Fall is here

It's hard to believe that fall is here.  Seemed like we only had a short summer.  Oh well.  I just came back earlier this week from a much needed trip to Maine to visit family.  My nieces and nephew had a fun birthday party.

We hiked a small mountain, Bradbury Park on Saturday and later enjoyed chinese takeout.  It had a steep incline and I wasn't used to hiking.  I haven't been in years.  But anyhoot, it was a very short hike up.  Like I said, a small mountain.  Our walk back was easier as it was basically a walking trail.

I haven't been writing on this blog as much now that I have my job, but I will try to write at it once in a while.

My kids have started school and my oldest has moved into the dorms out in Washington state.  He's been out there for a little over a week and has already found his way around and has a big new friend group in the dorms.  He's loving it and doesn't miss Vermont.  Sad.  I miss him.  He misses us too of course but is having too much fun being on his own.

I may have to make a trip out there sometime when I can save up some money for a plane trip.  Not sure when but I think I ought to do it sometime.

I've been knitting more.  I finished one skirt and am starting another one.  The one I am doing now will take longer to do as it's on tiny needles and the yarn is sport weight.  It's a pink and camel striped one.

I had fun following my kids and my ex back from Maine.  Of course we took different exits at the end and I had to keep going to mine.

I've got a sore back now as one of my daughters jumped on my back yesterday.  It surprised me.

I'm liking my new job and have been there for well over a month.  We had a fellow worker decide to quit on us and he didn't give any notice.  But I'm hoping I get some of his hours next week.  That would be cool.

It's nice here today and am not looking forward to winter. Not fun to look forward to.
