what makes a delicious weekend

i've received my first rejection letter of the year. (not the sad day one might assume, for a writer it's par for the course) most lit journals answer within 4 months (for infrequently publishing ones, it can be longer) so this one was right on cue.

of the two most critical letter sentences you know which one i am holding on to most: "Unfortunately we are not able to publish your submission at this time. That being said, I enjoyed your piece and welcome further submissions." (it's like a bouquet of roses to me. ;)

mid easter long weekend, we are either eating a holiday meal or having leftovers inbetween. tho i love an all the trimmings dinner, not much can compare to a hearty turkey, mayo, and stuffing sandwich either.

not tons of time for crafts this weekend, but i squeezed in an instant art sandra lee esque project -- adorable IKEA tolsby frames + Go Rving advertisement cropped to fit.
signing off to collect story ideas, ready the house for easter dinner hosting, and read the stack of magazines waiting for me.
loved this quote: "Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for." - epicurus
and the blog post in which i found it.
