Slacker me got the 3 giveaway prezzies in the mail... So watch for the Postman Kiki, Bird, and monkeycstars !!
When the girls 'help' me, it seems to take longer... Wonder why ? Hmmm ?
But I had such fun getting the trinkets ready... I do enjoy 'fiddley' craft it out-of-thin-air jobs like those.
And Moving Briskly into October---
Looks like I am starting to get that "Lets cram as much Orange, Leafy, Glitterish" Autumn stuf feeling...
Sigh... I am simply wild about this time of the year. All fleece tunics, crocheted Afghans, hot cups of Pear tea, and getting the flannel sheets on the bed.
My friend Gobnart found a small Sweet Afghan for me at Goodwilll the other day.
Alice has claimed it for herself and prefers to snuggle under the fold- she looks like she has lumped herself at the bottom of a sleeping bag...
Odd kittheh that she is !!
All the seasonal fruit and veggies I crave are beginning to truly find their way to market. Bosc pears, Krimsom-Kist pears, and new crop apples.
Thinking of maybe a cheese-pear Rustic tart ? With Turbinado sugar ?
And then the Squash... Oh My !!
Acorn, Hubbard, Turban, Butternut, Blue Hokkaido,
and my Favourite at the moment... Spaghetti squash.
Hacked this one in half the other night. Into the microwave for 10-12 minutes. Scrape all that stringy goodness into a bowl. Add a knob of butter, garlic salt, fresh ground pepper, several good shakes of Parmesan (yes, the keep-in-the-fridge stuff) and mix fluffily with a fork... Then top with a chopped tomato...
Heaven I say...
For desert I simply sliced a White Nectarine in half. If you haven't tried one...
Please do. They have the most light sweet nectarine/peach flavour. But it is their sweet scent that can make me inhale so deeply... They smell of late Summer evenings, an amiable breeze carrying the essence of unknown flowers, and you just know there will be a succulent pop of flavour when you bite into it.
Tasty I Say- Tasty !!
Did I take time to photo-op my supper ?
Does anyone else ever kinda forget that you have a Digi camera ?
Sigh... I do...
Well, Must get a move on here. A load of Laundry with my name on it.
Several pillow covers to cut out and hand sew to fit foam mattress square beddys for the Girls...
All that jolly Lady of the Mansion type occupations that if I had staff, they could handle it.
Just call me Staff from now on !!
