That time of year....

Yup! It is definitely that time of year...again....

Sigh.....

The signs are undeniably there.....

Sigh.....

Today, Sugarbaby and I, along with her friends from her Girls on Track homeschooling group,  ran in our first race, a 5K Reindeer Run. And we finished!!! Sugarbaby finished in about 39:50. Just totally awesome! I ran a wee bit ahead but I was so busy looking at all the people that I didn't see my time. I do know it was under 32:00 since as I walked back to start looking for Sugarbaby, the clock was ticking at about 32 minutes and something.

And even though it doesn't officially arrive for a few more weeks, the signs are even more obvious...

Winter is here!!!!

Sigh.....

And you all know what winter means, don't you?!!!!

Around here, it means...........

Stewarts peppermint stick ice cream

Stewarts Peppermint Stick ice cream!!!!! Mr. U lives for December when Stewarts has this special ice cream in their freezers. But grab it quick!!! It is gone before Christmas!!!!

And yeah, of course, winter means.....snow, too!!!!

Sigh.....

The kids were all excited when the first few flakes starting falling this afternoon.

Nature Boy made his first snowball...
the first snowball!

and it has begun to accumulate a bit...

snow on the evergreens

but have no fear!!! It will melt before we are stuck with it through the winter months!!!!

Sigh.....

These trees, however, are snowless....

My tree quilt so far...

Working on my wonky tree quilt and planning to add wonky geese to the outer border...

On my wall.. adding wonky flying geese

Always good to have more than one project, more than one craft going at the same time. Happens a lot around this time of year!!!!


my latest knitting project

Sigh.....
