Bits & Pieces

 Good morning, I hope everyone had a great weekend.
We had rain, most of the weekend but I always enjoy my time indoors,
so my weekend was awesome.
We even squeezed in a walk/zinger around the reservoir during a dry spell.
It started to rain again as we pulled away.

The Summer Bucket List is shorter than usual.
I tried to include more outdoor activities,
less Covid exposure.
"Less" indoor activities, but still some.

I picked up my coloring again over the weekend,
what fun on a rainy day.

I have been knitting...
this is the fourth of these Northwind Cowls I have made.
This is knitted with hand-dyed ,
100% Baby Alpaca
The color is Fireside, it will be perfect in fall.
And definitely just right for my Rhinebeck trip. 
I am on the last of the 5 sections.

Aren't these great.
Totally unnecessary, but I just loved them.
We went to a Craft Show in Chester last week,
and I just had to have them.

Don't they look great, 
getting a big hug from these fresh herbs?

The hubs grilled me this yummy dinner on Thursday,
makes you drool, right?
It was over the top delicious!

- never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun -

I think your bucket lists are a very good idea. And even better you stick to them!

We too are crossing off bucket list items this summer after 2 years of delays.

Love your little markers, what a treat. You are always faithful to do your bucket list and to keep it too. Your dinner did look great and especially those potatoes!!

I was wondering if you had a list for summer activities :). Looks like some great things are planned. yes that color for the cowl will be great this fall, could probably go into winter too. Looks like you were coloring the fall theme in your book too! The herb stakes are pretty cool, sometimes you have to get just because they bring a smile to your face!
Hubs did a great job on dinner, those are the best kind :)
Have a great weekend!
