Quiet Weekends.

As much as I enjoy entertaining, socializing, and going out, quiet weekends at home are my favorite. Didz was busy with schoolwork, and I was busy doing a bit of design work for a friend's project - we would distract each other, motivate each other, I'd proof-read his paper, he'd critique my designs. We watched two movies - The Artist and Beginners - both were really good, but I especially loved the silent perfection of The Artist. One day we ordered take-out, one day I cooked. We drank coffee, tea and wine, and went to bed early.

Here's just a glimpse....

Chopped brussel sprouts for Pancetta, Brussel Sprout & Mushroom Pasta
Fresh bread, flowers and veggies from the market Saturday morning*
Hot coffee 
Bright tulips to fight off rainy day blues
Sketchbook & design ideas
I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend, too! 

*a HUGE thank you to Alena who has revolutionized my world -- I now peel squash with ease thanks to the unbelievable vegetable peeler she sent me... Seriously, you guys, it's the best.

  1. This sounds absolutely lovely! I'm glad you got some time together and down time.
    I also bought bright flowers from my local spot to brighten up my home against the snow!
