Finding The Rhythm Again
Hello Peeps! Back from a short vacation in Cape May, NJ with lots to share and catch up on- so, fair warning:)
We mainly went because hubby wanted to run a special 5K race there for his 60th birthday. Friday was windy and cold, Sunday and Monday were cold, windy and almost all rain (UGH) but everyone lucked out on Saturday, the morning of the race. It was gorgeous!
There were close to 500 runners- a record! And Bill completed it- not to win, but just to say he could still do it at 60:)
For T Stands For Tuesday:
On Friday we arrived in time for a late lunch and went to a favorite spot mostly for breakfast- the Ocean View. My chicken caesar wrap was excellent, and Bill enjoyed every bite of his turkey club, of course in addition to having my coleslaw and half my fries;)
Not long after we got home from Cape May, the next morning we began dog sitting duties for our friends. Riley was having his vacation with us:
Now to the art! First up- a card meant to celebrate Try It On Tuesday's 10th birthday. Happy birthday and thanks so much to all the hosts and guests for many years of artful inspirations!
I have another card- this one for the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Stitches):

Whew! Almost didn't make it here as our internet was down all day until now as I type because of heavy storms during the night last night. Looking forward to catching up again!
