Hello, friends – it’s nice to be back! (which is always the best feeling when we return from a short break, right? 🙂 ) Our weekend was a perfect mix of good food, little boys, outside, inside, friends & family … and alone time.
Thursday morning dawned bright and chilly. #blueskyblooms for my morning walk.
Loved this text from Katie.
We spent the afternoon with the little boys and their parents. It was fun … and just a little crazy.The boys FaceTimed with Rob’s brother … Poppa and Charlie built a dinosaur … Sam supervised his dad carving the turkey … Charlie showing off his pilgrim hat/place card … Charlie and Poppa decorated the playroom tree … Charlie made a silly face over dessert.
Katie set a beautiful table.
…and we tried for a family photo.
Needless to say, by the time we got home … we were ready for bed!
Friday morning Marc played golf. I met up with Lydia and Kathy for beer, coffee and a little knitting.(that’s the beginning of a pair of socks for me.)
The rest of the weekend was quiet. We finished watching the latest season of Great British Baking Show (our least favorite … the challenges were mostly unapproachable, the show-stoppers were unappealing, contestants cried – not in a good way, and I didn’t look up a single dish to see how to make it).
Good thing I’d saved the latest season of Call the Midwife. no spoilers, but whoa. I needed all the tissues. (that’s progress on the Coatigan.)
I also started The Widows of Malabar Hill. Not only has this book made its way downstairs, it’s become a breakfast, lunch and dinner companion.(good thing leftovers make for easy reading.)
and now it’s Monday and I’m loving that there’s almost a full week of November left. We might even get our house decorated for the holidays before December arrives!
Hope your week is off to an optimistic start, too!
