my soup kitchen

When the weather turns chilly
I make soup...
lots of soup!
Last night's menu
included creamy chicken and mushroom soup
Tonight's selection is
copycat Panera chicken and wild rice soup.
Tomorrow it may be
one-pot tomato and basil tortellini soup.
I enjoy making soup and I enjoy eating soup.
I also enjoy
taking pictures of flowers...
lots of flowers (in Vermont)
because they were everywhere you turned.

batter up

I'm calling this bag my
"Take me out to the ballgame" bag.
The fabric design resembles the Tim Holtz line...
I am a big fan of anything Tim Holtz.
There's a little inside pocket for your cellphone.
But dang...
baseball season is almost over.
Maybe I need to make a football bag soon?

 Papa's Pumpkin Patch in Bismarck, ND...
What a fun place for Delainee and her cousin Harper
 to spend an afternoon.
Don't you wish fall could last forever?

country love

The leaves are gold and
there's a chill in the air.

It is opening weekend for pheasant hunting.

We are headed to North Dakota
 for a little country air and scenery.

Dakota Man was mixing up a batch of cement the other day...
for a Halloween surprise in our garden.
Isn't he great?
Dakota Man I mean.

Are you like me
and decorate right up to the day of?
These bottles are more of Mr. b's auction picking.
I purchased the labels which can be easily removed.
Where's my black cat?
