We live in a wonderful world that is
full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures we
can have if only we seek them with
our eyes open.

 This weekend has been beautiful
sunrises and the return of the heat.
Spending time on my bike, riding
the dirt roads.
Sitting in the shade of my favorite
oak and knitting on a new project.
Watching hundreds of dragonflies,
Hearing the song of winged friends
in the home I hung for them.
Noticing what looks like a bumper
crop of pecans this year so I am putting
the squirrels on notice....stay away!
Being overrun with eggs, lots and lots
of fresh eggs.
Spending time in the kitchen and trying
out two new to me recipes. Go ahead,
try them, you'll thank me ;)
Watching the sun set and the lightening
bugs come out to play.
I ready for a new week and I hope you
are too.

  1. oh my gosh that bike! I LOVE it! and I also love that amazing second photo of the dragonfly, how beautiful~

    SO glad you liked the puddings. I've yet to make the chocolate one, but this just reminded me I still had one of the lavender jars squirreled away in the fridge. if I hadn't already had ice cream AND s'mores tonight I'd be all over it. but guess what's for breakfast tomorrow?

    oh what I'd give to have pecan-laden trees around here. mmm mmmm good.

  2. I really love your sunset picture. Sounds like the weekend went pretty well. Enjoy the week ahead.

  3. I love your bike Tracey, and that last photo, stunning. Have a wonderful week.

  5. It looks and sounds like you had the most wonderful weekend! I am looking forward to seeing your newest knitting project and hope you will get to spend more quality time working on it under your favourite oak tree this week. Your Textured Shawl looks beautiful, perfect for these last weeks of summer (up here it feels like last days of summer, its been so unusually cool). xo
