Not to be outdone by Connie’s recent blog about her Halloween Pumpkin Patch escapades, on Monday the 11th in honor of Columbus Day, Lynn and I were both off from work, so we spent our day in similar fashion! This first picture is of the bake sale. My favorite goodie was a brownie, chocolate chip bar! Yummy! When I figure out the recipe for this one, I will share!
This is the “pumpkin patch” we have the tradition of going to—it is off of Quaker Lane, and Seminary Rd. The address is 3606 Seminary Rd. Alexandria, Va. It reminds us of Grandma Nelson as it is an Episcopal Church.
Later that day we put out our pumpkins for a picture only! We can’t leave them out for fear of squirrels! In fact, our neighbors bought a pumpkin that day as well, left it out, and not it is history for all the hungry squirrels in the neighborhood!
Later that night we walked to Fairlington Pizza as part of our Family Home Evening. O’ yeah, we walked to breakfast this morning to Bob and Edith’s Cafe. All in all, we logged in over 9 miles of walking together this day. It was a great way to stay fit and welcome in our fabulous fall!
I told Anne I would show her my new magnetic “spice rack”. The rack is actually the side of my frigerator! I am so proud of this. I now have room for food in my cabinets, instead of just spices. My labels were made with the new label maker Lynn suggested I get that is computer compatible. Go ahead, spice up your life like I did mine!
