Monday Musings

As it happens, it's Monday once again, and our stay-cation is over. But what a great week we had!
Besides some garage cleaning (of which I am NOT posting pictures!!), we took advantage of the beautiful weather and did some walking around the lovely lake in our town, which attracts many people in every kind of weather.
This photo was taken with Bill's phone, but it gives you an idea of the view from where we walked with church steeples in the distance. I loved these little kids wading in the water!

We ended our week by visiting the historic Longfellow's Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Ma. This is where we were married 33years ago, in this wedding chapel, called the "Martha-Mary Chapel". 
       



At the inn, we had a delicious meal in the beautiful dining room, then drove down the road to see "our" chapel. It was a gorgeous day and the perfect end to a great week.






So beautifully Colonial New England!

Meanwhile, back at home, Angus and Rosie have been growing, being frisky and...





sleeping a lot!!

And, to tie this post into my blog theme of fabric art, I have been cleaning my studio!! Boxes are set up in another room for sorting fabrics and I am going through trims, notions and threads and finding just the right spot for everything. And, of course, there will be a lot of editing, as I get rid of clutter.
Can't help but think of how many times I've done this in the past, but one thing I know is that I get very blocked and can't create when things are a mess. So, one more time...!

I hope that everyone who reads this is having a terrific week!

Goodness but they are so sweet when they are sleeping:)

Glad that you had a nice staycation. It does look very colonial as you say and I loved the little kids in the water.

I do know what you mean about the studio being disorganized. I always function much better when I know what I have and where it is.

Stay-cations can be fun sometimes especially if you find places where you live that you haven't ever visited before. You live in a beautiful place.

a stay-cation sounds nice. it seems that when vacation comes up it off to this place or that to see as much as you can in the few days you have that you're tired when you get back home. we forget about the things in our own area that we don't appreciate often enough. glad you enjoyed your time off.

Hello Dear Judy,

What a lovely and I must say romantic stay-cation:o) The chapel is beautiful. The dinning room at the inn is just lovely.

I remember as kids how we loved wading in the waters. I was one of the kids who was really kind of frighten to go to far but still I had a ball!

The kitties are so sweet!!:o) Enjoy a most lovely week.

Smiles....

Beverly
