Where Bloggers live… A Day in the Life… WEEKEND

Welcome to the latest edition of Where Bloggers Live. It’s kind of like HGTV’s “Celebrities at Home,” but…Bloggers! Who doesn’t like to peek behind the scenes and see inside people’s homes and lives?

As you may know – “Where Bloggers Live” is a group of ladies from around the country who post about their homes (inside and out), towns, and generally their lives.  Be sure to check their links below to read about how others spend their weekends.

This month is a day in my life – weekend!  Well, I have to say, now that I’m retired and not working outside my home during the week – the weekend doesn’t hold nearly as much interest as when I was working.  Goodness, I even have trouble knowing what day of the week it is most of the time.

Well, a major treat on the weekends is going to #1 son and DIL’s for for dinner.  I think I’ve mentioned what an excellend cook my DIL is.  She even likes cooking shows on TV and has a humongus collection of cookbook.  So, there will definitely be an excellent meal for me there.

On Saturday there’s not usually much else going on.  I do try to do a bit more relaxing – some cross stitch, a good book or maybe even watch a TV show.  Now, how exciting is that??? 🙂

Sundays are a different day – there’s church in the morning – and again relaxing and doing very little in the afternoon.

My church (Point of Grace) is a small, comfortable church that worships sincerely.  There’s a great Praise & Worship team, dedicated pastor, lots of little kids & youth and people who are sincere about worshiping God.

After church I come home relax a bit – back to cross stitching, book or TV.  Then to #1 son and DIL’s for dinner.  Perfect way to finish a great day!

Now here’s the list of Bloggers that I share with – check them out – I’m anxious to see what they do on a weekend too.

Retirement certainly changes the “I can’t wait for the weekend” attitude! My weekends sound much like yours, Iris, except I don’t have a daughter-in-law that cooks Sunday dinner! Your church sounds wonderful. I read about it.

So glad you have your son and daughter-in-law preparing most meals for you and your church family to spend weekends with. Do you have a special light you use to cross stitch by? One weekend day recently I worked on my elephant cross stitch and it was so MUCH easier to do it in bright daylight. But I hate taking day time to do something like cross stitch. I prefer doing that while listening to TV at night. I just can’t see those darn Xs!! Our church is calling on folks to become more active. I am contemplating trying to… Read more »


Having someone to cook your dinner is the best thing ever!!
I call that the best thing about the weekend!!

VERY EXCITING!!! I knew I could count on you, Iris, to be the voice of sanity in this otherwise chaotic weekend era. I so rarely ever hear anyone say they “just relaxed” on the weekend, so I’m glad if anyone did, it was you!

Sounds like the perfect way to enjoy well earned weekends! I have to get a DIL that cooks…or at least a DIL of any kind (although I’m in the market for Sons in law as well).
Your church sounds lovely. Sincerity is underrated in all things, but especially in matters of faith!

It’s good to have things on the schedule like family dinner and church to keep the days straight (so you don’t have to get a day of the week clock like Jodie shared!). Your post is making me look forward to retirement 🙂 but I’ve still got a road ahead of me there.
