I had numerous reasons to stay home yesterday. The to-do list was calling -- the tyranny of the urgent almost got the better of me. But it didn't. :)
It was sunny, and it was warm -- a 70 degree day in mid-October is a gift to be enjoyed! And to top things off, it was AnnaLynn's final day of being 10 years old.
So we threw together a simple picnic lunch of tuna sandwiches on sourdough, dill pickles, and some chips and salsa and seized the day. :)
After enjoying our little picnic lunch by the river, Daniel and Anna ventured off to explore...
While I enjoyed a peaceful hour of knitting.
Eventually, my sense of responsibility and that nagging to-do list prevailed; it was time to head for home.
What a great way to spend the day. I love that we live only five minutes away from such a beautiful place!
As you might have guessed from the photo above, this week's knitting has been focused on trying to make progress on Jessica's scarf. Reading time has been rather limited, but I did spend some time earlier this week reading about soaking grains in Nourishing Traditions.
The only other project I gave any attention to this week was working up a few more crocheted pieces for the jewelry frame displays I'm making for my upcoming bazaars (the first one is coming quickly -- Nov. 12).
Sharing over at the Yarn Along. :)
