This seems to be the one post I can keep up on, but hey, it’s something right?! We are already half way through October and I’m running to keep up. This weekend was our annual trip to Green Bluff! What is Green Bluff you ask? Well my dears, it’s a magical place. No, just kidding…sort of. It’s outside of Spokane in the country where you can find all sorts of adorable farms and where you can go to pick your own apples, pumpkins, peaches, cherries (all within the right season of course). Quite a few have little gift shops, and vendors come to sell their homemade goods. Our favorite place makes these fresh, hot pumpkin donuts. They are a-m-a-z-i-n-g! And we always leave with at least one gallon of apple cider. It’s our must-do for fall. Hopefully next time I will remember to take some pictures. If you have a place like this around your town/city, I highly recommend checking it out!
And now moving on, I introduce my October currently’s
“Bones”. More like re-watching and catching up. Mikey and I binge watched this during our first year of marriage. I don’t know why, but we always seemed to start it during dinner, which is the absolute worst time to watch it. Talk about some gory stuff! We also would watch it late at night too and I always fell asleep, so I was really looking forward to re-watching it to see everything I missed. You want to know what happened? I fell asleep the first night we started! *sigh*
“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling, “A Woman’s Walk with God – Growing in the Fruit of the Spirit” by Elizabeth George, and “Better than Before” by Gretchen Rubin. Quite the combination, right? I’m actually having a hard time getting through the 4th Harry Potter book, but I’m not sure why. I suppose it doesn’t help that I haven’t had much time, and it might also be the fact that I’m reading 2 other books.
I have to say though, reading “A Woman’s Walk with God” and “Better than Before” has been really interesting to read together. One is clearly a Christian book by a Christian author, and the other is not, but one is talking about the fruit of the Spirit and putting certain things into practice and the other is talking about habits themselves, so they have been going so well together. I might write a post on these 2 books alone, so I won’t keep rambling, I just wanted to point out that it’s been a nice surprise.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies – OH MY GOSH, these are delicious! They are super soft, and believe it or not, taste better after the first day. You can’t go wrong. I will definitely be sharing the recipe.
“Spice Pumpkin Pie” wax cubes by Better Homes & Gardens. Our little apartment couldn’t smell more like fall right now. You can find candle wax warmers at Walmart, Fred Myer, or Target for a decent price. I wanted a fall smelling one that wasn’t too strong, this one turned out perfect. Coming home never smelled better. :)
And there you have it! I hope you all are having a great fall weekend!
