I especially love the one about Farmer Markets!!!!

Happy Autumn!

It's here! Soon the leaves will change and give us one last beautiful sight before falling away to winter. But first we will soak up the last few warm days!!

My favorite thing about today: Dancing with the Stars starts tonight!! WOOHOOOOO!!! I hope everyone tunes in! I actually will be at Speed-Dating with the girls tonight, so I will have to Tivo! But this is just night one of three!!! I can't wait!

OH and last night I finished The Good Guy!! It was sooooo good!!! A non-stop thriller that I just couldn't put down! I highly reccommend to everyone! :o)

This website is AWESOME!! I good customer at the Market handed me a flyer for it. For each 10 correct answers, they will plant one tree in a deforested area of Africa!!! Very cool!

"By joining the Jogo community and answering green questions, you are not only making a difference through planting trees, but helping spread the word about green issues. Together we can make a difference!"

**** Me so far! ****

Your Impact
You've planted 1 tree
In all, we've planted 51,069

"Together we can save the world." Just one tree can take 60 pounds of pollutants out of the air! Lets plant some trees! GO GREEN!

P.S. - I believe today was the last day of the Market. :o( Peaches, Nectarines & Berries are over with aka the money makers. We can go next week if we want and sell apples, but the farm in Albion is getting busier with the Fall/Apple season.

To all my readers in A-Town: This is good news for you though! Watt Farms is now starting Train Rides for U-Pick Apples. ALSO, they have hired a gentleman to do a pig roast each weekend too! Doesn't that sound like the perfect day??? LOL ;-)

Poker Face

First, let me say I'm sorry at how inconsistant and sporatic my blog posts are. It seems like I have about once a week when I actually sit still long enough to blog. For those who check back regularly, I greatly appreciate it!!

Now I forgot to tell everyone that while I was camping last weekend at Alleghany State Park, I learned to play Texas Hold'em!!! But the best part is, I almost won!!! It came down to me and one other guy, I'm sure it was pure luck. But I was on top of the world!

And I'm currently reading: The Good Guy by Dean Koontz.

This is my 2nd book in a row from him. On page 12, the bomb dropped. A regular guy sitting in a bar was mistaken as a hired killer. Before he can say anything the guy leaves. Next walks in the real contract killer. The regular guy pretends he is the guy who hired him and calls off the deal. But the killer isn't fooled and soon is hunting him... and the woman to be killed.

OMG doesn't just that paragraph make you want to read it!? I plan on spending all weekend with it! :-)

PartyLite PARTY!

My PartyLite Party turned out awesome! Not only did Mom come and get to meet all my friends, but we had awesome attendance! Things quickly turned into a regular party with wine flowing, friends laughing and conversations that had to be louder than the next! It was an awesome time! Thanks everyone who showed up, especially you Mom!! The only bad thing is I didn't take any pictures!! But that was because even I was having too much fun! LOL

Oh and on a special side note, I just won my first ebay bid! WOOHOO!! Here it is Ladies & Gentlemen, a one-of-a-kind, GENUINE Cowboys Hat!!!!! I can't wait!!

42 Quarts Canned!!

I'm so behind on my blogging that I didn't even have a chance to share my first tomato canning experience! Mom and I were able to pump out 42 quarts in about 4 hours! Our system was efficient and only faltered once when I broke my first quart! LOL I love using all these tomatoes for sauces and things all winter. In fact I just used one to make Taco Soup! YUM! But my favorite part of canning is the time I get to hang and chat with my mom!! She knows so much and is always fun!! Oh and drinking wine is good too!! :-)

At one point Mom asked me if any of my friends canned. They don't and we decided that canning is truly a dying art. This only concreted in my mind that I will continue on our family's tradition of canning and preserving! I'm hoping to try new things as well!

Maybe Just A Few Things....

Even though I love Summer and never want it to end, there are some things I look forward to in Fall...

The leaves are beautiful as they change, and the crisper weather is inviting for sweatshirts :o)

Halloween! Just decorating for it is fun!

I love pumpkins, even if you choose not to cut them!

Apples! I love the different varieties and working at Watt's!
