Weekend reflections …

Some weekends are great because you go out and do a lot of things, see a lot of people and spend a lot of money. Some other weekends are extra special because they unfold much closer to home … Weekends spent lounging about the house in your PJs until late, drinking a big mug of something warm (coffee for me thanks), and munching on something sweet like butter-and-honey covered crumpets or pancakes dripping with REAL maple syrup (btw, Nigella’s pancake recipe is THE BEST), can feel like the best kind of luxuriant indulgence.

Throw into the mix the sounds of a dog softly padding about the house, bright sunlight streaming in through the windows to warm the house, and it’s pretty much bliss.

I love how weekends spent at home can feel lazy and yet at the same time, be really productive. Snap some photos, read some magazines, sort the wardrobe, do some writing … there’s always something happening even though it might not really seem like it.

I hope the weekend we’ve just departed left you with similar fond memories and has you looking forward to the next …

    Alas, the weekendโ€™s scorched landscape has faded, along with a triplicity of wanderings in and around landmark Georgian mansions, and their golden lawns all ablaze with the finest floriculture. A few heavily iced coffees were much needed to momentarily quiet the sultriness, before cheerfully departing on the high seas for the Isles of Shoals.

    Inevitably a collection of spirited scenes from this weekend will linger through time within the long corridors of my memory. By dinnertime the sun had quite darkened my skin, which looked quite striking in contrast with my blanc-on-blanc ensemble. Glances in the twilight came from all cardinal points, which I merely decoded as pleasant delicate contact!

      Hi Lisa! My goodness … what a weekend you enjoyed!! Through your words I am able to track the passage of the sun and the path created by your wandering feet. I’m sure those wonderfully iced coffees helped to soften the heat and soothe any potentially tired limbs.

      The scenes you paint are always fascinating, always vivid and always beautiful … It seems that even though you’d left the sun behind, the sun stayed on with you (and there’s nothing more lovely than a healthy sun-kissed glow to contrast with bright white elegance!

      A weekend of memories to capture and sprinkle generously over the week days, as needed … until the next two days of bliss arrive once more … Take care my dear … xx

      Hi Andrew – It was indeed a lovely, lazy (and yet also productive) weekend. Glad you liked the photos!!

      I hope you enjoyed an equally lovely time of things on your days off!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Weekends like that are invigorating and I just love the kind that feel relaxing and productive. Have not had one of those in awhile but will soon enough.

      Hi Ricardo – Weekends that are busy and yet relaxing at the same time, must be my absolute favourite. There’s nothing quite like feeling like you’ve had a break and yet accomplished a few things off the to-do list as well.

      I wish you a similar kind of weekend very soon in your future! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Take care.
