daybook ::34::

 . . . my little Bailey. . . who - after 'helping' his Grandpa outside in the yard - 'came a courtin' at the backdoor with this little posy. . .!

for today :: November 7, 2010

outside my window. . .   clear & sunny. (. . . or as the couple from Minnesota reminded me the other day. . . "The reason why we live here in the winter!")

I am thinking. . . about my brother (Scott). He is having to have a hip replacement surgery tomorrow.

from the kitchen. . .  egg white omelette with some sharp cheddar (yum!), toast & coffee. (& there will be more coffee today. . . lots more coffee!)

I am wearing. . .  t-shirt & comfy J.Jill pants.

I am creating. . .  a Secret Santa little project, a new stitchery, & a new fabric line! (. . . that should keep me out of trouble today!)

I am remembering. . .  Pearl Harbor. . . & how far we've come with the relations with Japan. It is wonderful to see how two nations can heal & become great supporters & allies! ( . . . we need to remember that for the future. . .)

I am reading. . .   'Decision Points' - by George W. Bush . . . (an amazing book.)

I am hoping . . .  to whittle-down my designs choices for the next Durham-Anew line. . . so many pretty choices!

I am hearing. . .  Michael W. Smith's 'Christmastime'  cd. . . (love it!)

around the house. . .  bit's of Christmas twinkle here & there!

I am going. . .  to give Bailey his much needed bath today! (. . . been putting it off for days!)

one of my favorite things. . .  singing to Christmas music out-loud in the car & not caring if anyone sees!

a few plans for the rest of the week. . . getting the first round of design ideas for the next Durham-Anew line on their way to Lecien; finish my Secret Santa project; get a couple more things listed up on the website; stitch & stitch some more (!)

from my picture journal . . .
 . . . you know who. . . Mr. Special Delivery himself (!)

I too love to sing out loud in the car when I am by myself which was yesterday. I noticed I was becoming somewhat of a hermit at home so decided to treat myself to a double latte for the road put in one of my favorite Claire Lynch cds and took off for three of my favorite quilt shops. I felt I needed to do my part for their business for the day. Found some lovely treasures, most of which will be used for making Christmas gifts for quilty friends and one of my daughters..Enjoy the season and love the photo of your little furkid.. Miss mine very much.

If snowmen had a dog, I know it would look just like Bailey. His eyes are like little chunks of coal! What a doll he is.

I want to read out and hug that sweetie pie, posey and all! Your day sounds wonderful!

He is so cute! I think he brought the flower in for you! Sounds like you are busy doing fun stuff, that's the best kind of busy! Enjoy!

How I wish I could reach through the screen and give Bailey a little "cuddle"... his photos always warm my heart...

What a sweet photo of Bailey! I wouldn't worry about people seeing you sing in the car - think of all the people we see "talking to themselves" on the street - until we notice their blue tooth thingy! That's still one of the weirdest sights to see, although it still doesn't beat the fellow we saw knitting something purple as he was driving on Rte 93 north in rush hour! So singing along in your car...no big deal! :-)

sweet Bailey.
Hope your brother's surgery goes well and he has a speedy recovery.
