Last week a couple of the neighbors were getting new trees put in. Last winter was unusually cold and there were lots of dead palm trees around the block. What started as a couple of trees to replace the dead ones, ended up as a whole landscaping package with rocks and edging and shrubs. It is done now just in time for it to get cold again.
The air has taken on a definite flavor of fall, motivating us all to pull out our jackets and long sleeved shirts. There was not a single child at the bus stop this morning in pants that fit. Everyone was wearing last years clothes, leaving lots of sock and ankle showing. I guess we'll do some wardrobe organization this weekend.
Last night I used a couple of hours of evening time after the kids were in bed to continue sorting through my scraps. I still have a stack of shirts from the Goodwill clearance center that I was using to cut tumbler blocks with my GO cutter. I'm not ready to start sewing them together yet, but they will be ready next time I want to start a new scrap project. The basket is getting emptier, little bit by little bit.
