Hello my fine friends! I hope all is well in your world. We are okay, but we weathered a terrible wind and rain storm yesterday! Gusts up to 60 mph hit our farmhouse.. and the power went out for 3 hours. We had rain pelting against the windows and branches hitting the roof. Dayle started the generator and kept the pellet stove going to keep us warm. I got a few more rows of knitting done in the storm. I confirmed to myself why I don't knit a lot.. LOL.. as I goofed up on one row and had to "unknit" it and of course when I did get back on track I can SEE that row as it's not right.. but there is NO way I'm starting this sucker over. :-) I hauled my knitting and camera back to our bedroom to get my photo on our bright colored duvet cover.. which picks up the colors in my yarn. I'm excited as several people mentioned in the comments on my last post that they'd like to join in and knit the Hitchhiker shawlette with my sister and I. How FUN! Unfortunately, my sister cannot make dinner for you if you join in the KAL. :-)
I just went out to see how many leaves were left on the trees after the windstorm and look at the Pin Oak.. not many left!
The leaves are now on our deck. :-)
And 3/4s of the pretty red Maple leaves are also blown away. I'm glad I got my photo of them before the storm!
I'm reading a new book.. by the same author as my last one, "Martin Marten", by Brian Doyle. My sister suggested it - it's about an Oregon guy who set out to sail the Pacific Ocean on a little fishing boat he'd rigged with some sails. I'm not far into it, but again, I will recommend it now as it's a very interesting read. And I love the ocean and I love sailing. Click HERE to find out more.
I am lecturing myself trying to talk myself into going swimming today. Who will win the argument? Homebythefire me or Youshoulddothisforyourheart me? I'm not sure yet. Who will win this epic war of good and evil? I'll let you know in a few days. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
