Happiness is...a weekend full of accomplishment and bits of unexpected pleasure.

It's been a busy couple of days.  Here's just a snippet of what filled my time:

  • A walk around the neighborhood enjoying the gorgeous weather and this view

  • Finishing this book (review to come)
  • A Twilight movie marathon with some super fun friends
  • Discovering that my shoes look perfectly at home among the fallen leaves

  • Completing a 5K with my roommates to help out a local high school
  • Making this sweet potato pie (and a pumpkin ice cream pie which tasted divine but was not beautiful) in honor of Pie Day* on Sunday

  • Listening to this album while getting started on making some Christmas gifts (details and updates of the projects to follow)
  • Breaking out the exercise books and sitting down to the keyboard after a long absence
  • Slowly working on the NaNoWriMo project....current word count 5863
All in all, a highly eventful weekend.  How was yours?

*My musically inclined friend, K, has made a yearly tradition out of Pie Day. Since by the end of Thanksgiving Dinner one's stomach is generally so full of turkey and stuffing and so forth that the requisite pumpkin pie is almost torture to squeeze in, and therefore is hardly enjoyed to its fullest, the pie is now given its own day. Generally falling on the Sunday before Thanksgiving one and all are invited to bring and/or sample the smorgasbord of pies without having previously gorged on a week's worth of food in the space of an hour or so. Last night's celebration was again a success filled with pumpkin, pecan, pear cranberry, mini key lime, chocolate, peanut butter, peach, and peanut butter raspberry with chocolate ganache, just to name a few! Delicious!
