I've planted some seeds in pots and have delighted when they miraculously sprouted a week later.
I've learned how to fly fish with my aunt, and even caught a few.
I've hung out with my cousin-in-law and her sweet old lady pooch. I hope I get this many years with my pup and that she mellows into such a lovely lu.
I've taken a nap on a quilt in a park by the Chesapeake Bay while my family played bocce ball.
I've visited our nation's capital on Memorial Day and had a picnic on the grass under the Washington monument.
I've come home to baby arugula that's starting to look edible.
I've bought the first-of-the-season local produce and tasted the first summer strawberries.
I've been knitting again, roasting asparagus, reading fiction, laughing with friends over mojitos and cookies, and dreaming up plans and projects. Like dresses, mini-albums, an etsy shop full of minialbums, sushi parties and even a road trip to Charlotte with a friend who is moving away from Boston.
I've also discovered reblogging and have started a tumblr called wandercraft. I'm using it as an inspiration wall - a place to better understand what I respond to. Apparently I like browns, blues, greens, and dots of bright color against crisp white backgrounds.
Basically, for the last few days I've had a lot more free time. I'm looking forward to a wonderful summer filled with travel, fresh food, crafts, family and friends.
