Crazy Lights

You ever seen one of those yards… 

at Christmas time…

that makes your car come to a complete stop all by itself…

just so you can sit there and gawk?

As beautiful as it is, all I can think is, “Holy Cow…the light bill.”

Autumn Time

Perhaps I take pictures of this same lovely stuff year after year, but, oh, my goodness–I can’t help myself.

I wander around out back thinking that I’ll just snap a couple of pictures, and be done with it and then something magical happens.

Nothing is as it was last year. The greens seems way brighter…

the red, so much more brilliant…

and when did the juniper bush grow those pretty little pods?

New browns and greens and yellows and reds that Autumn has never, ever come up with before!

All crisp, all unique and all beautiful…

just like every, single year.

My Boy’s Bucket List

When my Daney-boy told me that he was taking is sweet little family to Boston–AND to his first actual Patriot’s game–well, I knew something special was in order. I grabbed the appropriate colors of my favorite Caron yarn and got to work. With three different patterns and some embroidered patches from Ebay, Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear had some awesome new hats for the special day.

As you can see–they were a hit!!

Of course the Patriot’s did their part too and put on an unforgettable show right where my boy could see it, up close. Good job, Tom Brady!
