A chilly 37 degrees this morning. What a beautiful weekend we had. How was yours? Those of you who read Dee's Blog know that we met up on Saturday for a walk along the canal path. There were a few turtles out and we saw blue herons!
We walked the path/trail and then had lunch at Fitzwater Station which is situated right by the canal. We were able to get a table on the deck overlooking the water. There were plenty of folks canoeing and kayaking and plenty of ducks too. After lunch we headed to a local coffee shop for some knitting/sipping/chatting. A lovely time. Thank you Dee!
The cooler weather and so many birds migrating prompted Fletch to pull our feeders out from the shed (we don't feed the birds in the summer). Lo and behold someone - Mr. Mouse - had built a cozy nest in the feeder we use for sunflower seeds.
Luckily no one was home when Fletch pulled the feeder from the shed!
The cooler temps also had me putting out a few Fall things:
A vase with goldenrod and winter berry and my squirrel candle holder. I bought squirrely years ago at Restoration Hardware and I love him.
I also felt like a Fall dinner, so I made some Butternut Squash Peanut Curry (recipe link) - delicious and so easy to make (in about an hour).
Saturday night Fletch and I watched Little Women and I confess I dozed through some of it...but enjoyed what I saw. All in all, a lovely weekend. A very little bit of knitting was accomplished.
I started the heel flap when Dee and I were at the coffee shop...and I knit a few more rows on it, but didn't quite finish. Maybe today. It's not a race.
Meanwhile, the workday is here. I have a conference call at 10 and have some things I need to prepare for that. Here's to a good week!
