Scenes from the weekend

We had a good weekend. Freezing cold, but good. It was a weekend of eating out, and staying in to do puzzles and play games. A weekend of long walks and playing in the snow, of sitting in Starbucks writing letters, and drinking lots of tea. Time together and alone time. It was pretty much perfect.

Heading home

The cold weather and snow are supposed to carry on for the next few days. If they do, and school gets cancelled, I'll be making soup, baking muffins, reading books, relaxing, and getting some more stuff done around here, too. I'm not counting on it, but you never know, right? I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

  1. I marvel at just how much your boys have grown every time I see a weekend picture. Sawyer is looking more and more grown up and on Skype yesterday he looked so very much like Dylan now! Love the look of your cosy weekend, glad we got to share five minutes or so of it too!
    Wishing you a wonderful, wintery week ahead!

  2. Oh my gosh snow, how lovely! Soup is definitely the perfect winter warmer. The weather here has been terrible, really overcast and not very hot! Hmph to bad summers in a row, whats going on? Maybe I should just come and enjoy the snow :-)

  3. It was a fabulous weekend, non? Chez moi aussi, even though I'm half-way across the world...

    So glad that you got some snowy weather. The boys must have been thrilled.

    I love that last photo. It reminds me of the Robert Frost poem that you must know by heart. But {if you don't mind me being nerdy}, here it is. {Thanks www.poetryfoundation.org for the text...}:

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
    BY ROBERT FROST

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    {OK, did you just have a big shiver of winter poetry emotion? Moi aussi!}

    Love you! XOXOXO!

  4. Looks like you had such a perfect & lovely weekend:). I had to laugh when I saw the poem that Emily posted above. We had to memorize it when I was in 8th grade. I think, at the time, I was bored with it, but now, with the wisdom of an adult;), it's actually quite a nice poem, isn't it?

    xox, happy week to you and yours! Blair

  5. "Time together and alone," that sounds like the perfect weekend to me too! I hope you're staying warm up there. It's finally getting cold and snowy here in Michigan!

  8. Em, of course I know that poem by heart! It's one of my favourites. Love you, too!

    Kelly, I wish you still lived around the corner. I'd be coming over for dinner! You wouldn't mind, right?

  9. I think this weekend sounds relaxing and perfect. Walks in the snow, writing letters and coffee, playing games. I hope it was the much needed relaxed weekend for you ;)
