Rewind, Replay, Reverse

Rewind, Replay, Reverse

Today, I just want to go back in time.

Back to when we were on vacation.

Or at least back to Friday and the start of the weekend. Especially since yesterday was a day of Mary Poppins weather – you know the kind, Practically perfect in every way!

It all just went too fast and this week is full of so many fun-less (un-fun?) things it is looming with a huge UGH.

Someone is making noises that we will need to turn on the AC this week to which I will declare all-out war, and I have no intention of losing! No more AC in 2016. Period! Ha!!

On a calmer note. There was some knitting time this weekend, but no finish on the Honey Cowl. I have about 7 inches (of 11) done. To be continued. (Good thing Sunday was so nice that I did not even miss a cowl!)

This begins the “get my ass in gear and finish the painting in this freaking house” week (okay maybe month, but really – I want it all done BEFORE Christmas explodes in this house!)

And, this is just the tip of my iceberg. Can someone please just hit the rewind button??

How’s your week looking?

Monday, ugh.

Monday, ugh.

The weekend just FLEW in my neck of the woods, which could be directly related to the amount of rainy weather that filled the days.

There was no outdoor cocktail hour because it was raining so hard. This also put the kibosh on a backyard bonfire, however, the indoor Tapas were excellent!

Saturday we had a successful trip to the local farmer’s market, managing to get in and out in between raindrops as well as a bit of retail therapy. (Yay for indoor activities!)

There was not much knitting, but there was some reading – although I did not finish any books.

There was a tiny bit of spinning though – this Whitefaced Woodland from Sheepspot is just amazing!

Today, I think will spend part of the day ripping back that darned sock while I catch up on Poldark. I hope you have Monday off, and if not, then may it be one you can ease into and it is over before you know it!

A Labor Day Weekend, Sans Labor

A Labor Day Weekend, Sans Labor

Happy Tuesday that feels like a Monday to me! Although that is not all bad because tomorrow is Wednesday already and that is halfway to the weekend!

Although, there may have been a conversation yesterday about needing a weekend from our weekend…some things are so nice they just should not end!

10 Things You Did This Weekend

There were so many good things this weekend, I will be hard pressed to hold them to 10!! So, let’s get this rolling shall we?

  • An extra special (and early) Happy Hour on Friday (thanks to Steve taking the day off from work, which started our weekend off nicely!!) It included his AWESOME Buffalo Wings and a plethora of Americano’s
  • Estate Sale-ing (I can fondue, can you?)
  • Walking – LOTS of walking! Up hills and down!
  • Enjoying our repurposed fire pit – twice! Simple but effective!
  • Eating… so much eating. And drinking!
  • Reveling in a less humid, cooler atmosphere… ahhhh!
  • Game playing… Uno, Bananagrams, and Pass the Pigs, note… these things inspired so much laughter, perhaps we spend too much time adulting and not enough time caring for our inner child.
  • A minute amount of knitting, very minute.
  • Picking MORE tomatoes and raspberries! Holy produce!!
  • Thoroughly enjoying the Hummingbird Moth visits! So amazing!

That was my very full weekend! How about you? How was your weekend?

P.S. Sherman did an awful lot of this. I think he had a very good weekend too!

It was a quiet weekend in my corner of the world. Quiet, hot, and muggy. Relief is in sight however, which is ironically forecast to arrive on Thursday – September 1st.

I think the weather gods are having a good laugh over this. But, really. I am so ready!

We picked volumes from our little garden – we picked some things that were not quite ripe, which turned out to be a very good thing when the deluge of rain hit last night. It was nice (not!) to leave us with a foggy steam bath this morning.

My list seems long today, however, I was up bright and early. Yogurt is at work in the Instant Pot, quick Roasted Raspberry Jam is done and cooling in a jar, and in moments these lovely tomatoes will be on their way to the most delicious jam ever.

I hope your weekend was filled with good things! Here is to lots lines crossing things off my list for this week… how about you?
