End of August


I love Sunflowers.  They have a beautiful bouquet of the Sunflowers at Pete’s Farm stand in Walpole for $5.00 right now.  Another treat that I love at Pete’s is peaches that they have now that are from Alyson’s Orchards.


I like the shawl type sweater that Kate Middleton wore when she went shopping.  It’s just right for this time of year and would look stylish with a pair of stretch jeggings, a white V-neck pullover and a pair of comfortable flats.  I think it would be fun to wear grocery shopping.


I found a free pattern to knit a shawl almost identical to the one that Kate Middleton has.  I put the link to the pattern on my Pinterest sewing and crafts board.  I found the pattern about a year ago.

Barefoot Dreams that is available on QVC has a soft shawl type sweater that is not knitted but is a very soft material in the same style idea.


I like the Olive Garden and their Zuppa Toscana soup sounds like an awesome recipe.  I pinned the recipe on my Soup recipe board on my Pinterest.


The crockpot Sausage, Spinach and white bean soup sounds really good.  I make one like it with Kielbasa that I really like.  I put the recipe for the crockpot soup on my Crockpot board on my Pinterest.


The Crockpot Turkey Breast sounds really good, also.  One turkey breast could be used with potatoes and green beans, then sliced on top of a salad and finally in delicious soup or a sandwich.  So you could get several meals out of it.



A couple of years ago we took a tour of a Yankee Barn home in Grantham, NH.  I love the double sided fireplace that they had in the cathedral ceiling great room.  On the other side of the fireplace was the dining room.  Just plain awesome.


When the Fall Maple trees start getting color in about a month or so, Route 100 in Vermont is a beautiful route to take to see some beautiful Fall foiliage.  Also the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts through the Berkshires is really pretty for a Fall trip.


I saw a really cute idea for a Fall door on Etsy and it can be personalized.  My grandchildren call me “Ma-Linda” So I would have “Ma-Linda’s Pumpkin Patch” with my six grandchildren for my pumpkins.


I saw the above idea for organizing the kitchen counter.  It looks like it saves space to me. There is never enough counter top space in my opinion.


And that’s my thoughts for today.  I think that Fall is my favorite time of year.
