Winter is Upon Us

I could sense the chill when I finally pried open my eyes this morning. My spider senses were correct.
This is what I woke to:

And just think, some of it had already melted. I don't actually step outside until 900-ish.

On a more fun note:
Check out this neato torpedo stocking stuffer:

Finally. A mouse/night light!! It comes in all sorts of colours. The orange however spoke to me. It asked that I adopt it. I just couldn't refuse.
It moves very quickly across the screen as well. We found at Wal Mart for under $10. What can I say? I'm attracted to things that are very shiny!

There is actually not much else to share at this point. I'm happy Friday is almost here. I can't wait to get back to sewing my curtains. I need a full day for that task. I hate having to reset the machine. Napoleon is not very helpful in that department. Just when everything is located comfortably, the little terror tries to run with the fabric or the actual pedal for the machine :( He is very committed to being the center of attention. Lord help us if I look at anything else for more than a minute, even if it is inanimate.

Hope you all have awesome plans for the week end. I would love to hear what you all have on tap. Night all!

Just Another Evening at Home

Here is a little update on my wheels. It is still sick :(. Apparently, the little heat I had felt coming through the vents earlier in the week was actually a minor event of flamage. Who knew? So, my truck is still under the watchful care of the mechanics.
We enjoyed a great supper. It wasn't anything spectacular. We just had a craving for Chinese food. What better to wash it down than with a nice bottle of sparkling wine:

It was also a wonderful aid to help clear off a few little projects and start a few more.

I completed the back portion of the little sweater for a special little person I have yet to meet.

I made a huge dent in my curtains for the living room. There are four panels that resemble this one.

I completed my section for the Traveling Scarf group:

I knit up a scarf just for me.

I need to feel a bit of extra warmth since we have been hoofin' it for most of the week end.

Rebel was a great supervisor:

He is careful to inspect every stitch.

And on another off topic thread from my mind, I have yet to take down my Hallowe'en decorations.

I just wish we could celebrate for longer than a night. Perhaps a week long event?

I hope all your weekends was just as much fun, or more so. Enjoy the start to another possible good week!
