What a wonderful weekend. I got to spend lots of time with hubby (a rare occasion with both of our hectic schedules), got to be outdoors in the perfect weather, cooked a little and got some great gifties in the mail!
Our hike to Purgatory Chasm was interesting. We should have known by the sign.
After regaining our breath and letting our heartbeats return to a normal rhythm, we decided on a less harrowing trail.
After the excitement of the morning hike (and fall) I turned to a little cooking to further soothe my nerves. With the last CSA delivery we got a bunch of kale. Not quite sure I wanted more steamed or sauteed kale as I just finished a bunch of chard, I got a great idea from Jess to try some Pesto. I gathered up garlic, lemon juice, steamed kale, fresh grated Parmesan and some basil. All went for a spin in the food processor and I streamed in some olive oil.
I didn't manage to do much knitting this weekend. Between the hike, working at the kennel and doing those fun household chores like laundry there wasn't much time left. Something knitting related did cross my doorstep though - my new bag from Jen and Wendy! (and here as well)
Jen's blog a while back and commented on how much I loved it. They then went and made a great project bag and matching little zip pouch for me! Now I will have a bag for every project - perfect for my vacation coming up in a few weeks - keep everything organized! They included loads of little extras too. Pins, notecards with quite the adorable monkey on them and some knitting sheep, hair pins - it seemed endless when I was pulling it out of the bag. Thanks girls!!!!!
Another whirlwind weekend has come to an end. I hope you got out to enjoy it!
