Our week started out with our 31st Valentine's together followed by nasty weather, no snow but definitely ice. I was so glad it was gone quickly.
At Coffee & Crafts I made a fabric on canvas cross.
It's super easy and super fast. This is on a 10" x 20" flat canvas.
The Chosen One and I spent the weekend at the coast.
(oh yea, I am sporting pigtails, I much preferred them over ponytails in my youth)
We're headed out on a long awaited trip soon. Our 30th anniversary is in June and the Chosen One is on a lengthy sabbatical from work so we decided to celebrate while he's free. He ordered a Canon Rebel like my trusty one with additional wide angle and 2x lenses (which is different from telephoto, I wasn't impressed). We hit the beach to play with them about and learn about how we might use them on our trip. We have another lens arriving today that I am super excited but also nervous about.
The real reason we were there was the Wilmington 13.1 that The Chosen One was running in on Sunday morning. It was easy for me to catch him on the course. He is almost always shirtless so not so hard to pick out although he wasn't the only one.
He set a personal record for the half marathon. Shaving more than a few minutes off his old record. It seems sabbaticals help with training :)
So that's the week and a few things I learned .... a new quick craft and a start on new lenses.
What was your week like? Did you learn anything? I'd love for you to share in the comments!!
