Hello friends – I hope you managed to find a way to mark the weekend, especially if you have a job or kids at home, and time to rest. This is a time when honoring some kind of Sabbath routine feels especially important. As we progressed through our weekend – Friday Night Dinner (now the one time a week that we sit at the table, with “first-time” food, candles, music and wine), Saturday afternoon cooking shows (we started this habit years ago when we had to pay attention to the TV Guide to find out when the cooking shows were on; now we rely on our DVR and YouTube to serve up the content), Saturday Night Snacks, and finally church (albeit on YouTube) – I found comfort in those familiar things. Honestly, looking through the photos I have to share with today’s post, there’s only one that speaks mightily to this time … and one that makes me think I’m going to keep my Zoom subscription even after I can see more people In Real Life. See if you can spot them!
Spring has sprung around here. Here are a few examples from our morning walks.
And the cherry trees in our center island have been glorious. This is Holly’s regular spot for her evening walk. I am so grateful for this daily view.
The sky behind these blooms has been gray today … and rain is coming tonight. We might have full-on leaves by the weekend?
We’ve been mostly walking in a close-by neighborhood (the walk to the lake has gotten a little crowded) and spotted a front yard full of all the inflatables (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, maybe more?). I promise a photo the next time we see it! Meanwhile, we did venture to the lake yesterday morning (Sunday mornings are still quiet) and these signs were for sure worth a pause.
I also enjoyed a regularly scheduled FaceTime, a few ad hoc, and several Zooms … and one Zoom I hope becomes a regular feature in my life.Y’all. Why did it take a global pandemic for me to have the idea to get my girls together on ONE screen? (I can’t even look at this photo without tearing up. still.)
Meanwhile, the knitting continues and Holly is sticking close. Did I tell y’all that I had to move her “extra” bed to the space right behind my desk.
And if you’re following my Three Things on Instagram, here’s today’s update
Yep, 1-1/2″ to go!
Please share – did you find a way to mark the weekend?
Stay safe. Be well. and remember tomorrow is the day to share about our OLW over at Honoré’s blog!
