Its coming – the first official day of Autumn. Even in the 90-something degree heat, and the lack of any leaf changes, I feel it coming. I want to make chili, and have just bought a cinnamon whisk for my … Continue reading

A Weekend of Leadership
I just got back from a wonderful weekend! This past weekend was the 2016 GFWC Florida Fall Board Meeting. It was held in Orlando and BOY! was it busy! I attended quite a few workshops on Education Programs, Public Relations, … Continue reading

Out and about
This weekend was a bit busy.
Saturday morning, as always – went to Knit group – we sat, chatted and crafted. It was a great morning.
Noon, headed home for Game Day – once a month or so we have some friends descend on my house and we play games for some hours. This time, we were cleaning up around 6:30 pm. The rest of the night was TV and blah.
Then Sunday, after cleaning my house like a dervish, and hubby doing a bunch of yard stuff, we headed to Mom’s for lunch.
She had visited Milan earlier this year and shared what she learned in her cooking class.
There was also wine and Limoncello.
We headed to the grocer after – for fruit and yogurt, nothing special – then home to veg.
What I’m Reading
OK, so I read a lot.
Like, a lot. Usually three or four at a time, one next to the bed, one in my purse, one in the living room….
So, its a bit odd that I am currently reading one book.
Its good – got my attention, but not a stay-up-all-night-to-finish-the-book kind of story.
I have two books waiting for me at the library, which I will be getting tonight – so I can catch up with my book club, as I reenter my life and get back involved with the groups I have chosen to.
I also just went to my latest Women’s Club meeting. Getting back into life. For real now!
On my needles
Ironically, as of right now today – there is nothing. At least nothing I recall (long UFOs notwithstanding). I cast off and wove ends on the socks of doom. Wow, that’s big! Ok, I also just finished a pair … Continue reading
I recently had ordered some new bags – had a plan to organize my car a bit. This is not going to work like I thought, but I got some cute stuff! Now, I was also gifted a great big, … Continue reading
Rainy Day Movies
I love rainy days in which I don’t have to work (driving in the rain is something Completely Different).
I would sit with my knitting, a cup of coffee or tea, depending on the time, maybe a cozy blanket (if it’s cool too, a rarity in my state) and watch movies or listen to some podcasts. I generally get through my podcasts each week, so there is nothing left to catch up on though.
I have go to movies I can watch over and over. I’m sure you do too.
Some of mine include:
Harry Potter – again, most any
And lastly – as it is a classic in my house – The Princess Bride.
Wuve, Twue Wuve….
How about you? What are your go to movies?
