Weekends


Hello!  How was your weekend?  Did you have a massive heat wave only to have the weather change abruptly to some chilly temps.  I've been switching the house from heat - AC - heat -  AC.  Crazy but true.

I had a delightful weekend and truthfully, it's still going strong.  Our son is still here, he leaves tomorrow morning.  On Friday we did some serious clothes shopping and I picked up a few more tees and a couple of capri pants (so comfy and so forgiving).   I happened to also be in two (TWO) bicycle shops and the key to not being bored out of my mind is to have a novel.

I finished my book, The Handmaid's Tale, and I highly recommend it.  Sure, it's thought provoking just like 1984 by George Orwell but in a good kind of way (if there is a good way??).  I thought about how would I survive, would I resist or would I submit?  I'm kind of wimpy so I think I would just do what I had to do to survive.  Maybe I'd be friends with the resistance and wistfully wish I was more like them.

I am thankful that I am free and live a great life.

Yesterday, we had a slow morning and in the afternoon, we walked though a town wide garage sale.  I didn't buy anything but I enjoyed being in the cool weather and just watching people.  I was engaged completely so I forgot to take some photos.  Isn't that always the case?



Last but not least was today.  I went to early 7:30 Mass to welcome in the Sunday.  The laundry is finished and dinner was homemade pizza.  Soon I'll return to my knitting and work some more on my sweater.  By the way, I'm a tad worried I might not have enough yarn....stay tuned!

How was your weekend?  I'd love to know!

  1. My weekend was similar - cold, hot, cold again. But it was wonderful to see some sunshine again.

  3. Yesterday rain and today sunshine but cool which is perfect.Yesterday afternoon I sewed some on a quilt. Today we went to 9:00 church, picked up a latte on the way home. I read the paper, cast on some fingerless mitts and puttered around in the yard. I made a simple supper of scrambled eggs with stir fried veggies and cut up some fresh berries. Three quarter length sleeves on that sweater?

  4. It was cold and rainy here. Much crafting was done. Some decluttering. A perfectly nice weekend!

  5. That sounds fun, perusing a whole bunch of garage sales. Made something for Jellybean today which consumed my late morning to late afternoon. Heating up leftovers from yesterday's family luncheon. I'm hungry and we're hot; 87° today and tomorrow. Yesterday was like 90. I wish we'd cool down. We'll go down to 70's after Monday; I'm looking forward to that.

  8. Is your contingency plan in place in case you lose the yarn-chicken game? It seems as soon as I have a solid plan figured out, enough yarn miraculously appears!!! So glad it was a great visit with Jordan!!! And enjoy the cooler temps....wishing you could whoosh a few degrees cooler down here!!! I think summer is here to stay. Drat.

  11. Our weather has been up & down too. 90's on Friday, barely 60 today. As for having to visit 2 bike stores, wow! You deserve a medal! My husband drags me to lumber stores to look at plywood. Not the somewhat fun/interesting stuff like kitchen designs or storage containers..... plywood. We have to stand there while he compares one sheet to another. It's a miracle we've stayed married! :) Wishing you all the best with that game of yarn chicken!

  12. We had a lovely weekend as well! Rob finished replacing the brick patio and we loved being able to sit out and enjoy our new space. : ) On Sunday we went out for a nice long hike and had lunch at our favorite hot dog place. I love relaxing weekends like these, don't you?

    I will definitely have to check out The Handmaid's Tale! xx

  13. we're having that crazy kind of weather too.
    I am watching the show.. and it is so messed up and yes so glad to be free.

  14. crazy weather here, too - but for sure out of the "heat" territory. just not always having to run the air, which, for May is a good thing! I loved The Handmaid's Tale but didn't think I was up for seeing it on the screen. I'm sure I'd submit, but like you, I'd rather be a resister!

  15. our thermostat has been much the same! :) I found the Handmaid's Tale disturbing. Yes, I am thankful that we are free but what a strange story!

  16. Hope your yarn holds out! Sounds like a lovely weekend. Our temps were up and down too. It's crazy! One day all the windows and doors are open, the next I've turned on the heat.

  17. Aw, the thaw. Thank goodness. Looks like you will be done with that sweater in no time! Can't wait to see, and I hope the yarn holds out. Too much stress for me.

  18. My weekend was insanely busy, but in a good way. It sounds like we are having much the same weather as you. It was in the 90's here last week, but by the end of the weekend, it was in the 50's. Spring is quite fickle in NY, and I am used to that.

    I sure hope you have enough yarn for your sweater. I actually ran out of yarn I was using to crochet a doily (my first!!), but luckily, the yarn store that I use, had another skein. :-)
