Yes, we are on our fall vacation week. Paul has off until the 26th, so no work for him or school for Paulie and I. And I will have a very limited work week. So far we are having great weather, so that is nice. It will be a staycation for us, we’ve traveled enough this year, but we have some fun things planned. We are having a big turkey dinner on Tuesday, just because, and to try some new recipes before Thanksgiving. Family photos will be taken on Wednesday. Meeting some friends for dinner on Friday. Hopefully a night or two of using the fire pit. And we might even make it to a corn maze this week. But mostly we’ll just be enjoying our time together and not having to rush about on a strict schedule.
This past weekend was our monthly craft weekend and this month it was at my house. We had such a great time. My mom came and she taught me a new crocheting method called Tunisian Crochet. I haven’t quite decided yet if I like it or not, but we had a blast her teaching me. Then I taught her and my friend how to continental knit. I’m still learning it myself, and I’m not sure if I like the look of the stitch, but I’m going to keep going until I know the purl too. It was a great day overall.
I hope to get some more practice in on both of those crafts this week. I’ve found some more audio books I would like to listen to, so that should keep me busy. But I’ll be keeping busy with my family too, so we’ll see.
This is our 3rd or 4th year taking a fall vacation and we really enjoy it. How about you? Any of you out there take fall vacations from school?
