Yummy Apple Cider with white powdered donuts! I also live close to Mayer Brothers Cider Mill and they have delicious Cider Slushies! I love baking apple pies, and giving them to all my family and friends. Going hiking every year at Letchworth…… The list could go on!

SB Sez: I have never had a cider slushie… I’ll have to put that on the list.

I’m about to help my daughter find a fancy dress outfit for her first halloween party as a teenager! I can’t wait. I think we are going with ‘Cruella de ville’.
And YAY for slipper socks! :o)

SB Sez: Cruella?!?! AWESOME!!! ebay rules for fancy dresses… I got mine last year at a thrift shop. (I was a 3rd alternate at a pagent.)

Apple Cider is a good one. Here are some others that I enjoy…

1. clementines are coming into season
2. watching parents stress out over Halloween
3. Super Dirt Week, a week of racing all around Syracuse

SB Sez: Thank you for playing along! I was starting to worry that you got lost in the fold. I love no.2 as well. I could spend an entire day in Target listening to teenagers that want to be “naughty” witches and kids that want to be superheros instead of a puppy. And no3? Um, yeah! Go Fast, Turn Left! (you know I kid)
