"I arise in the morning
 torn between a desire
 to improve the world
 an a desire to enjoy
 the world. This makes
 it hard to plan the day."

~E.B. White

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 from the habit of being .
This weekend was...

A weekend with no plans.
Two days of just going with
the flow and enjoying what
the day brings. Saturday was spent
outdoors watching dragonflies
in the herb bed, cloud gazing,
picking home grown fruits and
vegetables. Rabbit hutches,
quail pens and chicken coops
were cleaned and dogs were
bathed. Thankfully I had seen
a weather report or I would
have been putting plywood
over windows since the air
brought the feel of a hurricane
coming to visit. Thankfully
it was just a little cooler
weather before a heat wave
hits the south again. I
tried a new recipe for lunch
and watched an old movie
with a soon to be fourteen
year old who hadn't seen
the ending...where has he been?
Sunday was spent working
on a puzzle  [that is going to
drive me crazy], lots of knitting
and watching the Women's World Cup.
I got to met Percy, a son's
new puppy and learn about a breed
of dog I've never heard of before.
How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like an enjoyable weekend! I keep looking at the dragonfly and I see so many different faces on it. So cool!

    Aha! Cool Hand Luke! It's a classic everyone needs to see.

  2. I want your weekend! By the way, I keep thinking about your butternut squash. incredible. Check in with me on Tuesday. Link up some of your fab garden pics. I have been having a little fun in PhotoShop! ;)

  3. What a great weekend. After the Slow Food farm tour we had a fairly quiet weekend, or at least I did Mark still had a few hundred onion seedlings to plant out! All done now.

  4. Oh those clouds look like snow!! :-) Does that help cool you off any?? ;-). Another beautiful weekend...somehow I always feel better after reading your weekend reports :-)

  5. Sounds so pleasant! My weekend involved a busy u-pick day, then a large family party in the yard which had to be moved at the last minute because it has been pouring rain here all day! Not restful, but fun nonetheless!Hope the week ahead is a great one!

  6. I love the EB White quote :) Your weekend is the kind I always strive for!

  7. That's twice in one week that I've read that quote. It is perfect isn't it? And I have a similar cloud picture, I wonder if we were looking at it the same time :). Sounds like a beautiful weekend Tracey, and thank goodness for no hurricanes yet right?!!!

  8. I added the rice salad recipe to my blog post!

  9. We stayed home on Saturday and watched my husband mow the yard most of the has been so very hot here. Sunday church and went to a few stores that our daughters like to go oldest is learning to drive so we have been....going on a lot of scenic

  10. I had to laugh when I read that quote. That pretty much sums up my life.
    You have one helluva camera, woman and a killer knack for using it as well! LOVE the dragonfly!

    We spent the weekend helping my daughter move into a new apartment and enjoying the wedding of my son's 'friend since preschool'. It was a wonderful weekend!
