Yesterday the sun was shining and girls headed to the park to fly kites. It was a perfect day for it if not a little bit too breezy.
They had a great time.
There was warm sun for sidewalk chalk art and bike riding with a friend. The girls came in dirty and hungry for supper. I thought the signs of spring and summer were emerging.
I needed to be home today. Just home with no where to go, no time to be there, and no panic to get anything done. I have not been home and in good health in a few weeks. I am behind in everything. Yesterday, I cleaned and reorganized my studio. It was quite evident that the last two weeks before opening night were stressful and time was a crunching. Now, that the studio is mine again to create what I wish when I wish, I need some order. It felt good to get something done.
Today has been calm and nurturing. I slept until I awoke on my own, which, ironically, is not much later than I will have to get up for school tomorrow morning. But, waking on my own feels so nice. I spent a couple of hours working on a new blog giveaway and challenge. I will start talking about the giveaway this week. I am pretty excited!
The weather has once again turned cold and by noon I was searching for my sweater. It is windy enough to qualify for a blustery day. The temperature is expected to drop to 28 this evening. I had a bin half full of potatoes in the pantry and decided it was a good day for Potato Soup. I whipped up some quick biscuits and an easy dinner was served.
For dessert, I pulled a cookie mix out of the cupboard. I had received this little cookie mix as a gift on Valentine’s Day, and often these sort of things make way into the pantry never to be seen again. I am never convinced the cookies will be good enough.
These are darling little sugar cookies which didn’t taste half bad. The bonus came when a neighbor popped in with a box of brownies. How nice was that? Have a good Sunday evening.
