This and That



I love this time of year.
There is a promise that the days will cool and wonderful walks are in the future.
Last year, because of the drought, the acorns were few and far between.
This year the squirrels can't collect them fast enough before the acorns cover the ground.
I love Halloween and love to share Halloween fun!


This is a reproduction of a vintage Halloween postcard.
Isn't he quite clever!
Yes, we *auto* have a Happy Halloween.

It's that time again.
Classes have started at Rice University.
The Boys are Back!
Time for Fall Ball.
I walked over to watch the action.
So many new freshmen.


Fall Ball


There's just nothing like the sound of the bat hitting the ball!

Walking home from Rice I spotted some Halloween decorations.
This Halloween man made me smile.
His head turns from side to side.

Happy Halloween Pumpkin Man


I don't think this Ghost is going to scare anyone!
What a great welcome he'll be to Trick or Treaters.


Happy Halloween Ghost

Finally, I finished the last black cat square.
I went to Michaels and found a gray yarn that was very close to the original.
This is what the afghan would have looked like.
It is huge.
I'm glad I decided to make four lapghans instead.

I did do some tweaking of the pattern when I decided lapghans were the way to go.

I can't put anything on the floor without having a cat or two check things out.
Now I have the kitty seal of approval for the lapghans.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

I agree 100%. This time of year is my favorite. I love the crispness of the mornings and the gorgeous color of the leaves.

Hi Snap,
Well, my favourite season is Spring but then I detest the cold which accompanies our long winters here in Atlantic Canada.
Your afghan is very cute. Thank you for your visit and very sweet comment about my blog birthday. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

I enjoyed running after squirrels when I was in the UK. I wish we have squirrels here in the Philippines, too!

Happy weekend.

love the idea of the lapghans!
Personally, I preferred when the Hallowe'en decorations went up at the last minute - I found it much more scary to be out that night and see the houses transformed.

Love your kitty approved lapaphgans. I know I wrote that incorrectly, but... Also love your postcard. Have a great week.
