I took the kids up to Minnesota last week to spend a few days at the cabin...sometimes you have to take the time when it reveals itself to you. Summers go so very quickly, especially with activities both Lu and Bud are involved in, so we are enjoying every single moment.
Blanket found at Second Season on Pierce Street
Something I want to find some more of are hand knit/crocheted blankets. I am still plugging away at my own hand made blanket, but in all honesty, have not picked up my hook in a terribly long time.
These are just a few things I took with me up to the lake and did not even glance at while there...along with the previous mentioned crocheting, I brought along a metal stamping kit, my recipe box to organize and several misc craft projects that went untouched because I spend most of the time in and around this:
It always surprises me how much we take up there while in reality, we do not use 1/10th of what we bring along. As long as there are books, we are content.
Someday I will take my own advice and stop packing so much.
