After The Long Weekend

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend, and I hope my Canadian friends enjoyed their weekends too!

It started out with having dinner with my friends Bonnie and Blair at one of my favourite spots for Fish n'Chips in Eastern Ontario!  Bonnie and Blair went off to the Ottawa Senators home opener and stayed with us until Sunday morning.

Saturday morning I woke up to a bit of a shock at the scale!  I weighed myself to see if I should go to my WW meeting, I had lost 4lbs since Tuesday morning!  I did blog about it if you're interested.  Needless to say I rushed off to my WW meeting with Bonnie in tow to go weigh in for the month.  I am finally back to my goal weight!

That afternoon Bonnie and I got out and enjoyed the gorgeous fall day and went for a walk with our cameras.  Here are some of my shots from the walk.

The bikers were out enjoying the day!

The last of the sunflowers for the season

Milkweed pods splitting open and spreading its seeds

Cattle corn waiting to be harvested

The first Jack-O-Lantern for the season!

I have pretty much focused what stitching time I've had on Art Deco Spirits.  I finally finished up all the DMC on the Fire block and am now getting the metallics in.  Now that I can see the end of this block, I want to work on it more!  I've also made a small start on my October ornament, 'Tis Red from La-D-Da.

Thanks for stopping by my blog again...I had some computer problems and then "real life" caught up with me, now I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things again. I will post some pictures soon, but I have to do some editing of some senior pictures and get that cd to a friend before I can do much for "fun" with pictures.
Hope you have a great day!
