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?
I didn’t know it is the 500th anniversary ! Wow. Im sure there will be many lovely celebrations!
Weekend for me: Saturday gloomy and quiet mood. Sunday sunny and cheerful mood. Bought some new yarn Sunday!!! Baseball, saving the goodness of the game to the last pitches this week!
We had a lovely weekend and cool, crisp weather but the forecast is not so good after today so indoor exercise options are a must!
With Rusty and apples, it really looks like fall here on your blog! We’ve got 50 mph winds and torrential rain, so indoor exercise is also necessary here. If only knitting and reading were aerobic!
It was definitely the perfect weekend for staying inside. I did a ton of spinning, finally finished my 1,100+-page book, and did a bunch of cooking.
I grew up Lutheran in a family of Lutherans and Catholics. I have been Roman Catholic for several years, but my sister & her family are still Lutheran. My brother-in-law is the organist and choir director at their church and they had a big celebration this weekend. Happy 500th!
That book in the photo is on my nightstand, too. Looking forward to it after I finish The Snowman and the book for my book group (that one is a tough go for me). As always, your knitting photos are superior! Close-ups ftw!
Your weekend produced a busy week of inside activity. Good thing the weather cooperated. 🙂
Sounds like a great weekend to me!
What a lovely basket of apples. Our weather has turned much colder, so the house has been buttoned up!
Oh my, you DO have an abundance of apples!! (I only used six, though, for that double recipe – not sure using 3 would make much of a dent in your haul). We celebrated Reformation Sunday AND All Saints Day yesterday (along with communion and a baptism). All the things I love best about church!
I can’t wait to read that article you linked! (Catholic since 1959) sounds like a great weekend to me! I went to the grocery store at 7:30 am Sunday and spent the rest of the day inside…it was glorious!
Cold-and-wet kept me inside over the weekend, too. But I didn’t knit much. . . I’ve got some death-cleaning of my own going on! XO
sad that your farmer is leaving but my those apples look glorious. when there is any sport on tv I am knitting away and passively listening.
