A kind friend picked me up this morning to go for coffee at another friend's new cottage. It is such a lovely cottage, built in the 1930's. It has been modernized and bits of beachy colors added here and there, but it still retains the warmth and feel of a beach house. High ceilings painted aqua, open rafters, pine walls. a real fireplace! Lovely.
Another friend from our quilting group drove me home after we had a bowl of homemade vegetable soup at her home. When you need to feel better, the warmth and caring of good friends envelops you.
I felt at peace when I came home, and rather than head to my sewing room, I sat at my kitchen table and finished a leaf sketch that I had started at breakfast.
I made zucchini muffins, some chai tea and sat down for more sketching.
