Baking Pies

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US so it's time to bake those pies. There is only so much room in the oven with the big ol' turkey in there. So today Livy and I went on a pie baking mission at my house while her mom cleaned theirs. First up was making the crust. This is not as fun as I had thought. In fact it took me more than one try to get the crust right. I am new at this crust from scratch thing. I did have quite the adorable helper.

After baking the pies we needed for tomorrow we decided to use the leftover crust dough and filling to make little hand pies. I should have known not to turn my back on a little trouble maker...

Mini pie thief

That little Thanksgiving turkey stole one of the mini pies and tried to run away from me! Oh well her mom will have to deal with a messy sugar monster tonight and not me. I am such a loving sister!

Fresh Ingredients

Thanksgiving is Thursday here in the US so it's time to get ready for the food! This past weekend I went to get apples and pumpkins for our pies. I decided to take Livy with me for some auntie-niece bonding time. Well her mom may have begged me to take her with me to get some alone time for a few hours. Who am I to say no to a desperate sister? Our first stop was the pumpkin patch.
Pumpkin Picking

We found the the right sized pumpkins to whip up a tasty pumpkin pie from scratch. After that we had to make a quick stop at home to change. I hadn't anticipated the muddiness of the pumpkin patch before we left and our clothes were a mess! Our next stop was the orchard to pick some apples for apple pie, and of course some for eating too.
Apple Picking

We had great fun at the orchard. Livy liked that I let her climb a ladder, carefully supervised of course. I am not that irresponsible, most days. After we finished picking a big bucket full of apples it was time to head home. Livy told me she has a secret to tell me before we left. She told me she found a big wriggling worm in an apple. I was not nearly as enthused about this as she was. Lucky for me she fell asleep on the way home so I didn't have to hear more of her wormy apple tales. Tomorrow we get to work on making those pies.

Updated PDA

New PDA

No more planners, multiple cell phones and such for this boss. Ho no she now has the latest and greatest in Personal Data Assistants. Sure she may be bigger and more colorful, but trust me she makes work a whole lot easier. It's nice having an employee with all ten digits that requires no salary. She doesn't need to carry around a planner for me, but she does it for aesthetic reasons. Well enough of my talking up my new PDA, there is work to be done after all.

Storytime

Storytime


My dragon friends love it when I read them stories. I try to make sure the stories all have dragons, but not terrible knight who go around killing dragons. Stupid knights don't know what they are doing! All because one dragon once went a little crazy and terrorized a village now all dragons are bad. Hrumf I say. The Dragon Queen, also known as my mom, watches out for all the in our land. I get to play with all the little whelps. They are too adorable for words! That little one who is trying to read over my shoulder is always following me around. I think it may be because our wings are the same color.

Quiet Corner for Coffee

Coffee

I love grabbing a cup of coffee and finding a quiet spot to just chill out in and have a moment to myself. Moments alone are very rare and I jump on them any chance I get! I am also a somewhat terrible person because I will listen to things other people are talking about, like where to get the best chicken and waffles near my house. I do this in Second Life as well. Only it's more socially acceptable when it is talked about in a group you are in. For instance these pictures were taken at Whole Wheat, which I had never heard of till it was mentioned as a place for fall pictures.

They have different scenes all set up there, like the coffee house which is where I chose for my pictures. It is really worth checking out as they are always adding to it.

Quiet corner for me

I had to add this picture so you could see the adorableness of my face. It makes me look all sweet and approachable...it lies.

Binge Watching

I know I am not alone in having a show or twelve that I will happily binge watch. While I try to keep my late night binging to a minimum sometimes you just can't stop watching. This is when good battery life can come in handy.

Binge Watching

Sometimes you don't want to admit to something you may have binge watched, for instance, the first three Jaws movies.Hey the first is a classic and well the other two just sorta followed, don't judge. We all have binge skeletons in our closets. We stay up till all hours and before we know it the movie,season or series ends.

That's the season finale?!?!?

There are times when the endings are all we hoped for, they are the best. Then there are endings that leave you going WTF! I'm looking at you Sopranos! However you feel at the end of a binge session is just one of those things you won't know about until after you do it. So go forth my friends and binge. Oh and tell me what you are binging on because I am always use more stuff to watch.

The Burdy Sisters - Raven

Finally we come to Raven, the last of the Burdy triplets, and maybe the most...interesting? You see Raven had obsession with death and dead things. She would even sneak out at night to meet with her unkindness, her flock of ravens.
Raven I

No one was ever certain whether she had trained the raven to come to her or if they just naturally saw her as their queen of some sort. It did disturb the other people living on the island whenever they would see the ravens circling here. They also feared the ravens themselves for it seemed that anyone who witnessed Raven in the evenings would be found dead within a week. No one believed this to be a mere coincidence.

Raven II

Due to the deaths that surrounded seeing Raven at night many of the island dwellers made sure to be locked up tight in their homes before the dark of night descended. No one wanted to risk being the next one to be at the wrong end of the Raven Curse.
