Some things are better left to the professionals.

I thought you all might enjoy my very sad attempt at cute Halloween nails. Yeah, I look like a crazed Cincinnati Bangles fan.

You'll be happy to know that shortly after this photo was taken, I took it off. I think I'm going to have to leave nail designing to the professionals.

Pumpkin Chip Cookies

My friend Heidi posted about these cookies. I made them recently. I am supposed to be on a diet. It was an unwise decision.

Honestly, I'm not a huge pumpkin fan so I thought I'd be okay. Well. I ate one and that was it. They are really yummy! THey just taste so Fallish!


Pumpkin Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 Cup Pecans (optional)

Cream butter and sugars.
Beat in the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla.
Combine the flour, oats, soda, cinnamon, and salt~ gradually add to creamed mixture.
Stir in morsels.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

On the Road Again...

We will very soon be going here...

...where the pretty is. And where the leaves are changing. And the cool breezes blow.


It will be lovely. All the family will be together and we have a bonus kid coming. We'll bring the dog, we will meet up with other family and friends, we'll roast marshmallows and sit by the fire.

We'll drink warm coffee in the crisp morning air.

I love camping.
