Catching My Breath
After all those excuses, a fun little photo:
This morning I traced out an S and Mod Podged it to a pumpkin. I'm allergic to pumpkin guts, so I love that there are other decorating ideas for the outsides that don't involve carving! That's one thing checked off my fall to do list.
Also off the list: a visit to a pumpkin farm, a walk in a forest preserve (Brad's been working weekends so we opted to go only to the next county not the state park I hoped for), and I've been getting some reading done--four books this fall, though none were "good." Right now I'm reading FatherMotherGod. I've torn out our impatiens and planted some tulip and hyacinth bulbs (a first), and I'm anxious for spring. I've adorned our berm with a pot of yellow and purple pansies. No cider cookies yet, but I have made an apple crisp that Brad and Mac enjoyed. So autumnal.
As for the fall martini, my birthday is at month's end, and I've asked my son for a martini shaker. In the meantime, I have to settle on one recipe AND pick up some martini glasses. I'm thinking dollar store stems will do. Cheapo me.
