Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! The ghost and goblins are on their way to get treats! My 2 little goblins will be here on Friday and we are going trick or treating on Saturday in the neighborhood. I have instructed Poppy that he is to film the whole event. I have a few knitting projects going, and I just ordered some Malabrigo in silky merino for a shawl that I want to make for me......

I am developing a hand soap and hand cream for knitters that I hope to sell on Etsy. It is heavenly. Once I get some in production, I am planning to give some away. Stay tuned!

The holidays are fast approaching and I am already starting to get in the spirit. I so love this time of year, and I want it to be COLD. Really COLD. Some snow would be nice. I am going the simple method for Christmas this year. Minimal, simple decorations, food and gifts. I want to make it more about Jesus and less about gifts. How are you planning your holiday this year?

Til tomorrow (or whenever)~~

Here it is, the end of October and fall is here! I am looking forward to Halloween this weekend since Brian and Anna are coming here to trick or treat. I am also looking forward to Talladega this Sunday. Haven't been to a race in a while. I have been extremely busy with work, family, church and trying to stay one step ahead of life. (I know that it is impossible). I have been diligently working on ways to save and cut expenses, and I have done very well. I am still amazed at how little you can live on if you really try. I think that sometimes God just says "Whoa, you need to back up and regroup". And then he makes that happen, whether you are ready or not. I am blessed and I try to remember that every day.
