outside . . . this morning the air is crisp, with a touch of frost in the air
cooking/eating . . . it’s soup weather and tonight our supper will be homemade Minestrone (made this past weekend) with corn muffins
creating . . . trick or treat bags for Joe & Laney – feeds my need to create, only takes a couple of hours and because they are small I can play around with different techniques and patterns — plus they really like them
remembering . . . again how much I really love this time of year
reading . . . Middlesex and I are ‘taking a break’ while I go to other books on my bedside table – over the weekend I finished the first book in the Hunger series by Suzanne Collins – quick read and very entertaining
hoping . . . to finish a Halloween Twirly Skirt for Laney tonight – it seems that when you are 2 ½, it’s all about the ‘twirl’ !
hearing . . . the sound of hammering – our office complex is getting a new roof (a lot of noise and debris – but, when they are finished – no more leaks!)
home . . . slowly getting ready for the winter months – unpacked my flannel pajamas over the weekend – now I need to get my sweaters and sweatshirts out and ready for those cold days ahead
tonight . . . a little sewing and some knitting while watching ‘Fringe’ – I just love Walter — and Olivia – and, Peter !
from my picture journal . . . a pink ‘girlie-girl’ trick-or-treat bag for Laney.
Notes: Fabric : entirely from my stash Pattern : my basic kids bag pattern – measurements are 12″x14″ with 2″ gusset Ruffle on side pocket created by tearing a 2 inch strip and gathering before attaching to bag.
