News and Views/The #Free48

Last week was, well….was it just 5 work days? 

I spent my #Free48 (for those of you new here, that is my new word for weekend) doing a few projects and having some great creative time. I got some chapters finished in the book, added some touches to a painting, started a new watercolor project and even made a piece of jewelry!

I communed with bees, butterflies and even got out for a bit of a hike in the park today. I cooked a lot, got fresh sheets on the bed and managed to put the memory of that long week behind me. Just in time to start all over again.

Here are just a few highlights. I hope your days off were all you hoped they would be-and more!

I’m thinking of starting a rock collection. 🤔

Here’s hoping your next 120 hours be brilliant and painless. In the words of my dear friend, that Willy Nilly, Silly Ole bear….

Happy Trails! Oh! And watch out for aliens disguised as Threadwaisted Wasps! I don’t know if they sting humans or not, but better safe than sorry. Very elusive creatures…

A practical door, practically a door! Another little wonder in the wonderland of the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

I can’t believe I missed this the first time we went to the gardens. I wonder if they are retired soldiers….
