A Cleaning Kind of Day

This morning I made Scott and I breakfast. Oatmeal with craisins. 
As you know its never sweet enough for Scott. We have breakfast together quickly before he heads off to work.
Were kind of frugal and like a few other American's we don't turn our heat on until after Halloween. Our house has been in the 50's the past couple of weeks. 
 It's not that bad during the day, but at night it gets a little chilly. This is how many layers of blankets we have on our bed. One. 
2 3 4

And 6. 
Scott said he'd do the dishes yesterday. Of course he didn't so I was left to do them.
Done. 
We still have the plates we used at our wedding sitting on our dining room table. We had plans to keep some and sell the rest. We couldn't decide which ones to part with so we decided to keep them all. The only thing was I needed to find room to store them all. 
 I took everything out of our built-ins to do some reorganizing. Most people do deep cleaning in the spring, but I like to …

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.
Scott added granola to his oatmeal. 
The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.
Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof. 
Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing.
During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him.
Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale.
We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
Brussel sprouts on the stalk. How cool!
Pumpkins for carvin…
