Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments 
in the comment section with a link to your blog.

This weekend was the weekend that began our household of two and I enjoyed the new beginning.  Fall for me is a beginning because of the school year starting.  Just like school children, I have some new notebooks and some new pens to use!  On Saturday, I gathered up all the clothing donation bags that were tucked into many closets and brought them downstairs to one location.  Completely cleaned all nooks of the guest bathroom (kid bathroom).  The pantry had a mini redo on it's lower shelves.  

Oh the knitting that I did while not moving "stuff" around.  I worked on all three projects at some point or another.  Talked to the kids, listening to their life adventures and am grateful that I can imagine them in their new towns and apartments.

Yesterday, I worried about Frodo who seems to have pulled a shoulder muscle.  That's our best guess, he is eating and drinking fine, so we did not walk and we did give him extra snuggles.  Hopefully today is a better day for him.

There was:  pizza, Dr.Who (the end of Amelia and Rory!!), more knitting, rain showers, leisure newspaper puzzle solving.

How was your weekend? 

Thank you all for the well wishes on our Anniversary!!

What I Like about Him

We are celebrating 27 years of marriage this week.  (YAY)

So I'm listing what I like about him:

-he laughs at my jokes even if they aren't that funny
-whatever I'm worried about he says it will be okay
-we talk at the same time about the same stuff
-we both have fitness trackers and compare how many steps we have (I'm nearly always behind)
-he will ferret out unknown to me yarn shops for day trips and lunches, nearly every time there is also a used vinyl record shop as well for him

-he likes most of my crazy ideas
-he knows the difference between knitting and crocheting
-we love long aimless car rides
-I am directionally challenged and he knows where we are where ever we are
-he makes the best pizza crust from scratch and delicious curry dinners
-I still cannot read his writing but come close to the message when needed
-he can calculate in his head, I'm a finger counting girl so it comes in handy after 10.

Have a lovely weekend :)

Currently on the Needles

My knitting has been great fun this past week.  As some of you may know, I started the hitofude cardigan and have joined Steph in a knitalong of sorts.  Care to join us?  We would love to have you!

Still knitting my shawl, smiling when I get to do my short row shaping.  Lovely.  I'm nearing another section at the end.  I can easily see myself knitting this shawl again.

I started a new book, a young adult novel, Eleanor and Park which I've seen on fellow blogger's posts.  I only started but I'm happily wrapped in a love story.

What are you knitting and reading this week?
