A Shift and The Witches' Ball

Merkwurdig- strange, curious
German (pronounced mehrk-voor-digk)

The Autumnal holiday season is here, everybody.

The trees have mostly shifted to their Fall attire and the nights have gotten most pleasantly cold. I find it easier to imagine the dances the fauns perform for the moon in the countryside around me as I sit contemplating some magickal endeavour by candlelight. The Moon pops up over the horizon full and bursting with harvesty energy and the Farmer's Market sends out the tempting smells of roasted peppers and ripe apples in the god-awful early morning hours. Lol. It's time to pull out the ever fabulous and fashionable scarves you have knitted up in the previous months and go for a stroll over the carpets of oranges and reds outside your door. And pack along a hat with that too. Pointed or no, Halloween is less than a month away! Gotta get ready.

With the seasonal shift comes the onslaught of colds typical of the cold months. Due to stress in need of a good boot out of my system, I've had a couple of near bouts with sickness usually accompanied by massive headaches and a desire to rip my guts out. Today being one of them. Anybody comes up with a miracle cure or an Elixir of Life, tell me, ay? Uuuuugh.

We had our first Knitting Group night of the month Monday with our usual faithfuls and a few oldies. Quite a few people ended up coming and there are more to come here soon. I managed to wrangle a few out of the Mystery Book Club with Valerie's help. Lol. Actually, she did most of the wrangling, I just showed up and used my manly charm to rope the ladies in. LOL. Yes, I'm full of myself, but only when I want to be. Anyway, here are some of the pictures from the night. It was one of our best.

Let's get the fashion show going! Bernadette finished her fluffy white scarf, her first, and put on a small one-chair fashion show for us. Hott!

Some of the girls did some hand spinning...

Some worked on projects for others...

A couple took it easy...

And some modeled their goods. Minds out of the gutter!! Now!

We also got visited by my sista! Well, my adopted sister, but who cares, really? Anna is in the midst of a crochet project. 'T will look tre fab when finished.

Up and coming so very soon is the Witches' Ball. A night of dancing, magick, celebration, and costumes galore! All the details for the ball can be found here. I plan on attending this year, my first, with the lovely Anna.

Sean! That ball sounds like such fun. You and Anna will have a blast. I think of the 2 of you hanging out and my heart swells with joy. Oh, BTW, your writing about fall, the colors and smells is so wonderful. It was as if I was there. Your writing is wonderful!
