Happy Halloween

Yesterday, kids in costumes went to school like our little neighbor girl, and also paraded around Regis University.  Doc came home early to avoid the chaos!

House Addition Plans

It's as lot of work, getting the permit, plans drafted and submitted to different folks, and finalizing preferences.  We started in July and still are in the planning stage.  Exciting!

Frost, Doll, Yarn

It's definitely chilly but snow has left the forecast for now.  Doll and yarn arrived today! Yeah! The best part of the day is that Doc could enjoy the xbox for the second consecutive day! Foot is healing, slowly but surely.

Doll Buckles Arrived

Some of the quantity was back ordered but yeah, I have enough of the silver overall hooks with buttons to get me through Christmas!

Fire, Food, Flowers and Yarn

Last night we also enjoyed the fire, burning bark, and I accidentally felted my favorite hat when I washed out the smoke! We had tilapia, and yes, I'm knitting.  Doc has the Ipad. Our normal!

Jack Frost Visited Last Night


Five Cutest Grandchildren


Sun and 57 Degrees

It's now fall! Our glorious sun appeared today and is trying to dry up all the puddles.  The low was 36 but no freeze here yet.  Our mountains are getting snow, above 9,000 feet.

So Much Water

The air smells like worms!  Slugs and earthworms were along the sidewalk of the greenbelt.  Icky!

Wet Walk, Ugly Decoration

I saw this skeleton dog at Costco! Gross!!!!

Knitting In Front of Fireplace

It's finally "winter" here!  Doc took his boot just in case but wore his regular shoe.  Thank you for waiting to snow!!
 These are flip top mittens.
Chilly! Wet!

 Michael and Sean are playing football this afternoon; still 72 degrees.
Flowers and yard are still happy and dry.  The storm should arrive this evening.

Sandwich, Progress of Foot

Doc used the drive through when his foot didn't bear weight.  When I picked up the sandwich on subsequent days, I used his cheat sheet.  He feared spit in his sandwich so he was super, super polite!
After x rays and blood work, no visible fracture, we went to buy a boot, approved by Dr. Hahn.  Crutches on day 6 could be worse!

 It's day 5 on crutches and Doc is coping well, restless, wanting to enjoy this mild Autumn, but the foot says, "wait."  Good call on the tech, Sean!!!

Balmy Autumn

On the greenwalk, the northern catalpa has tons of been pods.  Two new trees planted themselves in our yard; they are now planted in Leo's backyard.

 Teeny new roses are still starting to bloom.

Our yard does NOT look like the usual October!
