Happy Halloween

Hope every one has a happy and safe Halloween night.

Troy and I are handing out the treats here at home tonight, hubby has to work. We're going to build a fire in the firepit and hang out there for the evening. Hope we have fun. Last year we had 12 kids, wonder how many we'll have this year?

I accidently got hit in the face with a soccer ball at work today. Now I'm sitting here debating if I want to go the the hospital or not. I'll probably wait, and try to see my own doctor tomorrow. My face is sore, and it hurts if I take a deep breath in through my nose. And it's a little swollen. I suspect I'll have a nice shiner.

Picked up some yummy apples for myself today at Sobeys. Honeycrisp. Friends of ours gave me on the other day, and I totally enjoyed it. Was at Sobeys today and a girl asked me if I wanted to try a sample of apple. Tried it, and it was the same kind ... so off to the produce dept I went. They are a big apple, I eat half of one at a time. A sweet, but yet a little tart, taste. Go buy some!

Working on a pair of red and yellow socks for a friends daughter for Christmas. Using some acryllic yarn that I got at our local "dollar store"; sort of Harry Potter colors, but not really ... close enough to do.

Have a big pot of chicken soup on the stove, and it smells nice!

Have a good one!!

humm ... can't think of a title

OK, so here is a picture of Katie holding her whirligig. Not the best picture, but a picture. I'll get a better one of it sometime.
Last weekend was 4-H Provincial Show in Windsor. Katie had a felted purse and a jean leg wind sock that were both entered in competitions. The purse got 5th place, and the windsock got 7th. She was pleased with the results. What a nice weekend it was. Over 2000 4-H kids there. Along with sheep, goats, rabbits, cows, light horses, work horses, turkeys, chickens, geese and dogs. It was kind of like organized mass chaos :) Since Katie didn't have any competitions to do we got to watch a little bit of everything. And if you ever have a chance to go watch a 4-H tug-of-war .. DO IT! It's amazing to watch. They have 5 minutes, and everytime we watched it the middle of the rope hardly moved at all in the first couple of minutes.
I'm up to 18 pairs of socks done. Gave one pair to Mary for her birthday on Sunday (she turned one). Pair 14 has also been given away. I'll have to get pictures of 15, 16 & 17 before they go away. 18/52 for the year, guess I'm not going to meet the goal of 52 for the year ... oh well.
Troy will be home soon. When Katie gets home we have to rush her off to a dentist appt. Then I think we'll stop at the local "variety store" and do some browsing .. he has been getting some craft stuff in.
Have a good one!
Updated to add that a kitten is coming here this evening to be fostered. A black long haired little thing is all we know. If it's a boy it may have a home waiting for it. Or it may stay here a bit. Who knows. All I know is I'm getting a baby to cuddle with as I read the latest Harry Potter book (got it from the school library today ... just came in yesterday .. first one to borrow it!)
