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.



This weekend I

-said "goodbye" to Hilton Head, the beach, sun and sand
-said "hello" to my house (love being home!!)
-road in the car forever because we live a very far way from Hilton Head
-wasn't cranky in the car because I was going home :)
(yes, I was cranky on the way down....)
-avoided some mysterious bug or food illness that happened to my husband-phew!
-told him what to eat when recovering-switching seamlessly into mother mode
-face a pile of bills, receipts, and laundry
-will be grocery shopping and going to Mass
-will be enjoying the last day of the family being all together
-will start sifting through the photos to share 

How was your weekend?

Please share your weekend link in the comments and if you can visit the others :)  I've met some "new" friends and love seeing snippets of their days.

Also, I am very behind in reading all of your blogs, I'm doing my best to catch up this week :)

  1. That sounds lovely, Karen! I am always less grumpy on car journeys on the way home too :)
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend and arriving home. I hope your hubby is feeling better now!

  2. This weekend has been all about the campaign for Scottish Independence. We had a ball, meeting loads of new people and dancing in the rain. x

  3. Whenever we got a chance (when it wasn't raining that is) we worked on projects outside. Trying to get the garden and the house ready for company. :-)

  4. I'm behind in replying, but wanted to say how great I think it is that you and Tracey met! I had the privilege of having coffee with Kay Gardiner of MDK awhile back, and that was an incredible experience. I will start following Clover--thanks!

  5. I am so thankful you made it home safely, I was thinking of you yesterday. I'm so sorry about your husband, that's terrible. Really there is no place like home is there? Karen, I am so happy you and I had some time to sit together and talk, you are exactly like I knew you would be and I am blessed to call you my friend. Enjoy being home and loving on Frodo.

  10. Just working around the farm this weekend. Got my last raised be planted. I did sit down and watch a Youtube video and practiced the knit stitch. Is there another tutorial that you recommend? It is not easy for me, even though I crochet, but I think once I get the hang of it I will do alright. maybe some wooden needles. :)
    Went to church this morning and resting this afternoon.

    1. I will have to research that. Have you check a basic learning how to knit book along with youtube? Maybe someone here will have a go to book recommendation. Also see if you can find a knitting group (at a library perhaps) are you on ravelry? you could see if your area has a group and find out about the meeting times.

      wooden needles are very very good for beginning and 100% wool is very forgiving and springy to learn on. You can always rip out what you have practiced and knit something else.

      making a simple garter stitch scarf (knit every row) (cast on about 40 stitches with worsted weight) will perfect the knit stitch :)

    here.

    I always LOVE to return home. I get nervous leaving my home but I'm much better than I used to be.

    Worked Saturday evening in the NICU. Babeis babies little babies all around. Lots of beeps alarms and hustling to keep little ones breathing….
    such is the life of a NICU nurse.

    TOday: Relaxing Re charging and KNITTING next

  13. Karen, so glad to know that coming home doesn't make you cranky ...I'm like you, always happy to come home...and isn't it amazing how we can so easily change into "mother mode"? Hope you will be able to share some pics from your week at Hilton Head!

  15. Oh, I love Hilton Head! We went there on a family trip when I was a kid, and I have only the happiest memories of it! Glad you are enjoying being back home too! Eric just got back froma week in Sweden on Friday, so we had a low-key weekend at home, but managed to fit in a trip to the pool, which was lovely:)

  16. I'm glad that you are back home, safe and sound Karen and that you missed out on the bug. It makes going worthwhile if only to come back home. I hope your poor husband is feeling much better now.

    At last I managing to join the party! I've been wanting too ever since you first hosted. Our weekend was a bit of away but mostly home...a good mix.

  18. no place like home!!! I feel like making one of those embroidery samplers and hanging it above my suitcases which seem to be always out and ready to be packed, which is really saying something for this person who lives with a bit of wanderlust!!! So glad you are tucked safely (and healthily) at home for awhile. I'll be joining you eventually this summer, just not for a couple weeks yet!!!! Thanks for hosting the weekending group!!!!

  25. Well, that post disappeared? Your photo made me want to head to the beach on our side of the world. Hilton Head looks like a fun spot to visit, but there's nothing quite like coming home to your own bed, is there? Hope you got some car knitting done!
