bestest days

The early days of fall are some of my most favorite. I love the cool nights, opening the windows during the days, no mosquitoes. The kids are in school and the days are mine to do with whatever I please. Yesterday was a good one.
My friend Jan came over and we spent the whole day together.
We enjoyed a coffee from Starbux.
We went to the cider mill for cider and doughnuts.
We had a tasty lunch @ Zoup!
And we scrapbooked. Really, we did!
I have proof, just in case you think I'm hallucinating or hit my head or something:
I'm working on a quick little mini book of our vacation to Glen Arbor & Sleeping Bear Dunes. I just gathered a bunch of stuff I thought I might like to use, a few pieces of cardstock, and a smattering of photos and went to town. It was very freeing to only have a handful of things to work with. I didn't stress out about being chronological, or the fact the I've only printed a third of my pix. I can add in wherever I choose. So what if I can't find my postcards? I can put them in later. No biggie.
We are going to play twice a month, so maybe just maybe, over time, I'll get back into the hang of scrapping. That would be good.
In the meantime, there is plenty of adventures to be had! See you soon Jan :)

Sounds great! I'm jealous of your ability to relax and create in the middle of the day.

Okay my friend, there is something so wrong (and so right) about the "mooseknuckle" photo-LMBO! :)

The pleasure of the day was all mine! :) Finished my card-you might even be seeing it soon!
