During my recent "Blog vacation" I attempted to stay off my computer a couple of extra evenings to enjoy my family and spend a few more hours crafting. One evening I started another cross stitch. This time for one of my nieces. I sat on our front stoop the entire evening until the sun went down. I forgot how wondrous mother nature and the great outdoors can be, with it's peaceful silence and cool breezes. I got a lot completed but more importantly I felt refreshed and relaxed after an evening of me time.
