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.


I had a fun weekend visiting family in London, Ontario.  While up there we went to Grand Bend and enjoyed a very brisk (blustery) wind and the end of a tourist season.  Nearly all of the shops were closed for the season and yet I had fun being on the sidewalks and boardwalk taking in the sights and sounds.

I do love a beach!  We visited family, ate out for lunches and dinners, laughed some and enjoyed each other's company.  I'm now home (sweet home).  I had an internet break and missed checking in with all of you.  Hopefully this week I'll be all caught up!


There was:

french fries :: knitting in the car :: knitting whenever :: finishing a book :: holding a grand nephew :: meeting a new puppy who was wiggly and made me miss Frodo :: beautiful Sunday driving :: 

How was your weekend?

If you are in the southeast, I do hope you are not experiencing any flooding!!

  3. I'm from London, Ontario - I can't believe you were here today! :-) It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, so did I. Grand Bend is so beautiful. There was for me: a surprise party for a lovely friend, stitching, lots of coffee, knitting, reading, lovely family time and more knitting.

  17. Glad you had such a nice weekend! Our weekend started fall break for the girls and me. :-) Hannah was at her friends birthday party and Nadia spent the night(s) with friends. Saturday started of with a 7 mile walk with a friend for me and later on good friends and (lots of) football. It was cool, the windows were open, roast in the oven, new knitting on the needles and "The Blacklist" on Netflix. Life is good. :-)

  18. Sounds like a fun and creative weekend. Enjoying the fall colors here in Montucky :)

  19. Sounds like a nice weekend even though the shops were closed. I'm not a big shopper, so that wouldn't have bothered me, either. The weather here has been gorgeous (makes me feel a little guilty considering Tracey's weather), yet we filled our weekend with family time, baking, stacking firewood, hiking, worship, and some yummy eats. :)

  24. So nice to see you are still blogging my friend! After a year long hiatus, I am jumping back into the blogging world and finding the everyone is still going strong. I always enjoy your photos along with your knitting projects. I am a "Wanna Be Knitter" and struggle with it. Lately, I have explored making jewelry, and am finding that it is a hobby that better suits me! I still love knitting and am envious of all the wonderful things you churn out!
