Weekends


Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments

My weekend was a full one.  We attended two festivals in our local area.  I was on the hunt for my new favorite pottery mug and did find it.  Bliss!  We had a slice of pizza and later some super healthy french fries.  I walked my feet off and was exhausted by the time we were home mid afternoon.  The weather was chilly and I was wishing for that sun to peek out.

After a quick dinner, we headed to my husband's new office to finish up filing and hanging diplomas.  We were fast and furious!  In the evening I made great progress on knitting my cardigan while watching an episode of Selfridges.

Today was Mass, and lucky for me, the baby sat right in front of me.  I can honestly say I cannot remember the sermon, I was too busy watching him bounce, drop toys for me to pick up and just delight in his happiness.  He got a little cranky near the end but over all what a well behaved baby.

I'm doing laundry and soon when I hit publish, I'll be knitting some more.

How was your weekend?

  2. Sounds like a nice but busy weekend. We babysat for the GK, went out for dinner, and went to church but got to listen to the high school choir instead of singing like we did last weekend. We watch Selfridge on Sundays here. Crazy, huh? Tomorrow I'm hosting book club for the discussion of Boys in the Boat. It was a good read. In fact I'm reading another of his books now!

  4. We went to a FUN wedding (bride Alexa who I gave a shower for in March). Although I got hit by sadness when thinking about the parents "giving away" their daughter. Our time will come for that one of these days. Have a great week! http://www.tamknots.com

  7. It sounds like fun. Good about finding your pottery. I hope you'll share a photo soon. What beautiful magnolias, are they in your garden? Ours was good a pottering one, cleaning and sorting out good to hand washing in the garden whilst the sun was shining. We did a bit of exploring and discovered an amazing walk by a lake and woods and more yellow fields it was beautiful.
    Enjoy your knitting,

  10. In one word, busy. :-) Saturday morning we went and bought a new water heater, came home, grilled burgers and then went to a wedding. Sunday morning we got up really early to take a quick hot shower so Greg could take the old (leaking) water heater out and tile underneath. Went horseback riding with the family, came back and worked on the new water heater, had teacher appreciation dinner that evening... Wish I had an extra day...

  11. Ahhh.... the joy of finding a perfect mug. =) There is so much pleasure in a perfect mug.

    Soccer games, Farmer's Market, dinner with friends, church, a little golf... finished my crochet shawl! Did swatches... no luck on gauge with any of my stash yarns that I like... bummer...

  18. Highlights: watching my son push his toy dump truck about in the garden for an hour or more!, defrosting tomatoes from last summer's garden for "fresh" bloody marys, long walks in the neighborhood, and, of course, knitting!

  19. A gorgeously sunny weekend here but surprisingly chilly. We only managed housework and a lovely long walk with the whippets. But next weekend we're hoping to head off on a couple of jaunts a little further afield.

  21. I saw the mug on instagram! I love it! It sounds like you had a lovely weekend, and I also would have a hard time concentrating if there was a baby in front of me. :)

  23. Sounds like a lovely weekend, your mug is beautiful! I really love the color, so rich. Our weekend already feels a bit hazy to me, I can't believe it! We had some good family time and the girls are now in soccer so that's been fun. And sun :) I do remember that. Have a great week!
