Outdoor decorations from the side- it’s been raining most of today and I didn’t want to walk in the very wet grass to get a centered photo
The red and green thing that’s circled is a sign that says Merry Christmas
And the other circle is Ducky, our dog, checking out the decorations
Errands this morning were a stop at Dollar Tree. They had so much cute Christmas stuff- roll wrap, gift bags and containers for food gifts.
I bought placemats- they are navy and will be just right in the breakfast room with the navy check curtains.
They look blackish but really are navy in real life.
At Sprouts we bought red grapes and giant naval oranges. Both were on sale for .98 a pound.
I washed the grapes and then cut them into little bunches- perfect to grab for a snack serving.
I learned this tip from my Aunt Bernice way back when my children were little and have fixing grapes this way ever since.
A few replies
about that raisin bread in the ABM not rising enough- I think the dough was heavy as I put quite a few raisins and pecans in. I think it needed longer to rise than whatever time the machine allowed. But thankfully the bread was still delicious!
4 of the light up wall pictures were purchased at Aldi several years ago. They use AA batteries and have switch to turn them off and on. They are easy to store away and they just stack up flat and sit on a shelf. I really like them but no actual decorator would ever approve. Thankfully, no real decorators ever come to my house 😂
Lana- I did get the email about my chopper being recalled and I started to jump through their hoops to get a replacement. But I decided I’d be more likely hurting myself destroying the recalled chopper than I would just using it carefully.
it was warm the day we put the outdoor decorations in the yard. Our weather has been all over the place- we’ve had some hard freezes, some very windy days, and today it’s been raining off and on all day. But mostly it’s been quite pleasant all autumn.
Hope you’re all having a good Thursday
