Ferrari Farm’s Pumpkin Patch ~ Reno, NV ~ October 2012

Ferrari Farm’s pumpkin patch, corn maze, big ole pumpkin bounce house, corn stalks, and hay rides are in full-swing now! I love how they set it up this year…lots more parking and a bit more compact. They’re open on Mon-Thurs from 9:30 am to 8:00 pm; Fri-Sat from 9:30 am to 10 pm; and Sunday from 9:30 to 6 pm. 4701 Mill Street, between Rock and McCarran.

Pictorial Musings from WPRR & Ferrari Farms

Having a bad week…so today I’m going to just post some pictures. A few from up in Portola at the WPRR Museum and then some of last Saturday’s walk around Ferrari Farms in Reno.











Happy Goat made it into the Reno Gazette Journal!

The picture I took of the happy goat at Ferrari Farms made it into the Sparks Neighborhood section of today’s Reno Gazette-Journal. Cool. I’ve yet to see it, but my mom called to tell me about it. 🙂

Hope everyone has a great weekend ~ we’ve a slight change of plans for the weekend. Instead of heading to Placerville and Apple Hill…we’re headed north to Black Rock Desert and the Smoke Creek Desert. Will visit Planet X Pottery and then head over to Trego Hot Springs and then will probably have Raviolis at Bruno's, in Gerlach, for dinner. Gotta make sure both set of camera batteries are charged and ready to go. I love taking pictures up there.

For Today ~ 13 October 2008 ~ Simple Woman Daybook

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!
