Thank you for the emails and concern, I’m still around and things are fine. I’m just enjoying the quietness. I’ve been busy with volunteering and knitting and doing lots of cooking and baking. Life is good!
Truth be told….. I’ve even snuck in some time to rock the shoppers at Costco with my Karaoke Skills!
I love me some Karaoke. I don’t even care that I can’t carry it tune.
I look slightly crazed in that photo..yes?
I also have a new puppy in the house temporarily.
I’m fostering this little guy.
His name is Paulie, and he is shaking things up a bit over here. There is never a dull moment in the house with a puppy, mischievous is his middle name.
All is well here, I’m keeping busy and enjoying time with my family.
Christmas is just around the bend and I have lots of baking to do. Everyone is getting cookies this year. I’m not buying 1 present. Someone may be getting a lopsided scarf that was made with lots of love and laughter. I’ll be around posting randomly every once in awhile, to keep you updated on my shenanigans.
Peace and Love to you all.
Gosh…..I just have not been blogging much.
I don’t even know why…I DO have a lot to say, but…for some reason it just keeps getting put on the back burner.
So here is the lowdown on some of things I’ve been doing the last month or so.
I’ve also been just informed today, that I’ve inspired sweet potato scarfing due to my last post. I’m happy to do my part to keep America healthy!
I’ve mentioned before that I belong to a CSA and pick up my share every Tuesday. Lately my husband has been doing the Tuesday farm stop, as it is close to his work place.
Yesterday, he brought home this.
The largest sweet potato I’ve ever seen.
Now it may not look so large in this photo so I’ve added another for comparison purposes.
I’ve also taken the liberty of weighing this thing, and it weighs in at a whopping 51.1 ounces. that is over 3lbs.
What in the world do I do with a 3 lb. sweet potato?
Last night I made one of my husbands favorite foods for dinner. Chicken fried chicken. It was delicious.
After dinner, while I was finishing up the dishes, he came in from outside and handed me a single rose and thanked me for a wonderful dinner.
It was so sweet. I love that man!
My calendar is chock full for the month of October and on Thursday I’m going to one of my favorite places…….Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

A couple friends and I plan to spend the day exploring Amish Country and eating lots of delicious food and a whoopee pie or 2, of course.
Last time we were there, we were just riding down some back roads and we found this little country store, and they made the absolute best soft pretzel I’ve ever had in my life, now mind you… they dipped this pretzel in butter, so it was not exactly healthy, but it is my goal to find that little store on Thursday!
A pretzel drenched in butter, is a once a year must have for a Girl’s Amish Road Trip!
The dogs are all still adjusting to life without Max.
He was the Alpha dog and they all miss him.
Abby – she just makes herself right at home in my reading chair.
Hopper – he misses Max the most. He is a little depressed and we’ve been trying to give him lots of extra attention. Doesn’t he look so sad in this photo? My poor baby.
Sadie - she is not supposed to be on this couch.
This is her caught in the action face, her tail was going a hundred miles per hour. Notice how she has moved the pillow and was using it.
That’s all I have for today. I’ll let you know how my trip to Lancaster goes.
Thanks for stopping by.
