November Things

A few things that stood out this November:

1. My son turned 2 this month, and since bananas are his favorite fruit (probably favorite food), we had a banana split party.

2. I released the pattern for The Ramona Cropped Ringer Tee. You can find the pattern in my shop here, or on Ravelry here.

3. My husband and I had a mini-vacation sans child, thanks to my in-laws watching our son for a couple nights. It was the first time we’ve had, just the two of us, like that since before he was born, and it was really lovely and needed, and we were both really thankful. We stayed close to home, basically acting like tourists in our own city. We ate at several restaurants we’d never tried before and also visited a local gourmet chocolate shop. Their salted caramel hot chocolate is probably my favorite I’ve ever had, such good flavor and just the right amount of richness for you to take time with each sip and really savor it. We also tried several of their handmade confections, and my favorite of those happened to be their salted caramel-filled dark chocolate candy. My husband also got a white hot chocolate that he said was really good, too.

October Things

A few things that stood out this October:

1. My toddler has been learning random letters and numbers (I’m assuming starting preschool this fall has helped spur this at least a little bit) so we’re really trying to run with it. He really loves the letter ‘O’ and will point it out and shout intensely, “OOOOO!” when he sees one.

2. I finished the updated draft of a star stitch sweater and it’s now ready to be edited and graded. Woo!

3. We took my son to a pumpkin patch/apple orchard for the first time. It was mostly fun and he enjoyed having the freedom to run around, but that made it a bit harrowing for my husband and me since the orchard we went to didn’t have the best parking set up and the apples trees were located on the side of a steep hill. Definitely more suitable for older kids. When we took him to the actual patch to pick a pumpkin, I don’t think he quite understood what to do, so we picked a green one for him since he’d been really interested in a green one they’d had over near the games area.
