Pumpkin Day

We recently embarked on a road trip hoping to capture some of the fall beauty. It was a good day for the hubby and I to take a break from Life in general. Visited a yarn shop that I have not been to in over 5 yrs and I enjoyed chatting and catching up with the owner once again.

 We enjoyed the day until Chemgirl (who recently moved away) called with a dilemma. Hours later we managed to get the 'crisis' under control. Not an easy task when we're a day's travel away but it worked out.

Procrastination entered my Life (along with a few other distractions) and Christmas gift knitting is almost non-existent this year. However while cleaning up the knitting corner I found these mitts on the needles. I handdyed this yarn (way back when) so it would self-stripe and they were begging to be finished. It took all of 3 hours to finish and I'm wondering why I put them in the WIP bag and never finished them in the first place. *sigh*

The kitchen is in need of new dishcloths and this is perfect for the day. (hubby should like
 Last I leave you with a beloved picture of our cat aptly named (by the kids), Pumpkin or Pummy as she's more commonly known. She is 18 yrs old and we're making her life as comfortable as possible in her old age. She is quite the mouser and caught a mouse a few months ago. I'm hoping she doesn't present me with a trick or treat today ;).

Happy Halloween!
