Pumpkin seeds and Decorations
This morning I'm toasting the last of the pumpkin seeds I saved from our fall decorations.... I had planned on saving some for adding a tasty little crunch to our tossed salads from time to time, but I doubt very seriously if they will last that long. I ate most of the first batch as soon as they came out of the oven and this time I had to try and control myself to keep it from happening again.
I seem to have acquired a taste tester in the kitchen....
I don't even want to think about what pumpkin seeds would do to her digestive system,
so she'll just have to settle for something else to sample.
(And preferably something that won't give her any more gas than she already has....)
Can you hear them?
They're saying, "Don't wait until we cool off... savor the flavor NOW."
"Just one little taste won't hurt me..."
Hubby got the Christmas wreath up on the barn last week.....
The sheep are happy with it... but the Silkies? Not so sure...
Their coop is right next door to the barn and every time the ribbon flaps in the wind,
they think the world's largest hawk is coming in for a landing.
One of my goals is to some day have all handmade ornaments on our Christmas tree. I only have just a handful right now, but I'm getting there by adding a few more every year.I'm still working on my new ones for this year- I ordered this pattern from a website called Connecting Threads... my good blog friend and quilter Charlotte told me about them and said she had ordered fabric from them before. I saw the kit for these tiny little mitten ornaments in their online catalog and I just had to have it- the pattern came with everything you need to make all six of them including the felt and floss.
I know some of you probably like to collect certain type of Christmas decorations, like Santas or angels... my thing is snowmen. I just love all sizes and shapes, and especially their sweet faces. These are my caroling snowmen- aren't they cute?
I also love making the table look festive this time of year...
is it just me or do the meals seem cozier when the table is decorated? ;)
Well, I'm off to put some more wood on the fire,
then work on my little mittens and to do some blog visiting.
Happy Thursday, everyone!
