Weekends


Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments 
  in the comment section with a link to your blog. 


My weekend in list form:

Snow snow snow
Adopting books from the public library book sale
Dinner out with my husband
Walks in the neighborhood
Spying deer prints
Seeing a deer rest at the edge of my woods until mid morning
Nearing the end of two knitting projects
Hoping there is enough yarn for the socks!


Enjoying a peaceful Sunday afternoon 


How was your weekend?

Winter Returns


To my delight, winter has returned.  The snow started on Wednesday late afternoon and steadily fell through out the night.  On Thursday, the "storm" left two inches but delightfully the flakes fell slowly and danced in the air.


January snow is my favorite but really any snow would be my favorite in that moment of time.  Heavy snow with large flakes that fall straight down and melts upon walking.  The frigid snow which squeaks a crunchy squeak.  Snow that never stays idle but blows in drifts and circles, as an arctic air blows wind.  Oh I love them all.


Yesterday's snow squalls were gentle, lilting, and ever so light.  While I was outside capturing the beauty I listened to the squirrels chip chip away in the woods as well as spied shadows in the distant trees of deer walking and waiting for me to leave.


I've mentioned before that when I grab my camera, Frodo dances and twirls in excitement knowing that we are going outside and we are exploring.  He stops when I stop.  I snap photos and he looks off in the distance watching and waiting for whatever is out in the woods.

Currently on the Needles


This past week has been a good knitting week overall.  I successfully re knit what I ripped out last week and divided for the armholes as I knit my way down the body of the sweater.  Once the decreasing is finished for the waist shaping, I'll be finishing the sweater in no time at all.  I get a little giddy when the armholes are set aside.  The knitting is much faster.

The Book Thief continues to be entertaining and I am enjoying the easy reading.  I finished The Scarlet Letter which was good.  However, I think if that novel was mandatory for reading while I was in high school, most of the plot would have gone over my head.  

What are you knitting and reading this week?
