To affect the quality of the day...

We had a great weekend, lovely weather and time spent together. Yesterday Tim and I went for a hike in the Uwharrie Forest. Saw a tree neither of us recognized so took a picture and brought home a leaf. Identified it as a Chestnut Oak. There sure a lots of Oak varieties.

This afternoon we went in to Charlotte for our friend Patricia's graduation with a Masters Degree. Patricia takes care of our cats when we take long trips. She's also our foster kitty, Simon's mom. We then drove out to the Whitewater Center so Tim could show it to me. It's one of the places he races at. Came home and grilled some lamb chops for dinner, and now we're just relaxing.

I had to sit down and make a card for Patricia this morning. I chose The Art of Life stamp set because of the great verse - To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts by Henry David Thoreau. I used two shades of pink and a brown. A little ribbon, a clip and some eyelets finished it off.
