This and that, here and there
We're savoring these remaining days of fall, the calm before the storm, so to speak. It's already been chilly enough to necessitate the wearing of winter wear. Which reminds me that the girls will more likely than not need new snow pants this year. Yesterday, as we were driving, Emily asked when the radio stations would begin to play Christmas music. I'm sure it will be before we know it. Speaking of the radio, I found a station (I'm talking basic car radio here, not satellite) that plays mostly 90s music. Do you know how happy that makes me? So I had that station on the other day with Emily and Anna in the car with me. A song from Live ended, followed by a song from Pearl Jam. Emily asked, "Is this a country music station?" No, sweet child. It's a real music station.
I have a list of sewing projects lined up, beginning with Christmas items. I had planned to start today but the day ended up mainly dedicated to laundry. We host Christmas dinner and I've wanted to whip up cloth napkins for at least two years now. Some of the girls are also asking for Christmas themed skirts and I have a new pattern in my head that I want to test out.
