Lazy weekend...the best kind ♥

Welcome to Friday! I’ve been waiting for you since Sunday night!

I have nothing exciting planned this weekend.  Actually it will just be a very lazy, ordinary couple of days and to be truthful…those are my favorite kind

for you...

Lazy weekends are the best.  We can sleep in without waking to the sound of an annoying alarm clock, slowly sip our coffee (maybe on the deck if the weather cooperates) and not get dressed until we are darn good and ready.  I hate rushing in the morning and this past week has been extra rushy. John had to be at school early twice which completely threw me off, and one day I woke up a half hour late!
It was not pretty…and neither was I : )

this was not me...not even a little bit...

On the weekends we need not worry about those things.  I love it when Rob asks me “what are we doing this weekend?” and I get to say…”nothing”.  

Bliss! ♥

John does have one activity planned at the library Saturday afternoon.  He’s taking a pop up art class.  Every month the public library sponsors two art teachers to come in for an hour and a half to do art projects with the kids.  They focus on a different artist every time and do a project based on that artist. Oh, and it’s free! : )  Last month he did a still life based on Van Gogh.  This time they are making animation flip books. John loves it and so do I because I get to lose myself in the library for 90 minutes while he’s taking the class.  I’ll find a quite spot, curl up, and read.  

If only I could bring my slippers ♥

On Sunday we’ll go to church and then have the whole day to ourselves. If it’s nice I would like to go down to the beach for a few hours or maybe take a walk.  There will definitely be ice cream involved.  Oh, speaking of sweet treats there is something I want to make this weekend.  I saw these chocolate dipped frozen bananas on line the other day.  They look delicious and easy to make so I promised John we would try them.  

They look  yummy!

I’m also starting to think about flowers for my flower boxes.  I’m getting the itch for planting but I didn’t want to do it too soon because it’s still been very cold at night.  It looks like my peonies are just getting ready to open so that’s a good sign that maybe it’s time!

she's almost ready to open....

Also, my friend Shireen recommended an old movie that she thought I might like.  I’m a lover of old movies and I’ve never seen Portrait of Jennie (1948) so I’m going to look for it at the library this weekend. It stars Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten and looks just lovely.  I looked it up on line and all the reviews called it “enchanting” which is pretty much what Shireen said about it too.  Enchanting is right up my alley. It will go well with my Saturday evening latte. 

Hopefully Rob won’t mind ♥

Well, that’s just about it around here, folks.  Nothing terribly exciting but that’s real life and I like it ♥
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be back soon! 


I had to laugh at myself the other day. I looked in the mirror and noticed that my desire to morph into a 1950’s housewife was greatly enhanced by this collar! 

If only all my shirts had one this pretty ♥

Happy lazy Spring! xo
