I arrived home from my trip Tuesday night, and in between unpacking, laundry, housework, visiting family, tending to the garden, driving my husband to the airport early in the morning, picking up my grandchildren from school and babysitting, etc.,(whew!), I managed to finish the Gothic Arch I started before I left for my trip, (and subsequently messed up and had to start over), for last Sunday's Gothic Arches theme of "Home is Where the Heart Is." Run-on sentence, I know!
(A note about the arch--I've always thought it would be so much fun to have a cottage as my home; the picture is a scan I made from a story called "The Magic Cottage." It appears in a book published in 1931 that belonged to my mother; it was her 3rd grade reader, and she often read stories from that book to us when we were small. Since it was my favorite book when I was growing up, my mom gave it to me many years ago, and I also read to my own children from that book when they were growing up. Now I find myself reading these stories to my grandchildren! How wonderful is that!)
I also made a couple of ATCs today for ATC Wednesday's theme of "Lace" and TGIF's theme of "Fish"--now I'm going to sit down and relax a little, and watch last Sunday's episode of Desperate Housewives!
