Three day weekends and inspiration.

I haven't taken a day off just to take a day off in a while. Today has been wonderful. We slept in, lazed around, went for a bike ride... and I got inspired! It's so nice to have the time to experiment. Pinterest is so addicting and so inspiring. I've made at least ten of the things I found there - and I'm not a huge fan of cooking and I'm not super crafty.

Today I made these two things:

I finally found a use for this beautiful fabric I found in Uganda three years ago!

Homemade granola - delicious! I got the recipe from here, but I tweaked it just a bit. I didn't use hazelnuts or cherries, and used regular raisins instead.


I'm trying to update more often, but it's been hard. The things I've had on my mind have mostly been  difficult things, and I don't often want to write about them. But this weekend has already been so good for me and I'm excited to see how the end of the summer and the fall go. We're looking forward to a New England road trip in October, time with visiting family, and hopefully lots more time with friends.
