Ten on Ten in Twenty-Ten: October

At the end of every weekend, I have a "take to work" pile by the door... I scored that little stack of books on the top at a recent book sale, and they are going in the mail to a sweet friend whose son who is a building enthusiast!

This tower (which I found on the side of the road) is great for holding part of my yarn stash. And I love that old sewing machine... just can't bring myself to get rid of it.

Looking for the perfect yarn...

This is one of my favorite features in our house: a little cabinet in the kitchen. It's perfect for tea and coffee, and it has that cute little shelf underneath! There isn't usually money on that shelf, just so you know.

Isn't this little toy TV the cutest? It's normal to have random kids' toys as decorations, right? Especially when you don't have any kids...

Just a little meal planning... I'm in love with cookbooks.

This is seriously how my husband charges his phone.

A batch of Andi's Great Pumpkin Cookies (and accompanying glass of apple cider). Yum!

A peek into the oven: pumpkin cookies baking, sweet potato burrito filling roasting. I was totally proud because I made sixteen burritos, and I froze 14 of them for easy dinners later on.

We had to sample them for dinner, though! Slow cooker full of potato-leek soup in the background.

Can you believe I cooked all of that in one day? Sweet potato burritos (thank goodness for the pressure cooker for dry beans), pumpkin cookies, and potato-leek soup... plus I chopped up a squash for a recipe I'm making on Tuesday night. The recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens, which makes me feel even more wife-ish and awesome... no offense to you women's libbers out there. I'm one of you, really I am. Oh and also I went to work for six hours. Take that, Martha Stewart!

On an unrelated note, congratulations to Erin, who won the Whole Lotta Give-Away! Erin, your cards will be in the mail this week!

Happy Ten-Ten-Ten!
