This weekend was a relaxing one filled with:

-rosemary olive oil bread (bought and so good!)
-dinner with friends
-shrimp on the grill with roasted vegetables
-lazy slow mornings and phone calls with the kids
-knitting knitting and more knitting
-finishing up watching Hatfields and McCoys which was good.
-watching most of it through my fingers-remember I'm a PG rated girl and violence is not fun for me.
-looking forward to watching Pride and Prejudice knowing it will be a war of witty words :)
-very overcast days because the remnants of Isaac are arriving

how was your weekend?

  1. Sounds like my ideal weekend, I think I need to come visit! I am a sucker for Pride and Prejudice witty words. Your photo reminds me of our road, only with gum trees thrown in the mix of greenery. Jacinta

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! A combination of great company and quiet times :-)

  3. Sounds like a perfect one. I haven't heard of Hatfields and McCoys but love Westerns...I think it's the wooden houses but sounds like this one may be a bit out of my comfort zone too.

    Enjoy Pride and Prejudice you can't beat an Austin classic.

    Have fun,

  4. I always love reading about your weekends. They evoke such a feeling of enjoyment.

  5. While I loved Hatfields and McCoys I was surprised by all the violence and really, I came away with such a feeling of sadness. Such a waste of so many lives and so much hate. :(
    Now I must see if I can find a recipe for rosemary olive oil bread, that sounds good. I gave up wheat for most of the summer, but lately have felt the cravings for warm baked bread!

  6. Personally I like the cupcake part of your weekend.

  7. we are finally seeing some sunshine today...a nice change of pace :) your weekend sounds lovely - hope you stay dry!

  8. Rosemary bread and knitting... Yum! Enjoy your rainy days, those are the best sometimes!

  9. That does sound like a relaxing weekend! We have thoroughly enjoyed our last weekend of summer, tomorrow we officially have a Kindergartner on our hands :) And now you have me craving cupcakes and Pride and Prejudice! Have a wonderful week!

  10. Mmmmm....it's been a long time since I've had shrimp on the grill. Delicious. Sounds like an excellent weekend!

  11. your weekends making me hungry. I too am a PG rated kinda gal! If I am ever persuaded to watch a horrer film (very rare) I have to sleep with the light on for a few nights!

  12. Sounds like the perfect weekend. Glad you enjoyed it.

  13. Sounds like a lovely weekend :) I am also very much a PG girl, esp when DH is working nights.

  14. Sounds nice and relaxing for you this weekend! The shrimp on the grill part makes my mouth water :)

  15. Ahhh, looks and sounds blissfully relaxing...and delicious! A Pride and Prejudice mini-series ~ now that is tempting. I'm just rounding out my Jane Eyre obsession (picked up Gemma Hardy at the library on Friday!) but may need to transition to Ms. Bennet soon.)
