The weekend weather made any outside activities a bust (unless you love it cold, windy, and rainy…) but we made it the perfect interior weekend despite the exterior conditions!
Saturday morning, we made our final visit of the season to our favorite farmer who will be heading back to Oaxaca, Mexico soon. The final farmer’s market is always a bitter-sweet experience but, we left with pie pumpkins, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, and lots of apples. My kitchen will be busy over the next week or two!
We then moved Swedish Death Cleaning to the basement and liberated some much-needed space and we also unearthed the exercise bike which the forecast is telling me was extremely necessary! I will need it after the eats and treats from the weekend along with the extremely sedentary activities of watching football, and knitting, with an extra ration of reading! Football watching was very good and the knitting was too! I knit a bit on Laura Aylor’s Sand Ripples and listened to What Happened.
The first half of Sunday was busy for me – this year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation! Which for me meant there was ringing and singing and lots and lots of joy!
The second half of Sunday had more football watching (for Steve) and more knitting and reading for me! However, it is easier to read and knit in the round than it is to read and knit and count rows so I spent a bit more time with Rusty on Sunday. (Pro-tip: large print books are EXCELLENT for knitting and reading!) At the end of the day I found myself with the body completed! All in all was an incredibly relaxed day and there was absolutely no time spent on making a list or planning for the week, so my Monday will be focused on that!
How about you? How was your weekend?
