Thanksgiving Feast

 Homemade pumpkin pie made by my sister

 The start of a homemade apple pie

 The apples all chopped up and the ingredients in the bowl ready to be mixed

 All mixed and in the pan

 Has the top woven crust waiting to be put in the oven

 After 60 minutes in the oven the pie is finally done! Not the best
looking one I've ever made, but it tasted good! LOL

 Sweet Potato Casserole-family tradition

 Dinner Rolls


 Mashed Potatoes

The dinner all done and ready to eat!! Yes, we ate ham instead of a
 turkey...I have no clue why.

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving!!

My First Garden!!!


 This summer I attempted to do my very first garden!! It went much better than I thought
 it would but there are definitely things I will do differently next year. :)


 Tomatoes-they got MUCH taller by the end of the summer!!

 Baby Basil Plants

 L to R: basil, jalepeneos and cilantro

 Jalepeneos, cilantro, onions, and green beans

 Beans, watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe




 A picture of the entire garden

 Jalepeneos fresh from the garden...I was so excited!!:)

 Basil soaking in salt water to kill any bugs...I learned something while soaking
the basil and that is you can NOT leave the basil in the salt water for too long!
Otherwise it will turn black!! Believe me..I know from experience....


 Peach Preserves!! Yum!! 


 Corn from the garden

The carrots didn't do as well as I had hoped they 
would, but I did get one carrot!!

Etsy Shop

I have been crocheting like crazy trying to get some stuff made 
because I am wanting to open up an Etsy Shop! So far I have
made a couple scarves and many, many lanyards!! I am hoping 
to officially open my shop sometime in the next few days!
I am super excited and will announce when my shop officially opens!
Does anyone have any ideas of things I should make to put in my shop? :)
