Autumn, where for art thou...

I must be in the mood of Autumn already... at lunch today I started crocheting a Autumn colored cloth.  I see now, there is a lot of purple in it, but the oranges changing from light orange into the purple colors make me think of Autumn.

Right now though, I'm thinking of a yummy recipe I just read.   The recipe is called Triple Chocolate Crockpot Cake and you can find the recipe at http://wiseanticsoflife.blogspot.com/2009/11/triple-chocolate-crockpot-cake.html

I don't get into the cooking or baking mood until the cooler months.   I always joke, saying it's my body trying to store up winter fat.   :)

I worked, some, on a 'Ficklestick' project this evening.  I'm hiding most of it, since it is going to be surprise for someone.

I'm trying to slow down some on sewing and such, because I have to start on a big quilt next week.    I'm not succeeding very well.... if I sit too long, I get fidgety and before I know it, my hands get busy, crocheting, sewing, 'ficklestick'ing (doesn't that sound funny? 'ficklestick'ing)...    Anyway, I imagine you can  totally relate to what I'm saying about staying busy.

And then!... I saw the cutest pattern for a little handbag key fob, in my email.  The pattern however is a knitting pattern.  This chick doesn't knit.    I'm going to try to crochet one though.  :0)   If any of you knit, you can check it out at http://www.creativehomeartsclub.com/projects/articletype/articleview/articleid/844/mini-key-ring-purses#.TjinNfqVUZc.blogger

I hear a symphony in the background.  Mozart arias, the Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat major.  The music is beautiful.     If you would like to hear it, click the video below.

 Well, I guess that's it for tonight.   Hope you all are having a good week thus far.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.  Try to stay cool!

God bless and keep you,

My answer to yesterday's question:  If I were invisible.... hmm... that's a tough one... I think I would sit down in a very busy place and watch people.   People are very interesting.  You can get some excellent writing inspiration by watching, noticing their characteristics, their personalities, etc... So I guess my answer would I would be doing research.  :0)
