The Perfect Day :)

I had a lovely wee day out
last Sunday.
Admittedly it was an pretty early start,
out of bed at 5.30 (yuk)
and on the road by 6.30.
Off to Queenstown for the day.
It was a bit of a last minute decision...
just felt the need to get out
and away
for a day.
Jake had a race on up there
so I decided I would go with him.
The day couldn't have been more perfect.
You know how sometimes they just happen,
those perfect days.
Not necessarily because it's anything
fantastically
out of the ordinary
or amazingly different
or incredibly exciting,
but just because it's just perfect
and in a sense it is all of those things:)
 
 
The sun was shining all day,
hot and clear,
and I took off with my camera for a walk
through the bush
while Jake did his practice runs.
 
It's been a while since I've had some serious
camera time.
So I just wandered and snapped.
 

 
 
 

 
 



 
 
After the race we went into town,
found the most amazing bakery,
bought fresh bread and cakes,
coffee and juice,
and found a patch of grass
beside the little creek that runs through the town,
where we sat in the sun and ate our lunch,
Perfect.
I have to say that the chocolate fudge was so
 perfect that I just had to go back and
buy some more.
It was as close to chocolate heaven that you will ever get.
Unbelievably perfectly perfect chocolate fudge.
 
All too soon it seemed like we had to start
the drive home.
 
 
 
But yeah :)
It was the perfect day,
and what's even more perfect
is that I think I have found my
stitching
mojo
again :))))
A very very sweet friend
was visiting this week.
She gave me a gorgeous magazine
absolutely filled with
very sweet ideas ...
and I am inspired.
I will be back to show you the first one soon.
It's all to do with easter:)
See you later
Jenny.
