We're really having some weather here in the Northwest. Connie has written about all the rain they're getting in the western part of the state; we've had some showers here all weekend, some strong wind on Saturday night, and today's high was just over 70 degrees!! What a change after 20 degrees on Halloween.
Saturday we did some yard cleanup which of course needs to be done again after all the wind and rain. We also stored the outdoor furniture under the deck along with some bikes and scooters that won't be seeing much action again until spring. Saturday evening DH and I went to a Gracefull Dinner with some church friends which we enjoyed very much.
Marring all the joy of raking leaves and good fellowship was the virus that hit the twins over the weekend - first Kevin, then Kyle. Kirsten and Melanie had already been its victims early in the week. Seems like it was just a little 24-hour kind of thing, so all that was needed was some extra sleep. Just wonder who it will strike next. It would be good to let it run its course before Thanksgiving when all the family is together. It's pretty awful when the entire family gathers and shares the stomach flu. Done that way too many times!
Well, on a happier note, I've completed another section of my SB ornament piece and have started the 2006 design! Feels good to be on the home stretch.
Michaels had DMC floss on sale last week, so I took advantage and bought up a bunch to fill the holes in my collection. As I was going through the list of numbers, I was surprised that I am missing so many! Hmmmm, part of that could be that some have been pulled for projects, but still I'll be watching for the next sale. A handful of floss bought now and then doesn't hurt the budget at all.
This week I'll be stitching madly away at a few little projects (hardanger ornaments) for my church's silent auction on the 11th. And I'll bake a few loaves of cinnamon bread as well. Food items are always popular with the men in the crowd. :)
