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 somewhat relaxing, slow and purposeful.

-watched another two episodes of Dr. Who
-started a new knitting project because of peer pressure (steph!)
-knitting and unknitting that project, making rookie mistakes
-celebrating our daughter's boyfriend's birthday and yes there was cake involved
-sinking into two walks a day once again with the weather cooperating
-rainy days yielded to blue skies
-catching the angle of the summer sun midday throughout the house
-chatting with our son daily, listening to his days and the meals he's creating or not creating.  Loving that I was lucky to be there last weekend and can imagine him in his town, on his campus
-Frodo was stung by a wasp and his yelp was heard around the yard.  Once he recovered,he went right back to the scene of the crime to attack his attackers.  Silly boy!

-lastly, I received a delightful package all the way from Australia from Monique, (Thank you!) Once again I am amazed at how this blogging community unites us as friends no matter the distance.


How was your weekend?  Please share and visit with others in the comments.

  3. I love that blue, blue sky as it usually means lowered humidity and cooler temps. I'm ready for fall, or would at least welcome a crisp 60 degree day!

    This blogging world is amazing it's it? It's so nice to that it makes the world a little smaller. I adore your gifts.

    1. p.s. for some reason your blog is not accepting people's links as...well...active links. they are just text. at least that is how it is form my computer.....

    2. I think blogger doesn't allow hyperlinking. And you have to do some special coding to bypass it....But I'll look into it to make sure :)

  14. Weekends are fun, aren't they? We visited with Stella and Max and enjoyed the park and Farmers' Market on Saturday, and then spent a lot of yesterday working in the yard, chasing weeds.

    1. chasing weeds is never ending at times. We heavily mulched and that has helped here.
