As always do a little quilting and finish a few older projects though I have yet to have a few minutes to myself LOL like that's going to happen.

NEW RECIPES TO TRY:

Making a couple of new desserts this week - Cheesecake Egg Rolls and Chocolate Rum Banana Empanadas.

IN THE YARD & GARDEN

Rake leaves and cut back bushes for winter.

FAVORITE PHOTO OF THE WEEK:
We followed this truck for a couple hundred miles of mountain road. Hubby says I need to send him a Christmas card and thank him for being a good leader through the fog before we reached this beautiful area of the trees changing colors.

HOMEMAKING TIP OF THE WEEK:

Also as we head into cooler weather Menu Planning is a great way to save some money as well as trips to the store in the cold weather.

EYE CATCHING BLOGS WORTHY OF A DEEPER LOOK:

Still trying to get organized from the move so have not done as much blog hopping as I'd like.  I promise I will be so much better soon.

ON MY MIND LATELY:

Oh so much - way too much to put into words quite yet.

  4. Your photo of the hills and the leaves (with the truck) is beautiful! Glad to hear you are doing good with the move! I too watched the race and football. Since the Bills didn't play I had hopes in Jeff Gordon, but when something unbearable happened it was heartbreaking! GRRR!!! Oh well we move on to next week!
    Enjoy your week and God bless! :)

    1. I know the race didn't turn out the way I expected. I've actually been watching Larson though he's not in contention and am now looking to next year.
