Pinterest 5 in 5 days challenge and some other doings

Happy Fall Y'all!  I knew fall would be here soon but I don't look at the calendar much and was happy to read on Betsy's blog that fall had for sure arrived.
I bought a couple of mums and a couple of pumpkin type things.  Baby JJ and I found the green things,  I think they are horse apples maybe, growing on a tree behind the pond in our addition our morning walk.
I really like their apple green color and free always makes me happy.
That tonka truck belonged to my sons when they were little and now my grandsons like it just as much as their uncles and dad did.
Carlye Jo is having a Pinterest challenge on her blog,  to make 5 Pinterest pins in 5 days this week.  I love to do stuff and my first one will be some breakfast pockets.  The dough is mixing up in the bread machine as I blog.  The pockets should be quick breakfasts to keep in the freezer.  There is plenty of time to join in with us too.
Speaking of freezers,  I defrosted ours this morning.  The frost on the sides was starting to build up and pushing up on the baskets making it hard to get the door closed all the way.
I also put away some clean laundry that was air drying and straightened up the garage.
I don't usually get so much done when baby JJ is here but he is especially sleepy today.  He must of had a great weekend with his parents and big sister.
JJ likes to hold things while he sleeps and at my house,  he likes a bird potholder.  

Hope you all have a good Monday- whether you like to do stuff like me, or nap like sweet JJ.

  1. You know, I think all babies are cute but Rhonda, you have the most BEAUTIFUL grand babies!!! Aww...that is just the cutest baby sleeping there! :)

    I need to defrost my freezer! Alex got in it and left it about 1/2 " open over night. ugh. It's VERY frosty. I've since started locking it.

    We call those hedge apples. Very fallish...and they look great in that old truck!

    1. Thank you Betsy, you know I think he is the cutest baby. He looks a lot like his mom and his sister when they were babies but he has his daddy's blue eyes.

  2. Those green horse apples are wonderful (and great that you got them for free). I have some fake ones. Oh my freezer is the same and I took a rubber mallet and broke up the ice the other day. :)

    1. Hi Manuela, I am working on another project today, inspired by your shower pantry. It is turning out just as I hoped and will show it when I get it finished.

      Oh no, a mallet to the freezer ice? I used a blow dryer and a pancake turner.

  3. I like your fall vignette. The horse apples (AKA Osage Orange) fruits make a good insect repellant. You cut them up and throw the pieces in the corners of your garage and basement

    1. Osage oranges, I wonder if they are named for the Osage tribe? That very interesting about their bug repelling. I hope they will at least keep the spiders away from the front door.

    1. Thank you Debby, I think he is sweet and adorable too. He may be the last one and I am enjoying every minute I see him.

  5. That little JJ is just a twin to his big sister, isn't he? I was wondering what Nina had sewn to JJ's shirt... LOL. Isn't it fun to see what the babies claim for their snugglies. Silas has a stuffed cat that my mom gave to Jess when she was about the age Silas is now.
    Love the look of those hedge apples and mums! Brad put together a scarecrow pumpkin patch on the front porch yesterday and I'm about to put up a blog post about it. He loves decorating as much as I do - I finally have a partner in crime!
