Well Hello All,
I fully intended to write a post yesterday, but after starting the day in a dental chair, by the time I got to work I was swamped....
Yup, the dental work I had done before vacation (repairing a broken tooth) didn't hold (as my dentist thought it might not...) and Friday afternoon part of the work he did plus another piece of tooth came out. After my visit yesterday morning I now have a temporary crown and the permanent one should arrive in a week or two. Yikes! Just another jewel in my mouth - lol. Luckily there was no real pain with it other than my tongue scraping raw from the rough edge of the tooth. As long as I didn't move my tongue I was fine - so eating and talking were issues. A diet plan!
We did have a nice weekend, visiting my oldest brother and his wife in Delaware. My nephew and great nephew were there and Colin & Mailing drove down as well. My great nephew just turned 5 and oh boy! What a ton of energy...and noise...LOL. I completely forgot to get any pictures. That was Saturday and we were home in time to do grocery shopping and settle in for the night.
The "Better Late Than Never" title was inspired by this:
Our first Morning Glory blossom this year opened on Sunday, October 13th! Geeze, we used to get a ton of blooms every year, but lately it has been a struggle. There are some buds and hopefully more will open before this plant gets killed by frost.
Fletch also picked up several mums a few weeks ago. One of them is going gang-busters:
Look at how full this is!
On the knitting front, I started knitting a blanket for Colin. I forgot to snap a picture, but it is not very far along. He requested a blanket for wrapping up in while watching TV and picked out a very bright "Canary" yellow color. I ordered the bulky yarn from KnitPicks and it arrived while we were on vacation. I started it over the weekend and after 16 rows realized that I had completely forgotten the border rows - lol. So, that was ripped out and now the border is almost finished. Bulky yarn with size 11 needles is a little tough on my fingers, but I am getting used to it and hope to get this finished before too long.
I also started knitting a pair of socks for my SIL in CO for Christmas.
I forget the brand of yarn - will get that to y'all later. The pattern is Hermione's Everyday Socks and the yarn is so busy that the pattern doesn't really show, but at least it keeps me from getting bored. The yarn with all the colors in it reminds me of confetti, so I am calling them Hermione Confetti Socks.
Still nuts at work...and will be through the end of October/beginning of November. It's this way every year. So, I need to run, but will get back here when I can. I'm catching a few blogs now and then, not always able to comment though. Hope everyone is doing well!
