I love lazy weekends. Not rushing to do anything, just enjoying each precious hour of down-time with my husband.
After our regular routine of a casual walk down the street to the newsagent, picking up some fresh fruit and veg from the farmer who sells out of the back of his ute at the park, and a liesurely coffee on the back verandah, we do some chores - he mows the front lawn (we actually have grass after the rain), and I hang washing. That done, we settle down to things we enjoy.
Hubby headed downstairs to his motorbike, the need to polish it was too strong for him to resist. And I finished up yesterday's re-organisation of my sewing room and the front verandah.
I also put a pot of gorgeous red gerberas on the back table where we have coffee outside...
...and hung bags on the hooks in the hallway.
After lunch I finished the embroidery on a sweet new design...
...and made a Pumpkin & Kumara salad, plus Chick Pea balls & Harissa, to take to our friend's house for a pot luck dinner.
Now Saturday is almost over. I wonder what Sunday will bring?
Before I sign off I wanted you to see Stephanie's birds.
Aren't they gorgeous!?
This is very inspirational for me as the Birdcage Weekend Sew-In is only two weeks away.
If you plan to do this with Wendy and myself, perhaps you can start making your birds now? I will start making mine soon, and spend that weekend making the cage. You can email photos to Wendy and I after the weekend for a special 'Sew and Show'.
I have a lot of wonderful links to bird making HERE, and you'll find more that Wendy discovered HERE.
Perhaps that's what I'll do on Sunday. Make birds.
For now, I'm off to enjoy some Red Clover tea and honey before bed.
Have a lovely weekend, in your neck of the woods too.
