Have you ever bought a gift for someone and gone almost stir crazy trying to NOT tell them about it?!
That's how I feel at the moment.
My nana taught me this little rhyme when I was a young one, to help me keep special secrets...
"I have a secret
I can't tell
I can keep it
I am so glad she drummed that in to me because I am sitting on a secret that I am bursting to tell, but cannot...at least not yet.
But here's a few hints...
Yesterday I finally framed my new Shabby Roses Stitchery...
....and Blossom took some lovely new photos for the pattern cover with her extra marvellous camera!
When she moves to the UK in April she'll be taking that wonderful photo snapper with her, so Mr E will have to buy me one of my own. ;-)
Thanks for all the support and prayers during our move. We're all settled in now, and starting to do some normal things again.
Early this morning Mr E and I went for a ride down to The Strand and had breakfast by the ocean, alone.
As much as I love my kids, I love having one on one time with the love of my life, too. The last month has been very stressful, and knowing that we can start doing fun things again - the kind of things that allow you to let go of the concerns of the day - is very spirit and soul reviving.
Being on the back of the motorbike behind Mr E is the most refreshing activity in the world for me.
What are the things that refresh you when you are worn out??
I'd love to hear about them.
Have an extra restful weekend, my friends.
