Fabulous summer

I’ll be taking a blogging break for a couple of weeks and will be back no later than August 1st. I’ll be recuperating, rejuvenating (no plastic surgery or Botox, I promise), relaxing, renewing my creativity, refocusing my energy, recovering after a long year, reconnecting with loved ones that I don’t get to spend enough time with, and, last but not least, resting.
We’ll start our old fashioned (i.e. computer and sewing machine free) family time as soon as husband is back from a business trip. I’ll have to fill up my iPod to the last byte with my favorite podcasts before I put the computer away though and dig out any novels I have bought on a whim for the last few years. With any luck there will be a few fun and lighthearted chicklits between the murder mysteries so I don’t miss out on my much needed sleep. My plan is to rest both hands and mind, but we’ll see. I bought a box of Plus-Plus on our trip, and I see lots of building stuff in the future as all 3 generations are totally fascinated with these brilliant little plastic blocks (you can even design quilts with them, but don’t tell).


We’ll also be meeting up with the younger sister/best friend combo for a couple of days. Grandson had such a wonderful time playing soccer with my 3 nephews last week and is still talking about "the boys" (they are 7, 10 and 13, he's 3), so that will be fun for all of us. My dad is doing fantastic by the way; he was actually released from the hospital the day we arrived at their house, one week ahead of schedule. Thank you for all your well wishes; you see - they work!!

I wish you all lots of lazy lovely sunny days, and I’ll see you all back here at August 1st for the big Erosion Bundle Project reveal (of which you can see a little sneak peek above). The prayer flags are still hanging outside, a bit more tattered by the wind and rain. I’ll include new pictures of them on the 1st...
