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 was filled with family and food.  I am still stuffed from the goodies and treats that were served over the weekend.  In celebration of list making my weekend contained:

-potato salad, chicken, asparagus!, green beans, lots and lots of homemade hummus, sugar cookies, lemon cake, pound cake...

-being with family:  our son, my sister and her family, my nephew and his wife, my favorite aunt and my cousins and my cousin's family.  All good.

-Easter vigil service in a little chapel

-spending the day with my sister, buying----more yarn---and having a lovely lunch out

-beautiful weather, sitting outside on Easter Sunday..unheard of in March but such a delight!

how was your weekend??

I hope to get caught up with all of your blogs over the next few days, these holidays push my screen time to the back burner, I'm thrilled that my weekend was filled to the brim with goodness.

  9. as you had a lovely Easter! Ours was a bit too quiet. Cloudy and rainy but we got a walk in early in the morning. I succeeded with a lace sock knit this weekend. Only one made, but it was a good result.
    Weight watchers kept me from enjoying any chocolates. I had a few jelly beans. 36 pounds down, 6 to go and Im full steam ahead. GOtta finish!

  17. What a lovely weekend you had Karen ! Easter was spent in the morning with my in-laws and followed by my Dad coming to our house in the afternoon for dinner. It was strange not having my Mom with us for dinner but having my Dad was priceless beyond words.

  19. Lucky you, spending the Easter weekend with family! We had a very busy weekend. Hannah celebrated her 18th birthday with friends on Saturday, which meant getting ready to have a bunch of "kids" at the house. Hamburgers, hot dogs, snacks, cake, s'mores, bonfire ... By the time the last one's left (midnight), I was exhausted. Sunday we took the birthday girl out to eat and to the movies. It was a good weekend.

  20. Sounds like a lovely weekend. We had a busy one, taking my elderly parents to Chicago for the weekend to celebrate my Mom's 80th birthday. It was a success, but not very restful!

  21. Sounds like a pretty fantastic Easter weekend.

    Your photo is a perfect depiction of the beginning of spring. When we lived up in Penna., I remember waiting for those first little buds to make an appearance.

  24. Sounds just lovely Karen. It was a wonderful Easter weekend here too. Lots of good times, meeting new people, and unfortunately, a sick little man (who is feeling better this morning).

    Hope you have a great week!
