Peaceful and Happy

If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Yesterday was the United Nations International Day of Peace.
And today marks the first day of Autumn in the US and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.
After a crazy, busy work week, I was quite content and happy to spend a very peaceful weekend at home.
My one and only mission:
to complete the baby blanket.
And that's exactly what I did.
The moss roses I bought last weekend have started to bloom.  A sure sign that the weather is slowly changing.
Even though our day time temperatures are still so very hot, early mornings and evenings are starting to cool off bit by bit with each passing day.  And that's a very good thing for a kitty who likes to be outdoors.
I hope your weekend is peaceful and happy.

Happiness is a peaceful home :)
your weekend at home sounds a lot like mine - just 40 degrees cooler I'm sure .... your moss roses are such a pretty thing!

Lovely quote of very wise words. This baby blanket will be caressing babies for generations. A true labor of love. Moss roses are so pretty and really brighten the porch. Jingles looks content. Blessings...

No place like home for spending a relaxing weekend. Our Spring started on September 1st and the weather here is certainly warming up fast. YAY on finishing the baby looks great! The flowers/plants seem to be doing the second image one of the new plants you bought? LOVE the third image...quite cottage-like.

I hope your week ahead is filled with blessings ~ xo

One of my very favorite songs is V. Gill singing "Let there be peace on earth". Just seems so hard to attain in this crazy world. I at least have it on my backporch with the beautiful fall weather we're having in the MO. Ozarks. Peace to you! Jan

Such a lovely thing to have the weekend to spend at home...we're spending this week at my parents' house, which is definitely the next best thing!

So glad you got your baby blanket done, Tammy--it's beautiful! The lucky baby will feel very loved when wrapped up snuggly in it, I'm sure!

Wishing you a beautiful day, dear friend!

Such satisfaction in completing a project you have set our mind too. Sounds like you have a weekend planned just like mine. To do all that your hearts desire ;-)

I hated to send summer packing its bags but all things in their time. There is plenty in Autumn to look forward to, that is for sure.

My weekend definitely has been peaceful and happy - my hubby and I just spent the past 24 hours out-of-town on a belated anniversary getaway. It was wonderful to do a lot of relaxing, eating out, and a little shopping.

Your baby blanket is so pretty; glad you had some time to finish it.

Hi Tammy,
It's a delight to have this sort of weekend. Those roses are so pretty.
It's a peaceful Sunday for me, just a little stitching and a quiet lunch.

Celestial Charms said...

Doesn't it feel wonderful to finish a project! Yeah! Glad mornings and evenings are more bearable there. Same happening here, and I'm delighted. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Catherine said...

It is nice to have home to retreat to and find peace and calm after such a busy week. I can only imagine that you must be looking forward to the weather cooling down after having such a hot summer. It is the opposite here with the weather heating up, I think for us this summer will be very hot and dry which I am not looking forward to. Your cat is very cute too:) Have a lovely week Tammy.
