Happy Monday morning to you all. It's been a busy but good weekend here in the sunny Northwest. We just did "stuff" around the house and yard for the most part. Saturday afternoon we took Chloe out to the lake so she could run and Hubby could check the battery on the trailer. He had forgotten to do that while we were closing things up. I also had a few other "favorite" kitchen things, (spoons, garlic press), that I hadn't brought home. So off we went. It was a beautiful day in the middle 60's and we had a great walk around the shoreline. Chloe had only been down there once before. In the season, dogs aren't allowed in the main part of the resort. She loved running along the shoreline and watching the birds. We watched two bald eagles soar back and forth over the lake for almost 45 minutes. Would you believe I didn't have either the camera or my iphone to get pictures? How silly of me.
Sunday after church, Hubby wanted to go back to the lake to see if the battery was re-charging after filling it with water on Saturday. So we had lunch with several friends went home to get Chloe and off we went to the lake again! Surely I wouldn't forget the camera again! Oh yes I did. Silly me. The maintenance staff always pulls all of the boat and swimming docks into the bay for the winter. Hubby and Chloe had a grand time walking around all of the docks that are tied together. Chloe couldn't figure out why the "ground" was moving! She is terrified of water and if she had known she was way out in the lake on the docks she never would have gone out there. Several other friends were also at the campsites closing up for the winter. I think we're all about done. If I had known we were in for such a beautiful stretch of 60+ days, we wouldn't have closed up two weeks ago. Oh well. Next year will come soon enough.
After we got home we cleaned out the garage a little and I cut Hubby's hair. We spent the evening watching T.V. while I knitted and Hubby snoozed! :-) We lead such an exciting life don't we?
I finished Alex's scarf what with all of the driving to and fro from Loon Lake! Please excuse the towels and pins. I washed it this morning and it's busy blocking and drying. Just look at the gorgeous colors in this yarn!
This morning I went and got my flu shot and did some Christmas shopping for Kyleigh and Caleb. Since we'll only be home from Japan about a week and a half before Thanksgiving I thought I better get busy and start thinking ahead. We'll do Christmas with them at Thanksgiving since we won't see them on Christmas itself. We could mail their gifts, but it's fun to watch them open them.
Now I have two loads of laundry drying on the clothesline, (did I mention the weather is gorgeous here?) I've blocked the scarf and I'm going to go out and trim the last of my roses. I think the bush is done for the year. After that, hmmmmm. Maybe I'll knit on some mittens! I'm making steady progress on them and I'm sure I'll have another batch done by the end of the week.
Have a lovely Monday my friends.
