Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments

My weekend was relaxing, calm and delightful, how was yours?  Did you take in the sights and sounds of summer that are full swing?  I sat outside yesterday in my backyard and listened to the cicadas go at it.  The swell that rose on one side and end on the other side of the woods.  Orchestras strive to create music that moves around and surrounds the listener.

Yesterday we fit in TWO walks, I revisited the dirt road that I haven't walked for about three - four weeks.  Partly from the busyness and partly from the heat.  I enjoyed seeing my trees and being in the silence of the woods.

Today after Mass we went to a work Luncheon for my husband's job and I had Black Forest Cake (my all time favorite cake ever!).  You might wonder, how could she eat more cake after being filled with wedding cake all week and still have wedding cake in the freezer.  I will tell you it was wonderful.  

In the spirit of cleaning up our diets (after that cake..), I did do an inventory of all the foods in the cupboards.  I still have to dig deep into the freezers and see what's there.  Then the massive menu planning and finding recipes will entertain me. 

How was your weekend?


  1. Lovely weekend and lovely phlox!

  2. A great day on our friend's boat all day Friday. Quiet day yesterday while the MEN went to see Mission Impossible. Today, knitting. More reading. Reading Stepahnie Pearl McPhees third book. Also readying WHAT THE DOG SAW.

  3. Sounds like a delightful weekend Karen. And more cake, hey you only live once, right? Might as well enjoy it :) Those cookies look delicious.

    Wishing you a lovely week.

  4. I love that you got in two walks, that is fantastic!
    I had a huge piece of birthday cake this weekend and thought of you as I was eating. All this talk of cake has weakened my will power.
    PS- Thank you for the cheering, I finished the pullover.

  5. I could eat cake every day, and I would be a better person for it.

  6. i looooove cake, and black fores is so tasty. :)

  7. The black forest cake sounds delicious. I had the family visit so of course there was cake I baked before they all arrived on Friday.

  8. It is nice to have a relaxing weekend. I am afraid we have not sat outside at all this Summer - the weather has been terrible in Cumbria (UK). My weekend is on the blog. Joan at www.aviewtothefells.com

  9. Oh how I love finding new recipes. Especially when the season is full of amazing local treasures and my garden is bursting with vegetable. You'll have to share some of your healthy recipes with us!

  10. I love black forest cake! We had a relaxing Saturday at home and then spent all day Sunday out and about on the bike with friends. A great way to end our summer break!

  11. Your flowers are lovely! Enjoy your weekend and your restorative time.

  12. I would have eaten more cake too! ;)

  13. Sounds like a good way to ease back into a normal routine. And cake? Always.

  14. Beautiful flowers! Sounds like a great relaxing weekend after such a busy time.

  15. Glad you had a good weekend! Hope you are enjoying your cookbook and freezer delving and menu planning. xx

  16. i love how you study menus and make menu plans (it is so adventurous!!!)...we just seem to eat the same favourites over and over. We are back home safe and slowly recovering.

  17. I'm glad that summer is in full swing for you Karen. We're not having the best summer so far but recently spring and summer seem to be nicer than summer. Having said that you may know that English weather is very changeable and we often feel the four seasons in one day.

    We were busy decorating most of the weekend but when the sun came out and we felt summer for an hour or so we had a little walk to collect eggs from a neighbour.

    Your black forest gateau sounds amazing. I haven't had any for years. It sounds like you are going to have fun planning next weeks menu.
