Falling Leaves, and I’m a LumberJill~

Lumberjack Song

I’m a lumberjack, and I’m okay.
I sleep all night. I work all day.

Mounties : He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin’
And have buttered scones for tea.

Mounties: He cuts down trees. He eats his lunch.
He goes to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping
And has buttered scones for tea.

Chorus : I’m (He’s) a lumberjack, and I’m (he’s) okay.
I (
He) sleep(s) all night and I (he) work(s) all day.I cut down trees. I skip and jump.
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women’s clothing
And hang around in bars.


Mounties
: He cuts down trees. He skips and jumps.
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women’s clothing
And hangs around in bars?!

Chorus : I’m (He’s) a lumberjack, and I’m (he’s) okay.
I (
He) sleep(s) all night and I (he) work(s) all day.I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
Suspendies, and a bra.
I wish I’d been a girlie,
Just like my dear Mama (
or Papa in later versions)

Mounties : He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,
Suspendies, and a bra?!

Chorus : I’m (He’s) a lumberjack, and I’m (he’s) okay.
I (
He) sleep(s) all night and I (he) work(s) all day.Yes, I’m (He’s) a lumberjack, and I’m (he’s) ok-a-y.
I (
He) sleep(s) all night and I (he) work(s) all day.

Another month is almost over, the kids are back in school. Halloween and our anniversary are fast approaching.

We spent a quiet weekend indoors, watching the leaves turn colors, some of them falling to the driveway. A cold front heading our way brought temperatures down and windows were closed. The Twins are getting bigger, their spots are gone and they are getting darker.

Saturday was spent processing orders,  making hair sticks and shawl pins, and catching up with contacts. Paperwork can wait another day, I just wanted to relax and not have to think too hard.

Sunday morning, Igor and I went for a quick walk,  then came back and relaxed for a while.  I brought all the cacti in, as the wind picked up. Later that afternoon, I worked on my LumberJill Socks  while an apple pie baked, filling the house with yummy smells.

Lumberjill Socks, step-by-step
Lumberjill Socks, step-by-step

These socks are taking me longer, but not for any reason other than they are something to do between other projects. OH, in case you’re wondering why I call them “Lumberjill” socks-the yarn is Knitpicks Essential Tweed, colorway Lumberjack Tweed. and since they’re women’s socks, I named them Lumberjill.

They look more like GI Jane socks, the color is very Army. I wonder what color socks is regulation for the Canadian Royal Mounted Police…

While the oven was heated, I decided to throw some biscotti in for the Cookie Jar stash, a quick recipe of Kahlua and poppyseeds, my favorite flavor. Igor was a happy boy, he loves watching and waiting for those nibblin’s that come during the cutting stage.

M. made BBQ  “country style” ribs, sauerkraut and roasted potatoes for dinner-Mmmmmmm! The house smelled sooooo good, it drove us nuts and we could barely wait for dinner-we forgot to stick the crescent rolls in, so they will be tomorrow’s breakfast 🙂

It’s “House” night, 7pm. I love that show!

Barb, can’t wait for you to get back, but I know you’re having a day at the beach 🙂

Have a good evening!

Me~
