The Extent of My Halloween Decorating

While my nails remain scantily clad in their chipped September polish, I still haven’t come up with a Halloween costume idea I like, and I bought gingerbread from a bake sale instead of doing my own baking, I got through quite a bit of my to-do list for the weekend.

Halloween Pirate Ship

Rudi had yesterday off, so after a relaxed start to the day, we did a little cleaning and a little laundry, and then rode across town on a 13-mile Coffeeneuring bike ride to the Lamond-Riggs neighborhood, where we got to check out a new-to-us library and coffee shop. (More on that to come in a future post…)

Bake Sale Cookies

This morning, I hit the farmers market for apple cider and bought the first quince of the season. I moseyed up to the local park in the afternoon for their Halloween festival (and the aforementioned bake sale) and then rode down to the waterfront to check out the Crafty Bastards craft fair (where I failed to procure the tea I wanted or any Christmas presents, but where I did buy Christmas cards, so I should be set on that front). I treated myself to fried dough sticks from a food truck and the best chai I’ve had in D.C. from a coffeehouse/restaurant and walked most of the way back across town.

I did not finish any knitting projects, but I’m way closer with the Halloween socks, which I knit while watching World Series baseball (but not on Friday, because the Sox kept screwing up every time Rudi turned on the game) and reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (the illustrated version, which is heavy enough to stay open on its own if I prop it on the sofa bolster).

How was your weekend?
