Now It IS November!

Hi Everyone! It's really fall now, isn't it?  I took these photos before the cold/snow, but the sky is still THAT blue!  Wow!
And sometimes it's pink!

I'm knitting a . . . PONCHO! ๐Ÿ˜‚ April (daughter in law) and I occasionally do "knit alongs" so she is making a poncho of sorts, too.  I used to think ponchos were weird, but that was before I grew older. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now a warm wearable blanket sounds VERY cozy!
On the colder days we had, our son in law was up in Conifer and he came upon these lovely elk!

I had my hair chopped off.  My ponytail was pulling my hair out.  It feels good to have short hair again.

My Mother's Day geranium got to move inside with us and she's still blooming! Yay!
My niece came over to my mom's house for Halloween.  My mom loved having trick or treaters!  She had quite a few!  Isn't she a cute unicorn?

I picked up two leaves for you while out walking.  I might actually make them into a bookmark.
Here's Jolly all tucked in his pocket.  He's saying, "Come ON, Pom Pom! Get moving! I want to fly away and begin my adventure!"
This little floppy boy doesn't like cold weather at all.  He must have a lap to nap on in order to cope with the chill. 

 Remember the old days of blogs?  I have been reading old posts from An Angel in the Garden.  She is a lovely pink themed person (I love pink, too!) and her posts are full of New Zealand beauty, thrift store finds, and other amazing and inspiring ideas.  There are still lovely blogs (yay and THANK  YOU!) but it isn't like it used to be.  When it was kind of a new thing, it was such an experience of discovery.

The sun is shining and I've been able to ride my bike around the neighborhood!  I love it so much.  I haven't fallen off yet, so that's very good.

We're having meatballs for dinner.  I've been using my cast iron pan a lot more.  I browned the meatballs in the oven, made a quick gravy, and added partially cooked potatoes and carrots, added that to the meatballs and I'm slow cooking it all up for an easy meal in an hour or so.  I love potatoes and I love gravy.  I used rice flour because I am still avoiding gluten.  I know it sounds faddy and it is, but I feel so much better when I do not eat wheat.  I don't eat dairy either.  If I do, my stomach complains.  It's not that hard to avoid cheese, even though cheese is so good and seems to appear in most yummy dishes.

I really hope you are doing well.  I hope you are growing and having "ah ha" moments.  I hope you are tending to your faith, reading your Bible, and having sweet times of prayer.  I really like you.  

Time to jump on Blue Moon (yes, I named this bike, too๐Ÿ˜Ž) See you soon, friend!
