Daybook entry #7
Outside my window ...
are my beloved roses. The day is refreshingly cool after a hot spell.
I am thinking ...
I hate housework. Over the years, I have come up with all sorts of strategies to motivate me to get through the household tasks. Today is one of those days where there is so much to do, I don't know where to start. I have taken myself aside and we have decided to 'just do SOMETHING'! I dug out this little stash of squares, and have put them next to my sewing machine.
I am stitching ... therefore, between menial household tasks, little 9-patch blocks as a reward for my impressive domesticity!
I am thankful for ... healthy, energetic children, even though they fight with each other and wear me out!
From the kitchen ... I need to make up a batch of Thimbelina's Easy Scrolls. These have been a hit for school lunches. I make them at my leisure, wrap them, freeze them and thereby avoid the dreaded sandwich making in the mornings.
I am thinking ... of whipping up one of these little cuties for a new niece: a fluffy*stuffy bunny. Jenny over at Allsorts has very generously posted a free pattern for her bunny and a dress to match.
From my picture journal ... a favourite photo of my waterlily, flowering right now. I have added it to my wallpaper page if you'd like to share it!
Happy house-working to those of you enjoying that pleasure today! Bloom x
