Hello!  Another weekend has come and gone, I hope yours was delightful!  We visited our daughter and son in law in Delaware on Saturday and had a fantastic time.  I didn't take photos while we were together but I've managed to document some of my quiet moments.

I worked only on my hat as photoed above.  I love the fair isle knitting portion immensely. 

Above is my grand-kitty named 'Meiko' but they call her 'kitty'.  She is around 8-9 years old and they adopted her a year ago (ish).  She is a very vocal kitty!

Our Saturday was a ton of shopping where I bought another paint set and some used books.  We had a lovely dinner at a Thai restaurant then came back to their place for birthday cake, even though my birthday is later this month.

I need a detox from the sugar consumption!!

Sunday morning we went to Kennet Square to a craft/antique market and I found my very favorite new mug!  Moose and yarn!  We didn't have time to explore the town since we were on our way home, but that is definitely on my to-do list next time I go for a visit.

I picked up Frodo from the kennel last night and he is sporting a much shorter mustache after his grooming.  He had so many tangles that it was necessary to be extreme in the cutting.  He looks so dapper.

Frodo was sleeping on the couch and Holly was hiding under the loveseat, this is the two of them being together.  Much to my surprise. Holly snuggled up next to her beloved while Frodo snuggled up to me, in the same room.  Whenever we arrive back from any trip, they both act like they haven't seen us in forever.

My daughter and son in law bought me a skein of yarn (YAY) a plush Holly look-alike and not in the photo - a new art pen that lines like a dream.

How was your weekend?


  1. What a fun weekend! I love your new mug! And, a gift of yarn is always welcome! :)

  2. Oh that plush kittie is so cute!!!! And the real pets, are adorable also.

    Lovely weekend. No need for lots of photos. Me'thinks we tend to spend way too much of our time, peering at life, through some form of picture taking "machine." Which seems silly, when we stop and think about it.

    Memories are so much nicer. -smile-

    Quiet weekend here, just as we prefer them to be.


  3. That mug is wonderful. I love Moose and of course yarn! A happy early Birthday to you. I say is should not be BirthDAY, but BirthMONTH!

  4. What a lovely weekend you have had. I love your new mug. Frodo is looking very dapper. I had a quiet weekend in bed resting with laryngitis, waiting for my voice to make its slow return now.

  5. Sounds like you had a great weekend..
    Happy Birthday Month!

  6. Sounds like a great weekend. I am happy that you spent time with your family (the best) love your new mug. The hat is looking great. How fun it will be to wear during the gray days of winter. Our weekend was quiet - catching up from our travels. Church and coffee on Sunday. A pot of soup on Saturday.

  12. Sounds like it was a perfect weekend! We had our daughter and husband home for a visit, along with one of their close friends. We took a ride out to the countryside and had a lovely lunch at our favorite wine bar. It was a perfect autumn weekend!
