Keeping busy

This geranium was so pretty this summer.  I think I will take it in the garage when it gets cold, give it water once in awhile and hope for the best!!

I saved my allowance and what did I spend it on?? Not clothes but another 2x8 raised gardening bed for next year!!!!!!!!!

Our great granddaughter, Nora, is six months old now!  She is growing up way too fast!  We think she is so precious!

Thought it time I got busy and put out a few fall things in the house!  Almost the end of October already!

Added this fall table runner again to the antique sewing cabinet.  I think I might be getting a wee bit lazy when it comes to decorating for the seasons!

Does anyone else do this?  I cut any extra cherry or sungold tomatoes in two and freeze them.  When I make our salads I get out a couple and add.  They thaw quickly and add a little color to the salad and a wee bit of nutrition.

I made two more crocheted fold over pot holders.  Two more sets done with knit dish cloths now.

And this is the second set!  So little time and so little energy!  Anyone else with that problem??

I made up a couple more of these mug rugs for presents.  If you don't know what a mug rug is, just look at the next picture!  This one is about 9x11 1/2 inches.

What a mug rug is!!

I made up this gluten free cheesy biscuit mix with herbs from Aldi's.  I am not too fond of it but when I am hungry I will eat them!!

Cali and Gracie are helping us babysit my friend's two furbabies for a few days!  Thanks for reading!  I will visit with you again some other time!  Almost time to feed our Coco furbaby!

Oct. 3rd

I did get the apple donuts made up for "Wonderful Gardener"!  In fact I made two batches!  As you can see they are not donuts but more like apple muffins rolled in cinnamon and sugar.  He is really enjoying them!

It is so nice to still be picking a few strawberries for our morning oatmeal!  Won't be long now and the winter weather will be here!  Ugh!

We keep finding these tiny greenish balls all over our house.  They seem to appear out of nowhere!  Are they spider eggs or does anyone know what they are???????

We got our lumpy applesauce all done so dehydrated a few apple slices out of some left over apples.

Made up three batches of freezer coleslaw.  Here are just three of the containers.  Not sure if I will do another batch or not.

Does anyone else do this?  These are bread bags rolled onto an empty cardboard paper towel holder.  I use them to double bag my bread I buy for the freezer and also to put my cooked hamburg in.  Then I put the cooked hamburg in the bread bag inside a ziploc bag and pop into the freezer.  That way it keeps my ziploc bag nice and clean to reuse and I then throw the used bread bag away after freezing the hamburg.  I call myself thrifty!  Some other people may call me something else!  LOL

I made up my all natural lotion bars yesterday.  I am waiting for them to finish hardening so that I can pop them out of the container.  They are all natural made out of shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax.  Just rub them on your skin.  Not much going on in my garden right now.  Hope you have a wonderful rest of week!!

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
