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.

This was a not travel stay at home weekend and was much needed.  I:

-ate out at my one of my favorite places for dinner with my husband
-squeezed in two walks nearly every day getting a little sad knowing the time change next week will end the after dinner walks
-prepared more yarn into balls for my last holiday knitting
-gathered with friends and shared a meal, enjoying our friendship
-savored a meal made by my husband, curry, rice, dal and a surprise vegetarian samosa!
-I enjoyed my meal but the dishes.....oh my goodness....
-evenings were knitting away on my gift projects
-spying the red fox in our neighborhood once more-no camera shot.....yet!

How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like a cosy weekend. Mine wasn't terribly exciting either but it was good. Inspired by your Weekends post, I wrote about my happy moments last week...

  2. It seems like you did quite a bit of my favourite thing ever...eating, this weekend. I did my fare share of eating too and caught up with lots of reading, watched my nephews acting debut and was treated to a lovely little tree. So even though the garden is looking a bit like a builders yard at the moment I have some nice pots at the front of the house to play with.

  3. Lots of good things! How lucky your hubby is such a wiz in the kitchen! Our weekend seemed to fly by and I can't believe it's Monday already. Friday evening I went out for a bit with a friend while the girls were at the last high school football game. Saturday we went to a friends house to watch football and just enjoy each other's company. Yesterday we just piddled around the house, got a few things done but also squeezed in a movie and some knitting. All in all a very good weekend.

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! I would be interested in knowing what is your favorite restaurant up in your area since I travel up that way a few times a year.

  5. Sounds like a great weekend. I too spent it with friends and family so it was wonderful celebrating my Dads 80th birthday again.

  6. I think vacations at home are the best.
    My mouth dropped open when I saw your photo; Karen, your yarn is so pretty and I know you will create something amazing with it.
    We use to have a fox, but I haven't seen him in years. I never did get a photo of him :(
    Have a great, great week,

  7. Your weekend sounds perfect! I agree husbands tend to make big messes in the kitchen. And although my husband will cook, I sometimes wonder if the trade off is worth it :)))))


  8. staycations are the best !!! wishing you a great start to your week

  9. I stayed in recovering from head cold, but am thankful! it's so lovely to eat at a restaurant with one's husband! one of the reasons I am thankful! :)

  10. Isn't that too bad with the dishes...I hate that after making a fabby meal and enjoying it...the dishes. Sounds like a relaxing weekend- hope you can get a shot of the fox!

  11. we worked around the homestead. I finished a crochet project and started another. Your weekend sounds wonderful!
    I will be happy when it is dark early and I can cozy down with a project and not think of all the things that need to be done. :)

  12. Sounds like a very nice weekend. Staying home and relaxing is the best! Enjoy your week.

  13. I was caught completely by surprise by the clocks this weekend, it's so strange that most of the clocks seem to know before I do! A stay at home weekend for us to... http://adeolainwonderland.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/weekending_27.html

  14. Your weekend sounds relaxing and how delightful to have your husband surprise you with delicious food.
