I just returned from my annual retreat weekend. For years this was a quilt retreat weekend and I have created many quilts over the years. This year I made some fun project bags, a pair of pants for our tiny person, and did some knitting. Today, instead of staying inside and sewing, I pulled on my hiking boots and went for a hike before heading home. It has been a hot weekend and the trail was dry and dusty. I did a short hike, just a little over three miles, before it got too hot. The trail was very quiet. Everyone must have headed to the lakes and rivers. But I saw some lovely wild flowers, butterflies, two eagles, and a hawk. On the way home I stopped for a very large iced tea. Now I will unpack and perhaps take a nap before thinking about heading to work tomorrow. Hope your weekend included some outdoor time.
