I know it’s hump day and all but with the Monday holiday and the book club posting yesterday I’m just now able to catch you up on my weekend. It’s not like it was a particularly epic weekend or anything, but it’s Wednesday and I’ve got to post about something so it might as well be the weekend.
Friday. It was rainy and icky and I pretty much chilled at home other than a dash to the grocery store. I had to get stuff for snacks, of course, plus enough to carry us through until next week. I really make it a point to only grocery shop once a week.
The snacks were delicious and we had our first fire in the wood stove that night. It was great for ambiance and it took away the chill from all that cold rain, too.
Saturday. I went shopping at Home Goods with Jessica and Jackie. I’ve been on the look out for pillows and such to make our bedroom Christmas-y. I found a great red throw, as well as a new pillow, a Christmas shower curtain, a truck for Jackie, some napkins, placemats and a bunch of other stuff I probably didn’t need.
Dale and I went to see Downton Abbey in the late afternoon. The scenery was beautiful and I loved the set and costumes on the big screen. The story itself . . . it wasn’t disappointing but it wasn’t really a great movie, either. Honestly, it was more like watching a really long episode of the show. After the movie we went out for drinks, apps and music and had an all around nice evening.
Sunday. And Monday. I hibernated. I mean, did you see that I went out among the people almost all day Saturday? I earned two days of not leaving the house. Dale was working with the band both afternoons at a local farm for a fall festival and I hung out at home. I did some knitting. I listened to a book. I made quahog chowder and I baked chocolate chip cookies.
I did some crafting with the Cricut and I turned a plain white tray (that I got on the clearance rack at Home Goods) into this one personalized with our last name.
And I made a onesie for a friend to give as a gift.
Each day when Dale got home we were able to sit outside on the deck and have a cocktail before coming in to twinkle lights and snuggles on the couch.
It was a very good weekend.
