Good morning! How was your weekend?

Mine was wonderful and ordinary. On Saturday we drove up to visit my dad and step mom and had lunch with them. He is doing really well and is thrilled to be discharged from all specialists. Now he is busy with his garden and living life.

On Saturday night, my sister and brother in law came over for dinner and game board night. We had lots of fun together.

On Sunday we attended Mass then I did all the laundry and cleaning that I usually do in the afternoon. My yarn arrived on Friday afternoon and I had a chance on Sunday afternoon to start the baby sweater in the lavender worsted weight wool. My son and daughter in law and my grandson will be visiting in less than three weeks and I want to have the sweater, hat and little blanket completed and wrapped up. Wish me luck! (I really think this is doable because of how tiny each project is...)

My daughter and son in law pleasantly surprised me with a bouquet of flowers for Mother's day. The are cheerful and beautiful!!

How was your weekend?


  1. Pretty flowers and what a lovely shade of lavender for a little itty bitty sweater for a soon to be granddaughter! Just lovely. I, too, enjoyed an ordinary weekend after a week where I had to go to the office every day. This week I am only going in on Wednesday. I hope to do some knitting and stitching today.

  2. I love ordinary weekends! They are my favorite kind. Your flowers are lovely and I'm happy to hear your Dad is doing better. Have a wonderful week!

  3. New yarn, visits with family, knitting, and flowers do sound like a lovely weekend! I hope you get to savor the feelings.

  4. Ordinary weekends are the best! Those flowers are too!

  5. My weekend was ordinary and wonderful just like yours. I had a chance to sit out by the river and stitch. It was so relaxing.

  6. A lovely weekend for you and yours. Casting on a baby knit is the cherry on top of the sundae.

  7. Looks like you had a great weekend. Good to hear about your dad, truly. The lilac purple shades are beautiful.

  8. What a nice weekend! The flowers are beautiful. How thoughtful of your daughter and son-in-law. Great news that your dad is doing so much better. Wonderful that your son, daughter-in-law and sweet grandson will be visiting you soon. I know you are looking forward to that. Dinner and game night with your sister and brother-in-law sounds like fun. I hope you have a good week. See you again soon!

  9. LOVE the colors you chose for the next round of baby knits! How delightful ... and so full of joy!

  10. What pretty colors for the next little knit for the new babe. Your weekend sounds very nice indeed. The flowers are so pretty. I hope you are having a good week.
