Getting Ready for October

It is becoming more fall-like as the days pass.  Huntsville Botanical Gardens have the annual fall plant sale tomorrow.  I am always pleased at the selection they have and at the amount we bring home.  Constellation Con in Huntsville starts the 16th for all you miniature gamers which leaves me as caretaker to a little one for 3 days.  Probably that will not be conducive to getting much accomplished in Stitchy world.  I think some baking is in order those days.

Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year.  We started the celebrations this past week-end with the opening of Birmingham Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo.  Saturday’s attempt was cancelled due to the fact that the zoo sits high above sea level and was in the middle of a rain-heavy cloud which drenched us with tiny droplets of moisture which fell as very small raindrops.  When they announced the cancellation, we left to find that a few miles away where the altitude was not so high, the clouds were just clouds and there was no rain.  We tried again Sunday afternoon and a good time was had by all.  Unfortunately, yours truly had to sit in the car with an iPad.  Walking has become a chore.

The end of the month will find me in cataract surgery so very little stitching will be done until I get new glasses at the end of November.  I am regulated to kitting up charts and doing a small amount of sewing for Christmas.  It has become hard to do any closeup work of any kind.

Until then, I hope your Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays are the best.
