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 quite nice, especially yesterday where nothing happened.  Just lots of reading and lots of knitting.  Later in the evening having friends over for a fun dinner.  We talked and caught up with family news.  I served grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and a spinach salad (yum).



Today was church (of course) and this afternoon we attended a University graduate student function where my husband was the speaker and a delicious luncheon was served.
 

right before showtime!
How was your weekend?  I didn't mention the super hot weather we are having because I am boycotting it.  I've decided to quit summer and each night I go to sleep I'm one day closer to fall.

  9. Your outfit is so cute! You live in the greater Pittsburgh area, right? Or somewhere in Western PA? I do and I am LOVING this unseasonably hot weather! lol. I just heard that we are also supposed to have an unseasonably hot fall this year too. I was really excited about that. I love summer weather.

  14. Karen, your weekend sounds perfect! We spent it on Cape Cod, visiting old friends of ours. It was just what the doctor ordered. I am joining you in your boycott of summer, autumn cannot come soon enough for me! : )

  15. I will tell him, Karen. He was very happy. My dad likes to be the center of attention; he's a social butterfly.

  16. First, are those phlox? Love! And they always smell so good.

    Second, what's the policy on knitting in church? Is that a no-go (considered rude and such), or is that an option? I've been considering this for a while now... Wondering how that might work.

    1. yes it is phlox.

      the catholic church frowns upon knitting (it's not a rule but I can only imagine the dirty look I would get from our priest...I do sit up front though)
