As many who have read my blog before knows I am not the biggest fan of Halloween.  While I love fall, not so much Halloween. I don't like to get scared for any reasons and I still believe there are monsters under the bed.  I liked Halloween as a kid, dressing up, trick or treating but since then not really.

Halloween hasn't been that positive of a day for me:
Six years ago on Halloween I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
Five years ago I had my appendix out.
Today I had nine crowns put in  - which wasn't too bad. My mouth is sore but no real pain.

But this year I have sorta changed my attitude (slightly). I have a new friend that really loves Halloween and through their passion of the Halloween I no longer totally hate Halloween. In fact I sorta embraced it by knitting a pumpkin patch. 

This was a lot of fun and it was fun to share the pumpkins with my friends. (okay, some haven't gotten theirs yet but they will.)

One of those Days

While today is a beautiful sunny day, unfortunately it is very chilly.  But at least my front porch looks cute.
I love pumpkins on the front porch.  It makes me want to make some pumpkin spice coffee. But before I do I thought I should show you how my day is going.
Yes, that is one of my temps. I can't get into the dentist until tomorrow night.  Luckily I don't have any pain from it yet.  Well I am off to make some coffee.

Monday, October 24

Monday was a great day. I had a productive day at the gym and in the office.  We finished the day up with dinner with friends at our favorite place. 
It was a great night to eat outside before the weather changed to more fall like temperatures.  We enjoyed tacos and great conversation.  We headed home for homemade hot cocoa that was like drinking a liquid brownie.  So very yummy!!! 

I finished the socks I was working on for the last few weeks.
Now I am working on a few little knitted pumpkins for Halloween and the Thanksgiving. More pictures to follow.

Not much knitting

I haven't knitted much lately. In fact, last night was spent mostly frogging projects.  The socks called S'mores were the first to go.  As socks are one of my favorite things to knit that if they stay on the the needles too long there is something wrong. So they were gone.  Then the shawl that has already been frogged once before and so it ended in the frog pond.  Then I had another pair of socks that I cast on yesterday that also got frogged as well as a baby sweater. 

So what do I have on the needles.  Well this shawl/baby afghan.

Then I casted on a different pair of socks last night.
I feel like I got a lot accomplished last night, even though it would seem that I went backward but I feel relieved to have those off the needles, as I never would have enjoyed knitting them. 

It looks like the weather has decided that summer is over as the temp when from 86 degrees on Monday to 49 degrees as a high today.

oh yeah it snowed a little today too!

Not a bug person

I already shared this on facebook, but as I was leaving home this morning to run errands before work, this BUG was on the front lock. I don't do bugs but I really don't like bugs in my place. Out in the wilderness that is fine, that is their turf. So it took me a moment to lock the door....yes I thought about not locking it but I couldn't leave unlocked. Yes, I did freak, I didn't scream but one of my dear friends (at least one of them) screamed for me when they saw it.
