Holy crap, that's early!
That's what time we have to get up to get my daughter to school for morning volleyball practices. Actually, it's more like somewhere between 5:15-5:30am.
It's not every day but a few times a week is more than enough to make my desire to quit Coke go on the back burner...at least a little. Need my caffeine!!! Try and try again, right??
I got back from Fancy Fall Fest Saturday night. It was a great show, met some great people, including a few people I'd met at previous shows...love that! Shows are always fun and exhausting.
My boy came with me to help :) As he gets older I'm finding he's a great help to me at these shows, especially the ones that are further away where my hubby can't help (cause he's home with the little one).
I picked up this adorable necklace for Addie from SKA Designs. Addie loved it! She wore it to church the next day and said it was her amulet so she could talk to animals. Oh my the cuteness :)
We even had a rainbow at the end of the show :)
We still haven't carved our pumpkins so today will be the day! We've had cold & rainy weather but today it's someone nice & clear. And since my daughter doesn't have an afternoon practice we're going to get to it right after school so we can have all that mess out on the back porch and not in my kitchen!
The kids actually got 2 pumpkins each (we all did)...one to carve and a smaller one to paint. I thought that'd be a fun thing to do this year!
Raindrops on leaves = pretty neat
I've been working on getting all of these apples cooked & canned. The first batch was apple butter cooked in the crockpot overnight, then blended with my immersion blender & canned. The aroma from apple butter cooked in the crock pot all night = heavenly!
Tonight I'll do a batch of applesauce. I still have some apples in the freezer bagged for apple pie so I probably won't do much of that.
I also just picked up my Zaycon order. If you don't know about Zaycon you can head to their website. I've only ordered chicken because most other foods I buy organic. But if you're interested I'll be doing a blog post probably next week about how I "process" 40lbs of chicken for freezer meals.
Oh, and I have a bunch of tomatoes that are about to go bad if I don't make a batch of salsa and soon!!
I'm not sure why I always do this to myself. I do it with flowers & gardening, too. I have all of these lofty plans of what I want to do without realizing just how busy my week is!!
By the way, subscriptions for Noel Mignon kits are open for Jan-June and if you sign up by Friday you get free gift(s) with your sub! You can head here to check it out! I've been receiving her kits for years and they are, by far, the best value for the money that you'll find out there. Plus, they're just awesome :)
I'm working on some fun layouts with the Early Autumn kit that I'll be sharing tomorrow!
