Weekending | Hello November.

This weekend provided multiple examples of why November is such an easy month for me to love.

A Friday afternoon walk with Holly, especially with flip flops and crunching leaves.

A run to the lake on Saturday morning.


An opportunity to wish Sara "Happy Birthday, with something to cheer about" on Instagram. (I still don't know what the soundtrack is, but she said it was great one!)

Knitting with family who are friends on Saturday afternoon. on the porch!
spiced pear liqueur with prosecco and plenty of yummy food

An opportunity to wear my newest sweater ... and a most-patient sister to photograph it.
and these are just a few of the outtakes!
Taproot - on Ravelry here
(I'm wearing the sweater again today, but with capri length leggings ... it's supposed to be 74 degrees this afternoon!)

A Sunday morning walk on the greenway with Lauren.

In between all that, Marc and I enjoyed three quiet evenings at home with snacks and TV. We watched the latest Jack Reacher movie (I fell asleep at about the 30 minute mark), another Georgia Tech loss and the first two episodes of Bosch (on Amazon Prime). The Bosch was my favorite (and there are three seasons!), but Marc says "it's not Grantchester or Poirot". True. I think I'm going to investigate Acorn TV. Do you have it?

I hope you had a lovely weekend - and here's to a great week! (and 6 down, 24 more to go!)

  2. I love your knit-together family, the outtakes, and those shoes again! I have Acorn TV, and while it's okay, I hardly watch it at all any more. I got it solely for Season 2 of Detectorists, but now that's available on Netflix, as are many of the other things from Acorn. There a bunch of police procedurals (good, but still not Endeavour or Grantchester) and I have watched a few seasons of Vera (with closed captions!), but I might recommend the trial week, or a month or two (I think it's only $5/month with Amazon channels) to see if it's got the kind of things you're looking for. I'm thinking about cancelling Acorn and checking out Britbox (Dr. Who, Nigella Lawson, and Inspector Morse!), but haven't done it yet.

  3. Your Taproot is Beautiful!!! And, I LOVED Bosch! I am with Bonny on Acorn TV - there was not much choice. I think Brit Box might be a bit better, but I have not tried it. What a fantastic weekend you had (sans the football loss!)

  6. Oh, my goodness! The sweater outtakes!!! The sweater is just lovely -- and looks so wearable. :-) Best of all, I'm glad to read the words "run" and "walk" in your post. Your ankle must be better!

  12. Love that you included the outtakes too! Departing was well timed-the rain was awful, but getting together certainly made the day a bit more "sunny".
