The cold has come -- perhaps temporary? I've known too many "short sleeve Thanksgivings" (and sometimes even Christmases) in Florida to feel confident, but right now it is deliciously cold and crisp. Yesterday was the first real cold day we've had -- complete with rainy drizzle. The perfect day for a lunch of scrambled eggs (with raw smoked cheddar, otherwise known as the absolute best cheese I've ever tasted), homemade toast, and honey.
The littles recently learned "Criss Cross Apple Sauce, Spiders crawling up your back, Worms sliding down, Cool breeze, Tight Squeeze, And now you've got the chillies" from their aunts, and have been reciting it at all opportune moments. Squeezes from little chubby hands are the best, aren't they?
|Do you see those cheeks? They are so plump and inviting that I kiss them at least a hundred times a day.|
Potted mums are gracing our table (until I manage to kill them, that is), bringing a little Autumn cheer inside. Several of the $10 pots were marked down to $3 at Lowe's, for no discernible reason. They might have been a tad less full and healthy than the other pots. but they were far from clearance material in my opinion.
Rosa is keeping warm with a new infinity scarf, knitted with leftover yarn from her "Meret." I'll have to do a post on it soon -- I used a simple lace pattern from a vintage needlework book, and made it long enough to go around her neck twice. It looks so sweet with her beret! Mittens are on the horizon for both kiddos; I think I have enough courage to attempt them.
I have a few knitting projects for the one-on-the-way to share soon... which just may give a clue as to the gender of our little one!
