This was the first weekend in ages that we got to stay home and do some more Southern Illinois exploring. As always, I documented our weekend with my trusty iPhone.
On Friday, we tried out a Thai restaurant we'd never been to (yum!), heard some excellent live music at the Carbondale Friday Night Fair, and had a nightcap at Walker's Bluff (the new tasting room is awesome!)
We found this awesome looking caterpillar munching away on our tomato plant. It's amazing how well camouflaged it was amongst the leaves!
We did a little walking in downtown Carbondale on Saturday. Trains still run right through downtown. We got caught by this one for a time.
The weather this weekend was incredible! We took advantage of it and did some hiking in the state park.
I tried out the new panorama feature that came along with the recent iPhone iOS 6 update.
I'm just enamored with autumn light. It has such a distinct, crisp quality at this time of year.
Lastly, we cooked! (Man, my oven needs cleaning! Ick!) Matt made homemade biscuits complete with lard and bacon drippings. (Yum!) I tried out 2 Pinterest recipes. Crockpot Apple Pie Oatmeal for breakfast and turkey sausage, kale and bean soup for dinner. (Double yum!)
How was your weekend? Do share!
