Good day, blog friends.
And a happy Monday morning to each of you.
It's November 11th and my mind is like a whirling dervish this morning - spinning, spinning, spinning... Thoughts occupying my brain range from current projects that beg for completion, to plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I suspect that most of you reading this can relate.
Doug returned home late Friday afternoon after being away for nine days for a hunting trip in Illinois with his brother. He brought home deer meat this time and that always brings mixed emotions for me, but he is a happy man. And I'm glad that his bounty came home in the form of already packaged meat.
I spent a lot of time in front of my sewing machine this weekend, and I'm happy to report that I made great progress on Carrie's quilt. All that's left is the binding and it will be complete. I will probably not share anymore photos until after Christmas now. :o)
Saturday afternoon/evening was spent with our sweet and beautiful niece, Kaycee. She'll be graduating from Arizona State University in December, and I was honored to take some photos for her graduation announcements. I'll have some more photos from our session later this week.
Yesterday was a busy day! I made an egg boat for breakfast, and then a batch of my grandma's zucchini bread. Later in the day I made some buttery beer bread for Doug and his friend to have with their dinner. Phew - lots of bread happening around here!
Carrie and I enjoyed lunch out and then a little fabric shopping. The fabric department in Joann's was CRAzy, friends. You can feel the frenzy building as people gear up for holiday sewing/crafting.
We had a visit from a long time friend of Doug's that we haven't seen for a while. The boys watched football, drank a few beers, and ate deer meat. And bread.
And now it's Monday morning and time to start all over.
I'm thinking a week without bread might do me good.
How was your weekend?
