Really Random Thursday

Today I gathered up a grocery bag full of plums and pears from the trees in our yard. We have 3 plum trees and they are full! The pears on the ground were partially enjoyed by the deer already. Nothing freaks this Texan out more than to see a deer by the house munching on fruit! I've peeled it all and put it in the crockpot to make pear-plum sauce.

Duke was seen "almost" laying on his bed! What's the deal with that silly dog. We ran out of treats the other day and he was NOT happy. I quickly got more.

I tried some improv sewing with solids recently. It was hard. I haven't given up yet though.

I saw this purple pillow at Target and decided I need to make one. A cut up knit sheet in a super long strip should do the trick. I have three in my "stash" that I got on clearance for $3 awhile back.

Mitch loved his care package. He said it was "awesome". I missed him today more than usual. Broke my own mid week rule and called him. He was eating lunch with four girls. "Mom can we talk later?", he said. Sure, no problem. At least I know he isn't lonely! :-D

I'm at the skatepark right now.
The leaves are turning and the breeze is nice. Fall is my favorite season.

I will be linking up to my girl Cindy at Live a Colorful Life!



  1. Love the way Duke is snuggling against his bed! So cute.

  2. That fruit looks so yummy!!! My dogs do that too, most times they lay on the floor and put their heads on the dog bed like it is an actual pillow!

  3. Such random goodness! Thanks for linking up. I took a picture of a pillow at Target too. And then forgot to post about it. Oh, well--next week...
