for today :: May 5, 2010
outside my window. . . the jasmine & orange blossoms are still working up a storm. . . it smells wonderful! . . . the sun is up. . . the weatherman says the sun is gonna be working hard this week! We're warming up!
I am thinking. . . of new ways to design/present my patterns. Met with a shop owner yesterday & got some good feedback. . .
from the kitchen. . . coffee . . . so far. There will be salads this week. . . lots of salads. . . . Always the meal of choice when the weather warms. . . (well - that & gelato!)
I am wearing. . . grey tee, pink shorts. . .
I am creating. . . some piecing & applique today!. . .
I am remembering. . . how much time I save when Dad is here to be my pattern stuffer - & post office/UPS deliverer . . . (Dad is visiting my brother & family in Minneapolis for 2 weeks)
I am reading. . . A Lineage of Grace (Francine Rivers) . . . (slowly - the stories have so much to take in!)
I am hoping . . . that Dad & Scott (my brother) have a great time - filled with wonderful memories.
I am hearing. . . Lots of birdie chirping & an owl or two (there are a pair nesting next-door!).
around the house. . . fabric, fabric everywhere. . . & a good deal of floss thrown in too!
I am going. . . to be a quilt top making machine today!
one of my favorite things. . . our backyard. . . not at all what someone would think of for an Arizona backyard. . . ours is green with lots of flowers . . . (the only cactus is in a pot!) . . . It's my Dad's wonderful stamp on our home.
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . finishing up as many things as I can for Market. . . (& I'm not even doing a booth!)
from my picture journal . . .
. . . one of the sweet bloomers in the backyard. . .
