Little Bliss List - Nice Weather

1. Perhaps we will have an Indian Summer - warm days and cool evenings. I'll keep my fingers crossed; anything to keep the storms at bay and the barometer steady.

2. I made a very tasty rhubarb and pineapple pie - a first.  I probably would not have tried it with pineapple but that is what I had available in the pantry. I am not a pie maker and I learned from just making one.

3. I made eight miniature Spelt loafs and one regular loaf of Spelt bread.  Not bad for a first - I ran out of Spelt flour so I added a cup of tapioca flour and 1/2 cup of oatmeal. It actually rose and tasted every bit as good as what I usually buy at the grocery store.

4. I sold one pair of light purple jade earrings since I returned home and have one special earring order to fill. I was sad to sell my purple jade earrings because I was secretly thinking I might keep them for myself.  Oh well, I'll see what I can find at the gem show this weekend.
5. In the last week in California we have many adventures together and took a walk along the bike/walking trail along the ocean.

I enjoy connecting with Liv Lane's Little Bliss List on Friday. Hop on over and take a look.

I was hoping for an Indian summer too, but bad weather has hit here. It's so cold at the moment, I'm thinking of putting the heating on, and it's so windy too.

Your jewelry is gorgeous! Stopping by from the Bliss List as well. Thanks for the visit to my site, Ruth.

How cool that you found your Grandfather. No wonder you had a hard time if he changed his name! You are like a super spy! That is awesome.
