Settling In and Catching Up

We are finally back in this Time Zone!  It became fall while we were gone, and now we are settling in for the season, catching up with friends, doing chores and our regularly scheduled activities.  Ginger and Mocha are keeping a close eye on us and have almost forgiven us for being gone so long.



The fall blooming clematis is showing off. It would grow clear up the second story if allowed.




I finished a Pumpkin Hat for Stella and am working on some other projects also.



Great niece Maddy is getting acquainted with her little sister.



Becca and I had a delightful afternoon at Country Village which started with lunch next door. She sent this fun photo.  That scone was very tasty!




Traveling is fun, but it's also good to be back home, isn't it?  Life is good.  More travel photos soon. Get inspired with others' knitting at Patchwork Times!

The pumpkin hat is adorable beyond words -- as are the children!

I know what you mean. I loved our vacation last week, but I'm pooped.

That pumpkin hat is adorable! I hope to see a photo of her wearing it soon! Your climbing plant is beautiful! Does it winter over well? I sure had a fun day with you last Friday, let's do it again soon! Oh, and love your little helpers. :-)
