I'm sitting here in my ugly grey NON-hand knitted sweater (I'm actually missing the 90-degree heat of summer), waiting on my overly-processed, totally bad-for-me, can of preservative-laden junk I will be eating for lunch today to cool off enough to eat without 2nd degree burns. I'm also watching The Chew on TV and wishing one of the chefs would come and personally cook me a lunch that won't kill me. I'm parked in the living room on the sofa and in front of the TV (is there any other way to eat lunch by yourself?), and I'm typing this on my iPad. While I do have a little Bluetooth keyboard to use with it, typing on this thing drives me nuts. However, since my doctor said last week that my desk was too high and was causing my headaches and since I don't have a booster seat handy to correct my typing posture, this will have to do.

I've just gotten up for the 10th time today to let in a smelly, leaf-laden dachshund. I've written before about the issue of leaves constantly entering my home attached to a long-haired, short-legged dog, so today I decided to share the joy with you via a few pictures of said leaves. I live in the American South and so there are always leaves on the oak trees, but leaves do have a life cycle and the result of this is a bunch of raking to be done every year like everyone else living with trees around. I think this stinks since we don't have the beautiful fall colors we had in
which at least left a wonderful memory as we cleaned the yard mess up there. Here, they pretty much just turn brown and
fall of the tree, replaced immediately by the new leaves. Would raking the yard eliminate the indoor leaf problem? Yes. Is this knowledge enough to make me go outside and rake? No. Maybe by spring. And maybe not. Ohio

Knitting? Glad you asked. Sweater #7 is mercifully D.O.N.E. (albeit not without some bumps but that story will wait until tomorrow). Tonight is D-Day for revealing these gifts to those for whom I knit them, so pictures will follow.
For now, I must be "leafing" you... (moans) :D
