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.


How was your weekend?  Mine was wonderfully restful and calm.  While I'm all for weekends with family and celebrations like last weekend, I savor the quiet "boring" ones.  We only ventured out for Saturday evening Mass this weekend.


I finished reading another book, working on tidying up the house and clean some rooms.  Menu plans were sketched out.  We took our daily walks with Frodo.  I love the nakedness of the trees and while it looks like winter, the birds were tweeting and calling to each other.  A soft sign of approaching another season.

 I quickly did laundry yesterday so I could enjoy the afternoon knitting and starting my fox softie kit.

  2. I love your bulbs in the teacup and will look forward to seeing your fox (and your epic sock yarn blanket someday). What a lovely weekend!

  5. Your home decorations are lovely. What great ambiance they make.
    And I usually knitted tighter on my bamboo DPN's. I think I've relaxed because I've broken one 0 of that set, I broke a green wood one of a set I had picked up last summer in Seattle, and one of the birch ones I broke too. I have to rethink how many sts I should CO because my gauge is affected and I don't really want to buy 00's.

  6. Sometimes these are just the best weekends of all. And, yes - Sherman and I love hearing the birds in the morning!

  7. You sound happy with your weekend! Im glad. My saturday was great...we went to watch something new: a horse/rider barrel racing competition about an hour away. Fascinating! Then out to a new favorite spot for a quick dinner. SUnday, I cried. Son let us know he is staying in Mexico even longer. It is all good for him..but this mama wants him back!

  8. Sometimes a lazy boring weekend is exactly what you need.. we don't have many lazy ones even if they are boring ones.. but when one rolls around I embrace it wholeheartedly.

  9. I love the quiet weekends, too. This past weekend was spending time with family and working like a crazy person to finish a quilt.

  10. Our weekend was a quiet one as well, Karen. Like you, we needed it after the busy weekend we'd had last week. Both of us did a lot of reading, some napping. We did enjoy dinner at our friends' on Saturday night and on Sunday we, my brother and his family took our mom out for a birthday lunch.

    ...Reading this, I realize that it doesn't sound quiet at all! : ) But it really was!

  11. I love the boring weekends also. I want to know how you get your Christmas cactus to bloom. Mine haven't bloomed in several years. They may need to be repotted.

  12. Restful, I was actually able to accomplish a few things on my To-Do list. I also found the weekend inspiring, looking forward to see awesome empowering women this year. -Sierra

  13. Such beautiful and serene photos, Karen! Loved every one. Our weekend was quiet, too... I was ready for the rest after having spent the week with the grandsons. LOL! Finished my Big Easy shawl and picked up the Decemberist I started last month. Hope you have a wonderful week. blessings ~ tanna

  14. I love the boring weekends. Ours was quite rainy & I passed the time purging craft books from the shelves. I haven't cross stitched in years & really don't need 68 cross stitch books. Now, I just need to get them out of the house & taken to the used book store before I decide that maybe I do need them after all.

    Is that a 10-stitch blanket in that last photo? It's beautiful!

  15. Such lovely photographs! I must say I love slow and simple weekends, everyone should have one every so often ;)
