Long Weekending











 


We had a wonderful long weekend with time spent in the mountains, badlands, and by the river. There were also lots of moments spent fireside playing cards, games, stitching, and reading.

Thanksgiving dinner was mellow and simple, with just the four of us to feed.

I got the chance to do some sewing on Saturday, which was very nice. 

We also watched this, which I liked well enough. (I am not one to sit and watch a movie but it kinda sucked me in with the story and the Man of Steel was pretty easy on the eyes too.) 

The documentary for the weekend was Earth: The Biography. We love it and learn so much each time we watch it.

I started reading this book, which I have read before and really enjoy reading as the season shifts.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great start to the week!

Joining up with Amanda for some weekending!

  3. Is that the Bisti Badlands? I once backpacked in there alone for two nights in fall. Strange and awesome place.

    1. Yes! It is Bisti. It was so much cooler this trip so we got to hike a bit more than before. Found the most amazing petrified tree stumps. I actually thought of you when we were there because you mention your trip before. I bet the night sky there is amazing (with zero light pollution). That would be so cool to see.
