My Friday Staycation


I almost tagged along with Pig-farmer this week on his business trip.


Then, I really looked at the meetings & traveling agenda and said, “Yuck.”

So this morning, after chores of course, I declared it a “Staycation” day.

I made some Pillsbury Key Lime cupcakes as they sounded tropical-ish.

Plus, I had the box conveniently in my pantry.


Our cool, fall morning begged for apple cider with Aspen Mulling Spices.


Now, I plan to do some brainstorming of sorts and reading.

Right there in that cozy chair tucked into our dining room corner.


Also, since it is Photo Friday and to get you in the mood for fall, pumpkin harvest has begun!  Love it!


This isn’t all of them; just a start.  Although I didn’t have as big a plot as last year.


The ornamental corn is still not ready. I hope it is soon!


For today, friends, I hope you have a cupcake, or apple cider, or both!

    Those are some of the pumpkins from your front yard? I like the warty ones – kewel looking. Didn’t you re-do an upstairs bedroom? Did we ever see pics of that, other than the floor? Was riding behind a pick-up truck today with a vanity license plate that said P-Farmer. Natch, I though Pig Farmer should have one.

    A day off from the daily work is alway such a treat!
