Riding, kittens and s’mores

Again, a wonderful weather weekend! It’s weekends like this in the fall that make the Northeast so awesome :D  We headed our for a nice ride to Schuylerville.  We only stopped once in the 19 miles it took to get there.

That’s Vermont way off in the distance.

We stopped at Espressohuis, which we have come to really like as a coffee shop.

There is a visitor’s park right by here with a ceremonial tree.

Again, so much of early American history happened right around here.

We booked on home without stopping, so no more pictures of our ride!

After Sunday’s ride, my total mileage sits at 2278.5  – I think I am going to make it!!

So… when we got home from the ride on Saturday, John pointed out something under the burning bush.

Oreo and Cheddar!  I hadn’t seen them in several weeks and I was hoping against hope that someone took them in.  I have been keeping an eye out at the neighbor’s property for them and hadn’t seen them.  Turns out I should have been looking a little closer under our porch.  Sigh…double sigh…

Time to suck it up and help them before they make more kittens. Anyone who wants a kitten or who knows someone who wants a kitten, please let me know. It begins…

Saturday night was S’mores time!  My parents have a nice big back yard with a fire pit.

Lizzy was happy to have lots of company:

John and I brought beverages.

This was pretty good.  Not super spicy and a fairly wheaty beer.

Roasting time!

My s’mores!

It’s funny, I really like s’mores, but I only want one because they are so rich.  I will eat more toasted marshmallows, but only one s’mores.

Today’s pink picture – this is a knitted shawl/blanket that my mother won in raffle:
