Last Day of October

Today was a beautiful morning, an actual warm Halloween day. It is suppose to be 76 degrees today. So after a quick mile walk, I had my morning tea outside in the backyard as the weather is changing tomorrow with a chance of snow in the valley on Sunday.
I cast on another pair of the turkish bedsocks for Christmas presents as I finished the other pair last night while Preston and I were watching TV. Is it really TV if you are streaming? No clue.
Tonight we are taking pizza and heading to the parents so help hand out candy. Mom is under the weather so dinner arrangements are up to us. Dad, of course, is thrilled that it is pizza.

A quick update

Keeping my toes warm on Sunday

Relaxing at the Tea Shop

a little knitting at work
Mainly what has been going on in life is a lot of knitting and getting ready for cooler weather. After a nice warm Friday and Saturday the cold air came in at least for a few days. The end of the week is suppose to be back up in the mid 70's with another storm coming Saturday with possible snow in the valley on Sunday.

Three on Thursday

Yes, I stole the idea from Carole's blog today.  This week has been categorized as not fun.
1. Hubby bought a new hard drive for the computer and then I took from Saturday Night until late Tuesday night before it was ready for me to use again. This meant watching regular television instead of streaming at night.  So I watched a lot of football and caught parts of both World Series games.

2. A wonderful young talent man that was part of the music program at my work, past away on Monday night.  How or why doesn't need to be discussed here but the loss is quite deeply felt by all.  He was amazingly talented and will be dearly missed by all. As I answer the phones for the business/school I have heard quite a few amazing and wonderful stories about him, the emotion of this loss has taken its toll on me and each day after work it takes a while for me to recover.

3. I am getting a lot of knitting done on Christmas presents and probably will finish the pair for my brother today as I just have a few inches left on the foot before the toe decreases. I love catching a few minutes in the morning to knit outside after my walk as the weather while cool in the morning has been sunny.

End of the Week

The end of the week was a little crazy, had to go for coffee on the way to work on Thursday and then again on Friday...Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Finished Em's socks on Thursday night, relaxed on the patio this morning after my walk, getting a little Vitamin D.  Then dinner on the patio with a little knitting of the new socks for Preston, along with a well deserved hard cider.
