I do realize that some may view this post and incorrectly assume that I have waaay too much time on my hands because:
1) I made six dozen decorated halloween sugar cookies for kid’s classrooms and family.
2) I photographed and made a photo illustration out of sugar cookies.
3) I sat and wrote a blog post about how I baked, photoshopped, and justified baking and photoshopping sugar cookies.
I assure you this is not a symptom of having too much time. What it is: I am creatively delaying what I really should be doing like scrubbing sinks and attending to grunt business/work type stuff. Don’t tell my husband what goes on here during the day. So glad we have that all cleared up. Now back to “work.”

There is an apple under there
I think you know where this post is headed. Check out those delicious Granny Smiths. Organic, I might add, to up the health factor. We need the extra health points since the below accomplices happen to be involved…
…that’s two bags of caramels to be exact. In our defense, those apples are very big.
Yep. All downhill from there. Peanuts, chocolate sprinkles, M & Ms and more melted chocolate to boot. Did I mention organic apples?? Yum. Just another reason to love this season.

Fall in Love
I seriously love autumn. If I had my way, these leaves would be red, orange and yellow all year long. Even an extension of the season would be nice. Trade ya for a couple months of winter’s gray skies and bare branches?? Just a thought.
And then there’s the mums. I’m partial to purplish/redish types, but I’m fond of all varieties. These days I have lots of work to get accomplished so making myself pop out the front door every once in awhile (and not just to drive the kid shuttle bus
) is high priority. Enjoy this colorful season.

Crumbs and memories
Last week, we hosted our new friend Eline from the Netherlands. If she wasn’t sweet enough to begin with, she brought us me these delicious dutch cookies…karmelstroopwafels. Imagine two thin, crunchy cinnamonish waffles with caramel in the middle along with a cup of coffee. Absolutely wonderful. I’m so thankful that I couldn’t read ‘how many calories’ on the back of the foreign package because if you can’t read it, you can’t count it. And I’m sticking to that theory.
My family had a great time showing Eline the sights (especially the food!) around here as this was her first visit to the US. Unfortunately, this week our dear Eline (and those delicious cookies) is/are gone. But we’ve promised that we’ll stay in touch. Now we’re back to our regular school/work routine plus I’ve got some pretty amazing news that I promise to share soon.
