I ❤️

The past three days have been fabulous.  Today I did a lot of fun things.  Simple meditative projects that help me reset.

I baked these GF lemon melt-aways. 

Puffy Hearts!  Making these to brighten up my window:)

My vintage bead collection.  You can find a few treasures once in awhile.

Started this jigsaw puzzle.  Does anyone else like a good puzzle?


Stitch markers from vintage jewelry.  I’ve been collecting these bobbles for ages.  

Weekend updates 

I had a great weekend.  Went for lunch Saturday:

This re covered notebook took me back.  I read My aunts Trixie Beldon and Nancy Drew books, they were hand me down books.  The best kind:)

The best lipgloss this week:



Wore my coral butterfly sweater.


How was your weekend?

Churro

Story time…The first time I had a churro I was in Rome.  A street vendor happily served up this delicious fried pastry at a green space beside the ruins of the Roman Forum.  It was a beautiful sunny day, a holiday for the natives.  Quite a backdrop for my first experience.  I tasted it and was totally in love.  That trip woke up the food adventurer in me.  From there I had pizza topped with anchovies and black olives in a Venice take away.  In Florence I tried my luck with squid and octopus, served by an Asian waitress who didn’t quite know what to make of my exuberance.  Today I’m grateful for that experience, traveling abroad has a different vibe now for me. With terrorist threats and decreased mobility across borders.  It’s not the same freeing experience.  

Love your neighbor, try adventure!

Vacay day

When I take a day off, I try to make it a recharge day, usually away from home so I don’t get caught up in chores.  Here’s what I’m doing so far:

Testing out my “pirate boots” because I’m wondering if I should keep them.  I’m still minimizing shoes and coats.  They need it be comfortable all day.  So far so good.


Turkey chilli from my new fav hangout, McGill’s restaurant café. It’s friendly, cosy, and tasty!  Accommodates my knitting…


And free wifi for bloggers like me:)
