Just Now I Am......





~ Wondering if the leaves on my cherry tree are ever going to fall (that isn't it above). Some time in October the leaves of my ornamental cherry tree  turn from green to orange. They stay like that for maybe two days and then they drop all at once. This year they will still be green as we enter November.

~ Thinking that my phone takes pictures (the three above) every bit as good as my DSLR.

~ Feeling even more than usually disinclined to do Halloween. Luckily I don't have to. Katie has organised her own fun with a friend and I have put a 'Sorry, no trick or treaters' poster on my front door (thank you West Mercia Police). I know, I'm a mean old bat.

~ Anticipating making this cake with the remains of Katie's jack o' lantern.

~ Waiting for more yarn to arrive. I ran out of yarn with fourteen rows to go. Wailing and gnashing of teeth.

~ Pondering the similarities between a knitting project and reading a good book. Not wanting it to end but desperate to see how it turns out.
