Has it been a month?

Has it been a month? I'm sorry... We've been busy getting outdoors before mother nature decides to dump snow on us. We may live in sunny California, but it's different up here in the mountains. Last year we had a good snow here at the end of October... so really, nothing would surprise me at this point.

Let me share what exactly we've been up to:

Learning to spin thread/yarn on my new spinning wheel. It's really trial and error. Lots of error. I understand the steps, but it's going to take a lot more practice to turn out some non-ugly yarn.

Lots of cooking with homegrown veggies.

Spying on the deer who are spying on the chickens who could care less.

Painting. Gobs and gobs of painting. So much painting that "paint" is Camster's new favorite sign.

Punkin pickin'.

And chicken kissin'... even though chickens don't have lips.

Well, I'll do my very best to keep up with my little blog here. I'm almost done with a certain someone's Halloween costume so I'll have that to share. Plus! The holidays are just around the corner. You know it will be a handmade holiday in this house! Don't give up on me yet...
