Falling leaves make me smile

Some trees in my neighborhood are really letting loose and, for the past two days, the leaves are falling like giant orange/yellow snowflakes! No photos, sorry, although I did pick up a couple of pretty leaves on my lunch time walk with the bad dogs. I haven't decided what to do with them yet, but I laid them out on the top of the washing machine to keep the dogs from eating them.

I also picked up pine cones from my neighbor's yard, although I'm pretty sure they are going to end up in the grapevine wreath that lives on our front door. The spiderweb and tiny leaf (that blew into the web) need company for Thanksgiving!

Cute stuff for a good cause

Just a short message before we return you to our regularly scheduled... lack of posting. Ha, like anyone noticed.

My brother's good friends have set up a blog where they are selling handmade goodies to help raise the money to pay for their darling pup's knee surgery. I hate to think of animals needing surgeries like this because you know they hurt and can't tell you and don't really understand why. :(

Anyway, check out the knit goods and the super awesome coasters (8-bit Toad, anyone?)!
