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.





Well, hello!

Let's just say I had to work hard at getting this post up.  Why is it when I sit in front of the computer I have technical difficulties?  Sigh.  It seems to be tiny voices saying "buy a new computer" and I keep ignoring that tiny voice.

How was your weekend?

Here is my summary:

: clouds giving way to blue skies, then sunshine! :
: a day out at a craft festival in a neighboring town over :
: river watching :
: relaxing and knitting :
: phone calls and texts from the kids today :
: knitting with a dear friend today:
: reminiscing about being a mom :
: thinking of my mom :
: pizza on Friday night, home made of course :
: dinner out with my husband to honor Mother's day :)

How was your weekend?

Happy Mother's day to all of you who are celebrating or remembering!!

    1. I learned smocking many years ago, if I recall, I enjoyed learning but it wasn't a passion....but then it was long ago. So glad you joined in!

  3. Happy Mama's Day, Karen. A bit busy yesterday as the 8 year old had her BFF over here for the first time. Today is a go-with-the-flow kind of day.

  7. Happy Mother's Day! I love the end of your post. Yes, today is a day for celebrating and remembering. Celebrating being a mother and watching my daughter be a mother while remembering my Mom and Grandmothers for how they loved me and enriched my life.

  9. Sounds like you had a good day. We have already celebrated Mothers Day here in the UK in March, but so nice to sit back and watch my girls been Mamas and spend time with my own sweet Mama anytime of the year. Take care.

  11. Those lilacs look lovely! I've planted a lilac bush several years ago and it has yet to bloom... :-( Our weekend was wonderful. I got to go to an Avett brother's concert Friday evening, Hannah had senior prom on Saturday, Nadia had a friend spend the weekend, we got things ready for my mom's upcoming visit, I got spoiled on Sunday... Feeling very blessed!

  12. Aww knitting with your feet up, I did that too! I visited my husbands family and then we went to visit my sweet mom in the nursing home. My adult kids treated me so well. The card my son wrote to me was so sweet!

    1. cell phones and skype are the two greatest inventions when it comes to loving our children who live far away.

  16. We had a full weekend.. most of it had nothing to do with Mother's Day.. that was more of an after thought. We had family and friends over and there was much entertaining.. food and laughs.
