This weekend, however, being a long weekend, it seems like we did sneak in a bit of time for ourselves.
My brother and his girlfriend flew in for the long weekend. It was nice to catch up. We don't get to see each other that often, since he lives in Florida, so this was a treat.
This weekend was also my niece's first Homecoming. She and her friends clean up well.
I also explored my new cookbook, Against All Grain, and tried out a couple of recipes, like this bread. It was a pleasant surprise. And it's fabulous toasted.
These chocolate chip cookies, also from the cookbook, were fabulous!
So, so good!
The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying fall. The colors have not yet "popped" here in my corner of the state, but the yellows and greens were lovely, nonetheless.
Pumpkins, cider, and gourds. Oh my!
Lastly, I love John Oliver. Often, in my opinion, he is right on point, and so funny. I was mentioning to my husband this weekend that I wondered how Columbus Day is still even a thing, forgetting that John Oliver did his own take on this day last year. My husband said that in South America, it is celebrated as something like a Discovery Day.
Ok...fine...discovering a continent while you're convinced that the world is flat...fine.
But Columbus Day? How is this even a thing? ~Courtesy of John Oliver.
Hope you had a great weekend. What did you do?
