Scenes From The Weekend

It's Sunday night and I should be in bed. But first, a glimmer of my weekend, because I somehow managed to pick up my camera once or twice..

A Friday evening stroll through the annual antique car show in town (see more photos from last year's event); a jam-packed Saturday of random errands, supply shopping, a late afternoon BBQ and a lively game night with new friends; Sunday morning reflection over the nation's heavyhearted anniversary; and putting my head down to work in preparation for the week ahead.

I had to laugh at the serendipity of the words in the topmost photo when I caught sight of them at the car show because of how apropos they are in describing my current mindset. I think I can almost make out the light at the end of the tunnel, though--a beacon of hope promising seven hours of sleep a night.

Hugs, my friends. I'm hoping to find rhythm again soon and with it, the time to catch up on all of my favorite reads. Thanks for understanding.

Oh! I cannot forget to mention my shock & delight at finding a surprise in the mail from the talented artist I recently blogged about. The generosity of this creative community astounds me.


  1. That teeny spoon? So sweet! I find I can always get through crazy days as long as I can fit in tea-time. Good luck to you for the busy week ahead! XX

  2. I'll take that car and that painting, please... :)

  3. I was thinking that first one was something you found online to share with us to represent what you're going through right now. How ironic the way things can be.

    I love your little Bulgaria spoon, the artwork, and of course the cute dog! : )

  4. Temporary insanity, indeed! I actually looked forward to Monday hoping that it would be less crazy than Saturday and Sunday! Kick some tush this week, darling!

  5. I think those words sum up the beginning of a new term perfectly and the mindset of teachers all over the world at that time of year! Routines will settle in and you will have time once again. Good luck with the week ahead.

  6. First, who does that cute puppy belong to and can I puppy sit?
    Second, it's so sweet that artist sent you something. It really is so nice to know there are people like that in the world. Hope you're having a great start to your week!

  7. That puppy is off the scale cute! Have a great week!

  8. love those paintings! the colors are gorgeous.

  9. That's so awesome that she sent you that painting!!


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
