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.

My weekend was the vacation while staying home each night.  Day trips filled with friends who are like (are) family. I breathed in that woodsy smell and enjoyed being in nature.

The humidity has left for now and it feels different, almost not like summer but not like fall.  I like it!
I am ready to wear jeans again (without sweating) and maybe some wool?  Ah, a girl can dream.

On Friday, I visited two yarn shops that are a drive away with my husband.  I haven't been yarn shopping in quite some time.  Since Thanksgiving??  I can't remember.  When I buy lots of yarn I feel the need to knit through the collection.  Anyways, I had a great time, too many choices but I did pick some and don't ask what I'm making....I have no idea!

Today was quiet and relaxing.  I went to Mass prayed for many who are on my thoughts and also thanked for many of the blessings I have.  The laundry is almost done and once I hit publish, I'll be taking a walk.

Thank you all for your kind words and encouraging comments about children moving out, I appreciated them.  I like knowing I have company!  Thank you all for reading and commenting and to the readers who are silent.  I used to be a silent reader too!  

How was your weekend?


  1. The smell of wood and the outdoors, wool and friends...what a wonderful weekend! Mine has been slow...for which I have been very grateful after much walking and eating last week {hoping I walked off most of the lovely meals}. Have a great week ahead xx

  2. Jeans and wool?!! Well, I am totally ready, but it's still melting hot here, YUCK!
    Hooray for yarn shopping , it's the best therapy after family members move.
    Really like that blue in the left hand corner.
    Have a great week!

  3. i joined in today, though I am still closed for comments. We did nature and friend things this weekend too - how lovely to be in a wood though. i did have jeans on as well. Love your wool spree xxx

  4. Sounds like a really great week - nice and relaxing. So glad you are cooling down a bit where you are. We are still HOT here but I know that fall/winter will eventually get here. Enjoy the week ahead.

  5. Oh wool!!! It's been on the mind here too! Things have been cooler, I've been keeping the windows open and trying to keep the AC off. I'm ready but not ready for fall...Your posts about your beautiful weekends inspired me to write one too :) Thanks for sharing!

  6. You bought some beautiful yarn! Can't wait to see what you'll knit with them.

  7. It's cooler here, too. I've been wearing jeans ... in August!
    Getting outside on the weekend is so important. I walked Saturday, but not today. Sigh. Too much to do.
    I love yarn shopping.

  8. your color choices have sort of moved to the more fall-ish colors, too!!! it's time!!! (and from the stack of that wood...you are ready to move on to the cold weather i hear is predicted this year!!!!)

  9. Nice haul there. How cool to be able to cozy by a genuine roaring fire. We have an electric fireplace here, you know CA laws about spare the air and all.

  10. Wonderful here too. The humidity left this morning. Yesterday we traveled 2 plus hours to the Farmers market in Madison. Lovely day. among lovely friends.
    TOday...I got a much needed hair trim, a nap and some great knitting.
    The air is full of breezes and we just saw the evening skunk go by.
    Looking forward to a really quiet week here.
    To bike? To kayak? To hike? All within my grasp. :)

  11. i love hearing about your weekends.. and i like seeing all your yarn purchases for all your future projects!!!
    Have a great start to your week. Enjoy the cool weather

  12. I never really got out of my jeans this summer its over before it begun here. Like the sound of wool though.

  13. Sounds like a great weekend with lots of relaxing! Your new yarns are gorgeous, I love the colours! I hope you have a great week and that you enjoy the changing weather! I am ready for it to be jeans weather again too! Here is what I did this weekend. Thank you for the prompt xx http://lovemademyhome.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/over-weekend.html

  14. A beautiful weekend and some gorgeous wool you have there too!!! I love the fact that while you are eagerly waiting cooler weather - we are ever so excited to bring in the new season here. Autumn and Spring are my favourite seasons (although Rob doesn't believe in them - he only believes in Winter and Summer!)

  15. Yarn shopping is always good. I'm joining in today. have a very lovely start to your week, Karen!

  16. that wool looks very lush...tomato red and the green are my favs

  17. Good morning Karen! Your weather sounds like ours right now. It is 55 this morning! I have been home for a week after surgery and I haven't felt like doing much but again you inspire me to pick up my needles! We are looking forward to fall around here as well! Hope you have a blessed day! Love those yarns by the way.

  18. It looks like you bought with projects in mind. Enjoy your perfect weather and the quiet in your life while you have it. Before you know it the holidays will be upon us and life will be as busy as a hive!

  19. sounds like a perfect weekend. I am also eagerly awaiting the chill mornings that will arrive soon!

  20. What a lovely weekend. You picked up some pretty awesome yarn. Enjoy your week.

  21. I love your new yarn, looks like great purchases. My weekend was quite lovely, filled with knitting and visiting family yesterday.

  22. on our trip back from Quebec, we were in upperNYState and in a place on way for gas called Lake George, it was so cute, and there was the smell of wood and campfire; my oh my how I miss that smell!!! I love autumn too ... looking forward to it! So soon it is coming now!

  23. So nice of your husband to go with you yarn shopping, I hope mine will one day once I learn to knit. Sounds like a nice and relaxing weekend. That wood pile looks heavenly.

  24. Oh all that pretty yarn! Just beautiful...
    I love that "in between" season. Like you, still the best of summer, but with the first hints of cool. Jeans and tshirt weather is what I call it. Just lovely!
