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.

Spent another Saturday in
Charleston and have decided
I really like this southern city:
the people are pleasant,
the food is wonderful,
the weather perfect
and there is just so much
to do and see compared
to my little town.
Bought a lot [a whole lot]
of yarn for Christmas knitting,
but may have over estimated
my knitting time frame.
Sunday was cleaning
chicken coops, weeding
the fall garden and
watching my meat loving
guy's process 140 pounds
of ground venison for
the freezer.  
Loving this time change,
but not sure my internal
clock will get on track
before it's time to
change it back again!


  1. "..a time to relax, live, love, just to be." Love that and yes, that is what weekending is ALL about:)Can't wait to see what you make with all of your Christmas yarn! Barefoot mama

  2. Sounds like a productive weekend! I can't wait what you have chosen for Christmas knits. Congrats to your hubby for the venison. I hope you have a fantastic week!

  3. I've always wanted to visit Charleston. Sounds fabulous! Yes, Christmas is going to get here way before my yarn is used up. I'm sure you'll have better luck,'re WAY more productive than I'll ever be ;-). Happy Sunday evening to you!

  4. Happy Christmas knitting! I'm excited to see what you have planned!

  5. I would love to see Charleston-- it sounds beautiful and interesting. Sounds like a lovely weekend, Tracey. Is that your puppy in the previous post? Cute!

  6. The two visits I made to Charleston when we lived in SC were wonderful. I really do need to make a trip back down south again!

    Mom says "That is a whole lot of venison!".

    Happy knitting!


  7. I cannot wait to see what you are going to knit up! I love yarn shopping for me or for anyone :)

  8. What a great portrait shot!!! Does she have a name????

    Can't wait to see the yarn purchases; I'm going to be enjoying other people's buying sprees for awhile since I'm on that yarn diet.

  9. I love the chickie! Great shot!

    It's nice to know that someone else has trouble assimilating to the time change. I walk around groggy and "off" for a week, sometimes more!

  10. got it. I was thinking cow meat when you left that comment on my blog.
    your boys are hunters.

    LOVE LOVE the chicken shot. Wow. What a look!

  14. I Have to start thinking about Christmas! If I don't make too much stuff I can at least make the bags...

  15. Can't wait to see all the new yarn!!! Oh how Charleston teased me with it's charm as I passed through!! Next time I will stop, I must...
    I love venison. I had it only once a long time ago and it has never left my mind to want to try it again one day.

    Your chicken scares me.

  16. Oh! Lots of yarn! Can't wait to see some of it. Do you have interesting venison recipes? I've only tried it a few times (ground and in a stew) so don't know if I really like it or not.

  17. sounds like your weekend was full of lots of good and great things tracey. i cannot wait to see all your new wool. so exciting to go yarn shopping! and in charlston, i'd love to go there too.

  18. I love this picture. I don't know if you had to get close to him, or if you had a good lens that can zoom in, but the detail and expression on his face are wonderful.
