What I love about the weekends

It started this way... we have a funeral to go to. Announces my husband. It's at 11:00am.

Of course, I had a whole line-up of "things to do" yesterday, but all that got put on the back burner.
We got to the church, and the parking lot was empty. I check online for the obituary.
The funeral is on February 4th.
But, as luck would have it, JR had to use a bathroom, so we stopped at my daughter's house and She, Sof and Ray were just on their way to breakfast at a local place so we were able to join them. And I will do anything for some Sof time..

I love weekend breakfasts. Not only sharing them at a local diner, but the kind of breakfasts you get to take time with that you don't normally take time with during the week...
                  Coaches Oats, apple, raisins, cranberries, brown sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.

And omelets...made with fresh eggs from my other daughter...all pretty and speckly and various shades of chicken.

So while we were out and about in our funeral attire, we also got to do a little impromptu antiquing, which was fun. My big purchase? A cute Hall's bowl to match another that I have, and a sweet little juice pitcher
(I must confess, I have an addiction to adorable juice pitchers)

And what else do I love about the weekend?
Getting to relax with a Restoration Hardware magalog in front of the fireplace...just dreaming of new ideas.

Funny thing is, this catalog came as a complete surprise! I had forgotten that we spent all of $20 at Restoration Hardware for some new house numbers, and in return? We get this amazing, fat book of ideas and inspiration? Good deal!

Oh, Restoration have given me a whole new gospel of good design with which to spend hours and hours of time wasted in the idolatry of desire.

And one more thing I loved about this weekend...bringing to conclusion a major sewing project which took me the ENTIRE week. A Weekender Bag...

Which I will share tomorrow.

Tonight, we start our Basic Wardrobe check Lori's blog later on for a first installment!


  1. Sounds like a nice weekend after all! Okay, you and Lori posting your Weekend bags......I must make one!
    I'm making my plans for the sew-along.....

  2. Only problem with week-ends - they don't last long enough!

    I have that same juice pitcher! It was my grandmother's :)

  4. I have one of those adorable little juice pitchers -- just like Grandma's! It's so teeny, just the right size for the 6-oz. cans of frozen OJ she used to buy. (Do they even make 6-oz. frozen OJ anymore?)
    ; )


I'd love to hear from you! Let's talk!
