Today I worked on the stairs. The plan is to strip the paint and stain the treads. I'll need to strip the floor too. 

Inspiration. 




This is how it looks currently. I got a heat gun recently and wish I had used it when I had started this project. More time consuming but less messy than using paint stripper.

I had bought a few mums but they weren't flowering so I had to get more for the front steps. Also I liked the green pumpkins. :)
I found this plastic pumpkin at the dump. Peter told me I shouldn't bring home trash from the dump but I don't care. I put a solar light in it to try to light it up at night. 
My Mum made this years ago. It's hanging on the door we use and it's one of my favorite decorations.

It had been a while so I went for a walk in the city forest. I love when the leaves change color.

Today I went to the Common Ground Fair in Unity, ME. It's a country fair. I bought seeds, bulbs and pumpkins. :) I also had to get some piecone (pie in a cone).

I've been trying canning. Tonight I attempted dilly beans. Who knows if they will come out ok. I used beans and dill from the garden.

Today we went to Treworgy Orchard and had fun doing the corn maze. I love going every year. We will have to go back and pick a pumpkin.

Isn't my niece adorable?




This weekend we visited the Desert of Maine. Yes we have a desert here and it naturally occurred. It may have been though because of potato farming and sheep but still cool to see.

I got to hang out with my family today. It was awesome. :)

I made breakfast this morning. I found scrapple at my local grocery store so I had to try it. I'm not sure if I cooked it how it's normally prepared but it was good. Even my boyfriend ate it. I can cross it off my life list. I had heard about it years ago and wanted to try it.

Today we went to Boothbay Harbor for a lobster/clam bake that my boyfriend's work was having. We went on a ferry and ate lobster at Cabbage island.

I walked down on the rocks despite wearing a skirt.
