my aunt stitched me this years ago

Well, hello there!  I thought I'd share with you the CLEAN counter and coffee table, because it "ain't" gonna to look like that shortly.  My son is arriving later today and my daughter Tuesday night.



My weekend was:

quiet and slow ::  I added rows to the scrap blanket::  ate many left overs and created room in the refrigerator :: enjoyed daily walks :: went to Mass :: gearing up with the Christmas music at full volume :: started a knit for me :: finished a knit :: made chocolate chip cookies with nuts :: dinner out  ::  finished a book and started a new one :: enjoying a subscription to Magnificat (recommended by Jen, thank you!) ::



How was your weekend?

  1. Wonderful pictures, yeah I clean and things dont stay that way very long as I have a 2 1/2 yr old living with us, lol. It has been spent decluttering and cross stitching.

  7. Sounds like a lovely weekend Karen, especially the chocolate chip cookies and all that knitting. I started a new knit too, not for me though, for the little man. Enjoy having your kiddos home :)

  12. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! I have Christmas music playing right now, I love it all! I've been enjoying my subscription to Magnificat for about a year, glad you enjoy it too!

  13. I'm laughing about your picture of your clean kitchen. It's like that here, too. I think I am doing things backwards. I clean everything before various kids show up for a visit, but within five minutes of them coming through the door it looks like a wind storm blew through the house. Especially the kitchen. I think it might be better to do the heavy duty cleaning after they leave!

  14. your home looks so inviting! and oh how I LOVE clean kitchen counters, even if they are always short-lived. I know you must be looking forward to having your kids home with you this week- hope you have a lovely time!
    (I'm starting with the music already, too~ feeling very ready to celebrate the season)
