I didn't plan to taking a break. Not from blogging or making. I don't know what happens but somehow I get overwhelmed by all that I want to do and since I can't do it all, I end up doing nothing. I know this doesn't work. I can't do it all. But I must do something or I start to get sad and more unproductive. Once it starts it's hard to stop it.
Needing to make something for someone special is just to thing to break through.
Today we celebrate Debbie and this is the card I made for her. I stitched this piece last night and then stitched it onto a card that Tanner and I signed on the back.
The gifts have been opened and a most delicious breakfast has been devoured. Sadly, the birthday girl made her own breakfast. Pitiful I know but sometimes that's the way it goes.
We'll be heading to the beach for an afternoon of beachcombing and picnicing (or is that picnicking?). This evening will find us at Cafe Lago for a most scrumptuous dinner.
The weather has been gorgeous and requires time spent outdoors.
While shopping for "Flying Apron's Gluten Free and Vegan Baking Book "for Debbie I stumbled on a copy of "Apples For Jam" for a mere $8.99. I've wanted this cookbook for awhile and had to snap it up for myself. This always happens when I'm shopping for others. I find myself the most wonderful treats.
The images in this book are amazing.
Like so many of you, we've been dealing with winter sicknesses in these parts. I must say, this has been the worst winter yet for us in terms of illness. We don't frequently get ill in this house but recent weeks has found all of us down for the count. Thankfully not all at once but one after the other isn't much fun either. Sunshine and fresh air are perfect after recent events.
Off to enjoy this glorious day.
