Happy Halloween! I cannot BELIEVE that it is almost November already. Where DID the time go?

Is everyone safe and drying out from the hurricane? Power on? Yarn stash dry? Trees near to dwelling places still standing?

The library was closed Monday and Tuesday from the storm. I am sure there were a bunch of people who showed up anyway and wondered why in the world we were closed. Humans are a weird species. (Seriously, why would you go outside? Did you not understand it was a hurricane?)

So my Orioles were knocked out in the Division round of the playoffs, which is sad. (@#$% stinkin' Yankees) But it was an awesome ride just to GET to the playoffs, so I can't bring myself to be disappointed this year. And three of my Birds won Gold Gloves, which is really cool!

Books currently reading: *All Roads Lead to Austen,* by Amy Elizabeth Smith and *The Alchemyst,* by Michael Scott.

Current Knitting Projects: Java Socks and Queen of the Wood shawl.

This, That, and Some Other

I cannot believe it is OCTOBER already. Really. Where did the time go? I could have sworn that SRP just ended, and school just started. Huh.

If it is October (and apparently it is), then why is it raining outside? Pouring, actually. I thought October was for blue skies.

I don't mind that it's October, though. Because October is my favorite month of the year. And because I'm still high over this past weekend. Since THIS is what I was doing:

The Orioles have a winning record and are going to the playoffs this year for the first time since I was in high school. Yeah. I'm still pretty high over it. No matter how far they GO in the playoffs, this has been one sweet ride, and I will enjoy every minute of it.

However, it would be nice if the BoSox could get their rears in gear and actually win their next two games so that the O's have a shot at winning the division rather than just the Wild Card. So, Marcie and Jen? If you could let them know that, that'd be great.
