Whoa! Winter Storm Watch this weekend!

They are predicting 6-10 inches of snow!  Yikes!  I have to work Saturday night, too, so yeah, I’ll have to drive in it. It’s a good thing  that we dropped Sarah off in Madison a week ago.  It snowed that day, too, but not like what’s coming! Keep you posted! This is a picture from 2013! That storm dropped about 15 inches!  LOL!

Fall Fun Day

On October 8th, my kids and I had our Fall Fun Day, where we visit Whispering Orchards for apples and cider, Parnell Tower for views of the countryside, and Spieker’s to buy pumpkins. We had a beautiful fall day and all of these venues were crowded with other people also having a fun fall day! Wisconsin is beautiful in the fall!  I love living near the Kettle Moraine State Forest, which is where Parnell Tower is located.

Finished a knitting project

I actually finished a dishcloth!  I wanted to get a dishcloth knit, during the Games in Rio, to go along with the Ravellenic Games on Ravelry. I picked a small dishcloth, which probably helped.

Here’s my medal for the Household Heptathlon.

Here’s the picture of my Summer Breeze Dishcloth.

My days are crazy with work, trying to have a life, making a lunch for my supper meal, going out for lunch before work, etc. I’m just amazed that I actually got this done.

Speaking of work lunches, something I had recently was so good. I spread roasted red pepper hummus on a wholewheat tortilla, added turkey, cheese, and some veggies (red pepper strips and cucumbers). I took that 2 days in a row! I work less days in September. I might have time to actually cook and be able to bring leftovers to work!

Who is looking forward to fall? ME-me-me-me! I’m so sick of sweating at work! I’m so looking forward to days of less heat and humidity! Who is looking forward to apples from the apple orchard? ME-me-me-me!
Look at this beauty from 2010!
