I'm not feeling very creative with my titles.
Ken took these pictures a few minutes ago.
It's a cloudy and foggy day, but the pictures turned out well.
We noticed the deer and turkeys were in our orchard.
I left the orchard gate open last night since our garden is dead now and there are apples that have fallen from the trees all over the ground. I had been going back there and picking tons of them off the trees and ground and putting them in crates in the basement. I have enough apples to make 1,000 apple pies and still feed all the deer. We were doling them out each day about 30-40 at a time and they'd come by and eat them in the alley. Sometimes we'd look out the window and they'd be standing at the back gate staring at the house waiting for us to come feed them. Now they can just help themselves.
I've been looking for this pillow pattern for a very long time. It's in a 2015 issue of a UK magazine, Woman's Weekly Magazine "Best of Vintage Patterns." I can't see how to order back issues off of their website. I finally found an email for them so I emailed them this morning to see if they could help me. It shouldn't be this hard. They should have an "order back issues" button on their homepage, but nooooooooooooooooooo! That would make too much sense and be too easy. I'm highly annoyed about it. Can you tell? I even googled it and looked on ebay and everything.
Isn't this a cool map with the quilt-like print?
I thought so too.
I'm making this Ground Beef Noodle Stir Fry for dinner. I'll let you know if it's good. How can it not be?
I made these Muddy Buddy Krispie Treats yesterday. They're very good. I didn't do the powdered sugar part because I didn't want to make a mess. They're still good without it.
Beware of caffeine-induced rambling...I'm almost finished with my second LARGE cup of iced coffee.
I'm ready to crochet something. I just can't figure out what. I hate that. What I want to make right this minute is THIS pattern, but I don't have the thread I want to make it with. I'm afraid if I order it online, by the time I get it, I won't want to make it anymore because most likely Halloween would be over by the time I finished. The thread is Alize Miss Batik, which I've been seeing a lot of people using lately (and that's a stupid name for yarn), but I can only get it online which means I'd have to pay shipping for one skein of yarn, which is dumb. The shipping is almost or more than the yarn. I think this particular doily with the skulls would be neat for the Halloween season and looks perfect in that yarn. See for yourself. (I got this picture off of Facebook, but I can't find it now to give credit. Just know somebody made it and posted it on Facebook and it wasn't me. Great job, whoever you are! I'm sorry I'm too lazy to sit and sift through posts and find it. Whatever.)
See what I mean? Totally cool!
It just wouldn't be the same in any other yarn.
Sigh. Maybe I'll just go ahead and order some.
OMG, I think I've rambled enough about this subject.
Speaking of caffeine, do you know what I saw at the grocery store yesterday? Breakfast bars with caffeine added to them! Brilliant! Just what I need! I did not buy them because Ken was rushing me and I didn't have time to stand there with my mouth open looking at it long enough to pick a flavor. Hmpf!
So between paragraphs just now, I went to that link I provided above to the pattern of the doily and printed it, and the font is SO FREAKIN' SMALL. WTF? Really people? I'll need a magnifying glass to read the damn thing. Maybe I can copy and paste it into another document and change the font size. Is this really worth it? Is it? IS IT?
Speaking of Halloween, I'm decorating for it.
S p o o k y !!!!
And speaking of spooky, look at my ghostly-white legs!!
I went to the mailbox dressed all fancy in my leggings and animal print house shoes (screw the neighbors!) and I wanted to take a picture of all the leaves I was standing in, but mostly all you notice is my white legs and my tramp stamp, which I still love, by the way, and I don't regret it one iota...the tattoo, not my white legs. Now there's a run-on sentence for ya!
Am I done here?
I think I should be.
