Scenes From My Weekend: Adrienne

by Adrienne of My Memory Art

I don’t know about you, but my weekend begins at 5:01 on Friday evening and lasts until 8:59 Monday morning.

That’s as long as I can usually stretch it!
If you can’t tell, I really love my weekends. And this weekend was no exception.

This weekend was a home-body weekend…no get-aways, hotels or restaurants. Just home.
And that works for me.

In the light of the early evening, I set out Friday to hunt for buds…hunt for signs of spring around the pond.
Though the ice had mostly melted, the wind was harsh and my face, nose and toes kind of froze!
I did find some buds, beautifully silhouetted against the soft pinkish blue sky.

Our mornings were lazy….lounging in bed long past the first light….good coffee, easy breakfasts.
Quiet.
Just the two of us. We do so like it this way.

This weekend, staying home meant catching up. Cleaning up.
Long over due kitchen clean up….some desk organization….
And, though it’s not yet fit for a Pinterest pin…you can now see the floor of my laundry room!

We both had to work a little this weekend – not that unusual for the husband, but very unusual for me.
Thankfully my “work” involved use of my scrapbooking tools, so it was tolerable.
The high light of this weekend was cropping with {and catching up with} an old friend.
There are few things that bring me as much joy as watching someone take the time to focus on good memories –
and work to keep them safe.
This mom, who’s son is now a freshman in college, was working on a book filled with his Middle School memories.
We both had fun sharing stories and taking a walk down memory lane!

Weekends.

I love and need them.
It is the gift of time.
Me time.
Us time.
Time.
MY time.
It’s 64 hours to refresh, regroup, reconnect, reorganize…rejuvenate!
Weekends….make me just about as happy as sunflowers.
And that’s pretty happy!

Rejuvenation Bigger Picture Moments ~ Featuring Lisa

The snow is still falling, but I KNOW spring is coming for it comes every year without fail. Its arrival might be delayed by a freak spring storm, but it will come and so … as we prepare for chirping birds, and the warm glow of sunshine let’s take this month and REJUVENATE our soul.

Rejuvenation is our theme for this month over here at Bigger Picture Blogs, and here’s a glimpse from one of last week’s Bigger Picture Moments .

From Lisa at Diapers, Coupons and Bills, Oh My, Life is What You Make It

It took a two-year-old in a t-shirt and princess snow boots to remind me that life is far too unpredictable (and far too short) for us to allow our circumstances to dictate the manner in which we experience it. In any situation, we see what we choose to see. With a little shift in attitude, our challenges can become our adventures, our struggles can become our gifts, and unexpected circumstances can become windows of opportunity.

Such a great message on finding peace in the unexpected.

What do you have for us this week for our March theme Rejuvenation!

As always, please link back to this post in your post and PLEASE VISIT AT LEAST the person linked before you! Creativity flourishes in community!

Scenes From My Weekend – Brook

Just like March my weekend started out like a lion.

From the moment my feet left the warm confines of my bed and hit the floor I was on the go. A “quick” trip with two little ones to Wal-Mart to grab a gift for the birthday party we were attending later that afternoon.

I continued my quest to be a fish during swim training.

Then off to the birthday party where the boys rolled in the foam pit of doom.

Finally a visit to work to take care of some unfinished business. By the time my behind hit the couch it was time for bed. Whew…

Which is why as the rain poured again on Sunday, washing away the last remnants of winter, we did absolutely nothing. I’m not ashamed to say that we stayed in our PJs all day, and I didn’t even shower. The lost hour made the day zoom like the speed of light and I just let it go, no worries or obligations. Darkness came later, but the rain continued washing the earth and the winter blahs from my brain. Spring is right around the corner…I can feel it.
