Monday Stuff on the Way to Other Stuff: Fall-ing Twice

Our Colorado autumn is almost finished. It was too dry to be extra colorful, but lovely, nonetheless. It always is. 
    The Great Hunters got home late Wednesday night, grubby and tired...they saw many deer, but not a single elk. The Powers That Be in Colorado decided not to issue deer licenses for this area, of course. No doubt the local elk were laughing their heads off. 

We had a great time being Crazy at Holly's Quilt Cabin Saturday -- my students were VERY inventive with their fabrics and embellishments. I gave out a lot of spider and spiderweb embellishments and fabrics -- these represented good luck and good fortune to Far East --and to Victorian era quilters. Thanks for being so much fun to work with, ladies! 

    I head east soon to another celebration of autumn, this time with the Mama in Michigan. She still has health issues, but I'm hoping that some walking, good food and time together will help. Michigan's fall least, the area near Grand Rapids... is really starting to blaze out. I should see some good stuff. Meanwhile:

Taming your time online. (From J.D. Roth)

What happens when you co-sign on a loan? People never NOT pay...or do they? (From Making Sense of Cents)

Drinking chocolate -- hot chocolate made thick. I still have fond memories of the heavy-duty stuff Starbucks used to offer around the holidays. Oh my.  (From Crazy for Crust)

What it's like, working the Canadian election.  (From Living Rich on the Cheap)

How to make naan -- that crispy, warm Indian/Tibetan bread. Yum.

A vining shed's best in autumn.   (From Funky Junk Interiors)
    Great other times in the year, too.

And in honor of the Great Hunters, this intriguing video of a man rescuing tangled 'deers:'

Enjoy your Fall week.
