Weekend in October

October is perfect.  Just cold enough to indulge in reading, writing and knitting, still nice enough in the afternoon for walks or chatting with the chickens a bit out on the deck. 
(don't judge, they are excellent listeners)

Cranberry Crumble and coffee makes for a simply thematic and warm breakfast to be had while leisurely reading news and checking Facebook, Twitter and other favorite sites on the computer.  I do love having time to go to my favorite message boards on the weekend and catch up.  (Although, the sugar high from the crumble is making it hard to type.)

I am reading the Sandman Slim books by Richard Kadrey and this weekend I am plowing through the 2nd one, Kill the Dead.  I am really enjoying these odd books.  James Stark is the ultimate bad ass antihero.  Thank God for my Kindle for immediate access to the third one.  Because I am almost there.  (Note to self, check digital library before buying.)

Last night we indulged in a Merlin marathon, the 3rd season finally showed up on Netflix,  which meant I catch up on knitting projects.  I assuage my guilt at staring at the TV by keeping my hands busy, and NOT in a popcorn bowl.  At present I am working on a pattern I can't do with needles I don't have and didn't like it when I finished it and ripped it out.  There is a mitten pattern I would absolutely kill to be able to make but I am afraid it is well beyond my talents.  (I never have learned how to do cables, though Mom is more than willing to teach me.)

Did I mention my efforts to lose weight?  I think I have.  Well, my Wii balance board and my scale are having differences of opinion about my weight and well, I've got to side with the scale.  The scale is showing continual progress while the Wii Fit balance board is making snide comments and asking if I know why I gained weight.  I guess it wasn't there when I actually buttoned those size 14's!!  (stupid piece of crap)

Heading out tonight to see family and celebrate an anniversary milestone. I love my family. (yes, I am leaving the house AT NIGHT, I do sometimes, you know)

Have a wonderful weekend.
