It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
The weather in Michigan was unseasonably gorgeous this past week! It was a week to be outside as much as possible, to soak it up before it disappears for the winter, which will be here soon enough. Saturday in particular was a wonderful day spent with Billy and the Boy. We headed to one of our favorite places, Oakwoods Metropark, where we sat in their big room that is all windows, looking at birds and chatting with our two favorite interpreters. The wind was blowing outside, but the fire was blazing and keeping us just warm enough without being too hot. Wyatt seemed to really enjoy his time there too, for a bit. When he got tired of sitting there, we took a walk through the woods, leaves crunching underfoot, the colors of the trees blazing as brightly as the fire had. I had my camera with me and managed to snap a few shots.
This shot in particular seemed hauntingly autumnal to me. It makes me imagine.
I am looking forward to Wednesday this week - my friends are coming over for our first ever "Stitch and Bitch". A few of us are not crafty, but Chrissy is going to teach those of us who want to knit how to make a baby headband, and I am going to have some beginner embroidery kits on hand as well. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone creates! Of course, there will be sparkling water for those in our group who are nursing moms, and wine for those who are not. I love the idea of this - women gathered together in friendship, being creative, chatting and sharing food and drink. It is going to be fun!
