Big Brother enjoys playing with swords. Soft of course, but swords (and light sabers) are a very big hit right now.

Autumn is here!

Oh lovely Autumn! Crisp air, hot cider, pumpkins. My favorite season. I had to write a haiku to show my joy for, and love of the season we have just entered. I have gotten two knitting projects under my belt and am about to launch into two more. Hooray! We have had a busy past… Continue reading Autumn is here!
