Here are 10 Things For November 1st:
*Nothing but issues with my computer. Not funny TRICKS here at Irisheyes. Sorry for no pictures today! A picture-less post is so lacking!
*I carved a crying Newborn Pumpkin. Used a seed for a tear; it was cute. Actually thought of it myself.
*Al's shift at the Children's ER all dressed up and I wanted to share her picture. Blogger isn't allowing it. ER staff are a rare and wonderful type.
*We go from Halloween to Day of the Dead instantly around here.
I cannot believe we were in Mexico last year with Zach at this time.
Their Day of the Dead Holiday is hard for American's to grasp.
It is a day of love and celebration. They believe the souls come back to visit their families on the night of November 1. It is a quiet peaceful beautiful holiday in Mexico.
I am so glad we experienced it with Zach in Mexico
(Nancy: this is my foreign Friday!!! just like you)
*Is it a co incidence that Zach was born on the Day of the Dead?
I don't think so. We will be celebrating his Birthday this weekend.
I'm off to pick up his Tiramisu cake now. There will be Tres Leches cake as well. I love my son so very much. I cannot begin to tell you how much he has taught me in his short life....
*Knitting! Oh knitting. I'm making Fireman some socks. I'll show you them as soon as the computer cooperates!
*I still have not found the vest pattern I want to knit. I may be visiting the yarn shops this weekend. I want a simple pattern.
*I enjoyed more than a few bite sized Charleston Chews on Halloween. It was my candy of choice this year.
*Congrats to all the Boston Red Sox fans. Last to first in a year is something Cub fans only dream of ....
*A long story short. First time at a casino this week with our Dear old Uncle Bill. I took twenty dollars and left with 20.09. I refused to lose yarn money!
