it was a fun packed weekend 
with an early start on friday afternoon till late last night.
there were soccer games to play and watch,
an awesome step class for a sweat fest,
a get-together at the beach,
unnecessary but super-fun thrifting (because i really needed more scrap yarn!!),
knitting, reading, more knitting and more reading,
a neighbouring block party to attend,
dinner and new house/neighbourhood tour with dear, old friends.

september around here is always like that...reconnect, reconnect, reconnect
it was so dishes didn't get done till sunday late afternoon. dishwasher (never have and probably never will)
just warm suds, warm sun, and blue glass !!
from reading other blogs, 
i was impressed by how many of us are out there...
still delighting in this tactile task.

wishing you all a beautiful start to your week

  1. Yes, I was surprised too that so many of us still hand wash, makes me smile just thinking about it.
    Your weekend sounds busy, but fun. Life is good!

  2. I love hand washing the dishes, so meditative. I have never had a dishwasher, and like you, never will :) Your weekends sounds just lovely. September is the month of reconnecting isn't it, gathering with all those people you missed over the summer. Such a fun time of year.

    Wishing you a lovely week.

  3. We have a dishwasher, but only use it when we have lots of company. I like doing them by hand, too, although my increasing feet problems are making it less enjoyable.
    I love all your blue glass!

  4. I love your dishes!! We have a dish washer but rarely use it now that it is just the two of us. Only when we have a full house do I use it. I do love washing dishes though, weird...

  5. I've never had a dishwasher either and While there are times I'd like a washing up fairy I think there's a certain pleasure in getting it all done :)


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
