Celebrate the Small Things
This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. If you'd like to join in and add a little more joy to your week, then go ahead and sign-up on the linky below. We'd love to see you!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Cheesecake! I found a couple recipes for layered pumpkin cheesecake and mixed them together to come up with a super-duper desert. It uses a spice cookie crust, a vanilla layer, a pumpkin layer, whipped cream, spice cookies and then melted chocolate. Messy and yummy.
2) An ugly Halloween sweater! While walking through an antique store, I found the perfect Halloween sweater with little pumpkin heads dangling along all edges. I'll post a pic at Halloween.
3) My daughter's big head! Lol! Not really. I'm just teasing her that she's going to get one. She had quite the week. A guy at school asked her to prom (already????) during lunch break with posters and announcements over the speakers and just a huge thing. (I guess a lot of guys are planning on asking her and he wanted to be first. Go figure.) Then, mid-week she was surprised to discover she'd been nominated for Miss Christmas by her class. She got 75% of the Junior votes to be in the running. (No, I don't know what Miss Christmas is...but we're going to find out.) And lastly, I 'snuck' her out of school to eat lunch with me yesterday and we just happened to pass by a clothes store for her to look for jeans (*hehehe* evil Mom), and as we were paying, the owner came up and asked if my daughter wants to model his clothes on the bi-annual catwalk he takes part in. As said, quite the week.
4) Pears! My brother brought over two big boxes of pears from his tree. I've been searching the net for ideas (what to do with so many pears!!!!) Today, is pear and blackberry jam making day. I also sliced some up and put them on my hubs jerky dryer hoping they'll turn into dried pear slices (they still are running through). Any other ideas???
So what about you? Have a crazy week? Getting any writing done (I know, what's that?)? Buy a pumpkin yet? How about a warm cup of apple cider? What are you celebrating this week?
