October Fridays, Take Two

Mrs. Knitting has had a thankful week.  Here are my Friday Fave Fives with Susanne.

1.  Is autumn really and truly here?  Even here in Southern California, it might be.  Leaves are turning brown and falling down.  And the temperatures have moderated.  I do love autumn, no matter where.

Here we don't have amazing orange and red and yellow leaves; our colors are in the flowers which are still blooming.

2.  I spent Saturday and Sunday at the Reyes Adobe Days.  Every year our guild is invited to demo and the staff there are always excellent, friendly and helpful--I enjoy this event immensely and look forward to it.  It's fun to share this ancient and yet modern process every thing we all wear goes through to make fibers stronger and more durable.

3.  Last weekend, when I was demonstrating spinning, I was also able to exhibit and sell my hats.  The good news is that I sold all but five of the hats.  Even though the temperatures were soaring, people were still purchasing hats.  Yay!  Generate Hope will be receiving a good sized check soon.

4. This week is our PAL's birthday!  She is two!  I will be going to her house over the weekend to help her celebrate!

5.  At our house,  The Professor is pretty excited.  "GO, DODGERS!" (followed closely by "I miss Vin.")

Due to that expedition to Arizona, I will have sporadic internet time.  Enjoy your weekend!

Have a safe trip, Mrs. Knitting Willow, and a wonderful visit. My flowers are almost all spent, so I especially appreciated seeing your pretty ones. xx

Hope your weekend is lovely. Nothing like a dear two year old grand baby to love (unless it's the five year old, 11 month old, etc.)! Reyes must be a great venue for hat sales...sending those checks has to bring a real feeling of satisfaction. Mary

And your darling PAL is already equipped (with your knitted bunnies) for a happy day.

It's cool that you are passing on the knowledge to all kinds of audiences at these demonstrations.

What a darling little grandgirlie!! A very Happy Birthday to her!! And I hope you have a lovely visit!

Your blooms are so lovely - it's unusual but we still have quite a few around too. It's been a really mild autumn.

Well done on the hat sales!

I've been hearing, "So sad for the Giants!" I don't watch baseball so don't have a fave team. I hope your hubby is able to continue celebrating the Dodgers.

Your PAL looks quite content sitting with her two little pals. All 3 are so cute.

I never used to be an autumn fan, but now I am. Throughout the city we have some BLAZING trees. Your flowering plants are bright and cheery.

I hope your week is also bright and cheery.
