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 comments section of the blog.



Another weekend come and gone.  And we are safely into October days where the days are cooler and the nights come faster.  I love it.  Yesterday, I had the craziest idea to finish The Once and Future King by Tuesday night.  I am quite ambitious in this goal.

My other crazy idea was to finish the red scarf (which will be turned into a cowl) by Monday night.  So the imagined race is on!  I am knitting whenever I have a pocket of time and I am reading as well.  Today at the kitchen table I did both at the same time with some challenges.  So far I haven't made a knitting mistake and I'm putting a huge dent in my reading!

Call me optimistic but I think I'll make both self imposed goals :)


Yesterday we started Christmas shopping (I know!) but there was an incredible sale at a department store that helped save lots of money with their coupons.  I'm all for paying bottom prices and I've figured out the rules and exclusions of each coupon.  Ha.  I feel like I'm scamming the system.


Today was more of the same knitting and reading.  Mounds of laundry, menu planning and listing the errands for the week.  I had a few quick calls from the kids, everyone is doing well.  My allergies are slightly annoying but I'm too happy with fall being here, so I'm embracing the intermittent sore throat.


How was your weekend?

  3. Nice fallish photos, Karen. A bit of a sad weekend here as we went to a friend's memorial service yesterday; church to day and in a bit we're off to have dinner with another friend. Just finished reading The Nest. Interesting.

  4. Hot water with vinegar, cinnamon, and honey helps a sore throat. And like my mama, I take zinc once I feel a bug comin' on. The lace on that cowl looks great. What kind of pens you have there?

  5. My weekend was good, but not nearly as productive as yours! I did some knitting and reading, but definitely no Christmas shopping. I am going to follow your example and set my deadline of Tuesday night for the second fingerless glove I'm doing for some birthday knitting. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Hope you make the self imposed deadline. I don't blame you for Christmas shopping, everyone is on a budget these days so the coupons are well worth using. I managed to finish the mermaid tail so I am on a bit of a high. Take care.

  8. I'm a little bit more than halfway through my Christmas gift knitting, and have a few other gifts already purchased. I like to do things early, so when Christmastime arrives, I can enjoy it rather than freak out.

    I think you have had a lovely weekend.
