Wednesday Weather Report #23

Hello! hello! Fall is finally digging in her heels here in Western NY. The temperatures are all over the place, blue-gray skies mean rain is on the horizon and the trees are still deciding what to do with their leaves (a late heat wave means not much color yet but a good rain storm can knock them all to the ground).

67 - 66 - 65 - 73 - 72 - 66 - 61

One would assume that I should be able to keep up with such a simple project but I have a grand excuse today!!!

Do NOT adjust your screen - YES, that is Zorro on my lap!!

I was much more interested in sharing skritches and making sure he was comfortable last night than stitching. Eventually I did have to give him the boot since I just couldn't stay awake any longer. He was on my lap nearly 75 minutes. His personal record!!

Even better - he was on my lap another 30 minutes this morning. Janet and I were joking that Zorro has finally realized how good he has it at my house and that he's getting a little soft in his old age. I'm sure the cool weather has a little to do with it. Fingers crossed that I will have the same "delays" tonight.

In the past several weeks I needed a change of hexie pace so I pulled out a stack of pieced hexie rosettes and added the green 50/50 hexies to the ends. I nearly have the white added to these two. Once these are done this will probably go back in it's box so I can get back to what I'm "supposed" to be working on.

Monday night I had a dinner meeting at the Glen Iris in Letchworth State Park. Dinner and the program were good but getting to see the Middle Falls lite up was fascinating. For the locals, it was easy to tell how low the water levels are. In early summer, we were drowning with so much rain. That rain has nearly stopped and we are now considered "abnormally dry", just one step away from "moderate drought". We are supposed to get torrential rain starting this weekend (I'll believe it when I see it) so maybe it's nothing to worry about...

Happy Stitching!

Ah, you even have photo evidence of the anomaly!! We can hope it becomes the norm!
Those are striking hexies. What is the end pattern they create?
Love a falls lit up at night. So pretty!

Lap time is so special! Enjoy every precious minute of it! Fall is trying to come South--temps finally out of the 80-90's and we received some much needed rain.

We have had some strange weather thru the week. My furkids are loving the extra throw on the couch and extra snuggle time as things cool down.

The week's temperatures are changing! There's nothing better than a purring cat on your lap.

I can't even imagine Letchworth at night. It looks wonderful but it must be awful dark driving.
