November and Fall...

I'm so in my element with Fall, a chill in the air, wrapping up in a quilt, drinking cocoa and crocheting. Okay so in between all of this, in the last week, the hot water heater got a leak in the bottom, which is bad news, and the heater wasn't putting out warm air, which is more bad news. The only good news is we're renting while looking for a house, whew, and today we got a new hot water heater and they're putting in a new heater. YAY! Hey, I love wrapping in a quilt, but not because I'm really cold. LOL

Luckily I had a big roll of plastic to put down on the floor, because  otherwise it would be a big mess. Remember that when you have to have any work done such as this, not all companies require the men to wear shoe covers, or bring their own plastic or dropclothes to put down. Have some old rags on hand. So I'm told it will take part of a day to do the heater, that's a whole new mess to clean up. Make sure you move all things away from the area they'll be going in and out, because men are like bulls in a china shop and somehow think the inside is the same as outside. :)

Anyway, I'm almost finished with the hello kitty backpack for my granddaughter and working on doll clothes to fill it up.

We went to the pumpkin patch, had fun with the hayride and just everything there. Pumpkin butter and honeys, mm, I love pumpkins and now that I've seen so many pretty carved pumpkins people are doing I want to get a bigger one and carve it. There's nothing more fun than going to the pumpkin patch, and shopping in a little area where they sell honeys, pies, apples, preserves, jellies, jams and a bunch of other little things. It's something we look forward to every year. 

The first thing we always do there is go to the stand where they sell apple cider and apple cider donuts. I love apple cider and the donuts.

When I was a kid we had these little angel candle chimes where the heat of the candle causes the chimes to go around and the little pieces hit the chimes that ting everytime one hits them. The little candle light was for my birthday and I got it at my favorite restaurant Cracker Barrell. I love going there, love the food, and esp the little shopping area with all the old time things you can't find anywhere else.
