Just some random stuff....

...Was sitting on the couch with my yarn the other night and without thinking rolled this little ball while I was on the phone. So I glued the end and stuck a stick in it and now I have a cute little pumpkin. Hmmm, I need to think about what I can do with it. 


Looky, looky, looky! I started crocheting! Do you know what I'm making? Well, don't worry, neither do I. I only know how to do a chain stitch for now. But my friend Anya said she would show me how to turnaround and go back the other direction to actually make something. 


Was watching TV the other night and decided I wanted some peanut butter candy. So I jumped up and made a batch. It is delicious. 2 cups sugar, 2/3 cup milk. Cook over medium heat to the soft ball stage. Add 1 heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tsp vanilla. Beat until it thickens and pour in a butter platter or pan and let cool. It hardens up some so it is not fudgy and doesn't need refrigerated. But it is delicious. 


We had a water leak a week or so ago and I have been taken showers until the maintenance guy could get here to fix it. I got to run water with my new faucet Tuesday night and I love it. The knobs are so much bigger than the old faucets and I love the look and feel of them. I can go back to my bubble baths. 


You know I am still on the great Hamilton Beach mixing bowl hunt. I want the large one and keep finding it for $12 - $15 but I didn't really want to pay that much. I just found this one on auction on E-bay for both of the bowls. Entire set is $19+ and that includes shipping. That is not a bad deal and I would have the matching set and it wold be less than $20 and I could quit hunting for it. I am on the fence about it. I have about 4 days to decide before the auction closes and to see if anybody else has bid. We will have to wait and see. 


...My father-in-law and sister-in-law are visiting so I am taking the day off to go to Gatlinburg today. We like to walk around the town and check out all the unique shops. Hopefully I'll find some cute things to report back on tomorrow.



We are going to take a drive up into the mountains to see if the leaves are changing yet. We will probably swing up into the Chimney's to check out.



Well, heading out for the day. Hope everybody has a great day.
