Weekending: 9/18-9/20

It was another beautiful weekend on the island. Chilly temps followed us around most of the time.  I actually considered turning on the heat at one point because it was only in the 40's outside.  My stubborn side prevailed though and I am still holding out for October to run any heat.  Instead, we beat the chill by going for coffee and donuts at the local bakery.  I say "the local bakery" because it's the only one.  It has semi-limited hours, but Dalwhinnie Bakery is a must if you are on the island.


Specks and I did some serious walking this weekend too.  It was perfect weather for long strolls out into the wilderness.  I caught this picture of our shadows on Sunday morning, just after sunrise.  We were strolling at the beach near our house.  I'm going to miss these early sunrise days soon, but the days are getting shorter all the time.


Here's a little proof of the shorter days to come from one of our nighttime strolls this weekend. I'm sure the darkness will just keep creeping in until I am going to work and coming home in the dark every day.  Such is the pattern when you live in the north woods.


We wrapped up the weekend with some homemade chicken and dumplings, courtesy of Cody's grandma and her super-top-secret family recipe.  Cody spent a ton of time learning to make them with her and now he makes them a few times a year.  I don't eat them because of my meat aversion, but I do always help make the dumplings.  It's a fun project that we love doing together from time to time.




Your turn…What did you do this weekend?

  1. This past weekend I went to Sandusky, OH for two days, and Put-in-Bay for one day. I had never been to Put-in-Bay (also an island) before so it was definitely interesting! Great place with a lot to do and see. :)

  2. I always thought Fall walks were so beautiful with the changing colors and everything. Plus it looks like you have a very pretty area to go on walks on. But you are so brave waiting to turn the heat on! I don't know how you do it.

  3. This past weekend I went to a picnic with a group of people who I'm going to Guatemala with next week. It was the first time I had met some on them.

  4. I went to Cedar Point for Bloggy Conference 2015. Took my guys with me so we could hang out at the park during downtime.

  5. Did you just say "Fiona Apple"? In my 20's I followed her around. I LOVE Fiona Apple.

    1. Yes! I am a total Fiona fan! One of the reasons I like to post my "currently listening to" is because I like connecting with people who have similar musical tastes.

  6. Dumplings sounds amazing right now! I am working on my fall bucket list so I can take advantage of this weather.
