long weekending
posted by soe 2:18 am

We headed up to Connecticut for a long long weekend, the benefits of which have worn off after a mere day of being back in the office. Such are the perils of the working girl!

What did I do while I was away, other than sit in a lot of traffic, you ask?

We listened to two losing Nationals games while driving. This makes me think that the Nats would prefer it if I would not listen to tomorrow’s game.

We got to be Amani and Marcus’ first guests to their new home, which was all in order after a mere week of occupancy (mine would have been cluttered with boxes forever months). They served up hot drinks, ice cream, and freshly baked scones and caught us up on all their news.

I slept in and generally caught up on sleep. There was also a mid-day cat nap on Monday.

Strawberry Daiquiri

I baked cookies, helped my mom peel apples for a pie, and made scones with my dad.

We celebrated my dad’s birthday.

I visited with Karen.

Maple Leaves

I admired the foliage, which was just beginning to pop along the state’s northern border. (This coming weekend will probably be lovely!)

We watched the film Sing Street, Lin-Manuel’s appearance on Saturday Night Live, the season premiere of Supergirl, and the second presidential debate.

Stafford Green during the Rain

I read Avi’s School of the Dead, which my dad had taken out of the library and kept so I could peruse.

We discovered two new sources of cider doughnuts.

Sorry our visit was so short. I hope we can have more time together next time.

Great job capturing the autumn colors in your pictures!
