Small Update

I'm still working on my knit hat. I don't craft (knit or crochet) everyday.  I have more the last few months because honey has been off work.  He is a great help around the house when he's off. 
But he shall be going back this week therefore, more house chores to do, less craft time. 
Oh well, such as life. 

I got myself a Caron Cake this week.  

I started a ripple scarf with it. Hopefully it shall be finished for a Christmas gift.

We still had a 60 degree weekend for the first week of November. We went for a lovely walk and am so in awe of the colours of the trees this year.

Fall has come

Long time no blog.  
I seriously don't know where the days go.  Daily routines blur into weeks. 
I have my 3 gym days a week, rest and chores in between. Work.  
Life, gotta love it.

I have however gotten back some of my crochet knitting mojo. Maybe it's the season.  Fall weather does tend to inspire getting out the yarn and making something, anything.

Here's some projects I've been randomly working on.

Finished this baby blanket.

Finished a few more random granny squares.

I'm still working on this ripple blanket. Trying to keep going until I'm out of the colours.

Started a hat.

Scarf with super chunky yarn on my giant knitting kneedles.  This give you an arm workout.

And simple knit 2 purl 2 every two rows for a scarf.  I love the texture it makes. 

With this nice cooler fall weather, honey and I have gone for a few good long bike rides.
This summer was so hot I was not able to go out for many rides.

But it's been nice to enjoy watching the trees change.  Canada's maples trees have beautiful colour changes.  

The garden is pretty much done for the years.  We're still getting a few tomatoes. 

We finally got some cucumbers as well.

And I can't forget my fur babies.

Have a great weekend all!!

Time Flies

Seriously, where does time go?  It's almost September.  I haven't blogged since April.  This bit of knitting is the first I've picked up in a long time.  My focus this year has been mostly been on myself, my health and weight loss.  I also started my own garden of vegetables this year.  I guess between that, and my 4 fur babies, working and keeping the house it's does fly by.  

I am not so much Vegan anymore.  I tried for a good 8 months.  Then I started slipping with some cheese.  And randomly bits of chicken here and there.  These days I still try and stick to it mostly except for a bit of chicken and some cheese throughout a week. 

I started some seeds in a little greenhouse this year.  Not all varieties of seeds took but it was all a learning curve.  Green onions, green beans, snap peas, tomatoes seeds, cucumber, carrot, corn and sunflowers were planted but really I only got the corn, green beans, green onions and sunflowers to really grow full.  I grew one snap pea.  Yeah.  I ended up buying a tomato plant already started which took off well.  I replanted cucumber seeds and carrots later. 


I've been working hard at the gym.  At least 3 days a week and some swimming.  All around I have just been more active.  Keeping house cleaner and bicycling when weather permits as it's been an extremely hot and humid summer here in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. 

I still pick up this project here and there when watching TV at times. I am hoping my crochet mojo will come back more in the cooler weather.  I am looking forward to the fall.  

Kitties are doing well.  

This guy feels right at home as you can tell. He likes lots of love.

Tigger is still kicking as skinny as he is.  Loves to sit outside when he can.

Pippa, my snowy princess is the sleeping champ.  I thought Keegan was considering he's 14 now (Below left)

Happy weekend all!!
