Squirrel Fur of #53 and Santa's Workshop Fur

 Bunny slippers are still selling well; after class I sewed more of different sizes.
 Then I vacuumed up tons of furry debris while Doc drove this guy to his new home!

Knitting: Her Thanksgiving Socks

She arrives November 18th and her socks are waiting patiently! Mummy is NOT waiting patiently!

Things Growing in Our Backyard

 A large volunteer sunflower is next to the grape vine.  The sweet onions are making seeds.
 These are sweet red peppers, purchased from Golden Farmer's Market this morning.
 mini tomatoes, a purchase at Golden
 day lilies from last year's purchase: edible garden
 the first buds; these Cosmos are descendants of the seeds Grampa Bob bought for me in 1992.  He bought from Park's Seeds.
 pumpkin patch, sans baby pumpkins
I love all the herbs!

Battle of Two GPSes

The smart phone is superior with clear, detailed directions!
