There is something so relaxing and satisfying about giving into a lazy weekend, staying in yoga pants and indulging your creative side with lots of stitching.
This weekend has been a quiet, relaxing game of catch up, with an equal amount of stitching mixed in.
And, can I be honest with you? I really needed it. May was a little non-stop. We headed to MD for a big birthday celebration, spent our one free weekend ripping up the yard and completing all kinds of big house projects, hosted my in-laws for a weekend visit and then cramed a bunch of friend/social/charity events into a sunny Memorial Day weekend.
And, now I catch my breath. I’ve spent a little time reading, stitching and gardening, but frankly, most of my time has been spent catching my breath and preparing for the next event/travel/project.
So, when the forecast called for rain and all of our plans were cancelled this weekend, I figured it was time to update the bloggie and spent a little ‘me’ time doing some of the things that I really enjoy (I’ll be heading to grab a glass of wine, download a good book, and curl on the couch as soon as I finish typing this)!
Here is a sneak peek of some of the random parts of our last month, some needlepoint, some gardening, some beer brewing, herb drying, etc.

So, with that, I’m off to do a few more things and then fall back into my stitching chair for a few more hours of creativity!
I’ll be back tomorrow with a quick bday post for Meg..
FYI, I’m moving towards a weekly blog schedule, so look for posts over the weekend- or wait and find them in your blog reader on Monday AM at the office!
Question of the week: What are some ways that you save money and make healthy lifestyle choices?
Mer’s Answer: One of the things that I love to do in the Spring/Summer, is plant a full garden. Not only is it great, outdoor exercise, but the fruits (blueberries), veggies (tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, eggplants, hot peppers) and herbs (basil, sage, tarragon, thyme, mint, rosemary, cilantro) help us to eat healthy (and cheap!) all summer! In the last few years, we’ve also been very fortunate in our growing successes, and been able to can homemade marinara sauce for friends and family, as well as prepare an abundance of dried herbs for cooking. They made great presents for Christmas last year, and I’m sure that we will have similar luck this year!
Have a great week and I’ll see you next weekend with some more fun updates!
