o hushed october morning mild
“o hushed october morning mild. begin the hours of this day slow, make the day seem to us less brief…” ~ “october” by robert louis stevenson
it is unusually chilly for october here. gloomy skies aren’t my favorite thing to wake up to, but i shouldn’t complain. it is a nice change from the heat. and we really could use some rain which is supposed to pay us a visit on wednesday.
this morning mild was the perfect time to try out one of those recipes i was telling you about. i am making pumpkin rice pudding. it is not something that cooks very quickly so we are looking forward to it as an afternoon snack.
i started a pair of his and hers scarves. the chunky green one is for my dad. and the other is for his sidekick. she kept oohing and ahhing over that teal blue wool yarn. i changed the subject every time she asked what it was. does she really think i don’t know it is one of her favorite colors? i can’t ever seem to work on anything in a secretive manner. my girl spilled the beans about the green one.
i had hoped to give them as Christmas presents. it sort of feels like the year i was in the 4th grade. it was the year i learned to crochet. i made a purple and fuchsia striped scarf. only my mom didn’t like it. so i gave it away to someone else. her favorite cousin. the one who shares my middle name.
i guess the 4th grade me didn’t know what her favorite colors were.
i am really enjoying the kindergarten learning corner. adding little touches of fall here and there when i can. i focused all of my creative energy this past weekend towards this spot because it is a work in progress and the months pass so quickly.
speaking of quickly, i can’t believe it has almost been a year since is started blogging. really, where does the time go?
