"Be content with what you have;
 rejoice in the way things are.
 When you realize there is nothing lacking,
 the whole world belongs to you."

~Lao Tzu

weekending, my favorite part of the week. a time to relax, live, love, just to be. if you'd like to share your weekend either with words, photographs, or both, leave a link to a weekend post in the comments.

This weekend was:

:: listening to rain on the roof as I drifted to sleep
::  waking before dawn
:: quiet mornings
:: iced french vanilla coffee
:: cleaning the herb bed while munching on fresh basil
:: fresh pizza with spinach and feta
:: painting eggs
:: learning to double knit
:: a clean closet
:: finding forgotten dress in clean closet
:: a surprise Easter lily and chocolate -oh yes!
:: a day trip
:: hours to knit while traveling on day trip
:: kneading and baking yeast rolls from grandmom's recipe
:: eating too much Sunday dinner
:: dirty dishes piled high
:: lots of left overs for the week
:: two year old hugs after days apart
:: bubbles
:: squeals and laughter  from the people I love
:: old jokes heard again...and again 
:: a weekend that lacked nothing!

How was your weekend? xx

  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Love the pictures of the eggs-were they chocolate? I have never heard of double knitting-what is it?

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend! And I love finding clothes I had forgotten about!! And the quote from Lao Tzu is wonderful ;). Hope your week is just as full!

  3. wonderful post - sounds like a glorious weekend - thoroughly enjoyed

    *Now that I've gotten through the holiday I am eager to begin 'making' for you and the 3 others! How do I go about getting mailing addresses?

  8. What a great weekend! I had too much dinner too, and lots of old jokes. Have a great week!

  9. Do I just post my address? That doesn't seem right. As you can tell this is new to me. How do you want me to get you my address privately? Sorry to keep hounding you, but forever after I will know how to handle this kind of thing. Thanks!

  10. We had a great time too! That two year old cannot wait to give you more hugs and she sure does miss you! Love, Your Favorite Daughter :)
