Details A9.03

rolling knitting (slowest blanket ever) in afternoon light at play waiting... with a big book acrobat halloween costume in the works! food please fire dying down

We did it! I was determined to have a good week and I think we succeeded. We packed it in; made trips to the park and garden and library, crossed off car repairs and laundry from our to-do list, read and snuggled by the fire, and even managed the occasional nap- although those are still far too short for comfort. I'm also getting into the swing of teaching my class Tuesday night's and having to be coherent late into the evening, I'm so exhausted that I'm actually finally getting some sleep too which is long overdue. The cool air may also be helping.

Today it's raining and my enthusiasm for staying busy and up-beat is waning a bit, but luckily it's Friday so I kept up the steam just long enough! This week-end will be about projects around the house, getting together with some friends, and indulging in my favorite Shipyard Pumpkin beer... it's seriously the best. Happy week-end.

  2. I love this post. It has such a fall-y feel to it! I feel you on the losing steam bit today. It's so rainy! And cold! I want warm socks and tea and a book...and so that's what I'm having! Can't wait to see that costume!

  4. Love that Shipyard beer. So delicious.

    I'm flying solo this weekend as my husband has to take a last-minute trip to help with some family things. It's our first weekend ALONE together! Alice and me, that is.

    Maybe I should go pick up some of that beer! With no extra set of hands around all weekend, I may need it! ;-)

    1. It's somehow so much harder to baby wrangle alone on the weekends (at least for me!). Hope you made it through and survived the rain.

  9. Glad to hear your week was good! I think getting out really helps lift my spirits too.

    W's hair is getting so full! He's got proper toddler hair now instead of just baby wisps. And I'm so interested in what his Halloween costume is going to be!

  10. i spy tights, sweaters, blankets, and a fire! i'm so jealous of your cooler weather. at least we have a breeze blowing the trees in the afternoon so i can look outside from the comfort of the a/c and pretend it's cooler outside. because the light is leaving earlier, it is a bit cooler in the house!!! (we'll have 100 plus degrees here this weekend.)

  12. Sounds like a great week. I like the weeks that balance outings, crossing items off the to-do list and relaxing some. I would like to read about Jane Goodall too. Another one on my reading list!
