A certain someone dropped by last night for a surprise visit.
Probably the cutest pirate ever, no? Wherever he is a certain someone is not far away, looking like he's standing guard but more likely wondering what the hell that little wiggly thing is.
On another note, is anyone else having that feeling that they slept through October? I mean...wow! Things have been busy around here--events on the home front, weddings and other parties, a certain belligerent super storm--but I've never before felt like I've missed an entire month. At work yesterday I was signing off on invoices when I realized "Hey! It's Halloween!" I've never been unaware of a holiday before.
And now I feel overwhelmed and like I'm running out of time. For what I know not. If I write everything down in a tangible form I have a very manageable to-do list. But now that I'm completely aware of the date and the weather has turned seasonal I feel like Christmas may as well be tomorrow. Perhaps some rhythmic dishcloth knitting is in order now. If my sister lived closer I'd go there and make her let me snuggle with the tot. Ain't no thang like a baby to soothe the nerves. As long as he's not crying and it's not four in the morning, that is. Because otherwise I'll just take my needles in hand and tell myself to chillax.
