It's another Jackie Miscellaneous post.
1) Thrifted. Still more from summer.
Boots, a few yards of fabric, an enamal tea kettle, sequence, a pottery bowl, two Christmas socks and a brand new paper doll cut out type Old McDonald. $6.50.
This bag is so fun. Old wooden checkers, dominos, monopoly pieces.
-I am really enjoying the food consumption this fall. Dinner time=every item served is from our garden. I might have a purchased onion and some salt for flavor, but virtually everything else is from the garden. And the kids gobble it up.
-I have a fabulous cake on the counter. I just sort of made it up, inspired by 50% off candy at the grocery store. It's a snickers cake with chocolate frosting and peanut butter frosting in the middle. It's yummy. (Let me know if you want the recipe. I'd be happy to recreate it and measure what I did. Mmm.) I had an extra big piece. Because I got a 3mile run in today, I totally earned it, yes?

-I've been giving my sewing machine a work out on my own and teaching a sweet 3rd grader a few projects too. I just love young enthusiasm for creating.
-I've been reading up on raspberries. Hoping that we're one step closer to fruit in the spring/summer with the 67 plants I planted last spring. Someday there will be a big beautiful hedge and there will be so many berries, I'll be inviting friends left and right to help me pick/consume them. Someday...
He says he's always going to want to ride on mama's back. "Because my mama is special in my wide world and I love her sooo much." Who can refuse that?
