As Sunday evening approaches and the weekend slips away, I often feel anything but relaxed. How could a new week be about to begin when so many tasks lay unfinished--or un-started? This weekend I didn't shoot photos, clean the house or create something lovely with the lavender (above) I harvested from the garden weeks ago. But I did manage to head out on a few nice strolls with my family and go on a date with my husband for the first time since Nora arrived, to ones of our favorite restaurants, Zely & Ritz, no less. Really, what could be more important than those little moments we get to spend with our families?
Maybe next week I'll figure out what to do with the lavender...Any suggestions?
