Our week away was full of family and time outside. After my Great Aunt's funeral we spent some time with my parents and then part of a week alone alongside the river.
Relaxing by the fire.
Dancing with sparklers.
Staying up late.
Morning tea on the dock, eagles overhead.
Crafting. (Of course.)
Yes, there were projects done by each of us which is a sure sign of bliss. (We aren't so much leisure people and free time for Pete and I is usually filled with making of one sort or another.) Pete's projects were manly repair projects around the cabin: the railing, the shed, the tiller. Mine were of the sewing variety (Yes, yes. I brought my machine with me.) I made an outfit for Lupine and four sweet dolls – three for my Etsy shop (above) and one for my boy. The kids made some magical terrariums. And we made marshmallows. Homemade honey-sweetened GAPS-friendly marshmallows. (Oh my. These were good.)
And today we are home. Doing laundry, emptying bags, and settling back into life at home. We're jumping back into our work week and dreaming of the next adventure that will take us back north again.
