The rain has stopped for a little bit!  What a messy couple of days with the steady rain that we have had. I know we need it, but it's just soooo dreary.  Not something that puts someone in a happy  mood, or maybe it does. That's what makes the world go round :). 
I'm having such a fun time celebrating my Birthday "month" lol.  If there is no one to share my time with, I find something to smile about. It's really not hard when you have a warped sense of humor ! I laugh at myself all the time. Who doesn't do something stupid at least one time during the day?? And if you can't laugh at yourself, then you are missing out!
Family and friends have made it so special. I thank each one of you!! I try to enjoy each day out of the year, but save October for the "extra" special.  Mostly FOODS that I want to dive into and not feel so horrible about.  I can say that some nights have made me feel miserable, BUT I have a smile on my face lol.  I will behave this weekend with that since I have enough stuff to keep me busy around the house. And that will  keep me out of the kitchen for a while.
Guess I'll start cleaning up my wool room and sewing room for starts today.  Now THAT will bring a smile, just playing and sorting through all my things. Tonight will be for stitching.  I'm trying to push myself to get back to hooking my big rug. I'm sure before the end of the month, some loops will be pulled!
Have a Gorgeous weekend, even if it starts raining again.... shhhhhhhh. (maybe it will hold off~~)

Good day everyone!  It's hard to believe that October is here. The "ish" part is that it's supposed to be 84 degrees today.  The leaves are changing, but the temp is still in Summer mode.  I'm  Not complaining. I wore jeans yesterday and thought this morning, no way. Shorts and sandals for another day!
Keeping busy this week with cleaning and getting some Fall decorations out. Not going to do too much. Just enough to put some color in a few rooms. 
I thought I'd share my last two stitching pieces with you.  I plan on framing them, but then plans seem to change with me from day to day.  I still have to age them some.  I have one more coverlet pattern to do for the grouping. Not when I'll start it, but it may be soon. I've really been enjoying watching/listening to the tv in the evening while doing this. I will be getting back to some hooking soon as well. It's just nice to take a break and switch things up now and then.

Time for another cup of coffee and then get my day going...  Hoping your day is filled with things you enjoy to do!
(and yes..... to some of you who are thinking it......  The celebrating has begun! Each day this month, I will be taking the time to do something for me - as well as doing something for someone else. Whether it be a smile, a phone call, an email, something/anything to let them know I'm thinking of them and that I care for them. )
