Last Call for the Farmers’ Markets

When you’re out and about today (jaunting?)…you may want to stop at the Farmers’ Market.  Sadly, here in Minnesota, several of my favorite Farmers’ Markets are closing this week.  Another sign that summer has ended…but, again fall has its own rewards…sweaters, apples, acorn squash and the ever-photogenic pumpkin!  I can’t wait to put on my Irish knit sweater — you know, the one that feels like a house coat and makes you look 20 pounds heavier…I have three! I can’t wait to put one on and go apple picking!  (We’ll save pumpkin picking until the girls are home for break.)

Have a great Saturday-wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!

PS…Don’t forget to get some flowers for the house…

It’s time…Footwear Friday


It’s officially time…I had to turn the furnace on last night.  So, sadly… it is time to put all of the sandals, flip-flops and open-toed shoes away for a while.

The only thing that makes this sad day bearable, is that I love suede!  Purple suede, black suede, brown suede….wait….I don’t have any blue suede shoes…perhaps it’s time for a shoe-shopping jaunt….!
