Next week is gonna be the first day of fall....but I will have one more post before summer ends this Sunday when I announce the winner to the Earring Contest.
I have been so busy every day this week! on Monday I went to Folsom, California to meet my friend Annette from Jr High School. Folsom California is famous for where Johnny Cash was in prison. It's a really cute Historic Town, but also it has a lot of new areas and is one of the most beautiful drives from my house to there with all the hills and horses and Million Dollar homes along the way. So we had a great visit and we plan to get together every other month. I miss her so much, just seeing her again after a decade made me realize how sad it is we get so busy in life we forget to enjoy some of our favorite friends. She works for Intel so she is super busy and she has a very good job there. It sounded stressful to me. She has worked her way up from the bottom. Good for her.
I have been so busy making jewelry this week, it's been a great week for me. I have to show you my photo with Annette. She is the mama of 4 kids and two are twins. They are all grown up now like mine.
We were both so happy to see each other. I was so excited and so was she. It really made my week!
Wow it's so hard to get Pumpkin you cannot get it in the city I live in at all, well you can't get a lot of things here, crafts and many other things. So today I had a Doctor's appt so I left early to get some dog food from Ben's Bark and Bistro, Joann's Craft for more yarn to finish my cloche and then went to the Nugget, they had only 4 small organic pumpkin at 2 for $5.00 I bought them all. Then I decided to go to another store on my way, where my daughter shops called Winco and they had about 20 of the large cans of Libby's Pumpkin, so I bought 8 large cans. So now I have eight Large cans of pumpkin, plus four small ones. Finally after a month without pumpkin I have pumpkin in my pantry. I use it for the dogs and make pumpkin bread with walnuts and pumpkin pie of course. I get so frustrated when I cannot find it, there has been a shortage of it the past few years.
Okay here is my stash before I put it away in the pantry.
Do you have your pumpkin yet? I see Ebay is selling it at outrages prices. What I want to know is if one store can get their hands on it, why can't Raley's or Safeway? it's crazy.
Here is a jello salad I made called Sea Foam Salad
I was not old enough to drink until 1980, so that gives you a clue to my age now. There will be a test on this later. LOL!
Tomorrow I am going to see my mom and then Saturday we go to watch Shane graduate, he will continue for his bachelor's degree in computer science, unless he has changed his mind again.
Steve bought another car to fix up and sell so he thinks he can make 3 grand on this car after he rips out the engine and redoes it. I must say he is pretty handy to have around. Wink!
Have a great weekend and if you participated in the contest I will see you back here on Sunday!
