A few weeks back we harvested the garden. The potatoes, carrots, cabbage and tomatoes gathered that day were paired with a couple of pieces of corned beef and fed the ten of us who gathered for the usual Thursday family dinner.
The end of the harvest from our little city plot.
Peggy had the garden ....I do the baking...together we had a Halfway to St. Patrick's Day!
Dinner time craziness!!!
Tastes so good when it comes from your own garden!!
For the past two weeks I have been pounding my sewing machines to near death. Besides some Etsy orders there were costumes to be made for Halloween!! All were done and delivered by last Friday [<;
My Muerto del Titanic and Hogwart student grudgingly posing today.
Much happier to be heading off to collect candy with the friends than the sister!! She went Trick-or-Treating this year despite the homework assigned by EVERY teacher because the middle school decided that 8th graders are too old to celebrate Halloween!?!?!
The younger set happy to be together without those silly teens! Oh, and the grammar schools decided that Halloween night was a good time to assign homework as well!?!?!?! This Mom decided the teachers would reap the rewards of what they had sown...after Trick-or-Treating we did the homework....which resulted in a two hour delay in the usual bedtime....so they can suffer the behavior tomorrow of two sleep deprived girlies hepped on sugar to keep them from nodding off!!!
This is my version of an Angry Bird made for a friend's son (-:
And the view of his tail feathers.
The Tarzana costume and the ...ah...um...Fallopian Swim Team member are awaiting the promised pictures by the recipients!!! Yes, that would mean you Steven!!
We also prepared for November 1st , Dia de los Muertos by decorating our ofrenda...
...which included our plate full of sugar skulls made last weekend.
There are still plenty of leaves on the trees waiting for the cold winds to blow them down. We've only had a mild frost or two...unlike our poor friends out east who were slammed with snow. The weathermen are trying to scare us into being prepared for one heck of a snowy winter....I should listen and prepare...but I'm not ready to let go of fall just yet!
