FOR TODAY … 16 October 2008

Outside My Window…Sunshine and lots of it. Cold! Frost on the car windows.

I am thinking… What a nice Sunday it was…after church we went to the Ferrari Farms just on the other side of the Truckee River from us. Since I have my pumpkins already from my garden I just took my camera. :) Lots of kids (of all ages!) were excitedly picking the perfect pumpkin.

I am thankful for… Same as last time…Cold nights and warm quilts. Rechargable camera batteries. And that my husband has a job for another 3 weeks.

From the kitchen… – Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies. Oven baked chicken with Hot Cabbage Salad and biscuits. The cabbage turned out yummy.

Just fry up 4 pieces of bacon (cut up into bite size pieces) add 1/2 cup chopped onion then when bacon is crisp and onion is cooked add six cups coarse chopped cabbage and 2 TBSP water, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, and lots of black pepper. Stir and cook over med-high heat until cabbage is wilted but still somewhat crunchy. Splash in some Apple Cider Vinegar…I did something like 3-4 TBSP worth. Serve immediately.

I am wearing… Jeans and my Tigger sweatshirt with tennis shoes and hair pulled back into a ponytail.

I am creating… A pinwheel lap quilt to donate.

I am going… …to plan a trip to Apple Hill for apples and to wander around the antique stores in Placerville.

I am reading… The Twilight series ~ half way through the last book.

I am hoping… that the temp job my husband is working will just keep him on through the year.

I am hearing… The Adam Carolla Show via my computer.

Around the house… Winterizing the house.

One of my favorite things… Watching kids picking pumpkins.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Keep working on the quilts. Continue working on the enclosed porch windows. Winterize the garden.

Here is picture thought I’d share with you… Taken at Ferrari Farms yesterday.


Isn’t this the HAPPIEST LOOKING GOAT?! He LOVES the sun!

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)

    That is one happy goat:). I keep thinking about getting one as a pet but don’t have the room or a high enough fence.

  2. Michelle's Mom says:

    Hi Michelle, That goat started off my morning with a big laugh… Could you make me a copy of that goat? Thanks, Mom

  3. Jen says:

    I love the happy goat. The children and I went to a pumpkin patch today. We had such a great time.

  4. Lisa says:

    Your menu sounds yummy, and I especially appreciate the order: cookies FIRST, then chicken, cabbage salad, and biscuits. You know your priorities.

  5. What a great pic! I love pumpkin patches and the fall. Nice quilt blocks.

    Great picture of the goat. You should enter that in a contest or something!

  7. ROFL! Thank you for the laugh, Lisa! Giggling…yes, cookies always first.

    Isn’t that the greatest face? That goat was too cute. I’m hoping that the RGJ here in Reno/Sparks puts it in their Neighbhorhood section of the newspaper.

    Ah, can you smuggle me into your backpack to Apple Hill and Placerville? ;)

    I go with you in spirit at least.

  9. Sure thing, Sweetie! :) I’ll take lots of pictures for you!
