Free Cookbook!!

Gooseberry Patch sent me an email awhile back that was a survey. And those who fill out the survey would be placed in a random drawing. 

I was one of the random winners! So excited! It's one of the fall cookbooks, and let me tell ya, after all this heat and humidity this summer, I am read for FALL!!

The one problem....I can't wait to make some of the yummy recipes, but my kitchen just today was near 90 degrees. I am not turning my oven or stove on. Not at all.
I also need to go through the book, and this is my favorite part, make a grocery list and a recipe list and plan my meals. I love grocery shopping. I just hate being on a very fixed income. I could have so much fun in a grocery store with an endless amount of $$. I know...who wouldn't have fun with endless $$? haha!

Now, I am patiently waiting, well, not patiently, but waiting anyway, for the newest GBP cookbooks to arrive at our local gift shops. They say it will be next month or October. That seems like too long to me.

I've noticed some fall/autumn themed items showing up slowly at the farm markets. My friend Marge just made the cutest fall apron. It will be hard not to buy it! I've seen some really cute table runners that a lady made, several fall patterns from fall leaves to Halloween. I'm  hoping to remember my camera this Friday and Saturday to I can get some pictures! I'm always amazed at the unique and beautiful things that are made here locally!

Emily received her letter this last week from her Kindergarten teacher.  We go for a school visit on the 19th. Emily is able to take most of her school supplies on that morning, and we all get to meet her teacher and see the classroom. Emily is determined to ride the bus the first day, and she'll do fine, but will I????  We know her bus driver, in fact we go to church with his wife.  We went to Wal-Mart the other evening. She picked out her Tinker Bell back pack, which I was afraid would cost a bit, ended up it was on clearance for $3. She said she saw the red sticker on it and new it was on sale. That's my girl!! Bargain shopper from the get go!

I am off for now...we have a really busy week ahead! Tomorrow I'm off to Marietta for some diabetic lab work...I do hope the poor girl can get a vein this time..both of my arms were black and blue last time. Yikes!

Have a great week!

Good morning Renae,
Congrats on winning the cookbook! :o) I think alot of us are anxiously awaiting for cooler temps & of course, FALL. Emily must be so excited about K! Wm. rides a mini bus to school & a big bus home (he's the 1st one off.) I definitely shed some tears on his first day. After that, it gets easier. Good luck w/the bloodwork. Aaack.

Belated congrats on winning the cookbook, Renae! We can't wait to see what you'll cook up once the weather cools a little bit.

Can't wait to see those first day of school pictures of little Emily too! :)

Congratulations!! How awesome to win one of the cookbooks! I received one last year for placing a video of me with my favorite GBP item on their facebook page. It was so very hard to be in front of the camera because I am always the one behind it. It was very short (12 seconds.. haha!) and sweet! I love the fall and Christmas cookbooks.
