The Weekend Is Upon Us!

Sunset View from Master Bedroom

Wow. It has been a week. What can I say? I’m looking forward to the weekend. I know those of you in the northeast are looking at a very snowy weekend. We have some snow forecasted, but it isn’t looking like it will amount to much, which kind of makes me sad. I hope by Sunday morning we have more coverage than in the photo above from two years ago. For one, we could really use the moisture. But it has been a not very wintery winter so far. There is still hope though. Traditionally February and March are our two snowiest months so I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Our house will be the honorary “Clubhouse” this Monday evening, so there will be a good bit of cleaning and a little bit of kitchen prep going on at our house this weekend. I’ll be making my whole grain chai doughnuts in mini form, prepping the dry and wet ingredients on Sunday so when I get home from work there is minimal more work to do to get them in the oven. I think I’ll also make a spiced up version of this Wasabi Soy Spread/Dip (I typically double or triple the amount of wasabi, though I am working with powder so that may be why I need to boost it) I’ve brought to knitting before. That does means lots of prepping of fresh vegetables to accompany it. The rest of the food will likely be ready to eat stuff – a cheese or two, some crackers, and a fruit or two. If I’m super motivated I may make up my homemade chai concentrate, but I’m not promising it!

What are you planning this weekend? Do you have any exciting knitting on your needles? I need to knit vicariously through you! :-)

Here are some links that caught my eye this week that you might find inspiation from:

I want to sit and stare at that bridge all day. Glorious.

My fabulous weekend plans involve working, working, and maybe fitting in a little work. Hopefully I can squeeze in a little glove/mitten knitting and The Baking of Cookies.

I’m planning to make lemon curd over the weekend and continue knitting my blanket. It is supposed to snow here on Sunday!
