What Month Is It?

The calendar says September, but it really feels more like November today. The wind and rain coming down from Tropical Storm Ernesto have really made it a dreary day outside. I feel bad for anyone who had planned a Labor Day BBQ! Luckily we didn’t really have any plans. It would be the perfect night to start a fire in the fireplace and curl up on the couch watching a movie, that’s for sure! I don’t mind this weather. I think the awful heat of summer is still fresh in my mind and I welcome cooler temperatures. (Plus, I am so excited to once again be able to wear cardigans. Hooray for the cardigan sweater!)

Today I did a bit of knitting on Felted Bowl #3 (from One Skein). The instructions say to use a 24″ circular needle for the bowls and I would love to see someone do that! I’m knitting the small bowl and I had to start with DPNs. For the large bowls, I’ve always used a 16″ needle. That has to be a misprint. I’m eager to finish this little guy up so I can start on the purse for the purse swap, whee! I love the pattern and I will probably end up making one for myself, too.

And yes, obviously, I switched back to WordPress. I just can’t commit to a blogging program, I guess! No, actually I never intended to use Blogger for the long-term; I just needed the time to set up WP again. It is much more elegant than old Blogger (though I have to hold Blogger in my heart since I did use it for so very long at the beginning — way back in 2000, holy crow!)

Tomorrow I hope to finish up the bowl and just do stuff around the house (like put away the mounds of laundry sitting in baskets) and figure out a storage solution for J.’s Playmobil stuff. Monday I’m dragging D. to Sears to help me pick out new glasses. I lost my current pair. (Yes, I know I lost the pair before that, too.). I have looked high and low and they are not to be found. The other day I went to Sears and picked out a few frames I like and now I need a second opinion. It’s a good thing my eyesight isn’t too bad. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend (at least here in the U.S.). Enjoy!

    We contemplated building a fire here last night too. Didn’t though… seems so darned early! Still though, I hope this cool (however some sun would be nice) weather stays put for months to come.

    We have playmobil issues here too. J. has a huge collection of the stuff and as you know, it’s all either huge awkward things or teeeeeny tiny little parts. We’re not very organized, just bits here and there.

    Love the new layout. I love seeing everyone’s blogs turn in to fall! 🙂

    You always find the neatest layouts. How do you do that? hehe 🙂 I’m glad that you’re back to WP and are enjoying it. I can’t get over our weather ~ usually August is the *worst* month in Indiana. It *totally* feels like fall right now. I love it! I’m ready for autumn. I’m thinking about going past an apple orchard with Luke tomorrow!
