Happenings, Halloween, and everything in between.

Wow. So yes, we had a crazy busy, but awesome weekend!
On Saturday, Adam, Midget and I went out for some last minute shopping (more like trying to to justify driving 45 minutes to the pet store to buy new fish. ha). Later in the evening the gang came over and we had chili and cornbread, and watched watched Wallace and Gromit movies. After dark some of us dressed up and went out trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The Small Person was so tired she passed out in my arms after the first house! I guess next year she'll be a bit bigger and more into it.
Anyway, the opera house in town turned into a big haunted one, and it was the main attraction of the night. It was so cool! They did a really good job of actually making it almost scary!

On Sunday we just took it easy, made calamari, and watched Pitch Perfect 2. Neither of us liked it as much as the first one, but it was still pretty good.

Now it's back to the week! Adri and I took our morning walk, now she's sleeping, and I'm cleaning and making much-needed phone calls. I also have to go figure out what's for dinner...I'm thinking chicken, scalloped potatoes and baked acorn squash sounds about right :)

I tried out a new nail polish this week! I kinda like it...although tends to chip a bit more than my usual stuff.

 New reading material: Heist is really good so far, and I still have to start the other.

I'm back to knitting again, now that the weather has cooled down, and we are in need of new woolies.

These two guys. They love nothing better than sitting side-by-side on my desk, watching the traffic go by! 

From left to right: a cat, the moon, and Pippi Longstocking.

Calamari. One of our all time favorite meals! 


  1. Looks like fun! Love that you can create woolies for your family:). Like the nail polish!:) Christina

  2. Is that your youngest sister, as tall as the next to youngest?? They are all so pretty. Love reading about you and your life and especially that sweet lil' pumpkin! XOxoxoxoxoxoxooxxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxox Raquel

  3. your knitting is so beautiful - makes me wish I knew how. Love the little birds in your window...

  4. Into the Wild is such a sad story!!!!!!!! I skimmed through the book his sister wrote at the bookstore.

    Love looking at your books.

    We enjoy Wallace and Grommit...always have to eat crackers and cheese while we watch.

    Enjoy the day!

  5. Christina, yes, I feel so blessed that my mom taught me to knit (and sew)! And, an update on the polish. It chips super badly, so I think it would work better with a coat of nail hardener over it!

  6. Raquel, YES!! They are the same height now! Mimosa HATES it! lol Miss you! oxoxoxo

  7. Alyssa, thank-you :) those birds were my mom's (at some point, LONG ago), and I kinda stole them from her ;)

  8. Shanda, I read Into The Wild, years ago, and since then have re-read it quite a few times, and watched the film based on it. I agree that it is such a sad story.
    I took a quick visit to your blog (am going to go back and read more when I have a bit more time) and it's lovely. I so enjoyed reading about your family :)

  9. Hi again Rosie,
    I watched the movie a few years ago and I loved it....I think I read the book but I might have to pick it up again. It is sad but inspiring, somehow. :)
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
