We ALMOST moved a few times this month. I have mentioned our big Catch-22: We live 30 minutes from my husband's job that doesnt sustain us. We cant afford the commute on his paycheck yet we dont have the paycheck to move. Hmph. We had many miracles unfold before our eyes, but the right house still isnt there and we dotn feel right accepting from anyone the $4000-$5000 it would take to pay first months' rent/deposit, and deposit for utilities.

SOOOO...we have scheduled a fumigation. Wow huh. We are a bit nutty about dust and chemicals and things most people dont even consider. We have some severe allergies and asthma and a 2 month old baby. We dont have the money/mental or physical energy needed to evacuate.

I also just realized has been in Cub Scouts for 4 years and needs ONE more camping trip to earn his Arrow of Light. He MUST do this the weekend before the fumigation. When I would be preparing. My husband is alos working that weekend. I am so not the camping person and dont want to go alone with a newborn, two year old, two rambuctious boys and a little girl. I really don't. Photobucket

New Autumn Tradition?

I love Autumn! I love the warm colors, crispness in the air, pumpkins, gourds and apples....BUT it has been in the 80's here in Southern California. It's October now, and still warm!

I was at the grocery store tonight and found this on sale:Photobucketcan you make out that is is PUMPKIN SPICE?

AND there was a coupon! If you bought two you got $1.00 off AND ice cream was on sale too...Photobucket

I liked the idea of pumpkin spice and rich rich chocolate...I dont have any Autumn bowls YET, (I like the idea of a set of brown transferware dishes.) For now, our Autumn mugs were quite fun.


The pumpkin spice sauce was REALLY good. Would it be pushing it to put it on peanut butter sandwhiches?
