We had a wonderful week, the weather was unbelievable, the Fall winds shook the last of the leaves off the trees and littered the streets with mass of golds, yellows and reds. A sight to behold for sure. Our Thanksgiving was spent very quietly around our home puttering and be thankful for our children and our life. We went looking for houses in town that we thought we could down-size too but when we came home and realized just how lucky we are to have such a wonderful house and yard.....it is much too much to think about relocating just for the sake of less square feet. And I was told by my son " Do you know what paper work is involved if you move?" Gosh never crossed my mind..........and besides, Steve would not take the move well. He is quite used to his surroundings and his domain. So here we stay for at least for the next 3 years and 8 months or soooo.
Anyways back to the main topic......these beauties!
Pumpkins made from sweaters. I got the idea from hummadeedledee blogspot, she made hers from cream colored sweaters but when I saw this beige nubbly wool, well it was a natural. A few twigs, leaves and some ribbon and shazammmm! Sweater Pumpkins!!!
Ok I promise that will be it for the pumpkins...........unless of course something pops up. But for now I am focusing on making a few things for the girls for their homes. Jane will be moving shortly back to Kamloops and into a beautiful new condo downtown, and Kait has become "Susie homemaker" ( I know I have a hard time wrapping that one around my head also) so there are a few things I need to make for their humble abodes.
Trish and I did a 16km run before our turkey dinner last night and this morning I am very thankful that we did. The scale does not lie! It was so nice to be able to sit down and it. did. not. matter. what we ate, it was all a bonus.
I do believe that the remains of this are a true testament to my culinary deeds. It was probably the best pie I have ever made and to tell you the truth tasted.....yummmmmmmmmmmmmy!!!!
