October 11 - Mushrooms in our front yard, I came home from work for lunch that day and snapped this. The VA Cafeteria is closed on Holidays and Weekends. Does anyone pay attention to Columbus Day? I never remember...

October 12 - Mal's food bowl that I fill up before leaving for work. It reminds me of eating off of my Grandma's blue china, you don't get to see the picture until you eat your food!

October 13 - The Finished Sidewalk! No more worrying about twisted ankles, possible broken legs or concussions.

October 14 - The best Cherry Apple Cider from Hanson's at Greenbluff, love this stuff!

October 15 - Tiff and I made apple butter, it's a 24hr process - here's the after photo - all finished, canned and "gift wrapped".

October 16 - African Daisy in the flower box out front, the frost is starting to take most of the flowers.
October 17 - Kitty rolling on the kitchen floor. Despite his mischievousness, he is probably one of the best things that has happened to us so far in 2010.

October 18 - Amy came over to learn how to make pie crust, we made 2 apple pies and a pecan pie. Lattice crusts are difficult, I always cheat and just overlap the pieces.

October 19 - New Plants for out front, I don't remember all their names. I should start a little folder to write all that stuff down. The gal who helped us pick them out is the owner of Judy's on Northwest Blvd - she is super helpful! Yay for sales and clearance plants at the end of the season!

October 20 - Malcom watching House MD with us

October 21 - Country Living Magazine, I love getting things besides bills in the mail!

October 6th - We have steps out front again!!
October 7th - My prize for finishing my exercise chart... whatever gets you motivated I say, it worked when I was two and it still works now.
 October 8th - early birthday presents!
 October 9th - I admit to cheating on this one, Joe took the picture with Jenn's camera, I just couldn't get the coloring even close with mine.
 October 10th - Close up of a scrapbook page, nice to ignore the housework and just have a lazy Sunday!

Free and Cheap, My 2 Favorite Prices

October 5, 2010 - Starbucks to go, plus a mini Carmel Via sample! for free!

My latest thrift store find, this little chair was only $7.99, now I just need to repaint it and cover it with a more visually pleasing fabric :)
