Relaxing now...

Whenever Glenn takes a few days off when the weather is beautiful things get busy around here.

Day trips were taken to places never explored before,
 and to a few places brand new for the girls.
 It's been ages since the last time we had been to a favorite spot of long ago.  20 years to be exact.
Too long.  Brendon was itty bitty the last time we were here.
 Between all the exploring that was accomplished for the past 4 days, there was some well deserved quiet times.  Most of it happened up in my room with everyone finding their own comfy spot to enjoy their quiet time.
 After all that, I was able to finish my blanket that I had been working on.
Yes, another one.
This one inspired by all the beautiful colors that I saw in a mountain meadow last year.
All the gorgeous colors from perfect little blooms, wonderful shades of green grass, the gorgeous blue skies and puffy white clouds.
It is hands down my favorite so far.

Now I must go searching and exploring for what will be my next project to keep my hands busy.


  1. Your blanket is gorgeous and what a lovely idea to take inspiration for the colours from nature.
