Rainy October Days
The leaves around here are changing faster than expected, probably on account of the endless rain we've had lately. We've started running the pellet stove a little. It feels lovely to sit in front of a warm fire with a cup of spiced cider. I've been crocheting a bit. It always feels right this time of year. I'm really hoping to get back to my sewing machine today. Miss Oona needs a turtle costume for Halloween that's going to take some time. She loves "tortles" as she calls them, so I think she'll be thrilled with it. There is a pet turtle at a book store we visited the other day, and she blew it kisses the whole time we were in there.
What else is new:
- we celebrated 3 years of marriage in September while Jake's dad was up visiting, and he treated us to dinner at a favorite thai restaurant
- we are contemplating getting a kitten... it is a very bitter sweet thought for me as Terrapin is still greatly missed
- there is a delicious harvest of eggplant in the fridge, and also some tomatoes that need saucing up
- Oona has been burning the midnight oil again for the last 3 or 4 nights, which has both her parents groggy and a little cranky
- we had our first open mic/concert at the store on Saturday night on our new purple stage
- I love apple season, yum!
- my big jack-o-lantern is almost ready for pickin'
