Today was a good day! The rain was supposed to start last night but held off until mid morning today, just as I was driving to church. As always, it was a great day at church and I am prepared to face the week, renewed and centered.
By the time church got out, it was pouring. Like raining sideways pouring. I got home, changed my clothes, made a cup of hot cocoa and a chicken sandwich. Liesl thought that this was an excellent menu choice and assisted in the consumption of said sandwich. It was nice, cozy, and warm in the house, so she decided spread out on the sofa to take a nap. This time I thought that it was an excellent idea and asked her to scoot over. I took a good, deep nap. It was quite luxurious. Afterward, I did not want to harsh my mellow with vacuuming like I should, and picked up my book instead.
After a short visit with a friend, I came home, made dinner and picked up on my stitching. I am working on my first Mary Englebreit card. I am having fun with it. I am stitching it on high count Aida cloth. It makes it go kind of quickly. The colors are very Mary Englebreit. I am hoping to post a photo tomorrow.
As a side note, I have to say that I really miss ME's magazine. I love her sense of really happy colors. Plus she seems to share a love of the the same retro/vintage periods that I do. Her magazine was just so happy. I hope someday that it returns.
