That 1 Extra Hour Was Not Enough

I can't believe the weekend is already over.
I did not stitch at all last night. I just could not settle down. Here is one of the things that I accomplished yesterday.



This is Grandma's Pumpkin Bread from the Tasty Kitchen website.



I had to add walnuts. Nuts make everything better. This recipe is a keeper. I probably would do better with a 10 cup bunt pan than this fancy 8 cup one. I also had to cook this quite a bit longer than recommended. Yum!
Rich and I headed up the road to go to the new Trader Joe's in Winston Salem. We stocked up there and then at Costco. I try to get this dome before it gets too busy.
Then we went to Salem Lake park to get our walk in.



This is a nice walk around this lake, it is almost 7 miles long. There were lots of other people running, biking and walking.



This heron we saw was huge.



The leaves are almost gone but there is still a little color.
After that it was off to the movie theater where we saw The Flight with Denzel Washington. It was good but mostly about an alcoholic's struggle.
Now it is home getting ready for the week ahead. I got a few stitches in but this is still only part 3 of the By The Bay SAL.



I hope that everyone made the most of that extra hour today.

Have a great week!

Isn't that heron cold? The herons up here seem to disappear until spring again.

Your pumpkin bread looks yummy! A 7-mile walk? Impressive! I'm patting myself on the back for anything over one mile. Your By the Bay piece looks really cute!

You got a few stitches in and it is better than none.

Your stitching looks great! That pumpkin bread looks divine. My daughter made a Pinterest recipe for pumpkin cookies with caramel frosting--soooooo good.
