This weekend was filled with:

-going to a local fair and not riding this ride :)
-eating not very good for you food
-enjoying every single glorious bite, especially funnel cake
-being thrilled with the cooler temps even if it does rain a little
-company!  my brother in law and sister in law are visiting for a long weekend
-talking and talking
-my sis in law DOES knit so we talk about knitting and we do knitting
-brief chats with each kid because everyone is busy-I'm amazed at how quickly we can catch up in a five minute phone call!
-apple crisp

how was your weekend?

  1. Oh, I love that ride! Or I used to, anyway. I'll bet it would do funny things to my stomach, these days… I am jealous of your company; we haven't had any overnight visitors since we moved here & I love hosting friends and family so much. Hopefully a few folks will be in over the next month to make up for it. So glad you had such a lovely weekend & hope your week is just as nice! xo

  2. Sounds like a great weekend. We hit a fall fair this weekend too. We looked at the rides, but didn't go on, and we stayed away from the food :)

    My sister in law knits too, always great to chat and knit together.

    Enjoy your week.

  3. We skipp the rides also! Hot scones with raspberry jam and butter are the signature food of our fair......

  4. funnel cakes!!! that's my hubby's FAVORITE!!!! usually the line is around the block---for some reason, his timing at the barbeque weekend was perfect,and he got one with only a short wait. YUM (actually, I wouldn't know---he won't share!!))

  5. Yum funnel cakes! Festivals are awesome!

  6. I am so glad you enjoyed your funnel cakes, they are one of my favorites too. It has been pouring here for hours and I am seeing temperatures at 73 degrees, not wool weather yet, but at least it's cooler.
    Have a wonderful visit with your family.

  7. knitting with a SIL...how fun! I love the swings in your pic, they are my fave to ride!

  8. A fair and some funnel cakes...such fun in the fall. Our temps here in Arizona were still in the triple digits this weekend, but we have faith they will fall one day! Cooler days sound wonderful! Enjoy the week ahead!

  9. Wow sounds fun-filled...I was with one of my sister-in-law's whose also my best friend this weekend and we both knit which was lovely too...especially as i've actually started my Annabel.

    Hope the rest of the week has as many highs!

  10. Your weekend sounds a lot like mine! Isn't fair food yummy? I have to admit that I pay the next day because my tummy rebels a bit. And like you - I did NOT go on any scary rides.

  11. fair! please say you had a funnel cake. please?

  12. Your weekend sounds wonderful. Definitely not riding that ride and oh yes I miss funnel cakes!! It's so great you have a knitting partner in your family. I am enjoying the cooler weather too; I am trying to hold off on turning on the heat.

  13. Ok, it's 10:33 at night and I'm absolutely in the mood for funnel cake. Yum.

  14. Hi Karen,
    Just wanted to say thank you for your lovely message on my blog recently.
    Glad to hear your weekend was so lovely...
    Ronnie xo

  15. I would not go on that ride either. NO WAY!

  16. looks like and sounds like you had so much fun!
    we started making funnel cakes at home because we can't wait for the fair to come around, we're such kids... ;)

  17. Love fair food and it's sooo bad for you. Yum. Isn't great to spend time with a fellow knitter?
