All relationships have conflict and resolution..Our little family currently has one. Husband wants to take a vacation and drop a few thousand dollars going to a far away place and come home more ragged and stressed then he went left. Wife doesn't want to leave her cats, fish and ducks* so the matter is pretty well settled. She instead spends his money making his home appear more French Polynesian so he won't be tempted to wander and instead enjoy tranquil moments together in his gardens with said wife, cats, fish and ducks*. Conflict and resolution...... solved. Bora Bora is after all, a state of mind.
I haven't had much opportunity to knit because of gardening, redecorating (and my NBA team has made it to the quarter finals...go THUNDER!) so I thought I'd share what I've been doing since there isn't any progress reports on my knitting.
|Start with a killer sunset|
|Front yard (garden) oasis|
|Add the sound of trickling water|
|Don't forget the tropical plants|
Finally, be sure and carry the theme inside
Yeah, I've been busy, but soon I will be sewing cushion covers to match the decor. For now the cats are pretty pleased with me just using the towels!
(and let the theme spill out to the back yard or back garden)
Have a happy vacation!!! (We will be!)
