Autumn Goodness

Wow, what a gorgeous fall weekend it was around here. We had Stef home on fall break, so we had Linds & Jon over for dinner last night. We bought two roast chickens and I made baked macaroni and cheese, sauteed spinach and garlic, yeast rolls, and pumpkin cupcakes for dessert. I think I ate too much, but it was so yummy.

Today, in between getting a LOT of school work done, I was able to put together five jars of cookie mix, from a tutorial over at The Crafty Nest. They look so pretty.

I didn't make it to the beach, which was a shame, but I did spend a little time knitting on the deck. I am loving this sweater! I'm on the fifth color already! So much fun, this one is.

This week is shaping up to be another crazy, meeting-filled week, with the added bonus of completing my presentation for Saturday's class. Oh well, what doesn't kill us, makes us stronger. Or so I've heard.


  1. Good luck with the presentation!

    I love the colors in the sweater. Pinks and greens look so fresh.

  2. The little cardi is going to be gorgeous. I love the colors and the use of the pink against the green. It's exactly my plan for the mittens I'm making. The pink/purple for the cuffs and the green for the mitts. The pink is spun, but you inspire me to sit at the wheel and start spinning the green!

    I hope the week speeds by for you.
