weekend getaway!

We are off to Colorado for the weekend.

I know what you are thinking. "what? are you crazy? You've been blabbing on and on about how much work you have to do, how can you be going away for the weekend?"

Well, I've been thinking the same thing.

But, my friend Joanie says, "there's nothing worth making that can't be made in 2 weeks," so I'm going and I'm glad.

We're meeting our friends Ryan and Zoe there and will have big fun. When I get back I will be tanned, rested and ready to bust out the rest of my work. (Really, I'm gonna wear spf 65 so I won't really be tanned, just rested and ready.)



I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and here's some fun stuff to check out while I'm on a Rocky Mountain high! Yeah, I did it. I posted some John Denver. (Is it me or did he look like a muppet?)

cool postage stamp alphabet.

polka dot cake.

I love parsnips!

Peonies and roses? yes please!

Have lots of fun! I've always wanted to visit Colorado, though not to ski. My only winter sport is ice skating.

Have a great time! Colorado must be gorgeous right now. By the way, I always think that when you are super busy is exactly when you should take a little break, you'll be refreshed and better able to tackle all your work when you get back!

Yes, I must admit that he does look a bit like a muppet. I love parsnips too and for some reasons have not bought them in quite some time. Thanks for the reminder.

You will always be more productive after you have taken some time out to relax. Hope you had a great time!

Hooray for Colorado! I love it there. and I tend to think that taking some time off for fun and adventure will help you be a better, faster worker when you get back. At least that's what I tell myself whenever I take time off. :) Hope you had a blast!
