September is three-quarters over and this is my first and perhaps only post of the month. What can I say- school, the gun violence prevention work, canvassing, and the miscellany of life have been keeping me busy.
My husband is slowly making progress painting the house. This picture shows the mash-up of old and new paints and shingles as work is underway.
The garden is past its prime, especially as we are experiencing pretty much drought conditions. These are some nice little onions which have spent a couple of weeks in the cellar curing, and are now ready to use. They would have been bigger if I'd amended the soil for them.
Only two little sugar pumpkins grew, and along with the squash on the right they make a cute fall decoration. If you enlarge the two photos, you'll see that the middle pumpkin has a split personality depending on which side you are viewing. Some little critter made trails on it that look like a Boo! face and, alternately, a little happy face.
The kitten photo is deceptive:
Though Gus is bigger than Billie, the perspective and their poses make him look twice as big.
This is not an optical illusion:
Tuffy is as huge as he appears!
I'm now knitting the back from the sleeves/shoulders down. I made a couple of stupid mistakes that needed repair- I forgot to do the 15 stitch broken rib pattern on one sleeve edge. Then, when I joined the two fronts at the back neckline to start working down the back, I twisted the join, natch. But it's straight sailing now.
