my books or watching tv with the captions (while knitting/crocheting/cross stitching, etc).

Today is such a gorgeous fall day and I really do need to get out for awhile. I will accomplish that after lunch and then come home to cook some supper for the family. I may take my dog along, since she enjoys walking in parks and this way I can explore the parks some more. I love that we have so many with hiking trails nearby.

I know I mentioned a few posts ago, about Caron Cakes. The Crochet Crowd has links for patterns of things to make using the Caron Cakes. Enjoy!
