It has been a week of good things.
Firstly, there is house around the corner in my neighborhood that is empty. And in the backyard is a huge pear tree. So last Saturday, my neighbor and I pulled our big bin in our little wagon and picked all the pears that we could reach and shake loose. I had to separate them into two bags to ripen, so I've done two batches, but I finished my share up today. I got 11 quarts of free pears! Definitely a good thing.
And man, oh man, has my family had a love affair with acorns this year! I find them in every nook and cranny of our stroller, under pillows, and in small heaps on our front porch. And I couldn't resist the urge to collect them either. Since they have a tendency to grow white fuzz (gag), I sprayed mine liberally with a glossy sealer that has kept mine looking delightful in their antique canning jar.
And another good thing?? A wonderful week of Fall TV premieres! So while I am rotting my brain out, I'm keeping my hands busy with these. I'm not going to elaborate more except to say that they are for Christmas cards...
All good, good things.
