Fragrance-Burberry Classic (Mr. ETB generously bought me a gigantic bottle at Marshall's and I have fallen in love with it again. It has been reformulated a bit, but that peach/sandalwood/moss mix is still lovely).
These photos weren't taken at the NRD, but instead behind our home. Blazingly sunny autumn days are lovely, but it does pose a challenge to the not very good camera on my cheap phone. We ducked into the shade for a few quick snaps.

These are a one-rise bread similar to the French-Style bread in the Beard on Bread cookbook. I tweaked it a bit by adding wholemeal flour and a bit of olive oil. It is a good, sturdy bread to serve with soup, but it goes stale quickly. We froze the second loaf and had it later in the week. Shaping bread isn't my best skill. I should have had the State Fair champion do it.
The squirrel has been eating well. He likes almonds in the shell. At $4.99 a lb. I sort of balk at the idea of feeding the squirrel almonds, but once Danny started there was no going back. He also likes apple slices. That's one seriously health minded squirrel. I think he's eating a peanut in this photo. Not shown-squirrel throwing himself against the sliding glass door and refusing to move until he gets food. I think we know who is "Trained" here. Hint-it isn't the squirrel.
|Squirrel lady?! Great, that's just great. Be sure to put that in my obituary when I go.|
Sequin mini skirt-Goodwill
Betsey Johnson handbag-Hand-Me-Ups
Staying with minis for a moment-this home-sewn 70s corduroy set was a fun find.
I absolutely would have worn the earrings and necklace though. Big earrings have been my "Look" for as long as I can remember.

Earrings-Costume shop (sold for a fortune-teller's costume)
I will leave you with another photo where I appear to be judging you. I'm not! OK, sometimes I am, but not in any general sort of way. I don't know why I always look this way in photos. *shrug*
The scarf I'm wearing came from the Omaha Weavers and Spinners Guild annual fiber arts show last year. This year's show is tomorrow-17 November at the Westside community center from 9-4. Shop for wonderful things and support local artisans. Every year I treat my feet to alpaca socks. If you find yourself in Omaha tomorrow, I promise you won't be sorry if a pair of those socks go home with you.
Have a great weekend everyone.
