Just because I don't have any knitting I can show you. There was knitting, and there are finished projects but they are all hush hush. Either gifts or test knitting. So instead here is Yesterday's sunset as seen from the back of the house. We enjoy the sunsets and sunrises a lot.

Bearded dragon. He/she is so cute!
I also started to make beaded stars for Christmas gifts. Don't know if they are going to be for bracelets or necklaces. For now it is just playing around with the different patterns and color combinations.

Of course I had to multi-task and make some roasted pepper and tomato chutney. It is lovely to have a farm right at your doorstep with lots of veggies and ever since we moved I have been itching to can some of that.
Starting off with the chutney. And after a few hours six big jars and three small jars are filled with the good stuff (I sure hope it is good, it sure smelled really nice)
DS went to talk to the neighbor and on his way he almost stepped on this beauty, he came running back to get the camera, and succeeded in getting these pictures for me.
There are lots of gophers in the fields, so I bet there is plenty to eat for the snakes.
It is also Tarantula mating season, but so far no sightings yet.
For now I am going to enjoy my Saturday night with some pre-halloween knitting and a glass of wine.

We had a nice long weekend, and by now the three days are gone.
This was the first weekend in a long time we where not surrounded by unpacked moving boxes, we just enjoyed the house and it's surroundings, DS had a friend over and the boys enjoyed the farm. Not so much the cleaning of the chicken coop, especially after going to sleep at 2 am!We enjoyed the sitting outside on the porch, reading a book (DH),
Tomorrow it is back to work, short weeks for some reason always seem to look longer. Our next four day weekend is not until Thanksgiving, by then it is November and if we are lucky it is still nice enough to sit outside on the porch.
