Wordless Wednesday: Frosty


Orchard trip



Quick picture post today- I'm having fun in the kitchen this week drying apples, toasting pumpkin seeds, and making preparations for the upcoming holidays, but I just wanted to share a few pictures of our recent trip to the apple orchard.
Hubby and I usually head toward middle Tennessee to make our fall apple run but this year we decided to take a different route.... my wonderful friend Tammy from the blog Simple Southern Happiness posted last month about her trip to a place in North Georgia called Mercier Orchards, and her pictures looked so wonderful I had to see it for myself. Unfortunately, I didn't get to take any pictures while we were there because a certain bulldog had a very full bladder by the time we arrived, and in our haste to find a potty spot I left my camera in the car. I did take some pictures of the view on our way home, however....

This is part of the North Georgia mountains......

And this is looking back toward Tennessee.... Cha…

Friday Farm Funny: I see London, I see France.....

Around here we try to recycle things as much as possible, and that includes worn-out clothing that has reached the unwearable stage. I have a little container in the laundry room that we call the "rag box" where all the ragged socks, t shirts- and yes, undies- are washed and placed in to be used for everything from dusting ceiling fans and waxing cars to cleaning up greasy hands and dirty shoes.
This garment was used for the messy task of cleaning up our paintbrushes (and our hands) while we were staining the house, but I forgot to throw it away and didn't realize it was still hanging around until I went looking for my scrub brush.
Now, I'm not going to tell you who these belonged to, but I will say this much- I would love to think I owned a pair of undies that could be used to clean a paintbrush and the elastic still hold up this good on them.
But I don't.
And that's all I'm gonna say.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Looking at the world through a phone

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I had bought an external hard drive to store all my pictures and videos from my computer, and I forgot all about all the pictures I had taken with my phone's camera....
*sigh* (More pictures?)

Hubby and I bought our new cell phones in the summer of 2010 and we weren't really that hung up on having ones with built-in cameras; but since then I've found out that I like having the camera feature. (And so does he, surprisingly.)
These pictures are not nearly as good as my "real" camera, but they're little random snapshots in time of our life over the past year.

12/20/10- The day we brought Lily home. (She was 10 weeks old.)

Friday Farm Fotos: Fall Happenings

For some reason time has just flown by these past few weeks.... I can hardly believe it's almost the middle of November and Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! I've been busier than an ant in a picnic basket lately but it seems like there just haven't been enough hours in the day to get everything done. I also can't believe it's been over two weeks since I posted anything....

Things are finally starting to slow down around here, especially since the time changed and the days are getting shorter..... *ugh*... but at least now I can get back in the swing of being on here a little more regularly and stay caught up with all my bloggy friends.

Thanks for all your sweet birthday wishes- I had a wonderful day.
In case you were wondering what my sweet Hubby gave me-

A barn star! *SQUEEEAL*

I also enjoyed a wonderful day trip with Hubby and Lily to the apple orchard and saw some
beautiful fall colors and cute decorations along the way.

Speaking of fall decoration…
