Golden Birthday

Well, I am very happy to report that, just as I suspected, Sandy did not have much of an effect on us here. In fact, our leaf pile is still fully intact.


That’s actually sort of surprising though, since it was pretty windy here most of yesterday evening. Going to bed last night was pretty noisy from the wind too, and I kept getting worried that one of our (broken) trees on the side of our house was going to come crashing down on the roof. Thankfully, they did not.

From what I’m hearing and seeing though, it sounds like she made quite an impact elsewhere, so if you were in her path, I’m sending lots of thoughts and well-wishes your way!



Nothing like a warm bowl of pumpkin oats to start off the day.


I added lots of raisins to today’s batch, along with a generous serving of some apple peanut butter.


I few weeks ago, I was sent a couple jars of Reginald’s Homemade nut butters to try, and one of them was this Apple Sin peanut butter.


It’s pretty good, but not my favorite. There are, however, quite a few other flavors on their site that sound pretty enticing – hazelnut amaretto peanut butter??  Sign. Me. UP!

I’ve got quite a bit to do today, but before signing off this morning, I have a quick little shout out to give. Today is my Sarah’s GOLDEN birthday – she’s turning the big 3-0 on the 30th!


Fun Fact: I will ALSO have a golden birthday – 30 on January 30th, but not for another year and 3 months, so Sarah is still old. Winking smile

Juuuuuust kidding! Happy Birthday, Sarahhhhh!

Question for the Morning:

When was/is your Golden Birthday?

I always joke with Jay because he didn’t even get to celebrate his…he was 1.
