The temperatures got to the high 80's and low 90's this week. They are dropping back to the 70's where they had been for a while. The apple tree leaves are dropping here and there. I probably won't get to the monthly list since getting to the HHP list is my priority this week. I will be working at a festival on Saturday. I was disappointed that I had to drop my availability from 5 days to just 1 day.

I finished my hat during crochet class yesterday, just have to sew the pom on top -- an easy task and it's done. I also need to put in some work on the scarf for my DD for Christmas. And, I've got a fall leaf in works (decor for coffee table, if it gets done it gets done -- had to have a project to work on during crochet class, since I can't work on her scarf when she's there).

I also have to bake some mini loaves of bread for a fundraiser on Weds. evening. Easy to do, but time consuming when I have so many other irons in the fire. But, it's for a worthy cause.
