Fall is REALLY here this time....and it only gets better from here!

Now that the wood is in it was time to bake up some Fall flavors!  How about some Pumpkin Pecan Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting????  Yeah....that's what I'm talkin' about!

Ready to go in the oven....can't wait!

It's done....but I have to wait until it cools before I can frost it so use your imagination in case I don't get a picture of it after it's frosted....I may just "dig in" and forget the blogging!

This is a phenominal cookbook!  The recipes are not only healthier but they taste the same!  You would NEVER know they weren't made with the high calorie, fat and sugar ingredients and trust me...I'm picky!  I have made several meals from this cookbook and they have all been scrumptious!  Check out her website 
This is her second cookbook and highly rated just like her first which I am going to have to get!

Let it snow!!!

The wood was delivered yesterday.  I need another tarp but I am ready for winter!  I still need to replenish my emergency supplies of food, water, dog and cat food and various other things.  After the ice storm here 2 years ago and having to go 8 days without electricity I have gotten even more savvy....I hope!

Fall cleaning.....ok, so it's year long around here just to keep up.

I REALLY should have taken a "before" picture here....I cannot believe I got it clean.....but I must admit I spent a lot of time on this little section!  Who would put white carpeting right up to the front door?????  Who would have white carpeting????   Who would have carpeting?
After all that cleaning I had to put my feet up and do a little stitching on my #5 block of 12 not counting the border.

A few things from the thrift store.....

I think this is a photo but either way...I love it!  It's so ME!   My cabin...ahhhh.
This was practically free and I have a few of these in different colors now....does that make me a collector?
This is a signed bulb pot for bulbs that I will plant this Fall and they will bloom in the middle of the winter!
I think this was a bell but it has lost it's "clapper"...not unlike many of us but there is still something to love!  A wee little bird perches on the very top of it....sorry for the camera is on the way!
Perfect colors of Fall...not sure what they smell like...I haven't lit them yet.

Where does the time go?

I can't believe I haven't blogged, emailed, facebooked or been on the phone!  I have been cleaning....I clean best when I am upset and I am upset because I thought Fall was coming and it was here for 2 days and then BAM!   It is hot the 90's!  I went to Fit and Sew last week and there was a table of "FREE" stuff and of course I couldn't resist!
