ROLL TIDE!

It's finally beginning to get a little chillified here, and it's great! We can finally go outside without breaking into instant sweat. But........."the" season isn't over and there are a couple of storms out there that may or may not see out shores. I think one of them is headed for the Yucatan. Not wishing anyone bad luck, but.....

It's about time for the Big Game. Nov. 5th is the day. It's Alabama  vs LSU. Both teams are undefeated and you know for whom I pull! We'll go up for the game, of course, and the weather will decide whether I'll go to the stadium or not. The game has been moved to prime time, so it will be COLD. That maybe I can handle. Rain along with that I can't. Tickets to that game are going for BIG bucks. But we are diehard Bama fans, so I'm  thinking we'll keep ours.

We also have a new member of the family in Tuscaloosa. He's an eighteen year old gelded Arabian named Robbie. Michael says he's super smart. Responds to hand signals and can be ridden easily without a saddle. I'm looking forward to meeting him. Planning to take some carrots, apples, and peppermints with me.

I've been knitting a lot lately. Just finished my first pair of socks. And I've finished a slouchy hat for the game. I've started a scarf in Christmas colors. There are about a million free knitty patterns on the internet and I've really enjoyed looking at all of them. I do need to take time out and work on some quilty Christmas presents. Think I'm going to make candlemats. They are quick and easy to do and look really great.

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy this beautiful weather!

Good luck to your team for the game.. I hope the weather behaves for you.

A lot of stitchers seem to be knitting or crocheting right now, looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

My dad will be avidly watching every second! His favorite time of year is football season.

Would love to see those hand knits you're working on!
