Weekend links and photos

This weekend I moving back and forth between my kitchen and my desk, trying to get ahead in both areas. Somehow a day can hold cake frosting, book writing, photo taking, potty training, dinner making and house cleaning, and the list goes on.

This was supposed to be a quiet month. So much for that. At least life is exciting. Busy, but exciting! Here’s what I loved reading this week:

A few photos to wrap up the week!


Seeing yourself in a book for the first time is pretty crazy, even if it is only the advanced reader copy with many edits and changes to come.


This is definitely not my usual mid-November view from the kitchen window, but I’ll take it! The hens and I are enjoying an extended fall.


Remember all those pumpkins I got for a steal? They finally were turned into purée and made their way into the freezer.


Campfire cocoa is a good way to to make memories and end a day of raking and yard work.

meals for others

More meals for others, this time for friends of ours who are new parents: pumpkin macaroni & cheese, chopped salad, pickles and pound cake.

Have a wonderful Sunday, all!
