Weekend Wishes

Good morning! I hope all is well in your corner of the world. I'm so grateful for the weekend. Have been in a bit of a fog for the past several days. Work is busy and my creative energy has been nil.

Jingles woke me at 7 am so she could enjoy a bit of quiet time in her favorite spot.

Our temperatures have finally dropped. Right now it is 77 degrees with blue skies and according to the forecast, our afternoon highs will only be in the 90's. I do hope that our days of 100+ are over.

Since crocheting these teeny baskets last weekend, I haven't done anything else, although I have a list a mile long of so many projects I would like to work on.


e
My youngest son was putting treats in this little basket for Jingles the other night.

Her very own little trick-or-treat basket.

Time to get back on track and start creating. I hope your Friday is a good one! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Oh I had to *lol* about your lovely Jingles-photos: She's so sweet and has such a nice and funny face! Her "twin-brother" Maxwell is sleeping (an loud snoring) on a pillow next to my feet (he loves this place!); he doesn't like the actual weather outside: During the last few weeks we had blue skies and sunshine - the best October-weather you can imagine - but since last night it's raining (cats and dogs??? I'm not sure about this, but it's a lot of water! :o)) Whatever, it's autumn, and I don't have problems with cooler temperatures - but Mäx and Nina don't like wetness... ;o)
Well, dearest Tammy, I wish you pleasant temperatures and a lot of creative energy! I love your little baskets - and as I see, Jingles does, too! :o)
Hugs and Love, Traude

Love the photos, love the basket, and I would so like to spend the day as contended manner as Jingles!!
Hope your weekend is lovely too

Theresa said...

Hi Tammy! Those baskets are adorable! I get in a fog once in a while too, I hope it lifts for you over the weekend. My weekend will be pretty full, with work and selling my soap and dryer sachets at the farmers market and also pulling furniture out of the barn to paint for the show. Makes me tired just thinking about it all! I think it's funny that you said you haven't made much and you have a pile of sweet little baskets... that is MUCH! Enjoy the cooler temps and have a fabulous weekend! t. xoxo

Cute little treat baskets! So sweet that Jingles gets to celebrate Halloween early. :) Have a lovely weekend.

Linda said...

Cute little baskets and cute Jingles! :)

I'm working on a drawing/sketch but other than that nothing else. Huge weekend here - Homecoming weekend. Parade and football game tonight and tomorrow evening is the Homecoming Dance, so we'll be busy monitoring teens and taking photos of course of Sarah and Anthony in their Homecoming attire. :)

Have a good weekend,
Linda

Tammy- I do wish you a wonderful, relaxing, and creative weekend!! I think we all get in that "lack of creativity" funk every now and then---

That jingles is totally spoiled- those pictures are precious. I think he likes his Halloween basket!! ( those have to be the cutest little baskets ever!!)

I've loved hearing about your hiking and trips when you were growing up. It sounds like your parents gave you great opportunities when you were a child- you were certainly blessed. I know that you are doing the same for your children-- I cannot even imagine the great experiences that they have been exposed to. It will change their lives in a great way.

Have a wonderful weekend dear Tammy--

What adorable little baskets, Tammy--I just love them!

So glad it's gotten cooler there--77 is just about the perfect temp, I think--that's where it hovers most of the year where I am in California...that and a sweet breeze is perfection!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Popping by from your state of MI. It's a perfect fall here with lots of indian summer days. Glad to hear your temps have dropped. Those baskets are just too cute.

Mariette's Back to Basics said...

Dearest Tammy,

Jingles is a smart girl and she will love that private basket for her treats.
So glad that the weather has more mellowed in your area. This seems to be a perfect season for many countries!
Love to you,

Mariette

Mary said...

How darling! I love the 1st picture of Jingles in his favorite spot...it's perfect in every way ;) Those little baskets are cay-ute, too! I love the little jack-o-lantern face you put on them. And how cute your son gave Jingles some treats in the punkin'. Sweet post~

val said...

Elaine said...

Cute little baskets... Have a nice weekend.
Your Mom called last night.. She wanted me to tell you that she did not forget Yusef's birthday..
As you can see I;m having trouble getting into Google.

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Jingles is just so cute....her little face looks so happy in that pot! Adorable!

I love your crocheted baskets. They are really cute.

Glad the temps are down, hope they stay down for a long time. :)

Blessings always

Your little baskets are so cute. And that picture of Jingles and her trick or treat basket is just priceless. Have a good weekend Tammy. Diane

kimmie said...

Such cute pictures of a contented kitty! I am so glad for you that you finally have a break in the weather. Your inner fog will probably lift as you revive and begin enjoying the outdoors more .... I always get into a housebound funk towards the end of wintertime ... Cabin fever I guess. Enjoy your weekend and take it easy!!!

Oh that little heart throb of a Jingles cat always gets to me, dear Tammy. Jingles is SUCH a love. Your heart must be so filled with love for him.

The little baskets are adorable. Just adorable. Are they doll house sized?

Take care and have FUN this weekend. Do something for you.Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Becca said...

I just loved seeing these cute photos of Jingles! What a cutie! We cooled off a little here in las Vegas too. Should be only in the high 80's next week. Hope you get your inspiration back soon. Are you giving those baskets out at Halloween?

Celestial Charms said...

Hi Tammy,
Jingles just makes me melt. So adorable, and content. Love the wee Halloween baskets! Have a wonderful weekend.

Wish I could be like Jingles right now and so some sunbathing. Leave it to Zack to be silly and think of something goofy. Hope your energy levels get back up there. I am so loving the cooler weather and am thinking of going on Friday morning walks at Scientific Center and would love your company when I decide to do it. Hope your day is much better today.

Love and Hugs,
Melissa

Just out of experimentation as I couldn't log on your site, I used google chrome to post and it worked just fine. Guess I won't use internet explorer anymore. Just glad I can post now:)

Your little baskets are adorable and how fun that Jingles had some treats. Happy to hear your weather is calming down. Not to worry about your list as you will get to it when the mood strikes. I speak from experience. :o)

So very glad it is cooler for you! We are cool now too and we have some snow in the mountains from a storm that went thru the past couple of days. Love your little baskets and your pics of your cat are wonderful. Kit

I love that Jingles got his own treat basket :)
I'm glad temps are slowly coming down in Dubai as well. Arriving here just as things were getting hot was such bad timing - I've got so many things I finally want to see and do. Still very humid in the evenings though, so no patios quite yet. I've got a list of creative things a mile long and just need to get to them. Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Serena said...

Those are really sweet pics of Jingles. What a relief that your temps are starting to drop now.

Those crochet baskets are too cute!!

I haven't done much creatively this past week either...I need to work on that.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Tammy.

Love,
Serena xo

Such cute little baskets!!! And I like the new look of your blog. Sometimes our creative juices just slow down a bit, don't they? But they usually come back in no time! Have good week.

Yesteryear Embroideries said...

I love those little baskets! Are you making them for school party treats.....or for sale? They are adorable. The photo of Jingles looking up is so sweet. You should enlarge it and frame it! Have a good week! blessings,Kathleen

Candylei said...

Such tiny and cute pumpkins/jack-o-lanterns. I really need to get going on learning how to crochet...hook those chain stitches together to make something recognizable.

Catherine said...

I hope you had a wonderful weekend Tammy! Jingles looks like a very contented kitty! :)
