Gentle Readers and Dear Friends the weekend once again flew by..... and although it seemed relaxing we got quite a bit done.
Let me start off with a snap of Part 6 of the Mystery SAL from Carol
I really love the scissors in this square. This is a really fun piece to do and I am so happy that I jumped right in!! Thanks again Carol!!!
One thing we did do that was sort of out of the ordinary was a quickie visit to the Flower Market..
You can really tell that Autumn/Fall was winding down and Christmas was winding up... here are some snaps from our visit....
There were a few chrysanthemums - and these where really pretty.
Unlike Madonna - I love Hydrangeas!! and this colour is great!!
These orchids look almost like silk in their perfection.
I do love a bromeliad - and these where really pretty
at Fantastico's (yes that is the name of the store) They have lots of Christmas out already...
and they even have this very pretty Fall Tree in the middle of all the Christmas ones!.
Speaking of Christmas - one of my favorite things to get are these -
Lebkuchen- a totally seasonal thing that our little German Store only gets during the Holidays - we stopped in not thinking they would have any and she had gotten some in!! Woo-Hoo!!! I was introduced to them when I travelled in Germany - this cookie originated in Nuremberg=- and you can get the there all the year.
Keeping with the foodie theme... we had a great end of weekend dinner last night - I fixed us some onion rings and Rico grilled us a steak....
Yesterday afternoon I baked up a Pumpkin Bread with a brown Sugar glaze....
This recipe was posted last week over at The Country Cook - and it is simply delicious!!!!! I'll re post it over a Blacksheep Bakes with my changes. I did finally post the Taco Won Tons - let me know if you have any questions!!
I think I'll leave off today with a snap of Smokie - he has really taken to the Big Girls bed....
There you go sports fans - thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment!!
