Oh man, that was a fast weekend! It was good (although the weather was less than cooperative for us on Saturday despite your best intentions) but it really zoomed by. Here’s a recap that’s almost just as fast!
We had no Kiwanis this week since our installation of officers was held last Sunday. It was a beautiful night and we spent it on the deck with snacks, drinks, and Jo-Ann.
My day started early with pie crust before 7am. I like to get it made and chilled before rolling and I knew the earlier it was ready the smoother my day would go. I also rushed around to do errands, decorated the house for fall, made a killer beef stew, and helped Dale set up tents on our town common for a Civil War living history event.
By the time evening came I was wiped out! I did enjoy my first Manhattan of the fall season. It was warm and wonderful! Dale had debated sleeping up on the common but wound up coming home and we had a quiet night together.
It was raining when we got up but the showers ended and the skies brightened by mid morning. We gathered with fellow reenactors and friends on the common. There was knitting and chatting and so much laughing! The rain arrived by noon and it came down heavy at times but we powered through in spite of it.
Pie always helps. There was apple.
And I took a Civil War selfie for you.
Our original plan was to have dinner with our friends up on the common but the wet and the cold drove us home. We had that terrific beef stew and biscuits and it was warm and cozy inside. And the clean up was a lot easier, too.
Dale got up and went to visit Jack and take down canvas on the common. I stayed home and puttered around and got ready for the Pats game. We shall not speak of the outcome but we did enjoy our time with Tom and some buffalo chicken dip.
After the game ended I consoled myself with some wine and knitting on the deck. Baby Balloon Pants are on the needles!
How was your weekend?
