5 Nov

I received some tomato seedlings back in July and had been diligently watering them daily for the first month or so. I was told that the plants might not even fruit due to their belated planting, but I continued to take care of them. Then things got busy and I watered only every few days or when I’d remember.

This morning I looked out onto the balcony for the first time in a while, and was surprised to find…

…my first tomato!! Though the Autumn chill has set in, this little guy managed to grow (though not as big as the smile that’s currently on my face :))

Ghost Lollies

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I had ambitious plans to make festive cake pops for All Hallow’s Eve but majorly failed, so instead I put together some ghost lollies. I first made these little guys back in elementary school, and they are a cinch to assemble. All you need are lollipops (I used Tootsie Pops for these), tissue (one per ghost), some ribbon or tape, and a marker to make the face. Center and wrap a tissue over the top of the lollipop, then tape or tie a ribbon just below the head. Using a marker, draw eyes and a mouth. And that’s it – something cute, yet simple and festive!

Lastly, here are some cupcakes I helped frost and decorate the other night; had fun with these : )
