A Relaxing Weekend

This past weekend we dogsat for my parents at their house. We had a great weekend, which consisted mainly of eating, crocheting, and watching movies.



Friday Night we made grilled cheese sandwiches, tomatoe soup, and fried green tomatoes. We also had a delicious bottle of Chardonel in fancy flamingo glasses. We bought the wine in Eureka Springs and they had suggested pairing it with grilled cheese!! It was delicious!

I worked on a shrug that is going to be a Christmas gift.


I also made myself a cowl:


The finishing touches were also done to a couple of afghans for Christmas...



And now that those are done, I started a new one last night...


I did a lot of crocheting while watching:




With all the relaxing going on all weekend, we did manage to get outside and enjoy the amazing weather on Sunday. Poot and I took a little 4.5 mile hike around Watkin's Mill State Park! It was the perfect way to end the weekend.






I could do this every weekend!!
