the chestnut pie was fun to make...
but definitely an acquired taste.

man i’ve been having some horrible sleeps this past week.

the other night i dreamt that my bottom front tooth was falling out and the dentist wanted to replace it with a tooth from an old navy mannequin. later that night i dreamt i had a vet appointment at 5am, but slept in till 7 and missed it. then i woke up for real at 7, stressing out.

last night i was dragging moving boxes overflowing with my possessions into church. after the meeting i was sitting with some teenage boys at a table and i spilled a jug of olive oil all over the table and the floor. then this lady came in and started yelling at me and I had to drag the heavy boxes out of the church, all the while legos were spilling over and the boxes falling apart. what is the meaning of this?

anyways…back to reality…reminiscing w/ lindsey today about a few years ago when everybody was advertising products to give you that “j. lo glow”. yes, we did purchase some glotion, but now I think it was a scam to market greasy skin. today we stuck with the pleated plants at gap.

going to make a chestnut pie for thanksgiving! went to pike place and picked up these delightful 'bargains' at delauranti!
some chestnut creme and chestnut puree. the creme comes in a handy little travel tube...take it on the plane, pack it in your diaper bag or simply spread it on a toothbrush. lottie says yum.

why are there no thanksgiving songs?

moss terrariums

i've been craving these for a while now. hope they work...
first i layered gravel, active carbon (for fish tanks), a little spanish moss and potting soil.

next, i collected different types of moss from outside.
found a little baby earthworm hiding in there!

i plan on misting them with water every few days and keeping them out of direct sunlight. hopefully they will stay green!

no i am not a donkey or a bunny!

saturday morning

quiet walk
fruity shampoos wafting out of steamy bathroom windows
frosty pine needles crackling under our feet
and in each little house, breakfast...
glorious lazy breakfasts!

woke up to this tree through the roof! i don't remember any wind last night...

...then found this little guy on our walk this morning.
i think its a sign.

yummy nummy cottage

i've always dreamt of sleeping in a
little gnome bed tucked away in a nook.
perhaps with some thick curtains to draw
for extra warmth!
