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.


How was your weekend?  Good, I hope.  Mine was a slurry of busy and fun.  I had Thanksgiving with my family, during the entire day snow fell silently and the inside felt all cozy and warm.  I spent time with my dad and step mom, my sister and her family.


These photos were taken at my dad's house.  I loved walking about and snapping the photos.  My sister and I had our outing on Friday.  We tend to shop at places that do not have lines, like yarn stores and fabric stores.  Oh believe me they are busy but as you well may know, knitters are nice!

Later that evening, more food was gobbled up along with sweets.  My aunt and my cousins joined in the meal along with their children.  The house was bursting, LOUD and we even had a Frozen singalong with my daughter playing the piano.  Like I said, loud and fun.

Once home, I decorated, I cleaned, and I'm still doing the laundry.  Each kid is back in their apartment, Frodo is recovering from his kennel stay (under the ottoman) and I'm nursing a cup of tea with Christmas lights twinkling.


How was your weekend?

  3. Your weekend sounds delightful, Karen. I LOVE the picture of the wagon that you took at your Dad's. Poor Frodo...those kennel visits always need recuperating from. Our granddog is the same way. We had an extremely quiet weekend....http://jesusweadorethee.blogspot.com/2014/11/weekending_30.html

  6. oh lovely photos and it sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was good too thanks. It was grey and dull on Saturday and I wasn't feeling very good so indulged in lots of reading by the fire whilst Ahmad busily cut up a months supply of wood. Sunday I was back to my energetic self and we did lots of painting on sunday. It was a good one.
    Have a good week,
