|Knitting, sunshine, autumn, and Beagles

I only have a couple of minutes to write this morning. Much of my morning has been spent doing research and calculating statistics for various projects ... not as mundane as it might sound. I did start knitting a pair of fingerless gloves this morning (Fetching from Knitty's summer patterns) with some of the Berroco Ultra Alpaca I have left over from my lavendar scarf project (pattern available at my blog site). I ordered six skeins of that yarn because I wanted to make myself a scarf, some mittens, fingerless gloves and a hat for my first winter here on the farm.
It is a beautiful, gorgeous autumn day here in upstate western New York. For some reason my daughter's Beagle (his name is Zero) keeps licking the underside of my slide-out keyboard shelf. (I don't know if all beagles are weird, or if he is just a weird beagle, but he does some very strange things ... often.)
Anyway (ignoring the licking now which I cannot dissuade him from doing) last evening my husband and I drove into the village to pick up some items at the hardware store and some books from the library. On the way home we had to drop the hardware store items off at our church for a work project this weekend and on a whim he detoured us over to a local harbor off of Lake Ontario. The sky was full of incredible clouds of various textures and heights. When we were on our way back to the farm from the church we witnessed the most beautiful sunset I have seen in years - or maybe ever. Dang, we did not have the camera with us because I would have loved to have shared that scene.
I have to get back to taking care of one of my writing clients now, so will end off.
Have a wonderful day my friends,
