It's difficult to achieve balance in my life - there is so much I want to do - but lately, I feel like I might have it right.
and working in the garden -
today the garden was full of little cabbage white butterflies.
I've been going through my stash of linens
keeping only those that I really love
and updating the look in the hallway.
I am doing a little sewing each night as I work on long forgotten projects - the tea towel and pot holders have been sitting in a cabinet for more than a year.
Yesterday I made 3 pillows - all started over a year ago when my sewing machine died.
But as of last week, I have a new sewing machine and I am loving it.
This baby quilt was delivered today - I met the mama-to-be when she was an infant.
Walks on the beach
are mixed with projects like the cottage sign I just painted
and setting the table for Steve's fabulous creations - last night it was a delicious fish soup with lobster.
We usually take one long drive each week - this is the view at Firestone Vineyards in Los Olivos.
We ride our bikes a lot and take a 20 mile every week that usually leads us to another beach in our area.
And, I find some time each day to take 1 photo to post on Instagram.
