Knitting, Dogs and More: Saturday (oops forgot so....) Sunday Sky

Saturday (oops forgot so....) Sunday Sky

Saturday Sky

Well, at least I'm getting better. This time I remembered on Sunday instead of the middle of the following week. I thought it would be great to chronicle the weather this way. We've heard of extreme's in weather and we've been very lucky with our usual last bit of warm weather before colder weather hits.

Signs of Fall Norhtern California Style

A neighbor around the corner from us has grapes planted in their front yard. Their house looks like a mini vinyard and it's kind of neat. Very striking this last week as one leaf has turned but the rest are still lively green. I'll have to give them a copy of a picture, just 'cause it is so cool! Maybe they can use it on cards or something.

Things I haven't figured out yet! (Part I)

1. How to do everything you want and need to do. Playing with Esther, Knitting, Scrapbooking, various assorted crafts, digital photography as well as work and taking care of the house all compete for time. How do you do all or most of it? I need better organization and my friends tell me I'm better at this than most. UGH!

2. How do you get rid of excess toys? I read you should do this with your child. This just turned into a big conflict that lasted the whole afternoon for us. I tried many different tactics which unfortuantely also included childish behavour that my child is copying today. After trying calm reasoning I resorted to the following: (begging, whining, threatening, guilt, sneaking a few things in the trash and donate pile).

I take these things harder than I should. Today I feel irritable and lacking as a Mom. Oh well, we are off to a local Nursery that has lots of kid activities for Halloween and fall with Grandma this afternoon so that should brighten our day.

Oh I think it is the slow creeping in of Autumn that makes us all feel unsettled. It happens to me, then in Spring I feel much more in control!! Have a happy Halloween!!!

I've got that same thing going on: tons of projects swirling around in my head and I want to knit them all. Oh, and there's lots of books I'd like to read too. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

Hi Tori! I can relate to wanting to do it all and not having the time, and I don't have a 4 year old!!! May I suggest you look at this website called flylady.net and see if there is some insight, inspiration, ideas there for you. I've used it, i still think of certain principles that help, such as, if I buy undies, a 3 pack, I then throw out my worse 3 pair or I try to double it, throw out the worse 6 pair. It works. And if you just want some girl talk about it....i'm here for you! Hugs
