The Week

 Driving home after completing various errands, I happened to spy this graceful hawk.  He was waiting patiently for a dinner.  I quickly stopped and captured him forever on my phone.  How lucky was I?  I was excited to be at the right place at the right time.

Today, our son will be arriving for his spring break.  I still have to load up on some of his favorite foods, however I did plan out the menu.  I think it's so much easier to cook for more than two or maybe I need to learn to cook for two.  I tend to rely on salads many days.

I have a self imposed knitting deadline to finish or nearly finish the sweater that is on the needles.  So for the weekend I'll be working towards that goal.  This morning I'll be finishing up paperwork and making my to do lists, that will lead to an afternoon of freedom.

Today I'm enjoying: -a freshly groomed dog who smells delightful
                                 -a pink sunrise that is trying to break out into sunshine
                                 -recently swept floors (I should do it daily but I don't)
                                 -a tidied up work area
                                 -the beginning of the weekend

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I think that hawk is a great sign to the rest of your weekend Karen :)
    As much as I love it when my dogs get muddy and dirty...there is nothing like a freshly fluffy one. Have a lovely time with your son & family.

  2. I am only cooking for three now instead of six when all the kids were home and I agree that it is harder to cook for fewer people. I also seem to have too many leftovers...So wonderful that your son will be home next week. Enjoy the time with him. I love the hawk pictures. Have a great weekend.

  3. I agree, it really is hard cooking for two. Truthfully I have so many leftovers in the freezer I don't need to cook, but I still do.

    I know you are so happy to have your son home for break, just don't look at the mess okay?

    Have a great weekend and I can't wait to see you finished knits.

  4. Wow! You really were in the right place at the right time!!

    Happy knitting, I'll look forward to the ta-dah :)
