I started changing some colors on my blog and ended up totally redoing how it looks. I really do have better things to do, I swear.
Like stick my head in a wooden cutout of a hayride!
Today was a really fun day! I went apple and pumpkin picking with some friends about an hour away from the Cities. I scored a huge bag of Haralson apples ($14) and 3 beautiful pumpkins ($8.50). Plus, look how pretty the trees are and how cute my friend's stepdaughter is:
Okay, now for more cuteness- Look at this bunny! Isn't she perfect?
Cuteness overload! Now look at this goat chillin' up on his/her climbing contraption:
This trip reminded me how much I love goats and bunnies, reminded me how much I love hanging out with my friends, and reminded me that I NEED to make some apple donuts sometime.
I didn't do much cooking this weekend- Mostly I ate leftovers and cleaned out the fridge. I did harvest from the garden and freeze about 8 bell peppers and a pound of pasilla chiles. Oh, and made 2 kinds of salsa. And baked bread and granola. But oddly, all these things didn't really feel like cooking. Or rather, they didn't feel like cooking for fun. They felt more like chores today.
It's true that I really did need to bake bread for lunches this week and I needed to make granola for breakfasts. And I had to preserve the peppers and use up some tomatillos and tomatoes in salsa. But usually it is more fun. I think that I was a bit tired after attending two social events this weekend and all I really wanted to do was knit and read and zone out. I think I'll go do that right now...
