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 favorite aunt treated us all to a girls only trip to NYC.  My daughter and I joined up with my Aunt, my sister, two cousins and my one cousin's two daughters and we spent three nights two days doing everything that could be squeezed in.  I'm exhausted!!

:: I rode a taxi, bus, subway, water taxi and a ferry. 
:: I saw the rockettes and the lion king (!!!)
:: I was in the Upper West side, midtown, Battery Park, SoHo and Staten island.
:: I rode through the Lincoln tunnels to get there but didn't for coming home...GPS...you're crafty
:: Time Square is too crowded
:: I loved the dogs of NYC--so many being walked by their owners.
:: I am sore from head to toe and had to take more medicines.
:: My aunt was really really happy and that made me really really happy!

I'm woefully behind on blog reading so give me a week to catch up!  I was completely blissfully unplugged.

How was your weekend??

  1. Sounds like a wonderful action packed weekend. There is nothing like spending time with family. Seeing The Lion King must have been wonderful? Did you visit any yarn shops?

    1. sadly no. I had one across the street from the hotel but they were never opened early in the morning or late at night when I was close by. Next time I go I will visit many yarn stores.

  2. I have always wanted to see the ROCKETTES!!! and I hear Lion King is amazing! So much fun.
    We went to the racetrack in suburban Arlington Heights with my fun Uncle Bill today.
    Yesterday was warm enough to sit on my porch a good portion of the day> Hoooray.

  3. I have to admit NYC has never been on my "must visit list", but the fact that you got to spend it with your daughter and family sounds wonderful to me. I can just imagine the visual overload... Have a great start into the week!

  6. Oh how wonderful...I'm glad you and your aunt are enjoying the city together. Isn't it amazing how all those museums and art galleries are by donation?!? I hope your medicine is giving you some relief- those New York blocks are huge and exhausting for walking tourists.

  7. oh it sounds like SUCH a good time! Mike and I had a whirlwind 36 hour trip to NYC last summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm glad you had fun, though I know it's probably also great to be home and really relaxing now, too.

    this weekend we gardened and watch her dance, went to the opening tailgate market and up in a hot air balloon for the first time ever- SO much fun! http://sweetpotatoclaire.blogspot.com/2015/05/weekending.html

  11. You had a very exciting weekend and you fit in all the big sights in the city. Being with family and doing all you were able to do is totally worth your exhaustion. Hope you feel good soon and the ill effects don't last long, but the memories do.

  12. Oh, wow, Karen! NYC is on my bucket list...one of these days. :) So glad you got to go! Did you happen to visit any fun yarn shops??
    My weekend was filled with helping a friend host our church's annual May Ladies' Brunch (Sat. morn.), watching the Kentucky Derby w/ my Anna, my kids piano recital (Sun. after church), and enjoying the sunny weather we were blessed with. Have a great week!

  15. I haven't been to NYC in ages...I used to habitually keep my pointy ends of my knitting needles handy in case I needed to defend myself against any subway gropers. Very effectiveness.

    Welcome home.

  16. What an adventure...what a gift!
    My weekend: gardening, 8 yarn store Yarn Crawl with friends, knitting, grocery shopping, dining out, and going to the movies (The Lady in Gold).

  25. What a wonderful weekend, Karen! I love visiting NYC, especially when going to a play is involved. Like you, I am not very crazy about Times Square, it's just too crowded to enjoy. I thought I would start sharing my weekends as well. Here is my link: www.gracednotes.com/weekends

  29. Fun fun fun! I would love to take the kids to see the Lion King play. I've heard nothing but great things about it. NY is on my list of places to visit. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

    I took the kids to see the movie Home on Saturday. Then they wanted to spend their money at the toy store, and I went back out to the theater alone to see the new Avengers movie that evening. It was amazing!
