unraveled wednesday | 10.9.19 …



Today goes down in the record books as one of those rare autumn days: perfect, perfect, perfect! A friend and I spent several hours at Marjorie Merriweather Post’s Hillwood Estate, tucked away in NW Washington DC. We went to see the exhibit of famed Life Magazine photographer, Alfred Eisenstaedt,  followed by:

  • a tasty lunch in the Merriweather Café;
  • a walk on the grounds, especially the Japanese Gardens and
  • a stop in the gift shop, of course. I needed a birthday present and found a few somethings.

On the first of the month, the annual and last LOAD Challenge – a daily memory keeping  event – began; I also joined Michelle GD’s Get It Down month long journaling event. The two have basically commandereed my attention and energy; consequently, I’ve not done much knitting, quilting or unraveling; I should be getting back on track this weekend. I did receive my copy of Just Mercy and look forward to joining Read With Us .

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday!

  1. Hillwood Estate looks beautiful and it sounds like you had a wonderful day! I’m so glad you are going to Read Just Mercy with us!


  2. I am excited that you are reading the book with me! And, what a glorious place! Also… I think Michelle’s new offering sounded perfect for you! I hope that you have a productive month!


  3. I too, am taking Michelle’s class, and am enjoying it. I read Just Mercy last year. It’s a powerful book. Your photograph is wonderful and your day sounds delightful.


  4. Honore, that photo of the water is just amazing. Nice job!! Your NATS are amazing so far. Two near perfect starting pitchers. IF anyone can put down those Cardinals it looks like your team can! not an easy feat. Somehow the every successful Jave Molina’s bat has gone cold!


  5. What a lovely day … sounds like you’re going to have a lovely month, too (and I’m sure Norman must be Delighted about the Nets!! we are 🙂


  6. There is something wonderfully tranquil and enduring about Japanese gardens, which your photo captures beautifully. Hoping that you are enjoying Michele’s class (and sad that I’ve missed it).
