My husband absolutely loves the water but I am more of a rain and clouds person. We have had such a long, hot summer and fall here in southern California. I am really looking forward to cooler temps. I'm probably the opposite of most people as I like clouds, rain, mountains and trees; most people prefer sun, sand and water! Keep your fingers crossed as we're suppose to get some rain on Sunday and Monday :)
In a previous post, I shared about this shawl I made. I completed the shawl and just needed to block it but I was not happy with the size of it. The photo above shows version #1 of this shawl.
Since I had so much yarn left over, I frogged the border and made the body of the shawl longer. I altered the design of the border. It turned out great as you can see in version #2 above. I just need to block it now and add the tassels (one day!)
One day this week, we took our lunch to the lake and ate by the shore and watched all the wildlife. This is a manmade lake in our little city but it's so pretty; especially with all the different birds who flock to the shore. The city will soon be hosting their Christmas tree lighting at the lake. It makes for a beautiful site.
Speaking of Christmas, the holidays are fast approaching. My family will be celebrating at my daughter and son-in-law's home. She already has her menu printed and ready to go. Isn't it lovely? And, it's our family tradition to play monopoly until the wee hours of the morning. Why? Because, there's a pot of money the winner gets to take home! I am in charge of making appetizers. I'm thinking of doing some type of cheese puffs and maybe a meat empanada with dipping sauce.
Ah, Lilly. What can I say? She is my constant companion. I can't believe that she is 11 years young! Poor little kitty, she has been a bit confused with the time change as her little built in clock tells her when it's time to eat. Cats are such amazing creatures.
That's about all that's happening around here. Thank you for your kind comments and for visiting Lilly My Cat. Lilly always loves to hear from you!
With my best wishes,
