Yasmine and Layla spent the night and day with us this past Friday and Saturday. They have grown and changed since a few weeks ago. Their vocabulary is increasing as well. I love to hear how they are learning in school! Yasmine can read simple books and count to 110! They have learned a lot in such a short period of time! I do miss Winterlynn and Riley! Riley will be two in a few days! I hope to see her on her birthday!
I made a delicious apple cobbler today with apples left over from Ellijay. I didn't get them dehydrated as I had planned, but I think the cobbler is a good choice. I had the oven hot since I was seasoning a Lodge iron skillet I got at an estate sale yesterday. The skillet turned out pretty good. I also made blue cheese dressing! I love blue cheese and had some in the fridge so I looked up a recipe for the dressing and couldn't believe how easy it was to make! Silly me for not thinking of that before now!
The air has gotten a lot cooler here this week and the days are really short. I'll be glad when they vote not to change the time anymore! It messes my time outside up and makes me think it is later than it is. I may actually get more done, thinking that way! With the shorter days, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! That's one reason I was glad to find the iron skillet. I can make a larger pan of cornbread for the dressing! I can hardly wait to cook for Thanksgiving! I've got to think about the menu soon! Hope ya'll are well and enjoying the blog! Keep checking back for more! You never know when I might write a new post! Blessings from Bama!
|Still need to Mod Podge this and decorate it. Reckon it will be done before Thanksgiving?|
|Not finished; but you get the idea.|
|I've been reading about how to make my own iridescent colors. These turned out pretty! Of course I used the Hobby Lobby coupon.|
|See how pretty!|
|I may add more to this next year.|
|The vase on the left was purchased at the estate sale yesterday. The vase on the right was purchased at a thrift store on our camping trip. They are not collectibles. Randy thinks they were homemade using a pottery wheel. I think ceramics.|
|The rusty skillet. It shined up nicely.|
|It was very cool riding the golf cart Saturday! The sun got in Layla's eyes.|
|She rode down the driveway like this!|
|Happy 30th birthday ms. Amber!|
|Does this look like cardboard?|
|It is! A piece from a box.|
|Rafael and Tinkerbell!|
|The Angel Trumpets were so beautiful this day!|
