posted by soe 10:35 pm

Carole‘s Ten on Tuesday topic this week comes at a good time. Neither Rudi nor I had to work on Columbus Day, so we headed north to spend the holiday weekend in Connecticut. This offered plenty of options for this week’s subject.

Ten Things I Did This Weekend

  1. Finished my first pair of Socktoberfest socks in the appropriately titled New England colorway and started my second. (Photographic proof coming soon.)
  2. Worked on some trip-prep for the upcoming Iceland vacation by catching up on my reading and buying a red winter raincoat.
  3. Celebrated Dad’s birthday.
  4. Ate Mum’s delicious apple crisp.
  5. Sat outside in the sun.
  6. Slept in.
  7. Took in some fall color. (It’s muted and still edged out by green leaves after a ridiculously wet summer, but the yellows, oranges, and reds are still there.)
  8. Bought unpasteurized apple cider (Note: should you decide to do this, I would recommend against storing it in a non-refrigerated garage for two 85+ degree days and then taking it on a cabin-temperature, 8-hour car ride. It pretty much guarantees that your trip will end with the cider blowing its seal and leaking all over the car, the sidewalk, and the entryway to your apartment. You will, however, remember that cider forever regardless of its flavor.)
  9. Dozed in a hammock.
  10. Decompressed and relaxed enough to realize that a work deadline can be moved back a week without disastrous results.

How about you? What did you do this weekend?
