Little pleasures







Little wonders. Little delights. Little pleasures. This weekend was full of them. Rain showers with booming thunder. Plum colored paper for books. Watching Anne of Green Gables for the first time in almost a decade. Red Sox sweeping the Yankees. And long, long walks up hills and through spring trees bursting their buds.

What was your weekend filled with?

Anne of Green Gables . . . I haven't seen that in forever! It was a lovely rainy weekend; I love thunderstorms (as long as I'm not out in them;)I was making a corset all weekend, but the windows were wide open to take full advantage of the beautiful breeze . . .

Little House on Green said...

Your weekend sounds so lovely! Anne of Green Gables, I haven't watched that in years, was it as precious as remembered?
My weekend found us at a friends house enjoying a bbq and some long overdue time together, was great!

Your weekend sounds so fun!! The Red Sox/Yankees bit was not well received in our household (by my husband...I could care less!), but the weather was awesome and we had a nice little party. I love your photos;)

Georgia B. said...

these photos are gorgeous. such wonderful color.

i have not seen Anne of Green Gables in quite a while either. my family used to watch it ALL the time. there is nothing like it! and how great if you have a weekend where you have the time to sit down and enjoy something like that.

PS~Erin said...

Your weekend sounds wonderful! We woke up this morning to those rain showers and booming thunder. Your images are beautiful!

We went to a family fun run fundraiser, only we slept through the running part and showed for the festivities... Had a family bbq for my nephew's birthday... Got together with some girlfriends... and then ended the weekend with a dinner with hubby's family. It was a good one!

My weekend was filled with sweet strawberries from the farmers market - just like this photo! And lots of "urban hiking" in San Francisco...aka walking up some pretty daunting hills. :)

heidi said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!!!
In our house, any team that sweeps the Yankees is cause for celebration!
The highlight of my weekend was seeing my youngest varmint play his first T-ball game. It was so "cute overboard", i could weep :-)
