It's fall, folks, or close enough to count. I've been canning peaches, which is a sure sign. I've also been spinning. This is what mohair looks like, when you're not very good at washing it so that it doesn't have any wrinkles!
I've been baking bread and making pies and cleaning the house, and I don't know what all. My husband says I'm all a-glow, and he'd think I was pregnant if it weren't scientifically impossible. So why the nesting instinct? It's gotta be these
soon to be riding this.
Another school year about to make my life as crazy as possible. So I thought I'd start spending a few minutes a day sitting quietly, trying to figure out how to avoid being so busy. (It's not going well) They've already joined soccer, 4-H (bunnies), still in choir, and we teach a drama club. Hmmm. Friday night football games, and our week's all sewn up, folks! And it's a testament to our summers that I always want a few more week with the kids. I love snow days as much as they do =) Here's a couple of pictures of the summer camping trip. We live in a beautiful area, and this view is less than half an hour away. It's been a great summer, the best one yet.
So I'm not complaining. I'm just trying to get my head around the idea of fall.
Hey, shawl knitters! Anyone else have any pictures they'd like me to post? We've got a couple more weeks here, and then I'm doing the final fiber drawing, and a little shawl recap. It was fun, wasn't it? Let me know if there are any more updates, and I'll take care of those. In the meantime, I've got another water balloon fight to plan.
