Our town..... quite sleepy during the week, but the weekends (especially the Holiday ones) here a VERY busy. We have spent the entire long weekend at home, which has been wonderful, and I've managed to log a few hours at my sewing table.

Here are some of the fruits of my labour! I made these squares for a partner in the Freedom Block Bee. We are required to make one block but heck, I made three!

Also DQS9 sign ups are now open so if you haven't signed up already, hop to it because I know that it fills up fast!

In Gratitude for all that our Veterans and their families have given us,

A Fun Family Friday.........

is what we had last week. I kept Max home from school (with the blessing of his teacher) to explore the beautiful area that we are so fortunate to live in. Pt. Reyes National Seashore is right in our backyard and at this time of year it is a zoo on the weekends. We used Friday to our advantage and before the crowds came rolling in we visited the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse. It was an incredible day and we were not disappointed. After driving through the beautiful rolling green hills and passing the happiest cows you could possibly imagine we parked and walked the half mile to the lighthouse.

After a windy walk we came to the top of the stairs down to the lighthouse. They say that the walk down is the equivalent to walking the stairs on a 30 storey building. Down was no problem, but walking back up was another story!!!

Up close the lighthouse wasn't all that thrilling but the view out to the Pacific was amazing.

These are my guys and in the distance you can see North Beach which runs along the outer edge of Pt. Reyes Seashore.

After the lighthouse - a quick trip to Drakes Beach. Unfortunately it was much to Windy for us to stay for long.

Wow, I feel so grateful to live in such a beautiful and inspiring environment. Moving here was a fluke but we know that this is the town that we are meant to be in. With all of the craziness in the world at least we know that our roots are in fertile soil.
In Gratitude,
