Weekend Thoughts...time for simple things

 So looking forward to a weekend of lovely things.
Perhaps a Gin & Tonic with my husband,
as the evening shadows fall,
before going to the theatre.
Then a tray of crispy apples by the log fire,
as a midnight snack. 
Breakfast in a vineyard on Sunday morning, 
to celebrate Father's Day.
And the children & I will be baking this 
for afternoon tea.
{With garam masala for a touch of delicate spice.} 
Isn't the illustration beautiful?
It's by the clever Alexandra Nea.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend, 
whether farewelling summer or welcoming spring, 
wherever you are.

  11. Virginia,
    this post is gorgeous, those glasses are fantastic,  I have lots of glasses, my husband thinks it's some kind of disease.
    That dress is so romantic, love it, too.
    Love to read your comments on my blog, thank you.
    Wish you a happy weekend.
