Last weekend was a three-day weekend for me, and I was sure I would get to post something here, buy you know what they say about the “best-laid plans of mice and men”! That saying, by the way, comes from Robert Burns’ poem “To a Mouse”. Not that it is important, but I just let the English teacher come out of me a little and I had to know. 🙂
Back to last weekend, I drove to Ft. Collins, Colorado (over 130 miles north of here) last Saturday to visit my daughter and to spend the day. I didn’t get out of bed early enough to get there much before noon, so we didn’t get to do too much. But, we did have a nice lunch together downtown and we got a little shopping done. I drove home the very same day. I’ve decided that is way too much driving for one day, so the next time I go, I will spend the night. The rest of the weekend was spent getting caught up around the house and ready to head back to work on Tuesday.
For a four-day work week, it sure was a long one. By the time I got home on Thursday, I was ready for at least 12 hours of sleep which meant I needed to head to bed at 5:00 p.m. I did exactly that! I hadn’t done that in weeks, and I so desperately needed it! I felt great yesterday…just hopped right out of bed at 5:00 a.m.! And I am still feeling the effects of the extra rest I seemed to need.
The photo of the card I am sharing with you today is deceiving. The card is a 3″ x 5″ note card, but the photo makes it look larger. I wanted a little note card size thing for a make-and-take project that I will use at an upcoming crop that I will be doing. I also wanted it to be quick and simple, so you won’t find many layers. I used a lot of new stuff on it, including things from Sale-A-Bration which starts on Monday! Here it is!
