Good morning!  I hope y’all are warm!  It froze here I’m SA last night and man is it cold!!!!

First I want to thank all those veterans out there!  Thank you for your service!

This past week I went to the deer lease!  I was fun watching these sheep!

But it was pretty cold and too muddy to hunt so we came home and went to pluckers...my favorite fat girl restaurant!!

Antonio has a soccer game and we got some great pics!

What have I been knitting you ask?  Well socks and mitts!!

Darlene seems to be in a hat mood and I had just the yarn for a hat for Shyla....so I started it for her....Darlene will finish it....it’s a Scottish Tam that will be felled!

 Darlene finished a Wallaby for Paige and it looks great on me!  So maybe the one I’m making Paige will stay at my house?

I also started a crochet blanket to work on during these cold days we have been having lately....I love this pattern.  It’s called the Good Vibes Throw

That’s all I have!  Have a great week!!!

Happy happy happy knitting!

Crochet Squares

Hey everyone...how are you doing?  I am doing A-Ok I guess.....can you believe it is already November?  I can't.....pretty soon Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then New Years and then 2020!!!  WTF?  Wow!

Anyway, I have not been up to much. I finished the blanket for my trainer and his wife

Other than that....just making squares....a friend's grandson was recently diagnosed with Cancer.....so we (her friends) are making squares to make prayer blanket for the grandson......this is pretty much the only thing I have worked on lately.

I did get to see Celeste this past week at one of her volleyball games....her, Alessandro and Cat.....but I did not snap a picture of Cat because she was too busy running around with Antonio.

Then it was time for Halloween....Here is Paige and Antonio

Then I got pics of Alexxis and Mario

and I have to share that my nephew was the pope!  Here he is with his girlfriend:

Paige made me some amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup for Halloween (I went to her house to pass out candy)

Well, it really put me in a soup mood....so I made Zuppa Toscana:

I have tons of leftovers....I gave some to Paige and Kody and fed some to Jaime...but I still have 2 or 3 more at home....which will be my dinner for the next few days I guess

That is pretty much all I have....here is a picture of me in my favorite PJ's (with matching mug) settling in to make squares and a picture of a very pretty sunrise this morning......its hard to believe we had an extra hour this past weekend...but we did.

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Antonio party, Halloween, random musings!

SO......I think I told you last week that it was gonna be Antonio's birthday on Wednesday.....well, he had his birthday and his party.......a great time was had (all the picture/video overload at the end of the post)

It is almost Halloween, so Paige and friends carved pumpkins

Antonio had soccer.....it was a cool 51 degrees.....

One day this week I came home to Jax having made a muddy mess on my bed......and this past Sunday I had a new puppy in the house for a bit (ignore all the wood chips on my rug.....Jax loves to chew wood and I cannot always keep up with all the vaccuuming)!

and I have a picture of Kody's costume....he is a Party Pooper......so funny!

I crocheted on 2 baby blankets.....this one:

And this one:

I wore my Torbellino to work

Lastly, I knit on some socks......at the party

Birthday/Party Picture/Video overload:

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
