Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.

This weekend has been glorious and we have an extra day.  Bliss!  Friday night was dinner out even though we ate out for our anniversary earlier in the week. It felt a little extravagant.  Since the weather cooled down we went for an evening walk to check out the oil and chipped dirt road which isn't much of a dirt road now but that's its name.

I am ready (ready!!!) for fall but I will miss after dinner walks.

Yesterday our son arrived mid morning to spend a few nights here.  I'm thrilled his commute is short compared to Boston.  We jam packed our day - lots of talking in the afternoon then after dinner we did a bit of shopping. Afterwards we headed to our town park.

I grabbed the camera and went around shooting and enjoying the scenery.  I grew up in the city (Pittsburgh) and my parks were the cement kind enclosed by a metal fence.  So I never tire of endless green grass, bodies of water, trails and paths that weave about.

The guys played some one on one soccer while I read a book. Unfortunately the fear of a rogue ball boinking me on the head held me back from immersing myself into the plot.

Today we had grilled shrimp with zucchini, peppers and gnocchi.  After I publish this post, we are heading out for a walk. This evening, I'm looking forward to some tea and knitting.  Tomorrow our son goes back to his apartment and I'll tidy the house.

How was your weekend?


  1. What a great way to pass the day. Simplicity and nature - can't go wrong with that. We are having a relaxing weekend.

  2. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Being outdoors refreshes the soul that is for sure. Happy Anniversary!

  3. Just back from San Diego and wiped out. Dishes and laundry will have to wait until tomorrow.

  4. That sounds like a pretty perfect weekend.

    I'm hoping to get down to the yarn store in Winter Haven tomorrow. They are having a HUGE Labor Day sale.

  5. walking in local parks is fab. I spent my weekend screaming at a university essay and a bit of side knitting to take away some of the stress! A yarny giveaway over on my blog.

  6. What a lovely park, and I can just imagine it when the leaves begin to change. And how wonderful that your son is close enough to easily spend a couple nights. Now to just get your daughter and her husband a bit closer!

  7. Hi, Karen. Your days sounded wonderful, especially the dinner of shrimp and gnocchi.

    I added you to my blog list because I like your interests, and I am determined to get back into knitting again after things settle down a bit. Happy LD weekend!

  8. So lovely to have your son nearby now. I have been having a wonderful weekend. I even got to go to a yarn shop with my daughters! http://liningupmystitches.blogspot.com/2016/09/holiday-weekend.html

  9. all good. Weather spectacular. Friends from our old neighborhood today. Milwaukee friends last night. Hot tubbing and celebrating. Glad your son visited. Great shot of them playing soccer.

  10. So glad you're getting some time with your son! I'm not looking forward to my Daniel being gone next year to college, so I'm soaking up all the time with him I can this year...I'll miss him! Dinner out twice...what a treat! Hope your Monday is a nice one, Karen. :)


  11. Happy Labor Day, Karen! It's a quiet one here.
