Idaho or Bust

Today:  Laundry, packing, last minute trips to the studio, second cup of maté, lunch outside, a short run, early to bed (which is what I say now, but we all know I'll see the clock strike midnight).

Tomorrow:  6 am breakfast with BC, a morning flight to Boise, second cup of coffee and a three hour drive up into the Rockies to visit for the week with one of my very favorite birds.

That's right folks, Idaho or Bust.

I'm charging the camera battery right now.

In other news, the Illustrious Mme. Bookling has put a self-care challenge to all the ladies who, ehem, may or may not always take the best care of themselves.  The challenge is, for one week, to mindfully indulge in some sort of self-care every day.  Today, for me, that meant blowing off the omni-present to-do list for an hour and making something just for me.  Not for my upcoming shows, not for wholesale orders, not for the Etsy shop, but just for me.  And let me tell you, it was DAMN satisfying.  I really need to do it more often.


Because every gal needs a new shirt for the air/road tripping.  I've seen so many fabulous embellished tees lately, and really wanted to try my hand at something with ruffles and folds.  Whaa La!  Airport security won't know what hit 'em!

hehehe, I'm reading this little comment right now, sitting across the table from you, with the heel of your hand in your cheek as you scroll around on your computer too.


Idaho has been amazing so far...

BTW... Suppose I send you a jar of pickles, strawberry jam, and a few novelties to create me an Umber Dove custom fly T...

you think it would be a fair trade?

'cause I just have to sport me a traveling shirt...
You, girl, can sell a design like no other...

We shall see...
