1. Flowers in the house are always a good thing, but when a ray of light peaks out from behind a cloud and hits them just so, then that is even better.
2. A lovely and unexpected gift of six eggs, given to me by a lady at school and laid by the school chickens that very same day. They have actual fresh chicken dirt (probably poo) on them and everything. She is responsible for the chickens, gardens, vegetable patch and woodland area (among many other things) and is a kindred spirit. I poached two of them for my lunch and they were as good as I hoped they would be, with the brightest orange yolks.
3. It's time to get the blankets out of the blanket box.
4. Stitching sunflowers onto my summer embroidery. This long overdue project has languished in the WIP basket for some time now, but this week I found my sewing mojo and have been enjoying working on this so much, to the point where I don't want it to end.
Thank you SO much for the response to the Cable and Cotton Giveaway. I have loved, just loved, reading all the comments and hearing where you are all from. It's disproportionately pleasing! You hail from all four corners of our land, and all over Europe too. And it's particularly interesting to hear how many of you have moved around before settling where you are now. Thank you for indulging me there.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. John is working so it's just the kids and I and a merry-go-round of swimming lessons, play dates and shopping for winter coats. Not quite wonderful, but it's the stuff of life and that's fine with me.
