Today’s Project: Making a Yellow Sock Monkey for a customer!
What are YOU doing today? Or, what are you looking forward to tonight?
Have a lovely Tuesday!
We have a bit of a cold snap going on right now. This morning, around 7 am my DH walked up to the thermostat and said, “Wow, guess the temperature.” I thought for a moment, what temperature would be really cold right now? “6?!” He says, “Ok, you must have already seen the thermostat.” I didn’t, and I was surprised. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and it is pretty darn cold outside.
Keep warm and have a lovely Monday!
Many things to celebrate today!
2. We also celebrate Halloween as a fun fall/harvest type occasion. We love to decorate, dress up for Halloween, and go out trick or treating.
3. It is also the last day of October, I am CELEBRATING!! This is always our busiest month. I am looking forward to slowing down a bit and being less busy! I might even try to read a book! 😀
What are you celebrating today?

Every year in June I buy a wee little garden mum plant from Stein’s in West Bend. They always have a coupon special for $1.99 for a little 4-5 inch pot. I plant the mum and we watch it grow all summer long. As Fall approaches, we get excited. The bigger the mum gets, the closer we are to Fall and the “bers”! I have a strange garden mum obsession!
Our mum got nice and big this year. Here she is at her peak, four days ago!
Happy Saturday, All!
Someone in one of my Facebook groups shared this quote tonight and I had one of those, “YES! YES! PREACH!”, moments. I KNOW it is vitally important to write ALL the things down. Make a plan. Write the plan down. Follow the plan, ….but, it’s HARD! And that’s why it is worth doing.
Write all the things down and have a wonderful evening!
Busy. It’s been busy. I want to just post a little update before I go back to all of the BUSY.
We celebrated my birthday last week, a small celebration with burgers, brats, cake and family. It was small and laid back, just how I LOVE things to be! Here is a picture of the birthday cake I made. It is Pumpkin Torte and it was DELICIOUS! Right before we served it, caramel topping was drizzled over the toasted walnuts and it was perfect. We also added a small scoop of vanilla ice cream for anybody that wanted it. Happy Birthday, Me!
The day after my birthday party my DH and DD went to a Milwaukee Brewer’s game. Close game, but we lost 2-3. It was a great game and I got to see Yelich hit a home run in the 9th! I love being at Miller Park!
My birthday was rad! The rest of my time has been spent getting used to my Bookkeeping classes and getting my homework done. Also, making dinner, doing laundry, falling asleep on the couch, and all of the other normal shenanigans.
And now I must return to the “BUSY”!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Hello! Just a little update…
Coffee Break Fest 2019 – Once again was a fabulous festival! They sold out of their coffee sampling mugs (500?!) and pig roast. We were surrounded by friendly and fun people, music, artists, and cars all day long. Winner of the coffee contest was Valentine Coffee. No surprise here. They had some tough competition, but their coffee is SO good! They are my second favorite coffee brand. (My absolute favorite is Collectivo.)
I gathered all of my mugs and was proud to see we have been a part of six past Coffee Break Fests. How awesome is that? (Answer: It’s super awesome!)
Thank you to everyone who organized and put together the festival, visited us at our booth, tried some coffee, ran in the 5k, looked at some cool cars, or just came out to the festival! This is a great community!
Back to School – Our DD went back to school last week. It is her first year of all day school. So far, she loves it, but it has come with a bit of stress and anxiety as well. And a little sniffle-y cold that we have been remedying with elderberry syrup and lots of hugs.
I also went back to school this week. I am taking some courses in bookkeeping. So far, so good. Always busy.
Fall – It’s coming. I’m loving it. People are already complaining about pumpkin spice. But, I. Am. Loving it!
I am off to work. Have a wonderful Thursday!
