"Fall is my favorite", says everyone posing on a mountain top during peak foliage....
But really, it's my favorite ;)
We hiked the easiest and shortest Vermont hike ever. Owls Head in Peacham. Four minutes from the parking area to the top. Perfect for this postpartum mother, who hasn't exercised or left the house if not absolutely necessary in a year and nine months.
Tilly and I did get out and about at our local walking path for some leaf-peeping....
I talked on Instagram about my attempt at making dilly-beans. At first, I couldn't find fresh dill; I checked all the local grocery stores. Come to find out, dill is sold in plastic packaging, like, cherry tomatoes or something. I was looking for a bundle of dill. My local grocery store sells parsley, cilantro, mint, basil, thyme, etc... in bundles in the produce aisle. How is it not confusing to anyone else that dill is sold in a plastic container near the lettuce, not near any of those other herbs?? WTF?
So, you know what I did then? I bought my own friggin dill plant! .....and it died a week later.
As usual, I went overboard with the faux flowers and color scheme in my decor....
The DIY Sectional Sofa got a fall makeover!
I couldn't leave the fireplace out of the tacky faux-flower-fun. (say that 5 times fast. LOL!)
Side note: Am I reminding anyone else of the old lady with all the cats and dusty sun-bleached faux flowers???
Yeah, me neither ;)
The dilly-beans were a total fail, by the way. No bite to them at all. Was I supposed to blanch them first? Were they grown too long? The beans inside were completely formed :(
Anyway, until next time.
YOU'LL LOVE THESE TOO!
