I have not had much time to stitch lately but wanted to share my progress. I am coming close to the end. This is a fun piece to stitch. I have some ornaments to stitch that are calling my name from my stitchy stash.
Today was a really good day. My sweetheart took me out for breakfast at our favorite breakfast place. It was nice to sit, chat and relax. Recently he bought me a really cool vertical planter for herbs, so afterwards we went to Costco to get huge bags of soil. This planter has several levels. I love cooking with fresh herbs, and I was able to plant whole seed packets in the planter. It is really cool to garden this way.
Last year Bill built a huge raised bed for growing veggies. We have a gorgeous selection of lettuces and spinach right now. Lettuce you have grown from seed is especially delicious. It really is fun to grow your own food, and I think it tastes even better than store bought. I may have to research some delicious salad dressings to serve on top.
So now it is a quiet evening. Liesl is cuddled up to her daddy, sleeping. I am thinking about the week ahead. I am also thinking about what a beautiful weekend this has been. Sometimes you get to have a weekend that almost feels like a mini vacation. I am so grateful that this was the case this weekend. What a blessing.
