October- just around the corner

A glimpse of the Halloween to come-

Sweet Kitten

So the first of October is banging down the door, with chilly mornings and beautiful colors. We are going tomorrow to get our Halloween Pumpkins to decorate. I am so excited. I don't know what I am going to do yet though. I have some ideas, but nothing is final. I have been working on Christmas gifts as well. I finished a hat and scarf for Annabel a couple weeks ago and I just finished a hat for Harry this week.

My costume came today and I am so exicted about it. I put it on and got Jordan to take some pics to show Angie what it looks like and I did these photos from it. It reminds me of being a little girl and how I loved dresses then.

I will post more often hopefully- I know I've been slack. I've had a lot going on.

It's Official!!!

I fell asleep watching television and Jordan took advantage of it. He tied a note around Oreo's neck with ribbon and had her get on the couch and wake me up. The note had "Open" on the the outside and "Will you marry me?" on the inside.

Of course you all know I said yes!

Swan Boats
Boston Public Gardens

...So wow, I let an entire month go by without a single blog entry. I have been extremely busy and slack at this. It's fall here again and therefore time for me to get busy with this once again. I seem to keep it up better during/around holidays and events. Recent News 1. My mom came for a visit Aug. 24-Sept 1 2. Spent day in Boston 3. Weather temps are below 70 4. Planning Thanksgiving already 5. Jordan and I just celebrated our 4th Anniversary
6. Knitting like a mad woman

So I have tons of photos to post here of when my mom was here. We did a lot that weekend when she got here. We went to Newburyport, Amesbury and Plum Island on that Friday. We picked apples at Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury, then went shopping and I showed her where I work in Newburyport. After that I drove down to Plum Island to show her our "beach". It was a long day. That night we ate out at a restaurant and then we made homemade apple pies. My mom had never done that and she really enjoyed it.
Saturday we went into Boston, we took the "T" and went to Boston Public Gardens, and Cheers. It was a perfect day to be in the city, because it wasn't cold or hot. We were able to really enjoy ourselves walking around and we considered riding the SwanBoats but the line was uber long and I didn't feel that it was really worth the wait. After we had done all that we went back to North Station to get our car and we drove down to the USSConstitution. This I would have to say was the highlight of the day. It is something I really enjoyed because I'm so fascinated with the fact that this ship endured everything it did when it was the "top dog" of our navy.

Sunday we didn't do much, just relaxed and did our own things. I think Jordan had some work to do from home.
Monday we had to get the "v-pipe" of the muffler replaced, which is always exciting. Gotta love injuring the car on day trips into the city. (I didn't mention this above, but on Saturday I hit a raised manhole which put a hole in the pipe) So now our entire exhaust system has been replaced, and we shouldn't have problems for several years. Fun times- Then it was Tuesday and back to work and "normal" life. My mom just hung out here for the remainder of her visit really. This morning I was up at 6am to drive her back to Manchester to get her 9am flight to Detroit- from there she went to RDU. It was a long day for her as well. So now I am back home and getting things back in some sort of order, if you could call it that. I am knitting, and Jordan is programming. Tons of exciting stuff- Oreo couldn't handle all of it anymore so she has retired to her new favorite spot under our bed. So here are the photos!
