Halloween Time

It's been a long time since our family has put effort into decorating for Halloween since were not home on Halloween while they were little going trick-or-treating. This year it was different. We're actually going to be home to pass out treats. Our girls wanted to put up decorations so off we went to buy some that are already made and some made at home. I actually enjoyed the whole process and look forward to decorating a lot more. First off was to make some bow ties for our cats. Through trial and error, I was able to whip these up. After the mistakes, it was a breeze and boy was I whipping them out left and right.

A Bakery Stop

Two or three years ago we discovered a small cafe in Ramona, CA with the most delicious cinnamon rolls ever. Since then we've gone up to the cafe once a year to have our treat. We were disappointed to see that they've shrunken the size and still charge the same amount. It still taste good.

We've done some gardening on and off the last few years. We took a break because we didn't have much success the year before. Our soil wasn't the greatest and we had major gopher problems. This year I did some soul searching and realized that my heavy schedule was causing me to neglect other responsibilities. My family has gone to mostly organic or non-gmo foods due to health and dietary changes. It has been wonderful to really taste foods in their natural and unprocessed state.
