One Day - Seriously Not Enough

Best weekend day ever! Fabulous cup of coffee to start the day. Trip to Farmer's Market. Breakfast at  Harvey's, the best diner in the tri-state area. Then worked in the yard. Then time in the Bubble! Now we are watching Alphas on Netflix. All topped off by perfect crisp cool autumn weather! But the kicker is that today is World Card Making Day. (Too bad I didn't realize this while we were out and about! I might have treated myself to a trip to Hobby Lobby or Michael's! I seriously don't think one day is sufficient. I think it should include a day or more off from work too!
