When one tugs at a single thing in
nature, he finds it attached to the
rest of the world.

~ John Muir


This weekend brought just Mike and I
at home so we decided to get away for
a little while.
We hiked, talked, planned and dreamed.
We discovered a beautiful, although crumbling
house and made up stories as to what happened
to the family who once made it a home.
We had a special time.
Today we are home and taking it easy.
I've discovered the joys of pinterest and
am having the best time making boards.
Dinner is in the crock pot,  I have the
hammock set up, a new book to read and
some sun to soak up.  Enjoy your day!
Joining with Amanda


  1. Beautiful pictures. We have a sunny weekend too but there is still snow everywhere. I am so itching to get gardening.

  2. Sounds lovely Tracey. Your walk looks amazing, has me feeling a little sad Reece and I aren't heading south this year.

    Hope you enjoyed your afternoon.

  3. So glad you had a wonderful weekend! You deserve it.

  4. Lovely nature. Very cool how it's right in your backyard. Glad you're haveing some R&R.

  5. did you really see an armadillo? wow!
    What a great post, Tracey. I love the quote, the photos and that you had a nice walk with your honey.

  6. Those little white and green flowers! Are they snow drops? Crocus? So lovely!

  7. That house looks fantastic! And what fun it would be to poke around it and imagine all the things that house has seen! And pinterest - yes! :)

  8. lovely weekend. great pictures too.

  9. I love exploring old houses like that. It is always fun to imagine who lived there and what happened and why is the house abandoned. There are several ghost towns in Colorado that are fun to explore. Pintrest is so addicting. I love my kitchen and yarn pages!

  10. Beautiful photos. Love the walk in the wilds and the old house and that you make up stories. Your weekend sounds very special.
    Love your pintrest pages too...I must take time this year to start one but I still have to begin filling in my ravelry pages...I'm sure that I'll get there eventually and in the meantime enjoy everyone else's. Thank you for sharing your weekend with us.

  11. What a lovely old house it looks so Australian! Welcome to pinterest it is a lovely creative outlet and will be so interested to see your boards.

  12. I love having silly conversations with my husband. I also like how time stops no worries or pressing matters-snapshots of happiness! you live is such a beautiful corner of the world :)

  18. What a beautiful weekend in words and pictures.♥ That armadillo is so cute! I like to imagine stories when I visit old houses and interesting places. Sometimes when I am walking through the woods, I imagine that I am a woman from long ago. . .
