recharge, a tiny bouquet, and still open

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I take a long weekend and head to Connecticut for the first time since Christmas. I eat pizza, make scones, catch up on sleep, and visit with my folks and a couple friends. Completely worth the 20 hours of solo driving.

2. Rudi returns from a trip to the compost pile at our garden with the final half dozen violets of the spring and reports of flowering strawberry plants in our plot.

3. Although we’re terrible at remembering to go to art shows before they close, we make it to the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition at our neighborhood museum days before it goes. Somehow I didn’t take a photo of the ice skater, which was my favorite of his works, but I did capture the draft and final work for an ad for a brand of bike chain:

Rudi and Toulouse-Lautrec's Bicycle Works

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world recently?

hope you have a fun time in connecticut. I would love to live near art exhibits! But I don’t. However, we visit art museums whenever traveling 🙂

in my world it’s a beautiful day!!

Family scones and sleep ….what a prescription for relaxation!! Glad you had a great trip. I hope my daughter feels the same whenever she makes the trip here
