The kids just weren't quite ready for Halloween to be out of their system, so yesterday they...
Stayed in their Halloween PJs
(re)Sorted their candy
Scooped out the rest of the pumpkins for roasting and turning into pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup and pumpkin muffins (actually we ended up having turkey sausage-pumpkin casserole and pumpkin pie with a trick-or-treated Hershey bar shaved on the coolwhip...VERY fancy) ((And I learned that when I ask my hubby for whipped cream...he gets cool whip...and doesn't seem to understand that it's not the same thing.))
And I started a new quilt yesterday. It hasn't progressed far because of kids and all the pumpkin roasting going on...but there is something exciting about watching the beginning come together and waiting for the end result. It's called Always, and it will have it's own post soon (when it's done). But here is a tiny sneak peak... Also, I saw these branch-stemmed rustic pumpkins over on The Lettered Cottage this morning, and I really want to make them. They'd be so cute tossed into a big basket, or an old wagon.
Becoming Maggie Blue is the journey to becoming the person I want to be. After many years of living a conventional life, we decided to move to Alaska and live on a boat. Currently we're traveling full time in a camper with our two kids, exploring North America. We have no plan beyond going slowly and seeing all there is to see, and taking the time to connect and be together as much as possible in these special years.
