despite the fact the we ushered in the weekend with a disheartening break down of the old volvo's breaks on friday afternoon (and the demise of the steam iron on saturday), i managed to have a happily productive 48 hours here. four freshly stitched and stamped summer loop scarves are photographed and ready for the shop, new links and badges have been added to my sidebar here >
and i spent some lovely quality time with a few of my very favorite persons. an unexpected act of kindness came my way as well when a faraway flickr friend surprised me with a gift renewal of my account, which had expired last month. tho 2011 has been particularly impecunious for us, goodness, generosity and joy continue to balance out the adversities and keep us afloat. just when we feel we are surely sinking this time - we are reminded there is something to smile about and be grateful for.
which starts this playing in my head :) happy monday everyone!
