Grandson Alex has a little whipped cream with his pecan pie. This reminds me of my brother Wesley and cousin Mark one year at Grandma Cardwell's. They had fun with one of the first cans of squirt whipped cream we ever had seen!

Week 46. If my counting is right, counting the stashing I'm up to 9,634 pieces of fabric.
Yesterday he came home and we took a little road trip. My friend Debby needs a pick me up, so we picked her some bittersweet.

As an ending to my day, I went to deer camp, where the guys cooked smoked crappie and trout. The women furnished river potatoes (A family tradition), a lettuce salad and brownie.

Our first spooks were our nephew Trevor and his son, our great great nephew Kaiden.
The girls go through their candy while finishing touches were add to the homemade Vegetable soup with spaetzle's. It was so good. Soup is always a tradition on Halloween as the grandkids come here as their last stop.

This is my 365 day tiny block challenge quilt.
This is week #42.
My Facebook/former blogger friend, CJ made this bread the other day. So I started it Friday and baked it Saturday. It’s not sweet, just a bit of honey is in it, but the cranberries are sweet and delicious. However next time, I would add a few more pecans.

Our first stop of course was Donut Palace in Eldon!
We had something to deliver to our Mennonite auctioneer/farrier friend in Excelsior. His wife always has a produce stand out front.
Across the street we went shopping at Weaver Market, where I found a frog I could possibly like. It was made from figs, raspberries, oranges and ginger.
Next it was to Apple Festive at Dutch Market. We followed this truck in and just had to ask to take a picture. The couple tells us it happens all the time. We had a nice chat with them.
I asked Lizzie to take mine and grandpa's picture, I thought it was funny how the Mennonite worker joined us!
The lines went very quick, one team weighed apples, the other rang your purchase up.
Grandpa and Lizzie pick out many different varieties. Now that we have them home, we can't tell which one are which.
Cute little kids in the wagon!
At Hoover's surplus store we found this Blackstone grill for $130. I texted it to Jeremy. About 20 minutes later, after we had left, he replied, BUY IT. We turned around and went back. In the few minutes we were gone it had SOLD. It was a bargain.
Shopping is hard work so she takes a little rest in a cute chair! Luckily it wouldn't fit in our car.
Lizzie made a haul. The dress is brand new with tags, Target brand, it was $2. The shoes are Blowfish brand, new with tags $55, bought for $22. The brand new volleyball shorts with tags for $2. She got 2 bottles of sunscreen, the collapsible dog bowl and 2 face mask for a quarter each at the amazon return store.
At County Road Surplus, Bernie and I scored very well too. I got a new pair of Natural Reflections flannel lined jeans regularly $46 for $18, a Bob Timberlake flannel shirt $48 for $19. The gold T-Shirts was $3. Bernie got a Natural Reflections Henley shirt $28 for $12.
At the Amazon return I bought a new cell phone case for a quarter, 2 bottles of sun screen for a quarter, and some Mousse for a quarter.
Our 18 pounds of apples for $7 and some change.
It's always fun bargain shopping and visiting with friends!
God is good.
