Afternoon DIY

Searching for a place to hang my necklaces, hats and scarfs I decided to pull out the creative genius in me and go to town.  I came up with an accessory clothes line made out of materials I have around my apartment,  2 eyes screws, wire and clothes pins.  Voila!

Now I need to figure out how to fix the leak in our bathroom ceiling but I think that is going to take a professional.

Fall Adventure

Today I took the train up-state to see the fall foliage and to go to the orchard with my roommate. What a breath taking day it was. not only did we pick apples but also found pears, grapes, and tomatoes.

I think my favorite part of the day was seeing the view of the Hudson river from my train window. I took my knitting with to keep my hands busy and listened to my Pandora Washed Out radio station. It was a perfect soundtrack to the trip.

It was such a wonderful day, I am hoping that I get to take another trip before fall is over. In the meantime I will watch this video over and over again and pretend that I am in France or just up-state.

Kitchen Tips: How to Peel a Garlic Clove

Tonight I made garlic mashed potatoes from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and peeled each garlic glove one by one. Really wished I would have seen this video sooner!
