Baby its Cold Outside

Oh man it is so Autumn like here today and I am loving it.
The winds are crazy and blustery and the clouds are rolling in.  They are calling for rain this afternoon.  My whole front porch display blew down and was a mess to clean this morning.  But yet I still love this weather.

We dropped the boy off at school and set out on a treasure hunting adventure.
Bundled up and and off we went.  It was a fast realization that we live in the worst antiquing city ever and we came home pretty much empty handed.

It was fun just being out with my hubby and enjoying the weather and walking around.

As for the rest of our week...I am in every night to watch the World Series, I think it is not good for my heart to watch this series.
But I do so anyway.  To me it is better than a thriller movie.


As I watch I do crochet and was inspired by the latest issue of Simply Crochet to work on this little acorn holder and I made some Buckeye covers too.  Woodland fun :)

The week was very warm and we set out to teach the boy how to ride his bike free of training wheels, yep Nailed it!  Within 10 minutes he was off and going on his own.

The cats found some time to sunbathe

I finished my Mary Kay Andrews book last night and I can say it was just so good reading her books again.  Loved every minute of it.  I do have to say that you should read her other books before to get a grasp on the characters.
But I highly recommend it for a fun read.

Otherwise same ol same ol around here.
Oh we did pop in the Bellagio Conservatory yesterday for some autumn fun.
The talking tree was a bit too creepy but otherwise very cozy.

Sounds like you are enjoying fall, Amy! I love that photo of your son on his bike...pure joy! I think your cold weather is pushing this way...they have even mentioned the "S word" for tomorrow...

Amy, you're the best at sharing the little things in life - moments that pass us by, yet we need to stop and appreciate. Glad to hear you had some alone time with hubby, even if you didn't find any good vintage 'junque'. And I love your new crochet projects!!
Dare I say....go Red Sox! Sorry, gotta be loyal to my peeps. In any case, may the best team win!

I love your crocheting. That is one of my goals for this year and I better get on it if I'm to mark it off. We are enjoying beautiful fall weather here too so there are lots of evenings with my knitting in my lap. I love to watch football and knit. One of my favorite things ever!

Yay to biking and I love those acorn holders. So adorable:) Also, its lovely to hear that you had a great day with your husband:) I love antiquing. As a child, my mom and I used to go around all the flea markets in London. She loved spotting good antiques and getting them on a great rate:) Happy Tuesday, darling. xoxo
