Oh Sunday night, we meet again.
It was quite a lovely weekend, actually … the sun came out midday on Saturday and it was glorious. I really do love fall when the days are like this – warm sunshine, cool evenings, and an explosion of oranges, reds, yellows, golds, and greens all around.
So … some random pics from a weekend spent mostly at home with no major schedule. (The best kind of weekends.)
Friday started with a pug leggings … which make me smile. (LuLaRoe of course.)
Saturday morning was my first run in over a week – gasp! It felt really good to get out on the path again.
The soybeans near our house are ready … but with a deluge of rain earlier in the week, no one is harvesting. It’s ungodly wet so hopefully we will see a few days of sun and dry weather.
It was also too wet Saturday to get out in my gardens for all the fall work / pre-winter prep that needs to happening. I did, however, admire how lovely my perennial mums still look.
And these sedums … love how brilliant they are right into October.
My zinnias are still going pretty strong – in fact, I cut a bunch of blooms to bring inside to enjoy this week.
Saturday afternoon Teacher Man and I visited Buffalo Rock Winery, enjoyed a tasting, and then lingered over a couple of glasses of wine.
Saturday night’s meal was the perfect trifecta of crusty French bread, a simple vegetable, and Giada’s fettucini alfredo recipe, which is both simple and amazing. It’s true you can’t really go wrong with butter, heavy cream, and Parmesan … and Giada’s recipe adds in lemon juice which is a little unexpected and so fresh!
Later that evening, we caught a Star Wars marathon on TNT with Joe … and yours truly actually stayed up with him until 2 am. I know. This is actually unusual for me. But it was a blast … and I kept thinking, evenings like this with our 8th grader are fleeting and go to fast.
Today, I did get out in the gardens and did more work than I expected to get done, which was a bonus. Later I did some prep for my LuLaRoe sale going on this evening. Check out this latest outfit I paired up … I just love all these amazing colors!
And just because I’m random, I will leave you with my latest Ed Sheeren obsession – the song Perfect. I can’t help it. I currently can’t get enough of this guy’s music.
Have a great start to your week!
