The weekend was mainly a "do nothing" weekend for me. A restorative weekend was in order. On my calendar was penned Rhinebeck! and I had every intention of attending for the first time this year, really I did. But the closer that date loomed the more I questioned whether I really wanted to spend seven hours total in the car to do a day trip.
I'm sure I've mentioned that I do not like crowds nor do I like to wait much for anything. I have the luxury in my life to do my grocery shopping with retired people during the day-that's my speed. So on Thursday, I canceled the kennel stay for Frodo and looked forward to a quiet uneventful boring weekend. For some reason the "do nothing" weekend felt like a gift. Once the decision was made, I felt completely at peace and happy.
So my weekend contained:
-starting a new knitting project, and yes it's another cowl
-inhaled and soaked up the sights and smells of fall in my back yard, it is completely in every cell of my body :)
-dinner with friends, laughing and catching up with life's details
-clearing off the kitchen counter of papers and stuff.
-gathering up some Christmas knitted gifts to see who gets what
-deciding who is left to knit for
-homemade pizza today which I cannot wait to eat-I'm hungry as I type this
-walking our dog in the afternoons
-sort of looking forward to the time change in November
And dare I say I felt like playing Christmas music!?!?!? I resisted but I was humming....
How was your weekend?
