Scenes From The Weekend

 (the first peony of the season)

 (favorite statue in the park)

 (down the street)

 (creamy & delicious)

 (morning walk)

 (pillows for spring)

 (so good to me)

(pretty in pink)

 (reading, writing, crying, finishing, smiling)

It's May! Sweet, light, fresh, blissful, free, beautiful, joyous, lovely May! That's how I'm feeling at least. Happy and energized.

For nearly sixteen combined hours throughout Saturday and Sunday, I wrote. In between, I managed to eat brownies, take a walk for Sunday morning bagels and coffee, and sleep. And Tiho, (bless his heart), spent significant time in the kitchen and laundry room, producing amazing things in the form of shrimp cocktail, mushroom risotto, and neatly folded piles of clean clothing. 

Flowers kept me motivated. Whenever I felt stir-crazy, I simply ventured over to one of the seven(!) bouquets placed precariously around the house and inhaled deeply.

I feel like I just entered a glorious dream and am not entirely sure how to handle it. For now, I am planning to fill my evenings with long walks and wine bottles and ice cream cones, just because I can.


  1. After 16 hours of writing, you definitely deserve to treat yourself to some wine and ice cream. You're amazing, Kayla!! Glad you had a good -- and quite productive weekend!

  2. Of all your Scenes from the Weekend posts, this one is my favourite!
