Man! can't believe it is Monday already! In a way I'm relieved. I mean, I felt like I needed to go back to work to rest today! I definitely function better when I am on a regular schedule and that's much easier to maintain during the work week. Anyway, it's back at it for the week, but here are some of the highlights of the weekend:

Friday-went to the movies with my mom and sister. Had fun just hanging out together. I think my sister is one of the funniest people I know.

Saturday-spent most of the morning doing laundry, waiting for a repairman and working on this.
Jeff called after he got to work and said, "oops. forgot to get my dad a card for Father's day." So, no problem as things were already a mess on the island I just made this. I scanned it for posterity, but afterwards added a couple more words and embellishments (in the car on the way to meet Jeff's folks). I'd wanted to do something with this photo ever since I worked with Grandma Alice's photos last summer. Of course, most of you readers don't know Jeff's nephews, but Jeff's nephew, Grant looks alot like Jerry (Jeff's dad) in this photo. And although the one on the bottom looks SO much like Jeff, I also see Jeff's nephew, Andrew and even Morgan, a bit. Love working with family photos in collage work-one of my new favorite things. In the afternoon, we met Jeff's folks for an early dinner at Cheesecake Factory-YUM!

Sunday-after church my sister and I took my dad out for lunch-Just the three of us. I'm not sure that we had actually ever done this before ever, but it was a real treat to have this time with him. After lunch we took Dad to check out the new Dick's Sporting Goods in our area. Dad is so funny-you can tell where I get some of my wish list making. Dad had already made a list of all the stuff he was going to look for!

Too funny! Jeff and I rounded out Sunday evening with some errands, working on the garage and getting take out followed by a movie-National Treasure 2.

Although it doesn't seem like I actually did that much, it certainly was a busy weekend. This afternoon, I'm catching my breath and then I've got to keep moving. Our new sofa and loveseat is set to arrive on Friday and we're having the carpets cleaned on Saturday. The mission to continue to declutter around here continues. Have to turn my efforts away from my studio this week, but we are definitely making progress around here and that is a good thing.

<----- I leave you with this photo of a bunny I spied in mom & dad's yard yesterday afternoon. He made me laugh at how relaxed he looks all stretched out lying in the cool grass. He must have laid there for at least fifteen minutes before he jumped up and hopped away. Going to find a couple opportunities to relax like that this week and enjoy the beautiful weather they have forecast. Well, it's on the list anyway!
