After a weekend-long celebration and three days in a row of hot weather and swimming, we postponed our plans (blueberry picking) and stayed home today. We needed it, especially after a spontaneous adventure yesterday to a new state park to check out the beach at Castle Rock Lake. Somehow I neglected to put sunscreen on myself.
I love days of grand adventures (minus the sunburn), but the need for downtime is equally important. Time to process, recover, follow a moment's whim, and create. We were feeling artsy. There was T-shirt decorating (Camille)
sticker and beeswax crayon creations (Sylvia)
painting rock pets (Camille)
and I put the finishing touches on a knitting pattern that I've been writing up for a pint-size mason jar cozy (with three variations even!). After I finish photographing all three cozies, I'll share the pattern here. (Here's a peek of the first one for now :)
