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.  Joining with Amanda for her weekending post.

This weekend was...

Spent Saturday doing some
much needed house-loving...
furniture was oiled, hardwood floors
were polished, bathrooms
scrubbed and clutter was
tossed. Prepared Heather's
summer pasta since it was
too hot to turn the stove
on and then spent several
hours under the ceiling
fan reading and relaxing.
Sunday was getting up
early and preparing for
a [an early] birthday
celebration for the youngest
of the son's turning 14 [7-25].
There was spicy shrimp,
lemon rice, roasted okra and
of course birthday cake. Gifts
were given, stories were
shared and laughter was heard
all over the house. 
It was a good weekend...

just too short.


  1. Love that candle! Happy Birthday to your young man and happy birth day to you!

  3. Sounds like a lovely way to spend a hot summer's weekend. Happy Birthday to your 14 yr old and birthing day for you. x

  4. What a great weekend! When I got to "roasted okra" I got one of those knowing smiles going on. Is your okra done too? We really are just getting started over here. We just hit 72 today!! Woo hoo!

  5. Sounds like a lovely weekend, right down to the newly polished floors!

  6. Happy Birthday!! Time does fly by doesn't it? I cannot believe my youngest is 18 :) I love your kind of cooking, btw.

  7. House loving... I like that much better than house 'work'.

    Blessings, Debbie
