Weekends

 

Good morning! How was your weekend?

On Saturday we all went up to my dad's place to celebrate his 81st birthday. We had a lovely lunch that was like a dinner - grilled salmon and roasted vegetables along with a bean salad and watermelon - yum. We ended up having beautiful weather (not hot).

My cold is mostly gone but I'm still tired. I have high hopes that this week I will be back to my exercising routines. I've been walking daily with Frodo and that is pushing it! On Sunday, I worked in my art journal creating some spreads and tinkering around with my endless supply of stickers. On the right hand page on my art journal, the teeny tiny paper pocket was made by my sister, isn't she talented?

After a dry spell, Mother Nature has gifted us with drizzly rain - what a delightful change!!

How was your glorious weekend?

  5. It was hot, hot, hot here, but we enjoyed *almost* every moment. Pulling weeds in the hot was not fun, but WAS necessary. The cool shower afterwards ................heaven. AND, there was ice cream after supper! (It was National Ice Cream Day ---- we HAD TO!!!)

  6. Sounds like a nice celebration! We took an unplanned really long walk yesterday, but the highlight of our recent walks was seeing those owls. And we had a surprise rain last night, so no watering jobs for us today. Hurrah!

  7. Happy birthday to your dad! I am very impressed by your art journal. I always wanted to have one but I lack the initiative and consistency to make it worthwhile. I love seeing other people’s journals when I can!
