weekending. my favorite part of the week. a time to relax, live, love, just be. if you’d like to share your weekend either with words, photographs, or both, leave a link to your weekend post or flickr photo in the comments.

this weekend was
bagels and cream cheese
a walk around the neighborhood
picking up giant acorns and
picking a few oranges
digging through old baby clothes to
find something for this wee babe to wear
unfortunately my others were all born in the heat of summer but
it was fun to hold up wee shoes and pants
the kidlets all giggling over how cute they must’ve been
walking some property we’d like to buy if everything fell into place
not the acres of the big dream but something to call our own
talking to the maybe neighbors and finding them normal, friendly
breathing a sigh of relief when we got back into the car
they’re the kind of people you’d want to have over if it all worked out
watching judy moody with my girls while
eating pizza and still-warm chocolate chip cookies in the living room floor
enjoying my steel cut oats and hot coffee in an almost quiet house
with a half asleep nacho curled up in what is left of my lap
putting pretty labels on bottles of hair oil, face oil, lip balm i made
gifts for friends, done (feels so good to say that)
an afternoon spent watching the kids run around the yard
collecting leaves
making lists to get ready for the week

how was your weekend?

  • Your weekend sounds so lovely! I do hope you get the property you are looking at. Isn’t it hard to believe looking at baby clothes that our babies were really that tiny? I think there is nothing sweeter than baby clothes, well, except for the baby! :)
