Another chilly one out there today. I kept Jake home from school one more day to make sure he’s feeling better. I think he is, but the extra rest couldn’t hurt. Seems there is something going around the school. His Cub Scout meeting scheduled for tonight got postponed until next week since the den mother is sick, too and she told me that quite a few of the scouts are ill, so it’s probably best that the meeting was rescheduled.
In other news… it’s October! I was planning to have a little announcement tomorrow, but because Jake’s been sick this week I haven’t had the time to finish things up. So I’ll keep you wondering and waiting 😉 It’s nothing all that exciting, don’t worry!
October is a big crafty month here in the Hudson Valley. There is lots going on! This weekend there’s Crafts at Rhinebeck. I’m not sure if I’m going to go or not, but it’s there if I need something to do. Next weekend is the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show. And the weekend after that is the NY Sheep and Wool Festival! It’s commonly referred to simply as “Rhinebeck,” but since I live outside the town, I say “I’m going to Rhinebeck” for just about everything.
Other exciting things (for me) include getting to meet Liz and her lovely family (during the big Sheep & Wool weekend), the release of a new Morphine two-disk set containing previously unreleased material, and… I’ll be turning 34 (yikes). I’m hoping to fit apple and pumpkin picking in there somewhere, too. Maybe I’ll pick up some delicious cider donuts at Atkins the weekend I plan to be up in WMass. So yes, there is a lot going on this month! I feel like I have to cram in as much as I can before winter rears its ugly head!
