5 thing Friday - firepit, breakfast, doe, Halloween, cookie jar

Last weekend Hubby and I crossed another "to do" off our list for Highlands - ordering the sign.  We inherited a really beautiful cast iron sign from my mother.  All it needed was a new plate underneath that says "Highlands".  It will also feature a triquetra on either side of the name.  I will post a pic of it when we get it installed!  We will take the bit that says "Parry's Pond" back to my mother and maybe hang it on her garage - it has great sentimental value.
Meanwhile, we are eyeballing the giant firepit you see in the middle of the above photo at the same place we are getting the sign done.  Large enough for the whole Cannary clan to sit around - and then some.
 Weekend breakfasts don't have to be fancy - sometimes they are leftovers, topped with a fried egg, a fritter from a favorite donut place in Bertram, and eaten off a paper plate, in the barn...
 I spy with my little eye, a very inquisitive doe as I was finishing up my coffee outside...
Sunday dinners in the dining room are still a thing!  This last one was a celebration for Scout's birthday.  We had turkey chili, cornbread muffins, and an Oreo ice cream cake.  Its nice to get to see him, if only once a week.
His birthday is Halloween - it isn't the same at my house without four kids dressed up and pouring their candy in piles on the floor for trades.  These days it's usually just me and Hubby, sitting outside with his guitar entertaining the trick-or-treaters, having a glass of wine and eating pizza.  This year we skipped the wine as I am battling a wicked upper respiratory infection.  Fall is off to a poopy start.
This cookie jar has been in my possession since my MIL passed.  I accidentally broke the lid years ago and did a poor job re-gluing it.  Then two weeks ago, Hubby and I stopped at an antiques store in Llano and what did I find at theveryback of the store?  A LID THAT MATCHES PERFECTLY sitting by itself on a shelf with a $4 price tag, calling my name.  What are the odds?!  Marie is smiling from heaven.

That fire pit is FABULOUS!! I would love one of those, but fear setting the place ablaze. Love the cookie jar. Little treasures like that are great to have.
