Monday Musings

I spent the weekend working, traveling and cooking. Friday, I helped my friend at her resale store. Saturday, I baked two pumpkin pies and traveled over to Fort Worth for a jewelry show. Sunday, I baked another two pumpkin pies along with sweet potato casserole, four cheese macaroni bake, puppy chow and five pounds of mashed potatoes for our church Thanksgiving feast.
The food was a hit. This is all we brought home:
So today, I'm relaxing. Sort of. There was school to teach this morning and laundry to do all day, but I'm doing it in my pajamas. And I plan to spend the rest of the afternoon in crafty fun before Tim comes home and we have to do the grocery shopping.

I'm making progress on my doily:
I finished rounds 28 and 29 and have worked a little of round 30. 

My little bean is getting so big:
Yes, she's wearing a Halloween skeleton outfit; it was on Walmart clearance for 70 cents. I figure, for that price, she can wear it around the house until she outgrows it. The picture's a little fuzzy because she wouldn't stop bouncing. She loves her Fisher Price Jumperoo. I can't call her the Toothless Wonder anymore; Wednesday she got her first tooth! We've started the transition to solids; she likes sweet potatoes but isn't crazy about apple blueberry or rice cereal.

I've been playing on Etsy and Craftsy lately. Found this super cute cross stitch chart:
That just tickled my funny bone. It's a free chart from PixyStitch; you'll just need to set up a Craftsy account if you don't have one.

Hope discovered Visual Journaling:
She loves any excuse to draw. Now I just have to figure out a way to count this as Art class...

I have some interesting prompts for my November photo a day challenge; I'm still mulling over how and what to photograph, so I'll have to come back for those.

Have a great day and stay warm! 
Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)
