First off…got out of the car at work this morning and looked up to the mountains.
Mt. Rose and Slide Mountain had a dusting of snow last night! 🙂
I went to bed last night (after a heart-wrenching lost for Zito…he really did pitch a good game last night!) feeling like it was closer to Halloween than it is. It was cold and breezy…loved it!
FOOTBALL starts tonight! Vikings and Saints! And…ah…GOOD LUCK to my BILLS this year!
In the midst of September baseball…Giants have been chasing San Diego and the Phillies (now it’s the Braves, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!). Hopefully we can knock the Padres out of first and then not worry about chasing the Braves/Phillies anymore.
The Great Reno Balloon Race starts tomorrow! Lots of pretty balloons will be filling our skies in the mornings.

I have lots of earrings I made too…should anyone need to buy some small Christmas gifts! Hint Hint Hint.
I had to order Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid from Amazon. Sundance Books, here in Reno, tried to order it for me, but said it’s out of print and can’t get it for me. 😦 Haven, one of my favorite tv shows on SyFy, is loosely based on it. I want to know how it’s tied into the book…should be here by tomorrow.
Working on a Crafters Challenge…colors this time around are olive green, rust, brown and one of color I can pick myself. I’m doing a quilt again…I have the top finished. Using flannel material that I had in my stash.
