REDNESDAY



Welcome back, boys and girls! I picked up some Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch today (Tues.), as it was Mister's day off. I'm eating coleslaw out of the container because no one else like it - yay!

Last week, on a day off from school, I took Jade (whom I babysit) and Christa (my niece) to The Big Apple, which is a local apple orchard. Got the usual - apple donuts, caramel apples, maple sugar candy, pumpkins and apples!


This is an old-fashioned apple vending machine. Empty, but still works!

The ice cream window wasn't open because we were there in the morning, but they have a nice selection of New England sundaes!

I managed to hit the thrift store twice this past week. My first time I brought home this darling little girl! She's a planter, but I'll use her for pens and stuff.

Today I went there with Mister and picked up some Christmas items. A small red tin, two fingertip towels, and a cute little angel.

I fell in love with this vintage basket as soon as I saw it; it's like a mini picnic basket! It measures 11" long, 6" deep, and 6-1/2" tall. There was no price sticker on it so when I asked the guy about it he said $3.00. Later, a woman who works there said she remembers a $10 price had been on it - I lucked out! A pretty Christmas rose cloth napkin came home also.

I guess that's enough for one week! Can't wait to see all yours!

You were lucky having two great days out. One with the young girls at the Big Apple and than sharing fun time with your husband. I like all your goodies.

I'm so happy to see that apple vending machine! My JR high had one and I would eat one every day for lunch! I've always thought that was such a great idea but have never seen one since!

Happy Rednesday! great score on the picKinic basket, Yogi! :)

apple vending machine, how often do they replenish them? You buy the honey crisps? USA is importing them from NZ.
