A Long October Weekend

Hello there!

How was your weekend (I know it’s Tuesday, but we can still talk about the weekend, right?)

There was a lot of excitement around these parts … Mr. N came for his first visit since I moved to Philadelphia, and it was his birthday!  We had a lovely four day weekend … mostly unphotographed!  But I thought I’d share a few highlights.

Mr. N arrived early Friday morning, so after breakfast I introduced him to my new neighborhood.  The nearby park, my favorite place to buy groceries, a board game shop … the important stuff.  We couldn’t have asked for a prettier day.


Friday evening we went for dinner in Chinatown, then to “Terror Behind the Walls,” a haunted house at Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penititeniary — it was, indeed, terrifying!


Saturday was the birthday proper, complete with birthday scones for breakfast (recipe: here), a trip to an arcade, and dinner at local brewery.

And Sunday we tried out a game we picked up at the board game shop Friday: Patchwork!  It combines two of my loves — crafting and board games — into one very fun, two-player game:

At the end of a whirlwind weekend, we settled in last night for a viewing of A Walk in the Woods … and there was knitting, of course!2016-10-10-22-07-23My only complaint is that it all was over too soon.  We woke today to a morning so cold I had to turn on the heat (!), and Mr.  N was off by 8 a.m.  My apartment felt very quiet when I got home from work today … but luckily, we have another visit planned soon!

Hope your week is off to a great start.  Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

  1. That really did sound like a lovely weekend 😀 I spent Saturday working because of a misunderstood deadline, then chilled out on Sunday. No knitting; however I did sign up for a Portuguese Knitting Class from Craftsy to see if that would help me!
