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 started with my wireless mouse dying.  It was a good mouse, I've replaced it but it's just not the same...funny how certain little unassuming things make a huge impact on our days.  Oh and another event, my favorite tea drinking pottery mug has a chip in the lip.

Can that be fixed?  I'm guessing not.  Luckily the chip is on the opposite side of where I drink but still now the mug is not perfectly perfect.  sigh.

So with those two little sadnesses out of the way let's talk about a fun weekend!


-helping my husband on Saturday afternoon clean his office, I just say "throw it away" every five seconds and the job was finished four hours later :)
-big salad for dinner yesterday and the simpleness was delicious
-Superbowl! I don't watch the game but passively listen to it (while knitting of course)
-wings, wings, wings.  Trying a new to me recipe-fingers crossed!
-abundance of veggies and dips and fruit
-good friends coming over later today
-brownies
-chats with the kids, all is well


How was your weekend?

  1. I get it Karen and I'm sorry about your mug, I have one of those too.
    I hope your recipe turns out and you enjoy lots of knitting time during the game.
    Have fun!

  2. Sorry about your mug, my favorite one has chip too and there is a crack and I am not sure if it is just in the glaze or if it goes deeper, so I had to retire it.
    Have fun knitting tonight.

  3. Sorry about your mug Karen, I guess it is now perfectly imperfect, much like us humans :) Hope you enjoy your wings, and all that knitting. Wishing you a lovely week ahead.

  4. Hooray for kick off knitting! Best part of the game. Let us know how your wings turn out!

  5. All day wrestling on Saturday, not me, the girl's beau, then I was too tired to even knit! But I did manage to mess up the end of the hat I was trying to knit.

  6. Oh, now your mug is unique! Not like your wireless mouse, that's definitely knocked out...!

  7. LOL...everytime i need a good clearing out... i start with my husband's closet and desk (so much easier to detach from his stuff)...i hope you find a solution for your mug.

  8. My weekend was very quiet, thanks to a major snowstorm. It was just what I needed!

  9. just did a paper on wabi-sabi which embraces the imperfections...making things more interesting....your cup is now unique, more special because of that little chip. embrace it!!!

  10. Sorry about the mug and the mouse....oh I know those clean ups, I do it just the same as you, mostly I also say: 'I thought you had thrown that away during the previous clean up, why is it still here?' ;-)

    My weekend was fine, did some major life changes: on Friday I probably got a new job, on Saturday I bought a car, and on Sunday I drew and knitted my first shawl! I think that qualifies as a great weekend.

  11. oh no too bad about your mug. I had something like this happen to a fave mug of mine (I blame our farmhouse sink, it's a mug destructor!) have a good start to the week, Karen!

  12. I wonder if you could fix up your mug with dishwasher safe Mod Podge?...

    My weekend:

    Cowl knitting - finished one and started a new one in natural tones
    Scarf crocheting - in a Rowan Kidsilk Haze lilac like shade called 'Dewberry'
    Walk in the muddy woods staring longingly at the small patches of ice left over by our pathetically small snowfall on Saturday
    Roasting a chicken with lemon
    Watching Mr Selfridge

    Hope you have a happy week :)

  13. Sad about your mug! Funny how we get attached to them isn't it. Your weekend sounds like far more fun than mine - a lot of time spent sorting and chucking here too!! xx

  14. Sounds like it was the weekend for things to break. My coffee maker started acting up and we realized a part of the grinder broke. Hopefully we can order the part and get it fixed. Other than that we visited our neighbor in the hospital, took care of her dog, watched the superbowl. It all seems like a blur to be honest...

  15. Sounds like a lovely weekend, Karen. Well...except for the chip in your tea mug. I need you to come help me clean out my "office " area! We'd be done in nothing flat! :) Love the cup and saucer at the end. Those colors are so beautiful together! Our weekend was spent trying to get over some sort of a virus or bug, hence, I did not get a Weekends post done. I did do some reading and some crocheting though. :)

  16. Find yourself a new mug that tickles your fancy to replace the chipped mug. Your heart will be happy every time you see the new mug instead of loss for the old one.

  17. I am rather attached to my favorite mug(s) and have retired several (ie: moved them to the back of the cabinet) when chipped rather than tossing them. My weekend was spent on grandma duty and welcoming our second granddaughter!

  18. I can so identify with being sad about a favourite mug getting damaged. Tea just doesn't taste the same when it isn't in our favourite mug. :-)

  19. You mean your husband listens when you say "throw it out"? You do have to tell me your secret. Sorry about your mug - I don't like when that happens at all!

  20. glad for all the good things! Some of our best mugs are cracking from top to bottom... will take a picture to commemorate them once they are fully 'goners'. Glad that there are many GOOD things :)

  23. Your weekend looked like fun! :) I also listened to the Superbowl with my knitting in hand, this is the best way to listen to it. Sorry about the mug, I always dislike when stuff like that happen!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ah yes the super bowl here too...thank goodness for knitting. Salad sounds good, nice break from all the heaviness of winter food I think....had to smile about you helping your hubby, sounds familiar :)

  26. Besides a ton of laundry, I had a good weekend just because I had no obligations to go anywhere :) I'm sorry about your mug (I've been there, too), and I love that china with the leaves on it!

  29. Beautiful piano, I had a wonderful weekend with family.

  30. Very sorry about your mug. Maybe you could see your mug as "well loved" instead of "not perfectly perfect"?
