Wednesday Thoughts

Whew! Wednesday Thoughts is a bit late today. I've been a little under the weather lately. Here are some things going on with me lately:

1. I am horrible at ding-dong ditching. That's what I call it when you leave a gift on someone's porch then knock and run. It seems everyone has different names for it. This week I've been trying to "boo" some of my neighbors (leave some Halloween candy in a basket on their door with a fun note, and run). It has been impossible. Either they don't answer the door no matter how many times we knock, or they're outside in their garage. It reminded me of some other failed ding-dong ditching attempts I've made: 

*the time my friend and I went to the wrong house and saw a ghost
*the time we almost got attacked by dogs
*the time the person stepped onto the porch to make a phone call as we were sneaking up the front yard
*the time the neighbor stole the package before the person could find it (and we witnessed it)
*the time the person opened the front door to throw a bug out as I was crawling up the front steps (miraculously they did not see me)

2. I've been obsessively taking pictures of the bright, beautiful fall colors lately. I can't stop!! But can you blame me with views like this? 





3. I'm opening a booth at the farmers market soon, to sell baked goods. I'll just be there on Saturday mornings. I have NO idea what to expect but I am looking forward to it. What do you recommend I make? What sweets would you buy from the farmers market? 

Happy Wednesday!

I love those photos!! So beautiful!! I feel so enchanted driving around through these beautiful fall colors!!

Yeah, I stink at ding-dong ditching!! I pretty much make you do all of the work while I hide in the car or in the bushes. :D

Awesome about the farmers market! I would buy cinnamon rolls or sticky buns since they are harder to make myself. Oh, and maybe individual muffins or something like that if I skipped breakfast. It seems like a good idea to target both people who are hungry now and hungry later (bigger batches to go). Maybe have a few standards/signature items you always sell and a couple seasonal or special things that change. Like pumpkin cookies or bread right now.

Saw a pin for snickerdoodle/ pumpkin cookies. Breads and muffins. A few fruit pies. Oh gosh, I wish I were local. Amazing photos. I'd love to hear the details on some of your more interesting ding dong ditch adventures. Let me know how your booth goes!
