    Weekending

    I’m joining Karen once again this weekend. We are wrapping up a long weekend with Greyson’s sister and her family. The weather in Connecticut was less than ideal but we made the best of it.   We are back to our end of summer routine as band starts, classroom prep continues, and I try to squeeze in every doctor appointment that I can.

    Weekending

    I’m joining Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise for her weekend posts, and maybe I’ll finally resurrect this poor blog of mine.  How many times have I said that? We have been in that end of vacation fog here. We got home yesterday from Cape Cod and today was an equally lazy day. No complaints here! We have stayed in Chatham in years past, but this year headed to Brewster. Our plans were a bit up in the air waiting to find out when Addison would be back from Germany. Brewster was a welcome, quieter escape. (Of course we did go to Chatham for some shopping.) We ate way too much fried…

    Long Weekending

    We’ve just arrived home after a long weekend spent in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Instead of bring our own children, we brought two exchange students (both from France) and it was so much fun to take in the sights through their eyes. I’m a bit sad to have left, but it is always nice to return home. We spent a day in Salem, the girls went shopping in Boston with Greyson while I relaxed at the Inn knitting and reading. All in all, it was a perfect trip. I desperately needed a few days away to not think about school. And I did give it barely a thought.  Now to keep that…

    Weekend

    Maybe it ought to be week starting? It’s been a busy one in these parts with “just one more house project.” Our very tan dining room got a shot of color when we relocated the living room rug. There is still a LOT of tan but it’s gett better. We got a new table in the entry way. Hopefully it stays this uncluttered.  I won’t bet money on that. A nice quiet evening knitting and watching the Olympics was in order. We then moved to watching the original Amityville Horror. I giggled through all of it while Greyson reminisced about how terrified he was watching this as a kid. Sunday…

    Déjà Vu

    According to my Facebook feed, my former Catholic school was closed one year and 364 days before my current school was closed. Hmmm…am I bad luck? It’s been a quiet and mopey weekend for me while my husband and daughter are in Virginia. I’m not really in the mood for another week of school but here it is. Lesson plans are done so let’s focus on some more positive things, shall we? I finished my mother’s Christmas socks. Really it’s sad that they took so long but I’m blaming moving right after Christmas. I used my go-to sock pattern: Susan B Anderson’s How I Make My Socks. I pondered, while…

    Would you believe I didn’t take many pictures on Thanksgiving? I’m not sure if I was relaxing a bit too much or missing my oldest a bit too much. Either way, I don’t think we took more than one or two photos the entire day. It was a good day. Quiet and we were a bit sad to not have Addison with us, but it really was a nice day. I didn’t do any cooking this year – a first! I have to say I did miss it. I’m curious to see how our Thanksgiving menu changes once our world traveler comes home. The day before Thanksgiving was my appointment…
