It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, but there has been plenty of happy going on in the past few weeks. Here are a few of the treasures I’ve collected. The prettiest fruit.
Book plates I’ve had since I was a little girl. I put them in the books I gave the girls for their birthday.
This vine grows on the wall outside Eric’s building. The greens, the velvety purples, the deep reds. It is so stunning every fall.
Hillary is basically a saint. Not only is she an awesome friend, but she also lets me tag along on her Costco trips and orders things for us, since she has Amazon Prime. This box came last week. Note the name she put on the box. Hahaha!
Gin and tonics with grenadine at Hillary’s. A gin and tonic was pretty much the first drink I ever had, and it was my signature one for a long time. Eric is such a cocktail master that we are mostly trying new things every weekend, and let me just tell you: I forgot how delicious a good gin and tonic is. VERY DELICIOUS.
I have heard that pineapple tops grow new pineapples if you plant them. Since we don’t have much light in our place, I am donating this one to Hillary, and hopefully sometime soon we will have a tropical treat to share.
Today there was a pumpkin carving contest at the post office. Fun! I love that one with the big hairdo, and I like the one being stabbed too.
The hands and the nerd glasses are a really nice touch, but I think Einstein takes the cake!
I got these at the Depot. There is only one thing to say about it: yessss!!
And I got this little guy in Oakland last spring. I love it so. It gives me so much pleasure to be able to call this majestic place my home.
One more happy thing: Happy Halloween!
