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 was busy with a full house since both kids were home.  In favor of the list making, here's the weekend summary:

-corn on the cob with burgers and a spinach feta pasta salad
-s'mores on the grill (while pretending the grill is a campfire)
-thinking about the s'mores was a happy two day event for me
-a beautiful cold front blew through the area and I enjoyed a jacket wearing walk
-apartment searching for my daughter is over-once the application is filled out and a deposit is made
-walking twice a day and stopping to pick raspberries because they are sweet
-knitting
-finishing a challenging sudoku that lasted three days


Today will be the laundry, cleaning, menu planning for the week, and hopefully I will see my coffee table once more.



How was your weekend?  

Please share in the comments section and visit with new friends and old friends while you are there.

  10. Sounds like you had a good, enjoyable weekend. Ours has been a busy one, but filled with good things. Lots of good food from the grill, day trips that were fun and easy, cooler nights (got to use my shawl one night sitting outside)... Now we're going to enjoy the last 5 days with my mom here before things will be back to "normal". :-)

  23. So funny how you always mention your coffee table when your kids are home...he.he. Sounds like a lovely weekend with your family. I feel like my house will have a never ending laundry pile with 4 kids....

    1. the table measures the chaos! now it's tidy for the most part (son is still here for the summer, hence he has piles).

  24. Your weekend was the opposite of mine. I was alone for much of it, but your weekend of fun, family, food and laughter is a grand way to spend a Holiday.

  28. Oh, I tried so hard to read those book jackets! Sounds like you had a great weekend; we did, too, but can't believe that July 4th is over..... We forgot the smores. Oh well, that's a good excuse for another picnic, right?

  29. What a wonderful weekend! I love those rare cool(er) summer days when grilling and enjoying the outdoors aren't a sweltering chore!

  30. Those apricots! So totally gorgeous! And congrats on the apartment finding! I always feel like moving is such a great test of faith, or if not a test, at least an opportunity to trust:)

  31. Had to giggle about your coffee table comment. I love it...
