I found a wood burning tool and now I’m doodling on scrap wood. I should be finishing the painting I didn’t do last month and the pendant necklaces someone ordered but this is important.

Pumpkin Spice your own coffee

Just make this mixture and dissolve a spoon of it into your coffee drink whenever you want:

cook (stir on stove top for a few minutes until it smells cooked) 1 cup pureed or canned pumpkin with 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and 1 cup sugar. Refrigerate for up to 1 week and use as desired.


We’ve found that this mixture dissolves surprisingly well, especially considering all the pumpkin in it. It tastes fantastic and it’s not a bunch of artificial weirdness like what you get at Starbucks.

The creator of the original recipe (from thekitchn.com) that I swiped this from created a pumpkin spice latte recipe assuming you don’t have a cappuccino machine with a milk frothing device on it at home. We do, so what we do is slowly dissolve the espresso in the pumpkin mixture, and then add the frothy milk. But if you can’t do that, you can do what that recipe suggests and mix the pumpkin mixture in hot milk and use a hand blender or regular blender to mix and froth at the same time.

You’re welcome

Fudge recipe on a headstone

I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.

I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”

That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.

Oh yeah, I’ve heard Midwesterners are pretty bad about this too. And the thing I’ll never understand is how they expect everyone else to be football fans. I don’t tease people for not liking my stuff, you know? I’m not like “Whut?! You don’t like Star Trek?! WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?!!” But that’s how they act. And I also don’t get how football fans think they are saying anything that could be remotely construed as interesting by anyone else, when all they are doing is recounting exactly what they saw like a bunch of bad sports announcers. They’re like “DID YOU SEE GUY DO THING WITH BALL?!” “YES! HE DID THING WITH BALL!!!” “YEAH AND THEN HE DID RUNNING THING!!!” [All in unison]: “RUNNING THING! YEAAAAAH!! WHOO HOOO! THAT WAS GREAT!” At least the stuff I enjoy has enough content for some nuanced, thoughtful discussion. Sorry, not sorry. I just have more sports fan friends than ever this year and I have to blow off steam…

Trying not to be a jerk

Apparently we’ve entered into some kind of sports season and my FB feed is flooded with sentence fragments from people live blogging their enthusiasm over watching something excessively boring. I hate sports so much, you have no idea. Part of it comes from the treatment I got from football players in high school. And part of it is because football especially is such a religion in the south and people act like mindless twits over it. But a lot of it stems from the fact that it reminds me how different I am from most people around me and that my interests will always be devalued. And how I am expected to be open minded and listen to people blather on about the stupid thing they idolize but as soon as I try to talk about something that interests me, I get ignored or teased for being odd or just a geek. So the listening doesn’t go two ways. And it’s hard not to fire back with jabs about sports fans. I usually get in one jab on FB just because I get tired of not being able to enjoy the site. But this time I think I’ll just stop spending much time on the site until this nonsense is over. I really don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
