I'm still trying to hold on to Summer....

Me and the Roses are refusing to give in to the call of cold weather. In this photo you can see the light dusting of SNOW! Rude indeed...
OK, ..... so it makes for a good photo opportunity..... but that's ALL.
(did you hear me? cause I was yelling a little bit there) he he he he

See I even have some color left in this garden of mine. Poor little rose buds, hoping for their day to shine.

Here is Prancer, coming over to play with her mommy in the grass. She was a bad girl yesterday and got into the kitchen trash while no one was home... she was after icky dried up cat treats. She chomped that poor plastic container to death!

I know this is a crappy picture, but I wanted to show you .......
'that my tree has BALLS' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, ok....I have been knitting, but didn't get pictures of that. I started making Konrad his own pair of felted slippers (cause he stole Randy's). And a surprise pair of hand warmers for Chelsea. (I don't think she follows my blog?) I'm going to send them to her in the mail, so she will get some 'fun' mail at her apartment, not just bills :)
The boys have had their Senior pictures taken and it has been very hard to decide which ones to pick from. They turn "18" on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wow.

and made a Delicious Plum and Blueberry Upside down cake,
recipe compliments of
Yes, I ate 3/4 of this whole thing by myself..... it was THAT good.
And I have enough plums to make another : )

This is my pretty prancer enjoying some fresh rain water, she loves photo ops.

Fresh flowers from my thoughtful husband.

Can you see that I actually caught a picture of a bee in action, with my measly camera!!!

And this photo shows the autumn colors in my yard, during a lovely sunny day.
PLEASE let there be more sunny days.

I LOVE these Socks!

After visiting a friends house, I decided if her walls could talk then so can MINE !!!

Here is what it looks like in my house...can you see it over my back door. I thought this was a good place, heading out to the pool.
And here are the socks that are so very cool. Do you love them??

The heel is the cutest thing ever....

Anything for my viewers : )

They are the best fit ever. AND the pattern is free!! !!!

Purl can't stop meowing about them either!!!

I finished this sweater earlier in the year (before blog) and I get compliments EVERY time I wear it. It was such an easy, fun garment to knit, that I swore I would make another.......but other prospects come around and poof ! It fall out of the loop. And here is the long awaited sweater !!!!! Top half is knitted and the bottom half is crochet!! Make sure you click on the picture to see it up close.... but don't look at my funny face :}
