Not much making this week! I might have knit less than 8 rows on Close To You and that is alright with me! Instead I have been spending as many hours as possible outside in Presque Isle! It has been simply amazing… sunny, clear skies, and warm! We have a bit of rain in the forecast today but that is okay because that means I might get a bit a knitting time! Haha!
I do have a rather fun update from my daughter to share. Every year the halloween costumes are so fun, but this year was especially so!
Meet Little Red Riding Hood, dear grandma, and the Big Bad Wolf! I laughed so hard at this one! Well done, Heidi!
This was the week that I realized that I am indeed a painter! Why you ask? Well because I brought (almost) everything I needed to do my “weekly watercolor homework” and spent a bit of time Sunday afternoon getting it done! Yes, I planned painting time and have done virtually no knitting!
Thanks to my AirPods, I have done some reading this week! Currently, I am stealing moments to read Jussi Adler-Olsen’s latest book, The Shadow Murders. So.Good! I really enjoy the Department Q Team, headed up by my beloved Carl Mørck. It is Scandinavian Noir at its best!
And with that, I am getting back to my out-of-doors enjoyment that is Presque Isle. See you all back here next Monday with my Word Update!
As always, if you wrote a post to share please leave your link below and thank you!
You have had such a perfect week for your trip to Presque Isle, Kat! The weather has been made-to-order, and everything looks just glorious. XO I think it’s good to have a break from “the usual pursuits” (like knitting) now and then. . . You are a real trouper, though, for packing in all your painting stuff. (I’m famous for doing that . . . but never using it. 😉
(Also, the Halloween costumes are so wonderful . . . and ViVi looks so much like Little Kat! XO)
I love seeing your sights on Presque Isle, so thank you for sharing and taking the time to write an Unraveled Wednesday post. Congratulations to you for realizing you are a painter and to Heidi for the best Halloween costumes! Enjoy your remaining vacation time!
Those Halloween costumes are WONDERFUL!! ViVi is so adorable. And your painting – WOW!!!! Love this one Kat. I’ve been following your vacation adventures on IG (I don’t comment) and it looks like the weather could not be any better. So glad you are relaxing and having fun!
These kiddos win Halloween! Kudos to the horse for tolerating the curlers, too. From what you’ve been posting on IG (at least that I’ve seen — it has not been cooperating with me lately), it looks like you’re having a fabulous time, and your watercolor is stunning. I imagine it’s nearly impossible to see everything you’ve been seeing and not be inspired.
your grandchildren are super adorable!! I hope you had a great getaway, you were missed 🙂
Oh MY WORD —– GRANDMA!!!!! That is fantastic.
(Of course, it brought back the horrific feeling of sleeping in those rollers in the 60s, but in an oh-so-funny way!)
Enjoy your vacation.
I’m so glad you’re having a good vacation AND great weather, too! That is a lovely watercolor. Okay – get back to it and have some fun!
Those sweet babes! And the curlers–priceless. Love seeing your painting (the house, the shadows)–and love knowing you are just ‘down the road’ on this gloomy, Great Lake day! Happy to hear you’re enjoying every minute. (Will you go to Icing on the Lake? I thought I read they might be moving…not 100% sure.)
That Halloween costume is the BEST!!!
I hope you are having the best vacation. The setting looks absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations on becoming a painter. This last painting is just wonderful. Darling grands in their costumes. Life is good.
Indeed you are an artist. I love this pictures. Super cute wolf and little red riding hood.
