Little A skipped the last half day of school and the boys headed out in the snow before 7am. they spent 4 hours straight building snowmen, snow forts, snowballs, sledding, eating snow… After drying off and refueling they headed out again to the tobaggan hill. Small dramas aside, i wore my pjs ALL day (out with my 1993 sorels shoveling snow), got the littlest A to sleep in the teepee and spent some cozy time knitting last minute gifts;

yes! the wind has blown the clouds over and it looks like we’re going to have some sunny days through the weekend. it has been freezing and i wish i had layers and puffy coats like these little ones to keep me warm. fun times just in the back yard;

October 2013

October was moody as it tends to be with it’s dramatic and changing colors, blue skies, fog and at the very last, rain. The boot room is showing transition as the season is cooling and i think there is a very large spider living in the corner who i really must get rid of.  I haven’t told the kids but soon they might ask why i’m banging out our shoes each time before we put them on and i know 1 boy in particular who will be particularly unsettled. There have been many after school scoots around the hood and to the park, beach explorations, baseball and neighborhood wanders with Little M, much dressing up and to that extent i have returned to my sewing projects, finally, after a great hiatus. The owl costumes got me started and the studio is a grand mess of projects now that need my time and attention. First craft fair is in 2 weeks! More on than in weeks to come.

(i donned my toilet paper binoculars and went as an owl watcher)

surveying the neighborhood at dusk and planning their route of attack. they look pretty Guardian of Ga’hoolish to me (judging by the book covers Little A is reading these days);

these toadstools pop up in this yard every year and every year they are an amazing surprise to discover. We stopped and wondered if there was anygnome home.

neighborhood rodent control – i’m sort of hoping that the same rodent who ate my tomatoes all summer long had the misfortune of nibbling on this particularly poisonous toadstool;No CaptionNo CaptionNo CaptionNo Caption
