Yesterday Pat and I took the kids to walk the Clarksville Greenway. For those that don't know exactly what a Greenway is Merriam-Webster says, "a corridor of undeveloped land preserved for recreational use or environmental protection." The Greenway here is a paved path through the woods, and it is a relatively new attraction. It was opened this past fall and is absolutely beautiful. The trees form a canopy over the path. Off to the sides the path either looked up a stony cliff, which seemed majestic, or down a cliff to open fields and streams. I've heard deer are a common sight, but we didn't see any. We brought some sandwiches to enjoy a picnic. While I would love to go back, poor Sean got way too hot. My little baby gets so red in the face. I think we'll do better on a cooler day.
Something else new is my craft area that Pat helped me set up in our room. We took down the bassinet since we no longer need it now. I am so happy to have an organized area for my crafting. It has already helped my productivity and made me a very happy woman.
Here are two of the newest cards I created.
This was an engagement card for some friends. I smudged the ink slightly on the congratulations, but I was too lazy to redo it. I'm happy with it anyway.
I sewed Ryan a new blanket for his bed this weekend too. While it came out super cute, I now clearly realize that I hate sewing. I am cursing myself for all the fabric and bias tape makers that I recently bought. I am not sure I have the motivation to use them. I just do not think sewing is my thing. I can barely sew a straight line, and I often get frustrated when I do sew. I think I should probably stick to stamping, card making, and scrapbooking.
And the last new thing to talk about is last night Pat and I watched New Moon. I wasn't too excited because I thought the first movie, Twilight, had been butchered. I was so pleasantly surprised at this movie. It followed the book pretty well, much better than Twilight did. Pat was a very good husband to watch with me. He hasn't read the books and isn't all that interested. I think, however, that I was able to convince him that team Edward is the way to go. (You may not agree, but I don't want to hear it ;)
