|After three days of rain, this is how the sun decided to set last night.|
It is beginning to feel like November here in the Heartland. We are thankful for the extra days of nice weather for my husband to finish the new compost bin. It isn't at all fancy but it will be better than layering everything on the ground. He spent way too much time "engineering" it and I kept reminding him what the West Ladies said in their DVD... "Everything rots". ;)
Can you believe a week from today will be American Thanksgiving? I wish we celebrated at the same time as our Canadian neighbors because the Autumn color is wonderful at that time. I took the turkey out of the deep freeze this morning and it begins its' slow thaw in the refrigerator.
So... regarding the Widget and all. First, I thank each of you who enter your Amazon shopping through a link or on the Widget (you do not have to purchase the item you click on). It is such a blessing and entering Amazon this way for your shopping gives me a tiny amount of credit (and costs neither of us anything but time). It all adds up!
The Widget still works and contains many favorites, I just can't add recently reviewed books to it as I once did. I researched the whole embedded advertisement thingy and didn't care for it at all. Just too "busy" for what I want here at Coffee Tea Books and Me. So I will stick with an old Widget and new links!
Here are a few things going on in My World recently.
The magazine was a gift (thank you!), the chocolate from Aldis's, and the pumpkin spice latte was a gift from my daughter-in-law for driving her to Menard's. She needed to pick up a purchase too large for their car.
We obviously are not boycotting Starbucks... never known as a bastion of Christians... that is a goddess on their cups! By the way, that magazine has lots of excellent tea time recipes in it.
I love this inexpensive download from Amazon... here. So enjoying the Amazon Music App that makes it simple to listen to music on the iPad that I purchase with Amazon credit.
Yesterday I listened to the podcast of Sally and Clay speaking at Hutchmoot recently. It is about cultivating an atmosphere in the home to raise creative children. It was SO good! You can hear it... here.
I've always liked the way Susan Branch had a little wreath on her window but I didn't think I could do that since my windows open from side to side.
But then I saw that one set of Velcro left from the Command Velcro package and... wallah! Those are cranberry colored beads and green leaves but the colors refused to show up in the photos.
I'm loving the thrifted oval rug! I paid $5.00-ish for it.
She's waiting by the door for my husband to arrive home.
