September Favorites


I sampled this cereal for you!  Special K comes up with some pretty great flavors. How about the one with chocolate bits in it or strawberry? Anywhoooooo…I like pumpkin and spice and get excited when the flavor debuts every year. I don’t try much of it I must confess. I mean some things like little muffins and packaged things just don’t do it for me. I am more of get a pumpkin spice latte once or twice (ok, I’m lying…three) and make some pumpkin scones. I prefer the homemade goodies…altho’, starbucks has a pretty good pumpkin scone. The icing on the top alone is worth the extra sugar rush. This cereal has a hint of pumpkin, not overwhelming at all. MrD thought it was too sweet, but I didn’t get that at all. Just the right amount of spice and sweet.

Hail the Apple!


Wow! Life has really gotten in the way of my blogging lately. LOL First, I took a few days off to get my house cleaned…oh yes, I was getting really behind. When your hubs asks if there will be any clean underwear coming soon you know you’d better stop and catch up on things. Then this last week my daughter’s cosmetology school shut down. You may have seen it in the news. They closed all 79 schools across the country. No warning…one day they were in school then that night they get an email and the next day they were to go to the school and clean out their lockers. Yes…it was very traumatizing. We have since found another school and it looks like it’s all going to work out for the best. So…back to weekly dinner menus and looking for yummy desserts. Apple Scone anyone? Oh yes please! Especially with an apple cider cinnamon glaze.

Weekend Wanderings Episode 5



In August, Mr. D and I had a great 2 weeks on the road. We took our time and stopped when we saw something interesting and had no agenda. It was fabulous! It’s a great way to take a vacation. We have spent so many vacations in a huge hurry to get somewhere which was fine at the time, but if you can this is a great way to go. We both were in agreement we will do this again. Here are the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

It’s Pumpkin Time!

It's Pumpkin Time!

It’s Pumpkin Time! Already. Can you believe? I cannot go into a store without being bombarded with everything pumpkin flavored. I even saw Pumpkin Cheerios! I mean I like the flavor, but cereal??? Have you tried it? If you have…please leave a comment and tell me. I may just have to spend the $4 to try them.

I have been decorating just a little for fall. I don’t do a whole lot, just little touches here and there. I go all out for Christmas so I don’t feel like having to dismantle everything for two holidays/seasons so close together. Plus, my husband has a fit every year when I start getting all the boxes out and tells me that I need to get rid of some decorations. I can’t imagine if I started adding a bunch of fall, too. AND how do you get rid of decorations?!! Isn’t there a law against that?
