home....again

Again it went too fast.
Again we spent time doing the things we love to do. 
I read a book. (Love.)
We watched for things.
She wore a yellow polka dot bikini.....and my hat.
Someone kicked sand on plisse.  And that made me very happy.  Hopefully I even brought a few flecks home.
Happy Tuesday.

I've so enjoyed each and every warm moment of your spring fling at the beach, with sun, family, sea and familiarity. Welcome home! It's good to have you back to share the every day ordinary with and good to come along "365."

Sunny side it!

Ana :)

P.S., And that book...looks yummy. It's showing up here and there. Now I know I'll just have to get me a copy!

Meryl said...

SUCH a good book! And I was dreaming of the beach last night, and now it's on all kinds of blogs today...I think the universe is trying to tell me something!

Julie said...

Ugh - the TAN on that lucky girl!!!

Hadley Gets Crafty said...

I feel more relaxed having just seen the photographs! I'm glad you had a good time and are home safe and sound.

At Home Mommy Knits said...

What a lovely spring break! Great way to kick off spring with some beach time.

Nicole said...

although it's always good to be home , i bet you are wishing you brought some of that lovely weather back with you , b/c it doesn't appear as though we will be having nice weather anytime soon!
...btw very nice photos!

Samantha S said...

Lovely pictures. I'm loving your beach blanket.

Hilary said...

Looks like you had a wonderful time! I can feel the sun coming through your photos. :) Welcome back!

Missy knits said...

I just picked up the book from the library this morning...I can't wait to read it! Your trip pics made me relaxed and warmed by the sun...even sitting in front of my computer here at work on my lunch break!!

AAAAHHHH, how glorious that looks!
4 of my kids are hitting the beach without me in another 2 weeks, and the rest of us at home are pouting with our lips 5 inches out. This makes them stick out even further!

Again, thanks for the knitting help you gave me awhile back. I am knitting socks now and I'm just crazy about knitting. After 10 yrs. of stamping, I told everyone I would never again become obsessed with a craft. OOOPS!!!

Reading is my other passion, so off to find that book.

Thanks for sharing your joys with us. It does make life sunnier! ~Jan

Jodi said...

Knitterella Purl said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun!

Cathy said...

what wonderful photos! looks like a fantastic beach.

molly said...

looks wonderful. sometimes I feel there's nothing in the world that our love affair with sand and salt cannot mend.

Someday said...

What a knack you have for capturing the everyday and transforming it into extraordinary... I enjoy reading along!

skeinsherway said...

Yay for good times and family fun! What great memories you're all creating.
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that tan! Jeepers- I have such fair skinned girls it's not even funny. Fair haired too, my little blondies need to wear hats in the summer to keep from burning their scalps! My brunettes do actually tan, unlike their mother... hehe, oh well...

I'm sitting in front of an open window for the first time this spring (finally warm enough!) and I think I can almost smell the water at that beach... lovely pics, as always!

Happy knitting, sand and all-
ali

lisa said...

Sounds like a lovely trip. It's always a fun surprise to find a bit of sand after arriving back home.

Shirley Road said...

Nice hat!

kathryn said...

such lovely photos leslie! i'm glad you had a wonderful vacation!

i tried on that same hat (from Target, right?) last night. i loved it, but it was waaay too small for my ginormous head! i bought the matching tote instead.

Jan said...

We went to the beach, too. I had sand in my book when I took it out of my bag - I did smile!!

MadMad said...

Welcome home! It looks like it was a great time!

Good to have you back!

Knit Sew City Girl said...

Lovely photos! Nothing beats some time with family at the beach. Nice hat by the way. :)

kim said...

What a fabulous vacation. You know, except for the part about the kids kicking sand into your knitting... But you even found a way to make that a good thing!

iknitipurl said...

Sounds completely blissful. I haven't gone on vacation in years! One of these days I'm gonna need to get away and sit on a sandy sea shore to take it all in.

raining sheep said...

Yup. I want to be in that place in those pictures. Our snow is almost all melted...I am off to Vegas for 10 days at the end of the month and I can't wait to feel the warmth on my skin and breathe in that desert air and just stand in the middle of the Red Rock canyon ... it's not the beach, but it is still warm.

Jackie said...

thanks for the lovely pics (as usual). Nice to have you back. Missing your post.

amanda said...

oh your plisse will smell all lovely and beachy!

Glad you had a great time and I am so jealous of Libby's tan!

Lin said...

Welcome home. Look at the lovely blue colour in that first picture!

The A.D.D. Knitter said...

Oh Leslie, sand on Plisse? That's fantastic;)

link building services said...

Assets just like the one you mentioned here will likely be very helpful to me! I'll submit a hyperlink to this page on my blog. I am sure my guests will discover that very useful. Massive thanks for the helpful info i found on Area News Anyway, in my language, there will not be a lot good source like this.

quality backlinks said...

Have you ever ever thought about adding a little bit extra than just your ideas? I imply, what you say is important and everything. However its bought no punch, no pop! Perhaps if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a extra highly effective weblog in case you let individuals SEE what youre talking about as a substitute of simply reading it. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not a lot good source like this.

link building packages said...

Glorious info here. This interesting put up made me smile. Perhaps should you throw in a few footage it'll make the whole thing extra interesting. Anyway, in my language, there are not much good supply like this.

Great article! I really love the second paragraph, I know exactly what you mean! This site is great thanks again!

link wheel said...

Can I make a suggestion? I feel youve bought something good here. But what should you added a couple links to a web page that backs up what youre saying? Or possibly you would give us one thing to take a look at, one thing that may connect what youre saying to something tangible? Only a suggestion. Anyway, in my language, there aren't a lot good source like this.
