Weekends are my thing

Last Saturday was surely one of the most gorgeous weekends in the entire existence of spring. Surely.

The temperature was in the 70s, quite a nice change from the high 80s we've had lately. (What was up with that, by the way? I was not a fan.)

There was a delightful breeze. The sky was blue. The birds were chirping. The pollen...washed away by the rain we got earlier. Excellent.

I made a trip to the ol' homestead to visit with the fam. Daddy and I worked in the yard, and then we listened to Prairie Home Companion (a Saturday evening staple) on the front porch and I piddled around with my camera. What a perfect day; life is good!

{Weeding is more fun if there's a beer involved...or so I'm told.}

Blessings to you and yours this weekend, friends! Get out there and live it.


  1. Looks like a pretty perfect weekend. I am betting that that definitely is the way to weed a flower bed! And that view...may I have one please? I would love that. Love the pics of your real life and your home. Pretty perfect I would say!

  2. Great pictures, sweet friend! I do love weekends. My daddy would say (after retired) that retirement ruined his weekends!! He also loved to work in the yard and I loved to work with him. I miss him so much.
    Have a good weekend.

  3. Elizabeth, I can't believe I took that view for granted all the years I lived there. I take pictures of the barn and the pastures just about every time I visit now! So peaceful and rural...right up my alley :)

    Thanks for stopping by, friend! I can't wait to follow along on the Johnson family's big Texas adventure!


  4. Annesta, thanks for the reminder to enjoy spending time with my daddy every chance I can :) I really try to...he's great company. I feel the same way about summer break. As much as I truly ADORE having the summer off, when every day is like a weekend, weekends don't carry much weight when you're not working! That's okay, won't find me complaining about time off :)

    Thanks for stopping by, friend! Comments from you never fail to make me smile.



Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
