Weekends


My weekend happened to be a non traveling weekend.  It was a stay at home weekend which was just what I needed.  I enjoyed very lovely breezy afternoons on the back patio reading my book or knitting on some projects.  Saturday morning was coffee on the patio with my husband just talking about everything and nothing at the same time.

I took a walk with Frodo and the family down the dirt road that is now completely shaded with trees.  All of the lilies are in bloom-a beautiful sight.

Today is filled with loads and loads of laundry.  Moving the sewing machine into my daughter's room so she can craft like crazy AND the mess involved stays in one room (brilliant!).  My guest room can stay tidy for future visitors.  Hear that sis???

Frodo has found a teeny tiny gap in the fence, so my husband is securing the compound.  I have to admit that Frodo is brilliant, he continues to find little crevices.  He definitely sees the glass half full :)  Gotta love that in a dog.

  7. Stay at home weekends are always a blessing! I love those lilies. I've been spotting them around me on neighbor's yarns and along fence lines. I'd love to be able to plant some along our fence - that and some Russian Sage.

  8. Frodo does keep you on your toes with that fence, doesn't he!

  9. I love your lilies! Our dog Cooper finds every niche and crack in the "compound" he possibly can. We don't have a fence, but he knows where he should be, and still ignores it. Have a great week!

  13. Your fight with Frodo sounds like our battle between our horses and I in trying to contain them (http://www.onlyinlouisianas.com/2011/07/man-vs-beast.html).....it is never ending! Why are animals so smart? Please share some of your daughter's crafting accomplishments...we would love to see them. If she is half as talented as you they are surely awesome! I need a stay-at-home weekend. The next two will be on-the-go for me so it will be a while. The older I get, the more I just want to be at home!
