"Whatever we are waiting for-peace of mind, contentment, grace,
 the inner awareness of simple
 abunance- it will surely come to
us, but only when we are ready
to receive it with an open and
grateful heart."

~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

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...

Being grateful that my beloved planted the crops
early this season and I have vegetables to put up.
Harvesting corn, shucking, blanching, freezing.
Finally picking the first ripe blueberries. We
are having the strangest growing season that
I can ever remember.
Going to my favorite thrift store and finding
more Pyrex bowls for my kitchen and a brand
new pair of overalls with the tags still attached.
Watching Arsenic and Old Lace for the 100th
time and still loving it! Juicing the whole day
and realizing I have made it over half way
through my cleanse. Taking a two hour
nap and just being content and at peace.

Linking with Amanda.


  1. Arsenic and Old Lace would have to be one my all time most favourite movies. I have fond memories of watching it with my dad when I was very much younger than I am now. Our weekend can sometimes be quite hectic as we offer workshops most weekends but this weekend was a bit of a mixture and my post reflects this.

  2. Lovely weekend reflection. hope you feel refreshed and ready for another week. x

  3. Lucky you finding the pyrex! I look every time I am in a thrift store with no luck. I cannot believe you are half way through already, it is going very fast for me :) Happy Monday~karen

  4. Arsenic and Old Lace is one of my favorites too. That and Bringing Up Baby. We are just starting to pick from our garden. Have a happy week!

  5. Lovely post! I love that pic. Did you use a 35mm lens?
    Love arsenic and old lace. And yes I am a southern girl-can't get it out of me apparently. ;)
    I'd love to see the Pyrex you scored!

  6. That's a great weekend indeed! The pic is beautiful!

  7. That photo is breathtaking! Such a full weekend with so many things to be grateful for. This weekned I'm thankful for radishes, my husband's patience, my son's good humor, and the company of good friends.

  8. Your beautiful picture would put my girl into a sneezing fit. Audrey is having a horrible time right now with pollen!

    Blessings, Debbie
