Monday bits...

Little Mr. Man and I spent some time this morning watching the birds since he was home from school with a nasty little cold.
The birds really are quite lovely against the white snow!
This picture doesn't do the birds any justice, but isn't there something about that gray?

This pair of fingerless mitts is on it's way to a best friend in Massachusetts.
Happy Belated Birthday E!
More of these are in the works...
I just started another pair over the weekend.
Christmas is coming!

This little note taker was delivered to another birthday girl this morning!
Happy Birthday J.!
My aunties suggested the little felt bird on the bottom.
Isn't helpful to get a few more pair of eyes to point out what should be obvious?
Happy Hobbies!

Bits and Pieces...

My Status:

I recently resigned from my job (that I love) and am so very happy with the decision I made. However, I will continue to work until my replacement is hired and trained. Hopefully sooner rather than later! My hope is to have most of December free for enjoying the Christmas preparations and last minute gift making, but I'll happily go with whatever happens. Regardless, I'm making plans for the future including getting back on a regular schedule for home-keeping, mothering and hobbying. At this point all of those things are being handled in an exhausted haphazard manner and I feel as if I'm riding on a roller coaster in Chaos Land!


I'm about 10 rows from finishing the second "fetching" glove. I'll give a peek of the completed project in a day or so. I completed another note taker for my sister-in-law's birthday. I made some improvements as you can see below.


After spending Saturday afternoon taking care of some of the outdoor fall chores, we woke up to this on Monday morning. My little people thought it was "soooo beautiful...." It really is but I wasn't prepared to get the rest of the winter gear out yet!

Happy Hobbies!

An afternoon outside...

The sky was a nice mix of gray.

The little people were busy raking leaves.

HobbyHubby was busy raking too!

I worked at cutting back all of my herbs.
(something I should have done a month ago)

Today we went to church and are keeping cozy inside.
Happy Hobbies!
