The Last Weekend


With the knowledge that this was my last true weekend for a couple months (the project I'm working is heating up.)  I made a list of the things I wanted to do.  It was a short list, but I wanted to end the weekend knowing I'd made the most of it.  First up, catch up on a bit of sleep.   I accomplished this by sleeping in 'til 11 Saturday, something that is nearly unheard of for me.

Next up, some creative time.  I took my camera to one of my favorite places in Lexington, the Arboretum.  It felt so good to spend some time in the garden with nothing to worry about other than how to make a good photo.

Then it was time for a little pampering.  I hit my favorite manicure place for a pedicure and a catch up on the gossip magazines.  While there I put aside my lady-like soft pink toe nail polish and replaced it with sassy teal polish.  Just the thing to put a little zing in my step.


I fit in some of the normal weekend stuff too - things like laundry, cleaning and grocery shopping.  But I also made time to sit down with photoshop and finally figure out how to use textures (thanks to Kim K. for the great textures.) 

The arboretum called out for a little old school music, including Rickie Lee Jones:

I love this post...especially the train picture you worked with in photoshop. I'm overdue for a new computer and I'm going to do all I can to make sure it has photoshop.
Rickie Lee....she's always good.
