I don’t know about you but I felt like the weekend flew by!

I enjoyed the beautiful weather, a trip to Whole Foods, studying with a friend, and a huge stack of Anatomy and Physiology notecards (riveting stuff).

I spent a lot of time outside, running and cycling.  I actually come and go from my house so often that my mother has begun joking about making me sign a Guest Book.  :/

While I did not post yesterday, there was a lot happening over here at Weights and Measures. I’ve been working on becoming self hosted all weekend long. (by I, I mean I did what I could and then wisely I turned it over into trustworthy hands when it became too technical for me.  Thanks Scott!  You deserve much more than the dinner of Thai food that I paid you with.  Though it was really good Thai food.)

While the site is not completely finished (then again, no blog is ever completely finished), it’s getting there. In the mean time, please check out my giveaway of a $5 Starbucks gift card if you are the first person to tweet me (@danikracht) a picture of the signage for Honeycrisp apples at your local store.

Check the rules out on my previous post.

In the mean time, have an incredible Monday!


(Updated to add… hopefully your office does not smell like rotten eggs due to some weird water heater issue.  Please send vanilla candles, or cinnamon, or better yet coffee.)


Hunting for Apples (A Giveaway)

10 Sep

Good morning all!

Good morning fall!

Good morning cinnamon carrot buckwheat bake and decaf pumpkin spice latte with soy milk.

Good morning grungy old boots with scuffs.  My toes are ready to be covered (read, I’m tired of painting my toe nails.)

Good morning light cardigan, my faithful companion.  I have missed your comforting warmth.

Good morning colorful scarf.  You brighten my outfit and my day.

Good morning perfect running weather.  You motivate me out the door.

I hear that the warm temperatures are to return, but I have truly enjoyed the cooler temperatures of the last week.

Fall is my favorite season, and I am ready for fall and all that it entails…

cinnamon spiced foods

outdoor walks

changing of leaves

The State Fair (19 days!)

Christmas shopping

Honeycrisp apples

I am officially on Honeycrisp apple watch!

I went so far as to call both Central Market and Whole Foods yesterday.

They both agree that the apples will be stocked the last week of September.

 That is also when the fair begins, so I have a lot to look forward to.

BUT! Can I wait that long?

Can you wait that long?

I’m feeling motivated and generous today, so in honor of all that is fall…


The first person to tweet me (@danikracht) a picture of the signage for honeycrisp apples at their grocer or farmer’s market will be getting a $5 Starbucks gift card from me in the mail to enjoy their own fall in a cup Pumpkin Spice Latte!  

Here are the rules:

1. The picture must show the actual “Honeycrisp Apple” sign

2. Sorry, but only readers in the continental US are eligible.

3. You must be following me on Twitter to be eligible to win.

So get your camo out and go hunting for some apples!

Happy Hunting!

And, if you are in DFW, we may just need to enjoy a honeycrisp together…)
