Images of Fall

Just a few photos I took while walking around the back yard. Fall is my favorite time of the year....

My sweet mom planted these mums years ago and they came back so pretty this year.

Weekends are for working!

I am loving this fall weather. Living in the south has made me despise summer. This cooler weather has me in a cooking mood. I got up Saturday morning and got some marinara simmering. It smelled so good. I have no idea why there is a bottle of fish seasoning in this picture. Clearly that didn’t go in the sauce. Yuck! 



I have to have music when I cook. This nook is perfect for that. I really only use it for Pandora and Netflix. Who said you had to read on it? Ha! 



I got to spend a few hours with my best friend. We made posters and sashes for the senior night football game this weekend. We made a few inappropriate posters as well, but I better not post those. It’s always fun spending time with a friend who has known you practically all your life.



 After all the fun it was time to go home and work. We had to haul rocks, that’s always fun right?



 We split a lot of wood, well maybe I shouldn’t say “we.”

We wrapped up the day with a bonfire. I’m so happy the nights are finally cool enough to build one. Maybe next time I will remember the marshmallows!

I wonder if I'm the only person who saves the little K-cups from the Kuerig to brew in a regular coffee pot? It just seems like such a waste to throw them out. See, I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I love the smell of it brewing. So, I don't actually drink the "leftover" coffee, I just brew it to get the aroma in the air!

I did find a recipe on Pinterest for Pumpkin spice latte. It looks so good, I can't wait to try it. A while back I bought one of those hot chocolate/latte makers at Walmart, I bet that would work really well to do the froth on top. Whenever fall rolls around I am ready for pumpkin everything!

Sweet Grandson

I feel like I’ve really neglected my blog. I guess I have good reason though. This little guy was born in August and I just can’t get enough of him. Luke Waylon is my first grandson and I couldn’t be prouder. I will be keeping him full time starting November 1st. Knowing I get to see him on a daily basis makes this Nana’s heart happy.
