October Activity

 My continuing education in the area of knitting is making a difference.  I watch podcasts recorded by mostly young knitters and I learn stuff.  Yay!  The socks I made for Bill are a tiny bit wonky after a soak and time on the sock blockers, but they are DONE and there are TWO (major accomplishment!) 

We're all still living in the glow of Noah's arrival.  Isn't he precious?
 Walks around the neighborhood are very Octoberish - glowy and light.  


 Timothy is a napper!  He is SO relaxed during the day.
 On the right is one of our Australian friends.  She's twelve and lovely.  Plum Cake was quite taken with her and jabbered her ear off. 
 Plum was invited to a horse birthday party!  Fun! 
 Last Saturday morning we headed to the park.  Forgive the Coca-Cola slurps!  Bad Granny!


 These princesses (Miss Bug's funny face!) have just returned from a road trip to Yellowstone.  They had fun!  We missed them!  
 Our Australian friend snapped a granny photo. Aw!  

 Noah and his gorgeous mommy!
 This is what Timothy does at night.  He goes down to the basement where Jenny and Scott are sleeping and inspects their hamster.  Yikes!  He is trying so hard to make friends with George (Jenny's pretty kitty) but George isn't interested in a relationship.  He's mad.  Timothy isn't shy anymore.  Not. at. all. 

We brought all the Raggedy Anns upstairs the other night.  

 More naps.
 This morning Plum shared her blankie with Timothy.  He's the nicest kitty.  We love him.

We have a leaky pipe so we can't use our kitchen sink or dishwasher tonight.  I guess we'll have to have calzones from the neighborhood pizza restaurant.  
Please say a prayer for my mama's eyes.  She is getting a treatment today and we're praying for good eye health for a long time to come.

My brain is a little over-stimulated, chatty and a bit cluttered.  I'll be back to normal soon.
Meanwhile, it's lots of hygge around here and I'm very thankful.

I love to read of your adventures. Timothy is so cute! What a cuddler. Lots of fun things going on at your house. Congrats on the socks. I don't think I could attempt that. Have a great evening.

Ahh such a sweet little babe. Love those little feet. Glad the kitty is fitting in well. Praying right now for your mom's eyes. My dear old pop said he had to pray and ask the Lord to let him still be able to see the pages in his Bible so he could read...

Timothy seems as if he has found the perfect home; he is sooo relaxed, isn't he. Gorgeous photos of all your grands. How fun your home is, playing with Raggedys, snuggles with kitty cats, slurping coca cola, definitely oodles of hygge. Praying your mom's eyes will be okay.

Kim said...

......ooops....forgot to say....love your socks!! =)

Deb said...

You are an inspiration; I should start knitting again. :) So much sweetness in this post. Aren't grands fabulous. And Timothy...my heart goes pitter patter. =^..^=

Jayne M said...

Aren't grandbabies just so precious?! Hope you are getting in lots of cuddles. The socks look great. I am hoping to teach myself to crochet from Youtube - maybe I should just bite the bullet and get going!

Marcie said...

Love your little Noah! Happy days!

Farm Girl said...

Granny Marigold said...

Too bad about the water leak but nice that you could order in yummy calzones.
Timothy is one very looonnngg kitty when he's all stretched out. I wonder just how big he'll end up getting.
Love the picture of you holding Noah. He's a sweet baby.

Wood Fairy said...

What a beautiful new baby boy. Bet you love to hold him and rock him. There are beautiful children in your family. Sure wish I could knit socks. Wish I could knit, period! The socks and pretty and look so comfortable. And, Timothy! He is such a pretty kitten!

Happyone said...

What a bunch of wonderful pictures of your family, including Timothy. : )
I have tried to knit socks quite a few times and never can get the hang of it. I'm better off making blankets!!

Happy@Home said...

Always fun to see the happenings at your house. It looks like a lot of good times. Noah is absolutely precious.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

What a fun assortment of pictures making up the fabric of your life, I loved them all... Timothy sure is a sweet kitty, love those snugly pictures, and I had to laugh about the hamster episode, lol! Precious Noah,how sweet to enjoy another grandbaby! Your socks are wonderful, something I have not ever attempted, and they look very cozy! Hugs to you today :)

I am trying to be very intentional about our hygge this Autumn- oh, but don't you dislike the word "intentional"? I do so hope you do. A most unbloggy word. It is all over churches here just now. Must have been used in some super-church conference sometime recently. Anyway, I am doing my pathetic best! Many prayers for Mummy Pom, just now. Our mothers need prayers. Beautiful baby. I can't believe I've been reading your blog long enough to see all these grandchildren bloom and grow.

NanaDiana said...

What a sweet, sweet post. I have been away from blogging for a while so didn't know you were a new grammy! Congratulations on Noah- he is beautiful.

I don't feel so bad about giving my granddaughter whipped cream from Starbucks now. I see you have topped me with a Coke. lol

Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

Kit said...

I can't decide who I like the best, your new kitty or Noah!...LOL So gorgeous. I love the photos of the kitty sleeping. You look wonderful holding Noah. :) Happy Fall! Kit

Cat Lover said...

Your grandkids are very cute! You are blessed to spend so much time with them. Timothy is adorable! Love all the photos. Great socks!

Gumbo Lily said...

What a sweet little poppet that Noah is! All of your Littles are wonderful! Love the Granny pic!
Look at your knit! I'm proud of you and your socks. That kitty, Timothy looks like he enjoys your lap whilst knitting. So happy for you and your tender, furry friend.
Love!

GretchenJoanna said...

Congratulations on the socks! I would be so proud! That photo of Timothy stretched out among the strands and needles is hilarious.

I'm saving that photo of you and Noah. It is perfect. <3

Lisa Richards said...

Congratulations on beautiful little Noah!
I think Timothy has been reading your Hygge book!
I'm so proud of you for making a pair of socks! Keep up the good learning!
Blessings on all!

Fat Dormouse said...

Lovely happy photos, Pompom. Of course your Grands are lovely, but I'm sure you can guess that I love yopur Timothy pictures best!!

M.K. said...

I hope your leaky pipe is fixed quickly. Adam said he would dash right out there and fix it for you :) He's handy. Methinks you are a bit smitten with that kitten!!! He's so pretty. Baby is pretty too :) I just LOVE how your grands are all good friends and spend so much time together. As the grandparents that are the glue that tie them all together, I can't tell you what a priceless gift that will be to them.
