I have started getting ready for Christmas, or at least starting to make some Christmas outfits. I felt quite merry yesterday knitting these little things, even if it was nearly 80 degrees outside. I had thought about putting some Christmas music on just for some extra inspiration, but I didn't want hubby coming home thinking I had really gone crazy!Our wonderful hanging flower basket at the front of the house is still going strong, some of the flowers just about touch the ground now, it is hard to believe that it has been hanging there since the beginning of May, the fun part is trying to take it down when it has finished blooming, it is extremely heavy, thank goodness for hubby's!Although Autumn is my favorite time of year I sure don't like the spiders that seem to appear every year. It is not the first time while walking out in the garden that I have gone face first into a cobweb, after trying to wipe it away your next thought, rather quickly I might add is...where is the spider! It usually involves a quick trip indoors to check your self in the mirror just to make sure that you don't have a passenger taking a free ride on you! So now when I go out, if I remember, I do what we call the Washington wave...waving your arms back and forth in front of you just to make sure there is no cobweb in your path. I had a chuckle the other day as my neighbor was in her garden doing the same wave, so if ever you visit us here in Washington during Autumn you will either think us very friendly because we "wave" a lot or that we are all having some kind of a fit!
Have a lovely Tuesday!
