Quick Weekend

 It was chilly and windy; Doc cooked delicious meals as usual.

 
I taught an applique class and then beginning knitting class on Saturday.  FUN!!!
 
Doc has shortened slacks and jeans in case he wants to wear them this week. Time sure goes quickly.

Our Hygge Life

It includes our Ma and Pa Ingalls lifestyle at The Barn of knitting while reading, being cozy under a knit or crocheted afghan, collecting dryer lint for the wood burning fireplace, splitting wood, going on long walks, canning apples and pizza sauce, making and lighting candles, and preparing most of our own meals.  Dinner at a restaurant just isn't the same!  He's into mindfulness and I gravitate towards the gospel.  It's all good and it's our wonderful life!

Sasha and Gregor Do Tricks


I don't like Halloween so don't sew costumes but could not resist October themed cotton fabrics.

Knitting and Candle Making

 We have become BIG crafters!  He found this huge tub of candle making supplies on Craig's List.
This morning, my latest order from KnitPicks arrived.  I love yarn!

Wine and Yarn

Everything goes well with yarn and wine!  Doc's Christmas socks yarn arrived late afternoon yesterday and is perfect!  I don't knit as quickly these days and am hoping that changes once Dr. Fremling (hand specialist) tweaks two fingers of my left hand.
 
These three pairs of socks are on needles, as well as at least 15 other projects!!!

Fun at The Barn

 It is definitely Autumn but we are still enjoying the back patio.  Low humidity (8%!) has returned.
Doc grilled burgers and since it was chilly and 62 degrees, we warmed our eating space with the outdoor fire pit. 
 
Most of the leaves from the Cottonwood trees have fallen; we are welcoming snow!

Happy "I Love Yarn Day"

 
 Doc is trying on Sasha Doll's mittens.
 It's chilly plus 33 mph winds so we're staying inside.  We guess DIA is closed!
 The French Onion soup for lunch was the best I've ever eaten. 
For me, every day is loving yarn day; I knit every day and there's yarn project in progress in just about every room of our house.
