Fall flew by us, way too fast. We both had some work changes, minor for him… major for me, both caused major scheduling insanity. I think we had two weeks where we barely had much time for each other. Now, thanks to a minor miracle of a software special and amazing Black Friday sales, I have a new home office and no more scheduling problems! Here’s a few things we’ve been up to, instagram photos included 😀
When I haven’t been working, I have kept up with trying new recipes. Including the ever so famous No-Knead Bread recipe. We’re only slightly addicted…. hehe! I’ve already put a good dent in the pound of yeast I bought in October.
I’ve also baked some seasonal goodies like Caramel Apple Spice cookies and Pecan Pie Bars. Mega yummy!!!
Since it’s cooled down, Riley has become a pretty big cuddle bug. When she’s given a choice between an activity (like greeting Jeff when he gets home) and cuddling up for warmth… she picks the warmth. You would think she only had one layer of fur, not four!!!
Baby has also had some changes with the cool weather, her comb and wattles are finally coming in!!! They’re redder in person, but not nearly as red as her sisters’. I’m interested to see if she starts laying now or waits until the spring. It’s kind of hard to tell, especially since they slow down laying this time of year. So far I don’t think they’ve slowed down OR that she’s started laying. Sigh. Egg math is hard!
I’ll be back soon with some recipes! We’ve continued to cook with the slow cooker, but we’ve also gone back to using the oven and stove now that it’s cool weather again!
