It’s been a whirlwind two weeks – busy, busy, busy!
What an incredible time I’ve had! I went down to Long Island for a few days to attend my nephew’s wedding and spend some much needed time with my extended family. I snapped a picture of the bride and groom and one of my brother and his wife (the parents of the groom) and forgot to take my camera out for the next three days. My four fabulous brothers and their families, my daughter and her family and a multitude of cousins spent the evening dancing, laughing and telling wonderful stories. There is truly nothing as wonderful as family.
Saying goodbye to everyone on Sunday was difficult but, on a happy note, my brother and sister-in-law (more like a sister) came home with me for a few days. What a treat that was for me. I didn’t want them to leave and head back home to Florida, but I guess all good things must come to an end.
So, things have slowed down a bit and we’re getting back to normal. I bought myself a couple of new notebooks and pens just like I always do in September – this month always seems like a new beginning to me. There’s nothing too exciting going on in my kitchen with the current heatwave – smoothies, salads and fresh fruit and the occasional trip to Bellevale Creamery for delicious homemade ice cream.
I just received a package from UPS from Stampington & Company with 4 back issues of their magazines that were on sale for half price. They’re all filled with ideas from incredibly creative people on starting businesses, making jewelry, handbags and goodies for the home. I’m going to sit in my little courtyard and enjoy wading through these and hopefully, find some inspiration. With autumn in the air, it’s the perfect time to think about starting some new projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to chatting with all of you.
