Mellow Monday

Today was a gray and foggy day here on the Monterey Peninsula. Therefore, it was a good day to be home. You know all of that stuff that accumulates that you say, "When I have ten minutes, I'll take care of that." Well, today was the day to attend to that stuff. I made phone calls that had to be made, took care of correspondence, and sorted through paperwork. I actually got a lot accomplished, so I am feeling really good about it.

I had the rest of the afternoon to read, nap and stitch. I am currently reading Anna Karenina, which is very good. I so love the fact that classics are free on Kindle! I have been meaning to read this book for a long time, so it feels good to have started. As always when I read, I ended up dozing off and ended up taking a really good nap.

I spent the rest of the afternoon, indulgently stitching, and watching bad daytime television. This piece is so pretty. Now that I have the quilt backstitch almost completed, I have the reference point that I need to start the lettering. Yay! I have been really excited about starting the new section. Hopefully by Wednesday I will be able to get it started.

Your star is looking great! I have also downloaded Anna and stsrted to read it, but something interupted that, and I have not yet gone back to it. Maybe next week.
