Holidays

Wow - three weeks of holidays goes fast!  So nice to have the time away from work and all of the duties that call us every other day of the year!  Since my hubby was gone during the first week, I was fortunate to spend some time having coffee, lunch, visits, and day trips with some of my good friends and sisters.  I managed to see quite a few people.  As well as visiting I took the time to just sit on the deck, listen to the birds, read and have my morning cup of coffee.  The simple things in life.

Could life get any better??

I also managed to squeeze in the quilt show in Strathmore as you can see in my previous posting.

Good friends of ours invited us to join them in Radium for an extended long weekend.  We took our time driving up there and stopped at all of the neat places along the highway.



Refreshing and rejuvenating.  Weather wasn't the greatest but we did manage to get a few rays of sun in.  Had lots of laughs, good food and fellowship, but I found out that I suck at Mexican Train!  Thought the deal was to collect points??!!  Not!


Brian and Jan brought Boomer with them.  Isn't he cute?





 On my last week of holidays, hubby and I went to Airdrie for the day to the Antique Mall there.  Took us forever to go through all of the displays.  At one point we came around the corner and Peter spotted a Bessie Guttman picture - my favorite artist.  He bought it for me and now it is hanging on my wall in our spare room.  I had never seen this particular print before and am tickled pink with it!


With working full time, I never have time to bake so one last thing that I did on my holiday was to whip together some cookies.





So all in all, a very busy and productive three weeks off.  No quilting during these three weeks but just enjoyed 'being'.  Nothing wrong with that.  Somehow I think that the sun rejuvenates our outward self but ultimately the 'Son' rejuvenates our soul.

I am blessed!
