Time For Rest

Wow, what a week!  I thought after the grands went back to school, things would slow down.  No.  We had our son and his family for six days because they had to get out of the smoke of the forest fires where they live.  Three active boys and a new baby.  Here is a pic of my precious new grandson, 2 weeks old. He is so good, we hardly knew he was with us.
They went back home Friday night so we spent Saturday with another son and his wife at a Wooden Boat show.  I am tired!
Sunday is a day of rest and I surely could use some R and R so I had a late, leisurely breakfast on the front porch, took a nap, and then spent a few hours in my newly organized craft room.  I can actually find things now- hahaha. I figure I will have to live til I am 220 years old in order to use all my designer paper! but at least it is sorted and categorized now.
So, here is one of the images I colored and turned into a card.

Stamp - Altenew
Background paper - Doodle Pantry

I think I will do some more coloring - so therapeutic.  Tomorrow I will have to re-enter reality - laundry, vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing little hand marks off windows, door, etc.  (And to think I used to do that every day with my own six children!)  But today I rest.
