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.



Hello!  As you can see my family room is slowly getting filled.  Now some of that is mine, but the gaming computer console and the pile of books under the table are not.  Our son arrived on Friday and I've been enjoying his company immensely.

Yesterday after some crazy weather, we went to do some shopping and I crossed off another item on my list.  I am so close to being completely finished!  We had dinner out and then came home to watch Elf.  One of my favorite Christmas movies.

Today,  I've been reading  Alexander Hamilton barely making a dent.  I want to finish this book by the end of the year.  I vacillate between 'yes I can' and 'nope, no way'.  Every sentence in the book is dripping with information and cannot be read quickly (Or I have a slow reading speed..).

We had a lovely dinner of left over curry and now I'm ready to resume my reading!

Please note:

The weekends post for the next few weeks will be posted on a Monday.  Both Christmas and New Year's Day fall on a Sunday and I'll be busy with family and celebrations.


How was your weekend?

  2. I agree with Lulu, your tree is beautiful. We have had a fairly peaceful weekend, although putting up the tree was a little fraught at times... what with the cat constantly trying to climb it. We've made some sweets and watched 'The Santa Clause' this afternoon :)

  3. I love your son's pile of books and that he is making himself at home in the family room! I think I also see your sock yarn blanket so it looks like you have still retained a place to knit. Enjoy your son, reading, and the holidays!

  6. Isn't it wonderful having the kids home for the holidays. Stephen rolled into town early this evening. Yes, it makes this tiny apartment pretty crowded, but I wouldn't change it for all the tea in China.

  12. As much as I love to read history, Hamilton is not on my list. It is both long and dense! I admire your for sticking with it.

  13. My son came for an extended visit on Sunday. I love having his "mess" around the house, although I avoid looking in his bedroom at all costs. My decorating is almost finished, but my shopping is not. Enjoy the holidays and I will look forward to your Monday posts.

  15. Enjoy your celebrations! We had a slow weekend and escaped home for a couple days. Just what we needed before the busyness of the next few days kicks in. Wishing you much Joy at Christmas x

  16. Merry Christmas, my dear friend! My daughter Mary is heading home tonight with the book Hamilton in tow. I think I am going to have to approach the way you do, setting aside time each day to read it. It definitely doesn't sound like pre-bedtime reading! Our weekend was lovely, we had friends over for dinner on Saturday night and on Sunday went to another friend's house to watch the Giants play. With Mary's arrival tonight (and Michelle's on Friday) our holiday will be in full swing! xx
