Ep. 33- You Know It's Autumn When...

~Welcome/ Intro / Thanks!
Audible is giving my lovely listeners (that's you!) a free audiobook and a free 2 week trial!  Check it out for a free download!
   -September's Prize donation has come from Bar Maids! Yes, the lovely ladies are back and are donating their LoLo Travel Pack! This includes a Lo-Lo to go bar, (small and fits well inside a knitting bag) a Lo-Lo Lips (amazing chapstick) and their new product, the Cuticle Intesnsive! (So nice and smells great!)  If you want to win, send me a recipe for apples!  Visit the Ravelry Group and enter your best apple recipe!  I love apples and I want your recipes!
~Contest Winners from last month:
Listen to hear if you've won!
~ Knitting and Weaving!!
   I've finished Aaron's cabled socks and he is thoroughly enjoying them!  I've also started a new pair for myself out of some Dream in Color Smooshy that I picked up at Little Knits a few months ago on sale!  Yay!  I've done a bit of work on my simple knitted bodice, and I've also been weaving on my new loom!  I love it!  It is super duper fun and really easy! YaY!
~Free Entertainment:
I've been listening to The Well Knitted Life on the Knitmores' suggestion, and I am enjoying it!  Sadly, this segment might disappear because I am no longer allowed to listen to headphones at work, and since this was 90% of my listening time, I'm going to have a hard time keeping up with all my favorite podcasts as it is! I hope you'll all share your new free entertainment you find on the Ravelry group!
We harvested almost 48 pounds of green tomatoes!  Kim from the Crooked Row podcast mentioned that if your tomatoes get too much water, they will split and rot.  It rains a lot here and we didn't want that to happen so we picked them! We are storing them in paper bags and cardboard boxes and they are starting to ripen off the vine!  We will definitely be canning and freezing loads of tomatoes!
I was a little bit lazy, I really wanted to talk to you guys but I didn't feel like doing homework so the big sales I've noticed in stores are summer stuff and Halloween!  Go get stuff!
~ Tip of the Week:
  Priorities: Save FOR something.  Whether it is the down payment on a house or a new ball of cashmere, if you have a specific goal you are saving for, it will be a lot easier to pass up those impulse buys because you know it will negatively affect your ability to buy something you really want!
~ DIY:
Apples in the fire!  Core out your favorite variety of apple (I like fuji and pink lady), wrap it partly in aluminum foil, fill the cored out space with a little butter and loads of sugar and cinnamon (or cloves, orange peel, ginger, whatever you think would be tasty) and wrap it up in the foil.  Either throw the apple into a fire for 20 minutes or bake it at 350 for about 45 minutes!  A tasty, inexpensive and (mostly) healthy snack or dessert!  
~Worth It!
Retail: $24.99, I got it on Amazon for $18!  Use a coupon!  
Awesome book on making natural household products like body washes, face creams, cough drops and flea treatments!  I love this book and I can't wait to tell you more about the awesome things I make out of it!
Totally worth it!
