Already. Although I have much of my Christmas done, I still feel like I have  a lot to do to get ready. And it’s two months away.

But the events are commencing. Blane’s birthday is two weeks away. Which means I better get cracking on the packaging of the presents. I have them. I just need to send them. And I have a Ravelry Swap to complete. I have the stuff, just need to send. And a quilt top to finish tonight and send.  There seems to be a common send theme going on here. And I don’t like to feel rushed with my sending.

So, last week was Halloween. That was fun. We had a big party at work with costumes and lots of food.

This would be Lizzie Borden doing a little styling on the zombie


LIzzie with Miss Kitty, a Witch, and a Pirate


And Viking Man. I guess there’s lots of the Norwegians up in Ballard. Who knew? 


The food was unsurpassed.


I ate my own lunch as I was sticking to a diet. I was so good sticking to said diet I ate about 5 desserts.


Like who’s passing up the chocolate fountain??? In my defense, I only ate the fruit.

Saturday was wiinnddyyyyyy. I posted my new windblown hair bouffant on Facebook--


Pretty Crazy.

I, however, wasn’t the only person braving the wind. These people braved the rain too. (It didn’t rain the whole time I was out)


Because we can….

I went up to Seattle on Saturday too. Traffic was unusually irritating. The 520 bridge to the East side was closed due to wind, and there were massive power outages north of where I was going. And just the weather itself seemed to confuse drivers. Unknown to the cause of that as weather like this happens every so often here. Maybe like drivers when the first snow falls. Over and over again.

I finally got to my event, Knit Fit, met up with my homies, browsed the market, and had this delicious pumpkin latte….


Almost too pretty to drink. Almost. I also found a nice quilt store tucked away right next to the coffee shop. Sweet.

Sunday was relax in front of football day, after running 9 miles and grooming the dog. You have to love the Soggy Doggy. It makes life so much easier.

And I had a lovely chat with Laura, who remains my blog muse, even though I have no recent picture because of my lack of blogging skillz the last two times I was there. Still, the chat was lovely.

Even the cats were relaxed


Sort of.



Lastly, I never posted the deer who was crashing the Halloween event at the elementary school.

Is this the way to the Halloween Party? Watch for cars. Stay in the crosswalk.


On my way…….


                           Hey, wait up

That would be life in the city.
