Cheers to the Weekend 11.9.18

I am already mourning the fading of the fall colors, but frankly I like like cold weather, though I prefer cold and clear to the rain. I’m enjoying my son’s delight in the way his breath fogs in the morning and dressing like a giant lump of sweater while it’s crisp out. We’re in for a chilly weekend, but we’ve got blankets (I just bought this one) and tea and candles at the ready to cozy in. Plus, Saturday means our weekly early morning coffee date, and Sunday is bringing some family from out of town for a quick visit, both of which I’m looking forward to. What are you guys up to this weekend?
