Signs of Fall


After crawdad hunting last weekend, we picked acorns; you have to get them while they are green, around here. Last year, I discovered that if you wait til they turn brown, they are squirreled away, literally!
This evening, we went to a pep rally at the high school, then walked around town. There's a crispness in the air that makes me love a good sweater. I am taking a knitting class in a few weeks. My first! I keep seeing such cute socks and sweaters online. I am looking forward to making some for myself.
Well, I better get to bed early. Lots of fun stuff + housework for tomorrow, and if I'm lucky, I might get some piecing done.

It is so cold tonight! Where are you going to take a knitting class? I keep thinking about taking one so I can make a scarf, but I haven't signed up for one yet. My mom tried to teach me last Christmas, but it didn't stick.

I'm curious--what are you going to do with green acorns?

Aw, the poor squirrels...denied! Though our Oak is being ravaged by a squirrel as I type. What are you going to do with all those acorns?

Those poor squirrels! They will be so hungry this winter!
My mom is making me a sweater and I can't wait till its done!
