Yep, today went about like I thought it would. I slept in until 7:30 -- which may not sound much like sleeping in to some of you. Trust me, when you get up at 5:00 every day, 7:30 is definitely sleeping in. I had intentions of getting my heater fixed in my Jimmy, but as soon as I got up, I knew that wasn't going to happen. Fall allergies have my sinuses on the war path, and I've kept a headache all day. So, I didn't do anything.
My biggest accomplishment of the day was getting my carpet vacuumed and shampooed. Oh, and I watched six episodes of Criminal Minds.
The good news is spider lilies are blooming! It's finally Fall for real.
Oh, and here is a lantana
and a zinnia, for good measure.
You know, I used to take lots of photos, but I've kind of gotten away from it lately. I need to take the camera out on another photo safari, like I used to do.
In the meantime, I just sit around knitting and knitting...I've picked Kyle's blanket back up.
I've gotten several squares added to it, but we still have a long, long way to go.
Those aren't dirty spots in my carpet. It's just still a wee bit damp from where I shampooed it. Really.
I finally got started on my other cross stitch ornament.
You can't really tell what it is supposed to look like right now, because it's just a jumble of colors at this point. If you'll go to this post and scroll down to the bottom, you'll see what it is supposed to look like.
I had to set it aside, due to the aforementioned allergy headache. Knitting is just easier on the old eyes.
