A New Look

I have finally found some time to give my blog a little face lift for the winter season. I LOVE this blog in a box by Zoe Pearn. What do you think? Now if I could only figure out why my separators aren't working. :S

FOBTY - 29 October 2009 Favorite Candy

My favorite candy is caramel, just plain old caramel. I like other candy too, don't get me wrong, but there is just something about the taste of caramel that I love.

FOBTY - 22 October 2009 Autumn Sense

Your Autumn Sense is Sight

You are a keen appreciator of beauty, and you believe there is no more beautiful season than the fall.

Like everyone else, you love the sight of changing leaves. However, unlike everyone else, you notice every color, shape, and pattern.

You love people watching in the fall. Whether you're checking out fall fashions or Halloween costumes, you like to see people dressing for the season.

Whether you're in the city or the country, this time of year gives you plenty to look at.

Home Alone and Layouts

Well, it's no secret that Arjan has been working in the UK for a few months now, but he's always been home on the weekends. Well, not this weekend because he has to work. I've known it was coming for about a month, but it really just hit me last night as I put the normal Thursday night load of laundry in. He's really not going to be home...no cuddles, no snuggles, no breakfast, lunch or dinners together. Nothing! I always miss him when he is gone, but I'll be missing him a little bit extra this weekend.

I hope his weekend project goes very smoothly and he will get a bit of time to do something fun this weekend too.

I usually show him all my layouts from the week when he gets home, but I'll put them here for him so he can go have a look.

FOBTY - October 15th Christmas Shopping

Every year I say that I'm going to get all my yule preparations started early, but every year it's the same thing. Good intentions don't always make things happen and the gift shoppng usually gets done around the 15th of December. Somehow I don't think this year will be any different. :)

FOBTY - 8 October 2009 What Pumpkin Treat Are You?

Mostly accurate except they notice every change of season and look forward to the fall the most and I'm definitely not more calm in the fall. It's one of the busiest times of the year for me.

You Are Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

You are serious and dedicated. You are a quiet person, and you're often lost in your own pursuits.

To be honest, you sometimes hardly notice the changing of the seasons... except that you feel a little more calm in the fall.

As the days get shorter, the nights get longer. And there's nothing you like more than a quiet night at home.

And you believe a cold, rainy day is the perfect excuse to stay home all day and enjoy the quiet. Not that you need an excuse!

New Sofa

I just ordered a new sofa and it will be delivered next Tuesday, but the catch is that it isn't for us. Nikita, our wolf-hybrid, is getting a sofa of her own. Isn't it just cutest thing ever? Nikita either spends her time on the sofa with us, on the hard floor in the living room or upstairs on the landing, we'd been thinking about getting her a dog bed of her own. When I saw the hondenbank (dog sofa) in the new Wehkamp catalogue today I knew this would be perfect for her. We are planning on getting a new one for ourselves later in the year, and this one matches the one we've picked out perfectly. I just couldn't pass it up and immediately called Arjan in the UK to get his agreement on purchasing this for her.
