Yikes! Catch up time {not ketchup}

I've been remiss, so badly remiss, about blogging. I'm one of 'those' people that frustrate me, not blogging often enough. And now I've come to the table, or to the mouse I should say, empty handed. Yup, no photos. Camera's not with me right now.

What's been happening? Sadly, very little hooking. But I have completed two small pieces for Christmas exchanges....which means I can't show photos! Or at least not until they've been received. And I really, really, like them. Especially one in particular. Can't wait to show you.

Smidge lost another tooth, and wrote another note to the tooth fairy. And the tooth fairy almost missed her cue. Yup, sleeping on the job. I almost fired her a@@, except well, you do the math on that one. Suffice it to say, I noticed she was sneaking into Smidge's room at about 6 a.m., and got away with it.

I was sick last week, Smidge was sick this week. Wouldn't it be nice if that was the end of the illnesses for the year? I know it's bad to say, but I enjoyed the one evening at home when Smidge was sick. It meant not having to run out the door after a hastily thrown together dinner. But I was punished for such thoughts when her coughing woke us many nights in a row. All better now.

And it's the weekend!!!! Yay, soon time to jump into all the errands and chores that have to be done. For instance, our backyard is yellow. Yes, yellow. As far as the eye can see, yellow. Leaves, maple leaves, thousands of maple leaves. The only thing more torturous than raking them would be having to count them. Imagine?

Photos soon, I promise. Of what? I don't know, but something to catch your eye. Maybe, we'll see.

Halloween up next. Time to prepare for all the teenagers in non-costumes making too much noise and rudely demanding candy.

See ya next time.....

Happy Thanksgiving!

Saying life has been hectic is an understatement. Suddenly it's October and I don't know where September went. Plus it's Thanksgiving, which means a whole pile of preparation for the weekend. So far I have baked pumpking cookies and carrot cake. Tonight I'll do scones and prep the rest of the foods for meals, to pack everything in the morning and take the trek to the family cottage.

I hope that all my Canadian friends out there have a very peaceful and happy Thanksgiving weekend with their dear families and friends. What a glorious fall we are having - such gorgeous colours everywhere you look!

Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
