Time for some randomness with a little this and that.
What a beautiful week.
It started off with the first real cool front of the season.
Off I went to the Japanese Garden.
The azaleas are a bit confused -- they were blooming!
Then it was off to the zoo where they are busy decorating for Zoo Boo
and for Holiday Lights.
What do you do with a dead tree?
You carve it with a small chain saw into chimps climbing on a tree!
Located just in front of the entrance to the chimp habitat.
I have one more Christmas tree to crochet and my Christmas hot pads are all finished.
I started sending off the Halloween hot pads to their new homes.
I have yarn left over from the afghans I made several years ago.
I had to try out the Bavarian crochet pattern -- also called Catherine's Wheel.
It took some frogging before I was comfortable with the pattern.
It reminds me a little of the cathedral window quilting pattern.
I have a list of books to look for when I make my run to Barnes and Noble today.
Top of the list -- the new Bill Bryson -- One Summer in American: 1927.
The cool front didn't last very long.
The heat and humidity are back.
Next cool front is due in late next week.
Another trip to the Japanese Garden and Zoo is planned.
Wishing all of YOU well and much joy!
