It's Beginning to feel like fall!

Hope everyone has been having a lovely start to their fall!  It is finally starting to cool off some here in South Alabama.  This past weekend it rained just about the whole time, which kept me indoors, which forced me to do a few projects!

The first thing I did was can some potatoes.  My first time trying and it was super easy!  I got 20 pounds at a great discount at the grocery store, so I decided to try it out.  Haven't tried the potatoes yet, but they look really good.  I was so afraid they were going to turn to mush.

Next, we made some candy apples.  This was my husband's request (I prefer caramel apples!).  I don't know if I enjoyed making these.  They were messy.  Maybe it was just because I don't really eat them that I didn't enjoy it?  They stick to my teeth so bad I can't stand it, but I thought they turned out really pretty :)  Nothing says fall like some apples, or candy/caramel apples for that matter.

And then...While I watched the Alabama game with my husband (ROLL TIDE!), I made my daughter a hat with the Knifty Knitter that my Grandmother got me.  It didn't take long at all and my daughter loves it.

In other news, pecan picking season has begun!  That also means chasing off cows while we are picking pecans!  I had my I-pod on the tailgate of the truck playing music while I picked and one actually put it's nasty nose on it. I thought she was going to eat it LOL. 

Have a great week! It's over halfway over YAY!


  1. Canned potatoes are really good. Once in awhile I will get one that doesn't look right so I will just toss it. The hat looks really good.

    I bet the pecans will be really tasty. Have a wonderful day.


  2. I have never heard or thought of canning potatoes! Can they last a long time I guess? How fun to get to go pick pecans!
