It's windy and rainy out, so we opted to stay indoors. We've had several small branches come down from all the wind, so that's been fun to watch. I'm glad we did the majority of the raking yesterday. 

In the morning while the little one was playing Minecraft with friends I made some donut sticks with the twinkie pan we have. One of these days I will buy a donut pan, but for now, we get twinkie-shaped donuts.

I played some Pillars of Eternity on and off throughout the day. I have it on PC, but I loathe clicking to move. It's hell on my wrist. So I started over on the Xbox, thanks to GamePass.
I also started work on the Minecraft Creeper hat to go with the TNT scarf. I don't crochet or knit nearly enough to remember what all the acronyms are, or different stitches, so I have to keep re-watching youtube videos and reading websites. I'm happy all of these tools exist, otherwise I'd be harassing my mother non-stop because I can't retain basic crochet info.

Today is the last day of his theater class. He's enjoyed it, but this has been a mix of 1st and kindergarten kids and it was obvious that this session was just a smidge old for him - he struggled to stay engaged like he had the previous classes. We shall see how it goes in the winter when they offer another session.
Today was the first day of playing PC-only game Townscaper. It's basically a point-and-click city builder with nothing complicated like power lines and traffic congestion as found in Sim City.
In the afternoon while we were out raking I noticed that some bulbs I planted for next year have sprouted, thanks to the unseasonably warm weather the last week. Here's hoping that doesn't cause any issues with them coming up next year.

I finished up a Minecraft TNT scarf I've been crocheting for the 5 year old today. He's been enjoying running around with it on for awhile now. I found the pattern on Ravelry.

Batman joined me for our lunchtime walk today.
It's colder out than earlier this week, but the sunshine really helps to make things bright and cheerful.

I finished the junimo plushie today and the 5 year old was over the moon. For those who don't know, junimos are forest spirits from Stardew Valley. I used this pattern here.

It's the last warm day for awhile, so I took the day off so we could run around and have fun together.
We ran around outside, enjoying the warmth even though it started to sprinkle a bit part way through the afternoon.
Late in the afternoon I started crafting a junimo plush for him, which is a little forest spirit from the game Stardew Valley. He stayed up late waiting for me to finish it. I finally convinced him to take it to bed and I'd add the legs in the morning. He was happy and passed right out.

It's sunny and 72 degrees farenheit today. We took a few walks today and soaked up some sunshine.

In the morning we headed out early. I raked the backyard while the 5 year old set up Stardew Valley crops with his toys. He had a ton of fun.
We played a little of Stardew Valley together in the afternoon, before syncing up with Uncle Jeff in Minecraft. Stardew is a little over the 5 year olds head (questing is still a tricky concept) but he loves wandering around on his own horse and just exploring.
