Halloween, and 87 degrees!

We found ourselves at Lynsey's horseshow today. Halloween, 87 degrees at least.
this little piggy (Brummel Dominic Zoltner) was so good the whole time!

"I love you so much I could eat you mumma"

we've decided to try to do a book about LOOP IT UP, and bring it to the American Craft Council Show this year! 1-2-3 GO!

I've, yet again, avoided the halloween shenanigans...... it is a little insane around here. Everyone is running around half naked. I sometimes block out what halloween feel like now because it was so much better as a kid and that is what I choose to remember.

Tomorrow is homework, making, CLEANING OUR HOUSE!

saturday can be a good good day.

Today has been lovely.

I work up to Jilly cleaning the house. De-dogging is a very important piece of the week for us--- we're again up to three.
And to a chilly, surprisingly autumnal morning! Riva and Topo and I took a nice long walky-walk in which we did not break into a sweat! probably the las time THAT happened was last winter in Massachusetts!

We went to the farmers market, the bean, brighter day....... all the best places for a saturday morning.

In cool weather, there is nothing better than cooking and making.... here are some pieces of dinner:

now; off to sew a little.
LOOP IT UP on Monday!! LET THE WILD RUMPUS BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(we saw where the wild things are last night... it would appear...)

a very sad day

Vandell Bivens, father of three of our most beloved kids at the YMCA died in a shooting that happened downtown last weekend. this is what the other kids made for them.

somedays are so full of the unbelivably good and the unbelievably bad.

the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

overload blues

I wish I could just walk out these blue doors and have a second to just stand there.
School can be so terrifying sometimes.... especially on top of the rest of it. (this might be why you are supposed to do school BEFORE you do the rest of it...)

missing my pamy, missing my lexi, missing my cayewah wah wah. wondering why on earth i am up at 3am feeling overwhelmed by school!
