How was your weekend?

Mine was restful, very restful. I sat around nursing my sprained ankle doing everything I love. Today I will be finishing the pink shawl, definitely. I had a lovely afternoon yesterday listening to the birds all day long. Even Holly ventured into the 'dog' zone to listen to the bird fuss.  

We have a bird's nest on one of the outdoor lights - I have yet to identify the bird - it keeps flying away!

No official news on my ankle Xray results but since the swelling is going down and I can put some weight on it I'm hopeful I'll receive good news from the doctor.  My husband says I need a rubber suit, I wholeheartedly agree - I need all the protection I can get.

The Great Declutter project has been put on hold. Maybe tomorrow we will start back up again? I'm limited in what I can do (which is a lovely excuse to not do anything...).

I started a few new books. The first is The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz ( he wrote The Magpie Murders and it blew my mind). So far, I am thoroughly enjoying this one. My other book is Harry's Trees by Jon Cohen, this is my kindle-night-time-reading book and I like it so far.


Yesterday afternoon we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather and snapped the photo below.  How was your weekend?


  1. It was a full weekend, but so good! :) Your smiling faces is just the best!

  2. That is such a cute photo of you two!! Glad your ankle swelling is diminishing. Don't over do it!!

  3. Glad to hear you are feeling better. You guys are ADORABLE!

    Steve and I sat outside too ..................in New Jersey! We did a little road trip where we ate at an old fashioned hot dog stand by the river and then went to my most FAVORITE coffee shop back in Penna.

  4. Your weekend sounds lovely. Ours was perfect. Mass on Saturday with just a few housekeeping chores. Sunday we had to do a deep clean of our water cooler as one of the bottles had gross water in it and made everything taste like motor oil. Now we know how to do that just in case lol. I got a lot of knitting time in ax well as snuggles with my dogs.

  5. Glad you are feeling better Karen. I think you should stay off that ankle for at least a few weeks, you know, just in case lol. Love the photo of you two. Have a great week!

  6. What a great photo of the two of you! We had a good weekend. Did lots of yardwork and then went on a long walk on a trail through the nearby woods. I can sure relate to you and your swollen ankle as I just recovered from a fall and a very sore, swollen leg. That can sure slow one done, can't it?

  7. Hi Karen,
    I'm glad you're getting to rest your ankle and that it seems to be healing well...we tried a new TikTok feta recipe...did some work on the Wedding Doll...and some auto maintenance stuff as well this past weekend...I've just started reading A Very Private Eye: The Diaries, Letters and Notebooks of Barbara Pym...I do love Barbara Pym...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  8. Why do weekends go by so fast? The two of you are adorbs and gorgeous.

  9. Oh no.. wishing you a speedy ankle recovery.
    We had multiple nests last year and this year we got none :(
    Great picture of you and your husband.

  10. I'm glad you are feeling a tad better. Excuses to knit more are always welcome. Our weekend was full of window washing. I love how the sun shines in. Can't wait to see the finished shawl. :)

  11. So glad that your ankle seems to be healing up. It's good you were able to take it easy this weekend. That is a cute picture of your and your hubs.

  12. Take care of that ankle. I'm glad the swelling is going down. We had a nice weekend. I cast on a new shawl!

  13. Love that last photo! and the good(? I hope!) news about your ankle!
