Are you all preparing for the weekend? I expect it will be beautiful (thank you, fall), and I'm celebrating with some apple picking on Sunday (and knocking something off my list at that). For this afternoon it's just me and Shira cleaning house. I've kicked Matt and Alyce out to the library and park so that I could wash the floors and bathrooms. I've got Shira set up in her high chair colouring while I scrub. Cleaning the floors makes me happy. The bathrooms? Not so much, but it needs to be done (especially when one's mum is coming over to baby-sit this weekend).

A few interesting things from the week:

A cookbook club. Mine is already in the works, thanks to some good friends who like to eat as much as I do.

A birthday celebration fit for a cat. Trust me, this is worth the crazy.

I'm still waiting (impatiently) for my copy of Design Sponge at Home.

Another blanket I would like to knit.

The zucchini bread I just made (it's still in the oven), though not for the first time. This one's a keeper.

Hope you have a delightful fall weekend! And for those of you on Canada's East coast, I hope the storm is kind to you.


  1. The cat lady... cute... but yikes... someone has too much time on her hands.


  2. Oh, I love the cat lady! It reminded me of how much I loved my cats before I had children. Poor cats. But they never did get a birthday party.

  3. Great post. We have been apple picking as well. Lots of baking, canning, cooking and drying! I love this blog.
