Weekends



My weekend was filled with:

-listening to every media give predictions of the hurricane
-crossing my fingers and HOPING I can keep my electricity
-a walk with Frodo and my husband before the time change next week
-a little sadness that the after dinner walks will end because of the shorter days
-donuts, oh how do I love thee?
-a curry dinner for today made by my husband
-knitting with friends
-knitting projects
-list making for Christmas, groceries, errands and email musts.

(the yarn in the photo was hand dyed by my sis for me!!  It is 880 yards of laceweight wooly goodness and she said "I thought you could make another citron", oh baby sister, you know me so well.)

  1. Does your sister just dye yarn for fun or does she have an etsy shop? That looks like some beautiful laceweight.

  2. I love your whole weekend list! We are crossing our fingers here that we can keep electricity too! Ditto on the donuts! (We actually stopped at the store on the way home for Church for MORE DONUTS!) I've never had a curry dinner but would love to some day. And can your sister adopt me? What a wonderful surprise? Like Angela asked does she have an etsy shop? Her yarn is gorgeous!

  6. Karen, I hope you do keep power and the strom isn't as bad as they say. We were suppose to get winds and some rain, we didn't get a drop.
    That is a lovely stack of books you have there and what a sweetheart of a sister you have too.
    Much love to you Karen and thank you for the comment, I took it to heart and am holding it close.

  17. Hoping you keep your electricity. We probably won't, but one can hope. Love all that Anne Lamott, she's a favorite. I haven't read The Writing Life yet. You asked about A Barn in New England I was reading. It's pretty good so far, but a little slow, I'll let you know when I finish.

    That color is beautiful. Lucky duck you have the talent to do something with it.

    I miss our walks too. It got dark on us last week.

    Stay safe my friend!!
