I am cold. I just want to sit and huddle and think about being cold. But I've got to get things done. I've gotta host a party tomorrow! We made it just a Friday night dessert family party to keep it short because this crowd gets antsy quick. They don't like to linger in our wee house. Mat's brothers are very tall and always in a hurry to go somewhere else to drink beer. Or something.

I'm going on a neat date! A one man production of Frankenstein in the Mütter Museum! It is going to be amazing no matter what becuase we'll see parts of the museum I haven't been to before. Also because it's a date.

Favorite doll

So, this wee thing, Baby soldier Gaikochu, is my new favorite thing ever. He is made in super small runs so I have been stalking the seller on IG and was able to score both a glow in the dark(!!) one and a cream one. (I ordered him on my Birthday! He arrived on xmas eve!) I lightly customized my GID one to look more like Lemon and the pair of them make me very happy. I think his name is Basil. I do sort of want other colors now though. I also need to take more pictures of my dollhouse...

[livejournal.com profile] bleodswean We also now have 4 pose skeletons and the dog and the coffin set. XD I want to dress them and let them live in the monster house.  Some might have to be servants. I have a problem. (skeleton doll hoarders anonymous)

I hope you are well. What's for dinner?? I should put something in the crock pot but I don't want to go shopping. It feels like -5 out there.

Momentum is a good thing.

We didn't get to see Box Trolls last weekend, but that's because we went shopping and visited friends and then went apple picking. Movies can wait.
We went to an amazing local shop to get things for our Day of the Dead party. Eye's Gallery is a South St. staple and owned by the local mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar and his wife. It is totally covered with art and absolutely filled to the brim with neat stuff. We got some papel picado banners and big sugar skull molds. I already got paper mache skulls and masks from the craft store to paint, so I actually think we have everything we need. We also went to a new orchard for apples and really liked it. They only have apples, so it was nice to not be overrun with pumpkins/pumpkin picking. We have a lot of apples. But we also have one of these so the kids make short work of them. They can and do eat whole apples with the skin, but when you offer someone an apple spiral, it is literally impossible for them to resist. They also get to have snacks in class, so I find them to be much easier to eat without drip/mess/core garbage. I also have some recipes planned.

Speaking of, I'm trying to change the way we eat. I don't think our habits are too terrible, but there's lots of room to rethink and improve and I've started using the All Recipes app and I love it. Our problem is that neither of us really love to cook and we both hate shopping, so often we put off deciding on meals till mid day and Mat  buy things on his walk home from work. That doesn't inspire creativity. I've found that I do much better when I have a good stock of ingredients and I can make the decision to try something new with things we already have. That's where the app helps -- I can search for recipes and then save them and it even has a grocery list option, so it makes it easy to keep track of what we do need. We also have a farm share, so that helps force us to try new things also. If I plan a bit ahead but leave room to try new stuff, I find I like cooking much better and can manage our busy after school/work time much better. I need to tackle breakfast next. I think I want to try some oatmeal bar recipes to have a quick grab option for the boys instead of cereal. Hot breakfasts will take more work... mornings are hectic here.

I've been trying to take a Halloweeny picture every day, but haven't quite succeeded. I've decided I'm ok with that. As much as I love October, I'm trying to keep this one low stress. So far, so good. I even redressed some dolls! Future pictures...

I totally missed my photo post last week, which is lame. I will make up for it by posting twice this week!

This is Patsy Batsy, a teeny tiny resin figure made by the incredibly awesome Paul Kaiju.

Patsy Batsy!

This is Patsy Batsy after spending the afternoon with me.
