Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

I will be taking a Blogging break for a while my friends! My gardening season is starting and I still have a lot of work to do on the house! I'm also focusing on my education. I will still host every week, but may not participate! I'm also continuing to work on my channels as a business venture; I've started a few podcasts as well!

Please continue to share your beautiful art and delicious dinners with us! I'll be back in July when things calm down a little!

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Petals! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it! And please showcase your foodie posts too for our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date!! πŸ˜‹

  1. Have a well deserved break Rain! We will miss you.

  2. Every now and then it's good to take a break from blogging. Enjoy your garden and good luck with all of your projects!

  3. I hope your time away is productive. Look after yourself please - and I love that waterlily photo.

  4. Rain, such a busy time of year, enjoy your blog break! I know you'll get lots done and I look forward to reading about it once things slow down again (whenever that is! lol)

  5. Love the waterlily. Take care and enjoy your break! Take care, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead.

  6. Enjoy your time away, Rain. We'll look forward to your return.

  7. Take care Rain, and best of wishes. We will be here upon your return.

  8. Dearest Rain, the water lily blossom is an eye-catcher!
    I can understand that you need a break to have time for your garden and other projects - I feel the same way, which is why I blog very little at the moment. But with my latest Costa Rica post, I'm happy to contribute some blossoms for your linkup - even some that look like Mick Jagger's lips 😁
    Have a good time!
    All the best 🌱🌿🌱

  9. Good luck with everything you do. Enjoy yourself!!

  10. Such a pretty water-lily.
    Enjoy your time away, and look forward to your return.

    All the best Jan

  11. have a lot on your plate!

  12. Hi, Rain! I'm sure that you will put your blog break to productive use. I will be excited to see what happens with your garden and business adventures! Please take care of yourself! I worry about you. The water lily is a soothing photo. Love and hugs to you!

  13. I've been neither cooking nor doing art! My garden looks great, though. Good luck on your gardening! See you on the other side.

  14. You are busy as a beaver! Enjoy your break!

  15. Rain, as your blog friends well know, you are always one busy lady with your gardening, art projects, pets and food prep, so we understand how a break can be needed. We wish you well and will look forward to your return whenever that may be.

  16. This Water Lily is wonderful, dear Rain.

    I wish you relaxing days. I know, you are always very hard-working and yes,each need sometimes a break.

    Hugs by Heidrun
