Aughhhhh....as our "staycation" begins to come to an end...it's fun to share that this has been my sewing view for the past twelve days:
Yes, hubby and I snuck off to the mountains for our own little retreat from the world. The cabin we stay at it is perfect and remote enough that our cell service is sporadic at best. The tendency to check our "mail" and "cruise the internet" disappeared within a few days as we found ourselves settling into being "unplugged". We enjoyed morning coffee and walks without it. We relaxed. Which meant I got to sew! Here's a peek at an upcoming finish that I worked on while away:
Our days were filled with wonderful day hikes:
The people in our hiking club are such great people! We really enjoyed our adventures together.
Mimosa's anyone?? Hey what's a vacation without good food and drink??
We also had fun painting pottery one afternoon...
...and me finding new projects. (This one will be a great stash buster and I think it would look cute hung in my second grade classroom once it's ever finished!)
Of course, afternoon naps were always part of the routine!
Anyhoo....it's good to be back! I missed home. But, I do have to admit, that the rejuvenation found in getting away and taking a break is priceless. It's refreshing and allows me to gain a new perspective on our life's journey. How about you? I'm curious, are you too, the personality type that sometimes need to "reset"?? And if not, please do share your secret? Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to catch up on everything all of you have been up to over the past couple of weeks.
Next week's August 9th theme is: Giraffes
