some grocery shopping needed doing after we'd been gone off and on for almost two weeks
and I spent some time working on the beading of this piece
moving along slowly
since we had helped with pumpkin picking at our daughter's we also knew there would be pumpkin picking at our house
these five beauties are sitting on the deck right outside my garage where they can finish turning completely orange
there will be some good eating out of those!
and there should be a lot of good eating out of these too
the two orange ones are hubbards and we had a bumper crop of butternuts too
these are hanging out in the house for now, while we decide when we'll cut, clean, cook and freeze
and right now the living room looks like a laundry
before the last load got finished yesterday the dryer quit working -- it goes round and round but doesn't get hot, so I hung all the kitchen towels over the rods on the warping board to let them dry
obviously we'll have to do something about that issue
and this morning when I got the oil changed in the van I got the bad news that it needs about $800 worth of work
geesh -- could use a break here!
