20 degrees this morning!! Yep. Friday night the local tv stations ran a banner across the bottom of the screen warning of the hard frost, saying this would end the growing season for the year. Ya think?! Yeah....we in the north country take our freezing seriously.
So I guess it's time to cut down the perennials, empty the planters and put the yard ornaments and lights away. Good bye, Summer. Can't say I'm sorry to see you go.
Anywho, it's been the regular doings around here. Baking a lot more, spinning somewhat and knitting. Though it's been a chore to force myself to get at the last 2. Don't know why. Maybe other things on the brain.
I have got to get pictures posted. Got plans to put a lot of knitted goods up for sale on Etsy. Though I'm not thoroughly convinced. I did open a "shop" 4 years ago. Sold for one season. Now I've been reading comments on the forum; actually, I've been keeping tabs on this site for all these years. Don't like the fact that there are so many problems encountered by the sellers. And it takes so long for them to get resolved. But then a new crop of problems pop up. And it seems Administration moves at a snail's pace. I don't know. Lots of problems, lots of complaints. Something I seriously do not want to encounter.
So, I'm considering other options. But time is flying by. And I sell only for the Christmas season. We'll see.
I did order a sewer's dress mannequin last week. It should be here sometime this week. It sure will help display the sweaters, shawls and vest I want to sell. It'll definitely be better than trying to get good pictures laying these things out on the floor or the bed. Never works well.
Today is lasagna for supper with cheese cake for dessert. Both of these are very time consuming. I gotta get at it.
Hope you all are getting ready to hanker down. "Got yarn??"
