Weekending

Weekends don’t get any better than this one.

It started out with a fall party hosted by the best party throwers I know. There was lots of food, warm drinks, and plenty of catching up with friends. Saturday I slept in and spent a leisurely morning at the house by myself, sipping on coffee, catching up on knitting projects for clients, and watching Mansfield Park on Netflix. Those kind of mornings are recharging for me.

Matt rode in a 36 mile mountain bike race Saturday afternoon, so after my leisurely morning, I headed down the mountain to see him finish. Of course, I stopped to capture the last of the fall color on my way down.

I got to the race in time to see Matt and his dad finish together. They rode 36 miles in 4 hours and 20 minutes. I am so proud of them for riding and finishing!

After the race we decided to venture a little farther down the mountain and visit my family to celebrate my mom’s birthday. Happy birthday mom! My sister is visiting from Thailand, so we have been spending as much family time together as possible. We probably won’t see her again until April.

Oh, and I forgot the best part of my weekend: I was supposed to be leaving yesterday for Thailand for two weeks. I was going to be at a conference in a resort hotel, and as much as I was looking forward to the trip, it is much better timing wise for me to stay home. I was actually a little relieved when I got the email that the conference was cancelled due to all of the flooding. Now I feel like I have two glorious weeks of “extra time” to get ready for Thanksgiving and get caught up on some things!
