Hello, 

MAUDE

The night air last night was perfect, cool and so good for sleeping.  Fall is coming with some trees already changing colors.  Its my favorite time of year.  The smells and sights are a delight.  Wood fires, pumpkins, brightly colored leaves.  The sounds of rustling leaves under your feet.  I look forward to it.

Tomatoes

I got a call from The Farm Stand that my tomatoes were ready.  30 pounds of them.

I  started them right away in the crock pot.  Diced up onions, peppers and garlic, added some herbs and a fresh bay leaf and left them for the rest of the day.

 By the time I got back to them and tried them I decided that I would label them as soup.  What a great hardy soup for winter just add some pasta and top with cheese.  Today I am going to make another batch.  I want to dry some too.

FUNK SHUN

I dropped some items off at FUNK SHUN yesterday.  New things are added  to the shop every week.  It looks wonderful.  I love the Man Dolls which are great sellers, surely to please any guy or gal on your birthday or Christmas list.  Yes I did say Christmas, I have picked up a few things at FUNK SHUN already for Christmas presents.  Check it out and Christa is on facebook.

EGGS

Sometimes I take for granted just how wonderful chickens and the eggs they produce are.  They are a beautiful creation and such a good whole food.  My chickens delight me every day.  They are smart, sensitive and very much like people in their activities.  I am so glad that I have them.  Every two weeks two dozen eggs go to a friend at my old job

IDEAS

I have felt that the area in my brain that produces ideas has been dead in the water and somehow in the past 3 or so months its come alive again.   I am not busy making things for the shops.  Finishing up some very old projects and finding new ones that will work for all 3 places.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Carole

She is such a wonderful sheep, when I decided to take CK, they said that Maude would go to market now that would have been a shame. She loves people and her friend ck. I am lucky to have gotten her. I may just do that.
Thanks MaryJane, I am off to catch up on your blog now.
