Exploring our Local Area (plus Menu and MMSM)

Pat finally figured out our internet issues early Sunday afternoon. Which meant that we had all of a few hours left of daylight in the weekend to enjoy ourselves contented with the fact that we would have access to the entirety of the world wide web again.

We chose to take a hike/stroll/walk/meander through some of the Weeks Bay estuary area. It was just lovely to enjoy the swampy, boggy area without the threat of mosquitoes. However, we are intent on visiting the trails again once there's a bit more greenery (everything but the biggest trees seemed to be hibernating.) In the meantime, we enjoyed re-learning the names of our local trees and taking in a few beautiful views of the bay.
 

We even were able to locate and log one of the geocaches in the area! 

Now that I've got the internet back at my disposal, let me share the newest necklace in my shop. I'm seriously in love with this one, AND it's still available!!
Vintage Beauty Necklace
Remember, there are still a few items in the ON SALE section that will be expiring in the next few days! As well, I should be adding at least one more item to the shop this evening.

I haven't had much time today for creative endeavors, as I'm trying to get myself back on track on the domestic front. Good news though, I did get my meal plan made for the week. There are lots other menu ideas over at I'm an Organizing Junkie for today's Menu Plan Monday. Here's mine for your mouthwatering pleasure!
