As these "gorgeous gobblers" remind us, it's the season. For giving Thanks, and then onto Christmas. But even before Thanksgiving, a little crafting is in order.

I've been told the first rule of blogging is not to apologize for absences. So I won't. I've noticed when I step away from the blog is when I'm emotionally in a bit of a tailspin or life is crazy busy or I'm tired of being on the computer. This absence has all three qualifiers. The downward emotional tailspin was caused by watching a few more pieces of my heart go to school each day. Sure I still have 2 here but 7 are not. I've been scrapbooking online 8 albums from our Disney trip as well as keeping up 8 day to day albums for 8 grandmunchkins. Hence the overload on computer time. The Disney albums are done and the 8 day to day albums are pretty much caught up and require a half hour a day or so to get pictures and comments in per event per album. I am, however, now doing our church bulletin weekly and some weeks are a bit more work than others. As for the crazy life. Well, the pictures below explain that. While I won't apologize for my absence, I'll apologize for the photo overload. There are knitting projects, birthdays, fall activities, and life that happened over the last 2 and a half months.
And below are the pieces of my heart I'm lending to the schools each day. I'm thankful their parents let me have them each day. While I wish they were with their parents and lent to me, in this world that's not possible so I will hold out my hands and be thankful for each moment they are here.
There were 2 special birthdays. Our sweet daughter and Great Grammie.

It's been a crazy busy summer and I am trying to reap the most out of the last days. We celebrate birthdays all summer and that means, usually, a lot of knitting or sewing. This year it was knitting. Monsters. 8 of them to be exact, or 10 if you count the 2 baby monsters. There is a sampling below but all but one are pictured on my ravelry page. Why monsters? We went to see Monster's University for 4 of the birthdays. So monsters. They were fun to knit. And I would do them again. Maybe for great grandchildren. I so appreciated my daughter's help. She did all the stockinette in the round. I did the shaping.
Two more days of summer for me to play with them. I will miss them dreadfully as they don backpacks and lunches. They asked for mac and cheese...again. My answer, yes!
