My weekend started a day earlier than normal. I took Friday off from work. I went and had my mammogram, then off to the Megan's house to have lunch with Jenny, Owen and Megan. We went to Osaka's. While Megan had sushi, Jenny and I had Habachi Chicken and I also had shrimp in mine. Then Jenny headed to work for a hour or so for a meeting and Megan, Owen and I headed over to my house to work on Halloween costumes. I got Megan's all done including the Queen of Hearts necklace she wanted-it turned out awesome (forgot to take a picture of it though)! Didn't get to work on Owen's due to lack of time, but I will be finishing up his costume today. Then Jenny came back and got Megan to take her home. John and I had Owen over night and what a good baby he was. We read to him, played with him, "talked" with him, etc. I put him down at 9:30 p.m. and he slept until 7:30 a.m. Sat. morning. He is such a sweetheart and a blessing!
After Jenny came and picked Owen up John and I headed out to get some McIntosh apples so I could make an apple crisp. We were breaking in the new firepit and we needed something to have with our tea really!
Went out to the mailbox and I was surprised my yarn I had ordered from a woman (her site is Zibeline Knits) on etsy had arrived! Just gorgeous as you can see:
John and I had gone to Home Depot when we got the apples. We bought 4 mums for the urns out front and a flowering Kale. I planted them as you will see in the next few pictures:
Then I decided it was time to decorate the house for Autumn! I love this time of year!! Here is what I did:
Today I'm taking a more less event filled day. I will be chilling out until around 1 when I'm meeting my knitting friends for a few hours. We will be chatting and knitting away!
Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
