for today :: August 3, 2010
outside my window. . . the morning sunlight is peeking through the oak tree into my bedroom, making the prettiest patterns all over the quilt on my bed. . .
I am thinking. . . of what order to do the errands I'm doing this morning. . .
from the kitchen. . . so far coffee, some scrambled egg-whites w/ sharp cheddar cheese right after I finish my post. . . & butter to put out on the counter for cookie baking later. . .
I am wearing. . . pink tee & brown shorts . . . (will be changing before errands though!)
I am creating. . . lots of yo-yo's & some quarter square triangle blocks (not for the same project. . .)
I am remembering. . . how fast the summer goes by. . . (if I was still teaching - I would have to be back at work this week. . . eek!)
I am reading. . . 'Persuasion' by Jane Austen
I am hoping . . . for my new fabrics to get here quickly!
I am hearing. . . the birdies. . . especially one who seems to be giving me the 'what for' for letting the bird feeders go empty. (we have to when there is so much rain. . . but I will refill the finch feeder later. . . persistent little buggers!)
around the house. . . wool piled on the breakfast room table. . . all ready for delivery this morning!
I am going. . . to deliver a bunch of wool to a couple of local quilt shops, make the pieced quilt blocks for a new quilt, & start baking some cookies for a friend who is having a ton of folks come into town for a wedding.
one of my favorite things. . . Clover's yo-yo makers. . . they make yo-yo making so much easier & fun!
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . lots of time in the studio - & getting the website updating done (finally!)
from my picture journal . . .
I'm a softie for baby swans. . .
