when there are enough hours in a day...


We were supposed to be visiting my parents in Michigan this weekend but the excessive heat, violent storms and our recent travel led us to postpone our trip until later in August(thank you mom & dad) and it was a solid decision. This weekend was that unexpected one where you gain time and it magically unfolds in slow motion and you are able not only to do the hours of yard work that need to be done but also to visit the farmer's market, cook*, bake* and take time to enjoy it all. The past few days have been full of physical labor in my own garden and the elementary school's garden, time in the kitchen and time with board games, lots of time in the kitchen and time at the table, time in the studio and time reading the paper (and snipping bits here and there for new work) and at the end of each night a walk for the dog and a glass of wine in the chairs by the the coop with C as we watch the chicks enjoying their new digs.
This was a full circle weekend around here and I can only hope the same is true for you : )


(also made these which were awesome)

Sitting in the garden today I watched a hummingbird take a splash in my fountain. Then I moved to the hammock to read and nap. Tomorrow I'll do some work.

Sounds so lovely. Glad you were able to find some much needed time to get some of the more important things done. :)
