Just wanted to thank you again for my knitted cap. I wore it for the last three weeks with 20 degree nights. I am now in the desert, but I still finding myself wearing it.

As to your rental cars. What a great way to test drive the current vehicles available for a future purchase.....

Glad you're putting it to good use, Vince.

Time to start on hats again, tho not as many this year, as I am going to send a box of scarves instead of hats to Faithworks Ministries....I've made hundreds of chemo and winter hats in recent years, and I want to do something different for awhile.

I've been working on a shrug for myself, one of those items you crochet in a large triangle, then fold and stitch partial side seams in order to leave armholes. Hard to explain, but it is a very simple design, ends up with a shawl color, and I think would be perfect for chilly morning walks with my favorite, four-legged companion.

It's very pretty, but my first attempt is too tightly crocheted, and therefore small for me, so I have started another with a larger hook...I want something loose enough to wrap a bit.

We'll see how it turns out.

Quite chilly here this morning, and a bit of frost on the ground.

If I were going to be home this weekend, I might consider the first fire of the season....and try out my new firestarters.


Maggie

Good, I know the dog food seems expensive and the initial out lay is a lot - but one uses much less food at each serving. We mix in veggies to help them feel full.

The shedding product takes a while to get up to full dosage, then once there I'd say Hope's shedding is about 10-15% of what it was. You may have noticed all we had to do was touch her and fur would float off, no more. We are going to use it this time of year as well as in the spring when the Labs typically "blow" their coats.

I read that there is a dosing process, so won't expect instant change.

Lily sheds all year round, and that may have partly to do with our travel.

It's a crazy amount of dog hair...I think I've mentioned that here.

This is the shrug pattern I'm using, in a deep charcoal grey.

It's a Lion Brand pattern, if anyone is interested....

My house is about 1/3 ceramic tile, Jim, which I love for the exact reason your wife does, but I am in a small house on a slab...nice to have the living room and bedrooms carpeted underfoot in the dead of winter.

I complain about the shedding Lily does, but I wouldn't trade her out for anything.


Maggie
Our house is 1100 square feet on a slab, of course ours is in Florida. Floors can still get cool. Have a good one.

Maggie that shrug pattern is gorgeous. Like you said just enough to keep the shoulders and back warn. Those knitted items are quite on trend again. (Not that I am, but in all the stores) I could imagine mine in fall colors with one big wooden button front center and a funky scarf.

Not quite chilly enough here yet for one of those.

Finally cool enough to work outside till at least noon then I have to go in as the body is a little heat sensitive.

Having a fall colored get together in a couple of weeks and hope to be outside in the evening so got to tidy up the yard a bit.

Going to try to put the Airstreams in the backyard and use them for seating and looking at. We'll see how that works out.

Yes, I think it will be pretty, and I have thought about a loop and button, but will see how it hangs once done.

3 1/2 hours in the swimming pool, and we have just ordered pizza.

I love getting these kids together. They enjoy each other so much.

It makes me happy.

It's been a very good weekend, but Grandma is ready for a glass of wine and some down time.

6 hours travel time today, driving one direction or the other, but it was well worth it as they enjoyed their time together and with Grandma...and my son's three especially enjoyed going by the cemetery.

Such a beautiful place, and as we drove I shared Grandpa stories of growing up in Iowa....his words that I heard so many times rise up whenever I drive those roads, and I want to implant them in their minds so that they have them to supplement what they knew of him.

Sweet babies.

Maggie

I raised my children on these muffins, as they can be scooped out and baked while everyone is getting ready for school or work.

I got this recipe from my mother, when I was a young mom, and for many years there was nearly always a batch of it in my refrigerator.

Good, and good for you.

I use part brown sugar, also substitute out 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and you can use any dried fruit you like...I had chopped dried apple, so that went into this batch.

The recipe tells you to let the batter sit in the frig overnight before baking, but that isn't really necessary.

You do need to let it set 20 minutes or so, to allow the dry ingredients to meld a bit, and soak up the liquids before you scoop them out.

I can't find my original, handwritten recipe, but this is it..

They are tasty, Gail.

I have been Uber'ing today...to/from hospice, going again in a bit to pick up the Interstate.

Punch a few buttons on the phone, and a car appears to drive you anywhere you need to go.

It is almost cool enough for my first fire...but, not quite.

Practicing for being vehicle-less, I walked Lily up to Walgreens this morning to pick up a prescription...standing in line with the vehicles, for the drive up window.

She loved it, not having walked that direction in a long time, and it was about a 2 1/2 mile round trip for us...good for her, good for my aging bones.

My good friend in northern MN called me yesterday, and we talked for a very long time...it's been awhile.

Telling her about the weekend, and taking the grands to Doug's grave, she talked a lot about what an important part of grieving visiting and tending a gravesite can be, and has been for her.

Closure, finality, paying one's respects, having a tangible place to go and see, something to touch that represents him....and taking flowers, pulling a few weeds, doing something for him in death.

It is love and respect and acknowledgment of the importance of the relationship.

I had not really thought it out, but it is all those things.

They have now done something for him, and have a visual they didn't have before.

A good thing.


Maggie

42 degrees, and raining this morning....the first fire in the woodstove of the season.

Used one of my new fire starters, and it started right up.
