It must be all the seeds we roast.
I think Sugey liked to ride in the pumpkin cart the best.
I wonder if the bumpy ones have more seeds?
After the apple making, I went outside to watch the kids on the skate ramps and spun up some mango-y goodness.

How amazing is this??????
For the past two months, I have been sleuthing to find out who my secret sister is. She's a tricky one!!! Before I received my package, I had "favorited" her Amigurumi Zombies. I had no idea it was her, my spoiler, until I received her package. The funny thing is I had many guesses to who she was and none were right. BUT, I had been admiring her work in our group and reading through her blog, never putting it all together. When I opened my package all I saw at first were the two dolls. I cried and laughed at the same time. This has been one of the best knitting experiences I've had. Not only have I gotten really cool stuff, I have made a friend forever. To me, that is the most important thing. I can not thank her enough and she always seems to come through at exactly the right moments in my life. Thank you Jo Anne. With all my heart.
My favorite little Zombies.
Some of the softest sock yarn ever!
Look at all my wonderful goodies.

( I LOVE YOU ANNETTE) (;
And this is what my house looks like when it is raining.
All the neighborhood boys congregate in the back room to play video games.

This is a Buddhist picture that I find extremely beautiful.
Represents peace and harmony to me. Plus the colors are inspiring. Rainbow is my favorite.
So, in keeping with peace and harmony, I present one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost.
Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
This is one of my first attempts at spinning yarn.
This is a drop spindle and on it, is pure alpaca roving.
I have finished the Branching out scarf for my aunt.
Next, I will be making one for my other aunt. I do have a bunch of great aunts and uncles. (:
I received my first shipment in my Dexter stitch marker club.
Of course, the wonderful Torii made these. I absolutely love the egg one. The one on the blue background represents the opening scene of the show. She hit it right on!!!!!!
Here is our experiment on how much oxygen the atmosphere contains.
First, we got a bowl and put a candle in the middle. Then, filled it with colored water.
Keep a glass nearby to cover the candle completely.
Light the candle and then cover it with the glass.
Once the candle is out, the water will fill 1/5 of the cup. This shows that the air in the atmosphere has 1/5 percent of oxygen in it.
Here the kids are drawing diagrams of how the earth began. Did you know that the first cell started in water? Everything on this earth, came from the torrential rains that covered the earth.
Which brings me to Kailen's boyscout meeting.
Just a little funny mixed it. (: It did downpour today and we were caught in it during the meeting.
