 The moment when you first wake up
 in the morning is the most wonderful
 of the twenty-four hours.  No matter
 how weary or dreary you may feel,
 you possess the certainty that,
 during the day that lies before
practically always doesn't,
matters not a jot.  The possibility
 is always there.

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 commentsJoining with Amanda for her weekending post.

I woke early and
sat outside with my
coffee in hand and
knitting on my
lap watching the
sun come up, then
I spent most of the
day knitting, knitting,
knitting! I now have
just one toe and the
long stockings are
finished. I can't wait
to see them on a
pair of little wee legs!
I tried out a new yogurt maker,
made yogurt cheese, hummus
[I added roasted bell pepper],
and these little puffs to
serve with afternoon tea.
I did the weekly market
trip and judging by the
crowd, I won't be back
for a few weeks. I just
can not to the crowds!
I talked on the phone with
a friend who lives [unfortunately]
clear across the country.
I am now thinking we All

really need to have a blogging/
knitting getaway someplace
fabulous for all of us to
meet in person! Ireland?!


  1. Now see.. I thought we were all going to Jacqui's croft for a knitting getaway! ;-)

    Your weekend sounds like it was overall pleasant, despite the trip to the market. Those puffs look delicious -- I'm going to save the recipe and try it out in a couple of weeks.

    I'm looking forward to seeing those completed stockings on their deserving recipient.

    Have a wonderful week, Tracey!


  2. oh! me too! I was at thievery crowded farmers market this morning almost crying.
    I was so glad when I finally made it back to my car with all my veggies.

  3. I am SO IN on a blogging/knitting getaway, ESPECIALLY if it's in Ireland!

    We did our regular food shopping yesterday and hit the crazy Thanksgiving crowds at the supermarket -- it was awful. I'm NOT going back until after Thanksgiving, no matter what I forgot to buy. It made me look up a recipe for onion dip -- I can do it!

  4. I am not fond of crowds at all. Better to just avoid them. I spent lots of time enjoying my mornings this weekend as well. Glad you are nearly done with the socks!

  5. The beautiful photo with all these greens reminds me of Ireland. Will meet you there ;)

  6. Ireland sounds lovely... when? I'll do my best to be there!! Sounds like a lovely weekend.

  7. tracey, ireland sounds perfect! it will be sweater shawl wearing weather! i'm glad you had a good day and your socks are almost done. one small girl is going to be very happy!

  8. Ireland? Count me in. Looking forward to seeing those stockings on the little one.

  9. Glad you got so much knitting time in! My time was limited, and I was so tired :-(

    I can't do the crowds, either.

  10. Such a beautiful photo - great capture of the sun peeking through!

  11. Ooh, that sounds like a fab idea. Ireland's only a little car and ferry ride away from here. :)

  12. If you forget to invite me... we're finished! Of course, I'll probably need to win the lottery too. Hmmm, one can dream, can't one?

    Blessings, Debbie

  13. Oh, what a wonderful quote you began with. Morning is my absolute favorite part of the day. Everything possible lies ahead and I have so much I am eager to do.

  14. Sounds like quite a pleasant and productive weekend to me! (Yes, a trip to Ireland sounds like fun indeed :)

  15. i wish i had done my grocery shopping over the weekend but alas...i will have to brave the crowds.

  16. Ireland sounds perfect!! How amazing would that be for us to gather together somewhere for a girls trip!!
    Went to the market today, knowing it will be murder as the week progresses...and hummous is one my favorite things to make!!
    have a terrific week Tracey!

  17. I love the idea of a knitterly getaway! Sounds like a delightful weekend.

  18. Oh yes, I could make it to Ireland , but you are all welcome to the croft too. I just had a vision of a circle of wonderful women, knitting at the standing stones !

  19. What a wonderful weekend. I am with you on those crowds. Ireland sounds wonderful-plenty of wool there. ;) Congrats on getting so much knitting into your weekend.
