time has exponentially sped up over the weekend and into the work week
and i wonder where it all went. the weekend disappeared too quickly (but for those of you interested - i now smell like coconuts and lime thanks to a gift card). work has suddenly bounded into full sprint with the new year - for which i'm both glad and nervous about at the same time.
i will visit but it will be slower most days as work piles up over the next few months.
and see the tulips? those bits of yellow sunshine promise me that it's only about 66 days until spring - spring - spring. yellow makes me happy - it does. it sings and gladdens the very depth of my soul. plus, those bobbins you see there in the jar - i found them in a store all bunched and huddled up for one little dollar. they had to come home with me.
so - the condensed version of the weekend: shop, movie, yummy pizza, sleep, grocery, cook, clean, wash, family time, movie, sleep work. *whew*
how was yours? did you do anything crafty or shutterbuggy?
Gorgeous shot! The colors are amazing.ReplyDelete
I stayed in my jammies all day Sunday watching my 2 Netflix movies and 5 or 6 episodes of The Duchess of Duke Street. Can you say couch potato?ReplyDelete
flowers have a way to make it a special day, have a wonderful week!!ReplyDelete
I love yellow, too! It's such a nice color. The weekend flew by for me as well...but it was a good one, to be sure.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the day!
LOVE yellow too...I can't wear it very well...but to see it...it's very uplifting.ReplyDelete
It was a very fast weekend here too...
No, nothing crafty or shutterbuggy. Just lots of time spent in a smelly musty gym for a wrestling tournament:) Very glamorousReplyDelete
Great color! I love how the flower in the front is blurred.ReplyDelete
when i first saw these tulips it was a like a breath of fresh air. thanks.ReplyDelete
i got out a little for a hike but boy was it cold and i was just not "seeing" things. I thought i would find something cool to photograph but i didn't. oh well.
oh and btw i love the coconut and lime lotion at bath and body works.
the bobbins look cool in that jar. nice spring inspired photo
oh those tulips! beautiful tease for the spring time....ReplyDelete
oh what a lovely still life! so beautifully lit! We did some laundry, took a very cold walk, got half the christmas decs put away, went to mass, and took a friend to dinner...ReplyDelete
have a great week! 66 days -- that's not so long right? :)
oh bugger, I meant to buy tulips while I was at the store. Next week I suppose.ReplyDelete
I cooked, straightened, and packed...I'm now in Louisisana for my pet-sitting duties. Their flight leaves in the very early a.m. then its just me and the pets for 10 days!ReplyDelete
Love the tulips! and I would have to have the bobbins too.
lovely tulips! and i'll take those bobbins! i could use a lot of needles too, as i broke 2 when sewing recently.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo! I did something shutter-buggy this weekend, and took some ice-skating shots at a local pond. Here's a secret preview ... Look for an upcoming Whole Latte Life Winter Olympics post ;)ReplyDelete
lovely photo and i did a bit of both...ReplyDelete
Yellow is such a happy color. Love the photo with the tulips here.ReplyDelete
I don't visit you so you will visit me, so if you can't come by, please do what you need to do for work and relax! I visit you because I love coming here.
I was a couch potato. I am watching all the past episodes of All Creatures Great and Small on Netflix. Pretty lazy, I know.
time seems to have bounded off without me as well! i did something shutterbuggy...had a shoot on sunday! remember to slow down and breath ;o)ReplyDelete
love + luck + bliss,
those tulips are lovely! just what i needed to see. giving me hope for spring.ReplyDelete
the weekend seems so long ago now. but it was a lovely last weekend before work. now it looks like work will be piling up and i wont have much time to enjoy my blog visits as before.ReplyDelete
Hopped over here from Mary Anne's blog. Your photography is stunning--made myself a follower so I can admire it often.ReplyDelete
This weekend, I went walking and took photos for my blog on my cell phone. It doesn't have the depth and clarity of what you're posting, but it really gives good quality for something I can carry anywhere. I like combining photos with words--the two go together naturally.
Oh, geez, once again a FAB photo. You're amazing.ReplyDelete
Taking my camera out tomorrow. I like the bobbins in the jar!ReplyDelete
My weekend sound exactly like yours but with a little bit of swimming thrown in to the mix.ReplyDelete
I love the glass jars in your photo.
i lurve yellow too. in fact, i think i wrote a poem about it once. i should dig it out on some cold winter night. weekend was lovely. a visit with a friend from vermont, had a massage, saw avatar (amazing) and drank loads of coffee ;)ReplyDelete
you fit much more in than i was able to! i could take some lessons from you on how to make the most of your weekend.ReplyDelete
but i did do the shutterbuggy thing. not much that i like came of it, but at least i tried.
thanks for the tulips today. i needed those.
A lovely display of history. My grandmother had so many of those old jars and at one time I had a couple myself. Somewhere along the way they were broken. Beautiful and creative image.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful photo! I wish my light had been as nice when I was shooting the perfume--it's been 72 hrs non-stop setting up my silly store and finally getting a blog-reading break! Thank you for your kind comments Char, they always make my day! I understand about the work piling up--where did the long leisurely days of the christmas holidays go?ReplyDelete
i stayed in with a cold, but hoping to walk today. a bit warmer here...love the orange tulips with the old glass mason jar, those old jars are charming with anything!ReplyDelete
Love your blog banner! I LOVE that it is handwritten! where has all the handwriting gone?ReplyDelete
I'm totally jumping on that "count down in days to spring" bandwagon with you....K ?ReplyDelete
heck...I'll even drive it for you :)
Your tulips are very pretty. My weekend? I found the perfect yarn for a scarf request and started knitting. I also started brainstorming about some knits I'd like to make for home (versus clothing/accessory knits). I did some writing too. My cameras have been resting. It's time to put them back to work. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Hi - I've been seeing your name on lots of blogs so thought I'd come check yours out! Love this image - so thought provoking....ReplyDelete
Love your humor too...
Have a great day!
Woo hoo 66 days to Spring, that's do-able right?!! Love the yellow flowers they look so beautiful against that light. This weekend was fully of snow thawing oh and Coco Before Chanel which I finally got around to watching!ReplyDelete
