halloween, Dazzle, books

I suppose I should get my Halloween blog posted before Thanksgiving arrives, don't you think.  Well anyway, we had pumpkin carving at Ryan's house again this year, along with a delicious brunch.  The weather was nice enough for us to carve in the backyard in the glorious sunshine. 
Lily went as a Indian princess, and little Katy was little Red Riding Hood. No pictures of the little ones, as Ryan did not send them to me.  But who are these people????? That is right, Tera and Brady sure know how to do it up right. Boo!
There comes a time in every dogs life that they need to put aside the urge to raise a family twice yearly.  And that is what we did.  Here is a picture of Dazzle with accessories.  She was spayed 10 days ago.  Actually she did not have to wear the Elizabethan collar, as she was a good little dog and did not excessively lick.  But I had purchased one anyway, just in case. 
She has recovered nicely, and we are back to our 1 3/4 mile walks, weather and wind permitting. Here is one of her walking outfits.  If it is particularly cold, a sweater goes underneath.  She just loves her walks, both mentally and physically.  It probably is good for me also.
I have decided to put a red border on the quilt I previewed last blog, but not finished with it yet.  I have been knitting up a storm however.  Here is a poncho and stocking cap that I just finished.  I also crocheted a scarf for Lily to wear to preschool.


Just finished reading "Reconstructing Amelia"  by Kimberly McCreight, a murder mystery about school bullying, and the death of a 15 year old girl  as the result.  I am sure glad that I am not back in HS. Once I started this book I could not put it down, it was that good.
Also read "Life After Life" by Kate Atkinson, a very good book, but hard to get into, but once you figure it out, it is great.  Can't wait until I get my next months books.

Well, that about covers my exciting life for awhile.  This upcoming week my parents will be flying up from Tucson to spend Thanksgiving with us.  So I am hosting and cooking on Thursday. 

I wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving! Must go, the goats are in the milk stand waiting for me!
