On the weekend of my birthday, I went to an auction with my parents while David had to work. I texted David a picture of this very creepy jack-in-the-box. Don't you think that would frighten a child? I told David I was bringing it home. ;)
These pretty peaches came from an orchard about 30 minutes away. They looked and smelled delicious! As I spent an hour peeling 8 peaches, I was thankful that I do not have to can food for my family to eat through the winter. If I can only peel 8 peaches an hour, we'd surely starve. Instead of canning (because that is not going to happen!) I put the pieces in the freezer to have for a cobbler sometime.
Tis the season for many fall festivals. We went to a very small one at a local park where they have an 1800's homestead set up. I thought the light coming in through this old barn was so pretty!
