This was the scene two weeks ago today. We closed up the trailer for the season...in the rain! The process was about half done here when I took the picture. It's always a sad time of year but hopefully next summer will be a better one for us and my health. We would really like to spend more time here.
Dennis and I actually just got home from driving up to check for damage after yesterdays wind. All was okay except the tarp you see covering the chairs, etc. had to be retied.
We even had some snow on Mt. Spokane earlier this week after the clouds cleared. Yuck. It's too early for this. :-)
I thought I would show you this cute necklace my sister sent me. She is so sweet to me. Her husband has been very sick and had to have surgery and is now going through radiation and chemo. Could you please keep Mike in your prayers? And yet, she still took the time to send this to me. Gosh, she used to be mean to me when we were growing up. She admits it too! But now? We are close and I love her so much. That saying is so right that there is nothing like sisters. We will defend each other up one side and down the other and I know that she'll always be there for me.
I made myself a hat. And took a picture of me wearing it. I dislike pictures of me intensely but I took one anyway for Instagram. This hat literally took only about 2 hours or so with chunky yarn. So fast and easy even though it looks hard with cables and everything!
I've begun a SAL with Vicki, (StitchyMcFloss). It's a sweet little precious moments style cross stitch nativity scene. We're having fun emailing and texting each other to see how the other is doing. Please feel free to join in, we just started yesterday! The links to the free pattern are on her blog which you can find on my sidebar.
All of the names in the (***) are the names of the blogs of these sweet people I've mentioned.
Well, I know you've all been missing my sweet little Piper haven't you? Her preschool has been observing special days in October and Tuesday she was supposed to dress up in her favorite sports teams uniform. Here she is in her Nebraska Cheerleaders outfit. I think Dennis' sister got it for her. We hope it's not an omen of the next place they'll live. We're rooting for Spokane at the top of our lungs. Here other Grandparents are hoping for Omaha so we'll have to see! Maybe we'll be retiring back to Nebraska after all! Isn't she a doll?
And this was this morning. She asked Mommy to take a picture of her and Polly to send to Daddy at work today.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and a wonderful week ahead.
