The kids had an extra long weekend off of school, and since we had lots of time to fill, we went to Sauvie island to pick some apples. The season is practically over, but it was such a nice day we wanted to go anyway. We found a good row with a ton of perfect apples, and didn't realize how easy it is to pick 32 pounds. Needless to say we are eating a lot of apples around here.
Besides apples, we always find tons of tiny bright green tree frogs here.
Someone is having a birthday this week. I can't believe he is going to be 4! I just had to post this picture. It is so wierd. Really he doesn't have huge freaky man hands.
Here is where I spent the rest of the weekend, not a bad place to be. Especially since I cleaned. I got a couple boxes of work packed up and sent off to NY with the rest of the goodies from PDXetsy. I am looking ahead and trying hard to get as much work done now as possible. The holidays come quick. I have 2 possibly 3 holiday shows on the calendar, and I also like to make a bunch of my gifts. This year I have girls on the list. I am so excited to make girly things. I have to restrain myself a little. Besides the excitement of birthdays and upcoming holidays, the most exciting bit of news from the basement is that I finally made my first Etsy sale!! I was thrilled. I am working on filling up my shop as we speak, and will hopefully have a bunch of new things to add soon.
