This Weekend


On the agenda for this weekend...

a little shopping

a little dining out

a little reading

a little catching up on correspondence

maybe  a little ice skating!

a little sleeping late

a little playing with the camera

a little chillin'

and a whole lot of celebrating
the real reason for the season!


What are your last-weekend-before-Christmas plans?

Enjoy them, whatever they may be!

Oh Anne, I know it isn't even Christmas yet, but I am already thinking about Spring... and my gardens... I am actually going to my favorite garden center tomorrow... just to relax before the big week, and daydream a bit about my gardens next year... wishing you a relaxing weekend... xoxo Julie Marie

Olive Cooper said...

You have fun lovey. We are having a laid back weekend. I am making patato soup for Saturday and maybe going to an estate sale very early in the morning. ♥O

gail said...

I am going to wallow in grandmotherhood and I think take a ride with my hubby to Lamberteville,NJ where the homes will be beautifully decorated for Christmas and also New Hope another great town at Christmastime! I feel like I really can start to relax a little now after a very busy few months.
hugs,

Cookie exchange with the neighbor ladies and assorted buds, then hop on over to where the husbands are gathered and pester them. Saturday night going to see neighbor Brophy Dale playing with his blues band at a local “establishment”. The ukettes playing at the “Puka Bar”...stay dry with all this rain!

The Feathered Nest said...

It sounds like you've got a perfect plan! I have a few projects to complete and then I'm gonna kick back and relax into the new week.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend my friend. I will be decorating...I know, I'm way behind the curve this year!

And I'm so glad you ventured off the automatic settings mode path...just wait, you won't ever go back!!!

June said...

Hi Anne, what a sweet message you left for me! I feel the same way about you!
My plans for the weekend are to finish up on all the gifts I have started and need to finish and then wrap 'em up!
I read your previous post, and I am sooo glad you are getting off the auto setting...you will love all the creativity and versatility you will have once you understand the SS and F-stop. Good luck, it looks like a great book.
hugs to you...

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

After having a weekend last week where I had something to do EVERY minute, this weekend I am just going to do whatever strikes my fancy. To start off with, I am going to a dear friend's house on Saturday morning to get a lesson on making Moravian ginger cookies. It is a recipe that has been in her family for many generations. I'm also going to continue enjoying time with my daughter, who is home from college. They are calling for snow flurries tomorrow night. We have already had snow/ice twice this December. And they are calling for snow on Christmas eve. Won't that be pretty? Have a wonderful weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Andi's English Attic said...

We have a theatre producation of A Christmas Carol to see this afternoon and a panto tomorrow. Oh yes we do!
Enjoy your weekend. xx

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Anne, congrats on being featured in Romantic Homes. Just the cover of the magazine is beautiful so I know what is inside is going to be even more fabulous. Why oh why can't we get magazines over here anymore, I just don't know! Crazy backwards country half the time.

Your photos are already beautiful so I can just imagine what you will do now that the lightbulb has been turned on in megawatts. The calendar with your photos is so lovely. Congrats on that too.

We are on Winter Break now. I already have plans for Sunday through Tuesday, but for today, relaxing, cleaning, blogging and hopefully some crafting. Enjoy a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Tammy

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Anne, sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned... as for me we have to start our Christmas's early to get them all in, one on this Saturday and then at our house for my side of the family on Sunday, and then we have more to go to next weekend! And I still have so much to do, so guess I better get busy! Have a wonderful weekend
hugs~~~ Daphne

It's me said...

Happy weekend darling....i must work today......and lots to do before christmas.......happy time enjpy love love love Ria.....xxxxx.....xxx......xx....x...

cindy @ cottage instincts said...

Sounds delightful Anne! You deserve a little break it seems to me :)

I'll be spending the weekend doing only fun, festive things....a christmas brunch, cookie baking extravaganza with my daughter's in laws (and one of my best friends), date with hubs, watching my boys sing in church, last minute shopping, and wrapping gifts under the tree while Johnny Mathis croons in the background :)

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

Enjoy your gorgeous sounding weekend! We are getting together for our Christmas gathering with my side of the family - including a trip to see our 11 year old daughter perform in the pantomime in our local town! xx

Beach House Living said...

Cleaning up the house for some guests arriving.

Joanna said...

We've had truck loads of snow again, so we're in for the weekend - wrapping presents, making the last of the gifts, delivering any local cards, and watching films on tv ('Bridget Jones' Diary' is on and that's always good for a giggle).

You enjoy your rest,

xxx

Vicki said...

Sounds delightful! Yes, time to clean up Christmas clutter. Everyone gathers here so all that junk still left on dining room table probably needs to disappear. Then, there is the studio area...not pretty. Where can I hide that? Did I mention our tree has dried out? Hmmm...time to get creative there! Wish me luck. A few parties, some baking, I'm getting tired typing this. Take a nap for me!

Anji Johnston said...

Work, getting my car fixed (no heating!) and a whole lot of chillin' - literally! Too much snow and ice = unhappy Anji. Hoping your weekend goes as planned. Would love to see lots of amazing pics from your new camera lens in your next post.
Have a great one!

Theresa said...

Good Saturday Morning dear Anne! I am sitting in my favorite chair, sipping hot coffee and reading what my friends are up to! I am staying in today, wrapping presents and doing a little cleaning! No parties to attend today but Church Christmas Play and Candlelight service tomorrow! BIG hugs and thanks for being my blog friend! Theresa

summersundays-jw said...

I'll be doing lots of the same things as you -- just replace the ice-skating with g'kids musical at church. You've even inspired me to spend some time with my camera. Have a wonderful weekend. Jan

Shirley said...

Hi Anne, A quick note before I go out the door to get my hair cut for Christmas, finish my Christmas shopping, and finish the day with baby sitting our two oldest grandsons while mommy and daddy are going to a Christmas Party. Have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy your ice skating, that makes me think of my daughter who ice skated when she was younger, taught ice skating, and done some judging. Have a very Merry Christmas Your Missouri Friend.

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

I'm off to spend the day with both my boys, can't wait, it's going to be fun (oh my girl too)!! Happy Saturday, T

WORK, WORK, WORK! But I don't mind, Country Roads is usually pretty busy and days go by fast. It is just SO cold inside, no heat! Glad you are having some down time, you deserve it.

Know it will all get done in time and well if it doesn't my family are getting used to IOUs for Christmas presents. Have a wonderful and blessed holiday season

we're clippin' along at a really palatable pace here.
Nothing crazy ... an adult cousin party, driving friends to the airport, Amelie's 3rd birthday, and oh yeah, some snugglin on the couch around the tree with the Blackhawks ...

Merry Merry Christmas
I'm honored to be your friend.
