Sunday, August 8, 2010

Sunday - it is never a day of rest - it is the day to get ready for the work week. I did get groceries early today. Have already made a pan of roasted carrots for the week. Yummy. Roasted the beets I got in my CSA box. Later on I will do some grilling so I have food for a couple days this week. We have a potluck on Tuesday at work so I am going to take a taco salad - I got the meat ready today also. If I am going to make dirty dishes - I might as well make lots of them.

Yesterday I went to a baby shower. The baby got many beautiful clothes - she will be styling. We also snuck in a little shopping and had a wonderful lunch at Panera. We visited my daughter at her store so that was fun to see her. She was a little surprised to see me in her store.

Today's card is for one of neighborhood children. Lexi is a member of the backwards family - which is not an insult - it just means that their cards always open backwards. The first card I made for the family was done that way so now it is a tradition. They would be very disappointed if I made a card that opened in a traditional way for them. The card is based on the sketch at A Craft Little Place - they always have fun sketches but unfortunately I do not always get a chance to play.

Well I must go - I want to get some more cards made for Operation Write Home - if you want to make cards for a worthwhile cause - here it is - one cards makes so many people happy and if you can bring a smile to a serviceman and the family or friends he or she has left behind - how good of a feeling is that. Take the time to check this worthwhile cause out. They even have a card blog with a Sunday sketch challenge and a midweek throwdown.

Everyone enjoy your Sunday. The sun is shining but it is very windy here.
