This weekend, I . . .



. . . made two loaves of pumpkin chocolate chip bread, copying Becky's idea.

. . . helped my daughter make a fleece throw, using Barb's instructions.

. . . watched four baseball games in beautiful 80-degree weather.

. . . was grateful for cell phones, so I could keep in touch with Dan while he was watching softball and I was watching baseball.

. . . got wa-a-ay far behind on laundry.

. . . had the best breakfast at a truck stop on the interstate.

. . . enjoyed the two-hours in the car with my middle child, while he played his music for me, told me about each artist, and we had time to just chat.

. . . had a date night and watched "Date Night" on pay-per-view.

What'd you do this weekend?  Head on over to Becky's and link up!

Woo hoo ... 80 and baseball ... perfect!

And isn't the pumpkin bread just wonderful this time of year. I have no idea why it never tastes this good in May.

We had beautiful fall weather here in northeast Texas this weekend, too. Such a relief after our long, hot summer.

I made a pan of pumpkin bars last night. Maybe I'll try the pumpkin chocolate chip bread next. I always get in the mood for pumpkiny foods in fall!

Hi Karen, your weekend sounds just perfect. It's wonderful to accomplish so much and have everyone feel so good about it. It's been a bit wet around here with a weekend of gorgeous fall weather. My sweaters are out and ready to go - I prefer dressing for fall and winter more than for the summer - probably because I can cover more :).
Ciao, bella!

I helped my youngest daughter with a school assignment and envied my middle daughter because she went to the state fair. I wanted to go...maybe next year.

Glad you had a good weekend!

Pumpkin and chocolate chips? Hmmmm.....I will have to think on that one.
We are loving the fall weather here too - only with football instead of baseball!
