We've had a lot going on around here. Since the school year started I've hardly had any time to knit (or eat or sleep), but I've still got some stuff to share.

The garden is not yielding as much as I had hoped. Problems with pests have decreased this years harvest, but we've still been able to get some cucumbers, green beans and corn.

I finished Scarlett. It's been felted and a button has been stitched on. It is now waiting to be wrapped in festive Christmas paper and gifted to someone very deserving.
Riley has started eating people food! He loves everything we've tried so far. Carrots, green beans, peaches, bananas, apples, and prunes. (The prunes were necessary to counteract a few to many bananas...) I'm making all of his food at home, so I spend a couple of hours every week steaming, blending and straining... it's totally worth it.
He enjoys eating, but sometimes it turns out to be just a bit much for the little guy.
We have a new addition to the family, too. This is Spot, a leopard gecko, and he is all Tyson's. Ty loves his new pet, and is great about taking care of him.

Well, that's all I have time for today. We've been busy, but having fun and enjoying life.

um, ew. But you know I mean the gecko - I love those boys. (too close to frogs) Spot! I miss Jesus.

you have been knitting! I am so jealous! I wish you'd call me once a month... can you steam and strain on the phone;)

love you!
