Weekending

We spent the weekend arriving back home. Slowly.
Reunited with those we missed, we now miss the ones we saw in Germany.
The suitcases are unpacked, the laundry still waiting.
With all new surprises safely brought home (I actually had a real fear of our suitcase bursting open and me being the lady who has to collect her underwear one by one from the conveyor belt) – we found new homes for them.
I wrote the menu plan and was ready to go shopping when I realised it is Sunday, and all the shops already closed.
So I finally transferred all the birthdays to our new calendar, and now our family has officially arrived in 2012.
We took down the Christmas cards, but the fairy lights and window stars are still up; still lingering in a bit with the past weeks, but arriving, slowly.

More weekending at the habit of being.
Wishing you a gentle start to your week..

    I am still in the process of writing a menu plan, for some reason it takes me a long while! Your quilt looks fantastic on top of someone who loves it 🙂

    I still have my little lights up around the window and since I am enjoying them
    so much I may leave them up all year!

    Ah, coming home feels good – even though it’s hard to leave loved ones. Enjoy your time settling in…I still haven’t transferred the birthdays to 2012.

    It always seems to take us at least a week to get settled back in after a trip. Especially the laundry bit!
