Make Hay while the Sun Shines

My mom got to my apartment a few minutes after I had got home. When I went outside to help her carry stuff in, the front door key somehow fell off of my key chain. I buzzed every apartment, but no one was home to open the door. Thankfully Jared was able to leave work early and let us in! (And no worries, the front door key was sitting on my ironing board)

We raked up the mulch that had been spread all over the yard. Then we spread a few bales of hay so that dirt won't get dragged in the house. Plus I think the hay goes really well with the Octoberfest theme of the party.

Miles had a lot of fun playing in his new and improved yard. I worked up an appetite!

Per usual, my mom brought lots of food with her. She brought leftover sandwiches from her staff meeting yesterday. I had 1/2 of a turkey sandwich for an appetizer.

Jared made dinner. Tonight's menu was simply Annie's mac and cheese. I ate mine plain, while Jared topped his with lamb sausage that he bought at Lionettes Market. He also brought some shaved turkey breast from Lionettes, and it's in my sandwich that I'm bringing for lunch tomorrow. Lionettes is known for their local clean sustainable food. Mmm!

When I was cleaning up after making my sandwich, I accidentally spilled pickle juice all over the bottom of my fridge and my kitchen floor. What a mess! I had been avoiding washing the kitchen floor so I guess this was a blessing in disguise!

I was still feeling snackie so I had a freshly baked blueberry muffin, another snack that was provided by Mom! I heated it in the microwave so the butter melted and the muffin tasted like it had just popped out of the oven.

Hopefully I can make it through the rest of the evening without losing any keys or making any messes.


  1. hope you made through the rest of the day smoothly with no bumps! ;-)
