What started out as not such a great day has turned into quite a lovely one. Isn't that often the way? We have had another couple of unseasonably warm days, record breaking even, and I'm not fond of the heat. Yesterday, I did a bit of gardening and retreated to the indoors. However, my air conditioner is not in yet, and between that and an aching knee, likely from the gardening, I didn't get much sleep.
I've been missing my sewing machine and am waiting for some rain to get back to it. However, when I settle down for a bit of TV time before bed, I've been knitting a second baby afghan, more boy's colors this time, not for anyone special (yet), just because they're fun to knit!
After the long weekend, I had a couple of errands to do this morning and then I made lunch for my husband and I. When he works in town, he sometimes comes home for lunch which is quite nice for both of us. I relaxed and took some time to enjoy myself despite the heat.
One thing I do like about the summer is changing the heavier curtains for some more summery shears. I love their misty effect and the way they sway in the breeze with the open windows.
I don't need a big bouquet to stir my soul, even the tiniest of sprigs from my yard can provide days of enjoyment..
And then to make the day even better, the mailman brought me a package from Leslie of MarveLes Art Studios. I could not have been more amazed at what she had taken the time to put together for me. You know how sometimes you're a little down and it happens that something comes to you just when it is needed? Well here it is.
