10. It's supposed to snow tomorrow? I'm starting to fear the Mayan predictions of weather gone wild before the end of the world.
9. And along those lines, I have found myself not completely prepared for this weather. Son #2 asked me this morning if I knew where his winter coat was, and by golly, I had no idea.
8. In fact, we're supposed to have family pictures taken on Sunday (on location, natural light). I may have to rethink the tutu that I was planning for Daughter #1 to wear. It's now supposed to be about 40 degrees.
7. It's also supposed to be pretty chilly for Halloween. How do I supplement Daughter #1's witch tutu without me covering up her black and white striped tights?
6. Speaking of Halloween - it falls on a Monday this year. Are schools ready for candy hangover symptoms that are sure to rear their ugly little heads? I can't be held responsible for Krabby Patties that find themselves into my children's backpacks.
5. I will, after all, be focusing on digging out all of the Snickers and Kit Kats to put in the freezer for my own personal consumption.
4. Even though my doctor just this last week thought I could lose a few pounds. As a "preventative measure" she said. Humph.
3. I told her I would do my best. After Halloween. Or maybe after Thanksgiving.
...and the #1 Thing that will make you go Eek in the Halu-Halo household is
1. I have a Finished Object to show! Can I get a...WOOP-WOOP!
A charity quilt made using fabrics designed by Jay McCarroll himself....fabrics donated to members of the Modern Quilt Guilds for a quilt challenge. The NOVA Modern Quilt Guild will be sending our quilts to Inova Fairfax Hospital NICU.
I call it "Building Blocks," and I dream for it to go to a baby who will lay, roll, and grow on it, dragging it along, dirtying it, staining it, so his parent will have to patch or re-sew it, and rewash it again and again.
It is about 30 x 45, made improv style using a log cabin method.
I hope you all had a wonderful Friday. Stay warm Northeast!
