Saturday was a day highly anticipated around here (at least for me) -- it was so important that I'd added it to my Google Calendar so I wouldn't miss it: Local Electronics Recycling Day!! I had three vacuum cleaners, a bag plump full of cords & connectors & chargers & remotes, plus an old drill that I have been eager to dispose of (and I'm sure I could have dug a little deeper and found even more)! I was a little late on my departure from home, but that actually turned out to be a good thing -- I drove right up to the drop-off point and was on my way in no time. Last time, I was in a line of waiting cars that stretched around the block.
It was a gorgeous day and with a little more time on my hands than anticipated, I suggested to Kate that we call around and rent a small Uhaul to move the rest of her bigger furniture from the storage unit. We ended up having to drive to Green Bay, but we were given a brand new cargo van -- 57 miles on the odometer when we got it -- and we got the job done. It was so new that the "new car" smell was a bit overwhelming and we had to open the windows!
Rusty & I drove out to the Forst Inn in Tisch Mills for their 1st Anniversary Gala on Saturday evening. It was a lovely drive, and the celebration was fun.
There's definite change afoot. Are you feeling it? We could see it just a bit as we took the drive -- there's a ways to go before we're full-on fall around here, but it's coming.
Perhaps a bit ahead of ourselves, Junah and I worked on a seasonal banner last week -- it was supposed to have some fall leaves along with the turkeys, but we were shorted that element in the kit, so it has much more "Thanksgiving" than "Autumn" flavor. (Reminder to self: Avoid the felt/glue combo!) I love this turkey's jaunty hat band!
Similar to Kat, I somehow wound up with more stitches than required when it was time to start the lace pattern on Savage Heart (despite having just verified -- by counting -- that I was on track) and I took care of it in much the same manner as she, too. I'm currently just a couple rows shy of the exciting 3-needle bind-off that will join the two sides!! I'm really excited to have a new sweater for myself!
Finally, this caught my eye as I passed through the kitchen last night:
It's a mug that Annie gave me quite a few years ago with photos of Mack & Addie that mostly I'd taken, and this "decorated mug" cracked me up.
I hope you had a great weekend!
