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 had some really good mail!  Ine from a picture book mind blog sent me some sock scraps and lots of little goodies.  Some tea, some photo cards and a lovely hand drawn card, thank you Ine!!

Also our daughter and fiance came for the weekend for a reception food tasting.  My the tasting was more like a meal and we left with most of our decisions made.  The facility is lovely and I am confident that come July the wedding is going to be a beautiful event.

There was some mindless bookstore perusing, book flipping and enjoying being with like minded people as they look and discuss.  I sort of ease drop and listen in on the discussions.  I sometimes agree and sometimes have no clue what they are talking about.  You can't listen for long, just a slow walk by listen.

Today was Mass and receiving palms on Palm Sunday, then a homemade brunch with everyone at home.  I ate one too many chocolate chip cookies over the weekend, so today for dinner I had a salad.  Sometimes that negates the overdose of sugar.

Tonight is tea, knitting and relaxing.




How was your weekend?

  2. Your sock blanket is really taking shape and I think it's lovely that people are sending you their sock yarn scraps. The kindness of knitters!! We have had a quiet weekend spent mostly at home. The only times I left the house was for (yet another) Lowe's trip and for a quick run with Hannah. Other than that it was lots of reading and knitting.
