Today for the letter S I am taking part in The Simple Woman’s Daybook
. I haven’t done it for awhile. Today seems like a good day for it. Check out the link to see what other women are up to today. And if you’re a blogger, join in! 🙂
Outside my window
… The sky and the lake are both the same milky grey colour. After the last few days of warm sunshine, having a cool, sprinkly sort of day is kind of nice.
I am thinking…that it’s time to start getting organized for our trip to Fox Lake. By this I mean which craft/sewing projects should I take? And should I take one sewing machine or two? Which yoga videos should I take? A selection or just my favourite one or two? (and does it really matter because hello- the chances of actually doing a daily practice may be slim)
I am thankful…oh, yes I am! The list is too long to write it all down.
In the kitchen…no mess! Yesterday I baked 2 apple pies for the freezer, a pumpkin pie to enjoy over the next couple of days, Sam’s home cooked dog food, and enough spaghetti to last for 2 nights. So no cooking today, and no cooking supper tonight!
I am wearing…denim pedal pushers, a grey top, my favourite brown sweater that could really stand to be new (but maybe that’s why it’s my favourite – well used/loved), black ankle socks and my birks. I’m sort of a socially unacceptable mess in the wardrobe department today.
I am creating… I just finished sewing a dress! Now I just need someplace to wear it! I’ll do a blog post about it eventually…it doesn’t really fit into any of the remaining letters for the April A-Z blog challenge.
I am going…Nowhere, at the moment. This morning I went to the Shuswap Quilt Guild meeting and learned about rectangle blocks (the kind that look like the top of a Kleenex box ) and then to the doctor. That’s enough “going” for today.
I am wondering…how my son is settling into his new job/house/lifestyle in Vancouver.
I am reading… two books at the same time. Both by Elizabeth Berg. Say When and Tapestry of Fortunes. (obviously I like Elizabeth Berg, lol!)
I am hoping…that my plantar fasciitis heals up soon so I can get out on the trails!
I am looking forward to…the end of April because I am tired of having to come up with a blog post every single day! It’s been fun but I’m ready for the challenge to be over.
I am learning…how to use a twin needle and also how to sew a nice looking hem on a stretch knit fabric. Wasn’t very successful on the hem, it looks very amateur…. any tips, anyone?
Around the house…dust bunnies to sweep. kitty and doggy footprints to mop, a rug to vacuum, a bathroom to polish.
I am pondering…the differences between the verbs to ponder and to think. And why are both in this list anyway? Aren’t they the same thing?
A favorite quote for today… sadly, it’s the same quote as last time. Because it’s good! (you’re welcome).
“If we walk far enough,” says Dorothy, “we shall sometime come to someplace.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
One of my favorite things…cold left over pizza and tea, earl grey, hot – for breakfast! Served with a good book in a corner of the couch and don’t talk to me until I’m done!
A few plans for the rest of the week…I’d like to cut out some pieces for a new quilt and start stitching a couple of bookmarks. And spend an hour or so on the next chapter(s) of the novel.
A peek into my day…kind of a ho-hum day today.
I’m participating in the Blogging From A-Z challenge. One blog post for each letter of the alphabet, each day of April (except Sunday).
