I meant to tell you all about the wonderful dinner we had with my niece last night. She flew in from New York, where she is attending culinary school, and baked a gorgeous and delicious Raspberry pistachio tart. I took lots of photos to share only to find this morning that the flash card for my camera was still in the computer from the last time I downloaded photos, so I have nothing to show you. I hate it when I do bone headed things like that. Sheesh.
I have today off and have decided to spend it doing some fun things I just haven't had time for until now. Making a Valentines banner with some felt and scraps was first on my list and I was up bright and early at 5:30 a.m. to begin. I didn't mean to be up that early, but I find it nearly impossible to sleep in. So I grabbed a cup of coffee and got to work.
Coffee and crafting are a pretty perfect pairing at 5:30 a.m. I had so much fun I plan to make a few more today, along with running some errands, catching up with all of you and maybe finding an old movie to watch. It's cold, it's grey, and I haven't had a day of indulgence for far too long.
