Weekend Gifts

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.
J. B. Priestley
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
George Washington Carver
There's nothing like staying home for real comfort.
Jane Austen
I love the slow pace of a weekend without plans.  We ventured out for lunch yesterday but other than that, we've been content to stay at home.  There has been walking, cooking, baking and lots and lots of crocheting.  42 granny squares for the baby blanket are done.
 And now so is the weekend.
Time to say goodnight.
For tomorrow it is back to school.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend in your corner of the world.

Beautiful post. A lazy weekend is wonderful, isn't it? X

Linda said...

Lovely thoughts and photos.

Unfortunately, here - our weekend has involved hacking (as in heavy coughs), fevers and aches. That would me and now Jim. Hopefully the kids don't follow. Thankfully my energy level is better today, but still not good enough for me to venture out on my walk and the worst of it is just settling in for Jim I'm afraid.

It's been an awful winter sickness wise here and we're not alone... an epidemic it seems in most areas here and everywhere we go, we hear people with the same hacking cough that lingers. I'm shocked because we do everything right at our house - tons of rest, eating right, exercise, and hand washing and still - the dreaded illness hits our home once again. Boo hoo.

Hope your week goes well. Ours is a short one with a 4-day weekend coming up. :)

What a relaxing post. I used to love weekends full of activities and excitment. Now my favourite weekends are cups of tea in bed in the mornings, with nothing to talk about other then how we are going to chill. Rare but lovely. X

I love the quote about God....written oh so many years ago! Living alone I hear it lots! And I love the help and guidance I get from finally listening after all these years! THE key to your own custom-made happiness and peace.
The baby blanket if so pretty and did you make all those crocheted pillows there in the picture with Jingles? They are beautiful.
Have a good week!
