Chilly Saturday

The mattress is fabulous!  I'm less achy this morning.  We cleaned out all the stuff under the bed.  I made a trip to Goodwill to drop off two comforters and a bed skirt.  It was so cold at the farmer's market and there were many fewer tables today.  The market ends in two weeks and I won't be here next week.  I'll be enjoying the fall colors of New Hampshire and crafting.  I can't wait!

I got all the design stitching done on the Rose Glove so now I am ready to start the gold thread background. The metal thread is pretty flexible so I'm hoping it works out okay.

I got the bug to make a pumpkin pie.  I really wanted to go get a mini pie from the bakery but I had all the ingredients at home so I just made one.  DH doesn't like pumpkin pie so it's all mine.  It's that time of year when there are pumpkins everywhere.  I am trying to resist the bug to get a donut.  There is no season to donuts, I always want one of those.  I am very proud of myself that I have not bought any Halloween candy yet.  I always munch on it and end up having to buy more.  I pledge to buy more healthy treats.

I got the neatest lip balm.  It is root beer flavored.



  1. wow, excited to see how the gold thread looks:)
    It is a very pretty motif and lovely colours!

    Happy for you that matress is getting you better sleep and less ache. I too have a great one and it is so worth it when you have health problems.

    Take care and have a lovely day!

  2. Hi Aunt Amy! That root beer lip balm looks intriguing. I broke down today and bought myself a bag of brach's autumn mix - I couldn't resist! I love the pumpkins. I also had a pumpkin pie bagel at panera the other day, and pumpkin spice coffee sits by my coffee maker at home. I love this season! I hope you're well.
