Our Thanksgiving was quiet, we like it like that. But I still miss the big family gathering that my parents host each year. Speaking of family, here’s another picture of my visit in October. Twenty one years ago, my sisters, Terry and Kay, started a part-time hand-dipped ice cream business that featured a trailer named LuLu. They traveled to county fairs and craft shows. One of their regular stops was to the Forkland Heritage Festival, near Gravel Switch, KY. They had quite a following of customers. Many came to the Festival mainly for their ice cream cones. This year was the last year for LuLu. Terry said it was time to hand up the ice cream scoop and try something different. So the family got T-shirts for the occasion (“May the Fork be with you”, get it….. Forkland?) and got one last picture. We had to have our “Wise Monkey” pose. Too much fun!
I’m trying to get more exercise this fall and winter. I’m fortunate to have a beautiful walking path along a wash in our neighborhood . It’s a 4 mile loop from my house. The cottonwood trees are a wonderful golden color this year. The white bushes are Desert Broom. We refer to it as Arizona Snow.
I finished a tapestry sampler this week. It’s a great way to try different techniques, colors and yarns. I like it. My sister, Kay, loved the bottle sweaters I knitted last month, and had a great idea to make them for hand soap/sanitizer bottles. Here you go…Plus it qualifies for the ugly Christmas sweater. I will leave you with the Duffy picture for the day.See ya,
