Signs of things to come...

Well, my calander tells me that today means FALL! However, the 90 degree weather, crazy humidity and my frizzy hair are telling me otherwise... We have noticed a few tiny signs of the season to come though- the above picture being one of them.

And this one... despite the warm weather, the falling pine needles are right on time! We have something like 15 pine trees in our back yard- I counted last year as I wanted to know how many trees were to blame for the endless raking.

And then there are other signs... signs of big changes to come! Welcome changes, but changes nonetheless. Well, I'm certainly bigger LOL! Baby Adelyn seems to be growing well, and all is good with dr appointments and such.

And these things... the washing, losing parts... I'm going to have to get used to that again!

In general though, I think we're looking forward to most of our changes! Except that whole sorting out my sewing room bit... eventually (and I mean like next summer) we'll want to move the baby into that bedroom, so things will have to be sorted, and probably some gotten rid of so that all the sewing things can be consolidated into our bedroom... what a hassle that's going to be!

On the sewing front, I'm seriously lacking! We've been super busy with Cub Scouts lately, and the volunteer positions I've taken on with that, that I haven't had the time or energy to do much creatively once the house gets cleaned and the family gets fed. I'm really hoping that I can just sit tomorrow in my sewing room... I don't know how much, if anything, will really be accomplished, but I feel the need to just be in there either way!

Shameless Fundraiser Link

Hey, I'm a mom- I'm allowed!!! And this sure as heck beats walking my pregnant @$$ around door to door in the heat!

-commence with shamelessness-

Anyway, as I've mentioned, Matt is a Cub Scout. And every fall, Cub Scouts do their big fundraiser for the year, which is Popcorn! (Sorry, no cookies- hit me up in 6 years or so!) No pressure, but if anyone wants some yummy, fattening, and of course overpriced popcorn (it IS a fundraiser after all!), you can use the link HERE to order year round. Using this link will ensure that fundraising monies come back to Ft Rucker's Pack 50 and the local council.

Labor Day Weekend...

And we have NO plans! Just sitting around and enjoying the time together. I'm sure we'll end up doing some things that require effort though, like mowing and getting the pool down... blah!

BBQ tomorrow at a friend's house, so I'll have to do a bit of cooking for that, but nothing too much, and hey- at least I'm not hosting!

Not a ton going on in the sewing room, but I did get this made for little Miss Adelyn last week:

I didn't like that fabric though, so it's already got another fabric cover on it! Found the pattern for free at http://sewityourself.googlepages.com/ . Gotta love making something from your stash (plus a 3$ bag of stuffing) that you would pay 25$ for in the store!
We officially kicked off Cub Scouts last week, and the first meeting went fairly smoothly for one leader (me!) and 12 seven year old boys... lord help me! Now just to tackle popcorn and get that done... AHHHH!
