Weekends


Our weekend started off with saving this little frog from the pool, although how much saving he needed is questionable he seemed quite happy to stay in the shallow end and swim around.  My son and I tried to get a photo of him out of the pool in hands but the frog was very camera shy!  

Saturday morning I was lucky to sit early in the morning on the patio and knit on my cardigan.  It was breezy and not hot.....yet. My husband and I then took a drive to the shops and I managed to purchase an anniversary present for my in-laws.  We also had a really delicious dinner at home!  Chicken on the grill with gnocchi and basil pesto (I will not go into details of picking basil and 'ahem' pepper leaves, I kinda got carried away out there).....yep, the basil was from the garden-----YUM!

Sunday we went to church and later in the afternoon I went to Sit and Knit at a local coffee shop.  We meet two times a month, however summer is hit and miss with everyone's travel schedules. It is so nice to have two hours carved out of my day for knitting and talking!  Dinner was burgers on the grill, french fries (baked) and a vegetable tray.

The weekend was so relaxing!  How was yours?

  3. Good food, shopping, knitting and a frog... The perfect weekend. Of course it was the frog that put it over the top. Who doesn't love frogs?

  4. This reminds me of my friend's cousins, who have a turtle that lives in their pool. :)
