For everything you have missed,
you have gained something else.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Hmm. Folding done, tick. Ironing finished, tick. Kettle boiling, tick. I'm happy with my lot. What a lovely Sunday, with some of my jobs out of the way, it's time to stitch. I'm hacking away at some gifts for my workmates and what fun. It is my first year at this job and it was the best move I have made, workwise. From working in one library (23years) to another library, they are completely different. I miss the customers from the first library, but I have gained so much in this job. Monday's are great, no more Mondayitis for me.
Well two of my darlings came home from V8 supercars yesterday looking like a pair a walking beetroots. I was going to take a photo of them to show you, but that might've scared you off. They're both licking their wounds today, so I will be extra caring today, poor little petals.
A friend of mine gave me the centre part of this table runner already made. Boy was I happy. I looked at it for a while and decided it would like nice as a christmas table runner. I remember sitting there for simply ages, just quilting around the centre piece of it. Every christmas it comes out on display.
Cory snuck up on us having tea the other night, scared the beejeebee's out of us. We were all very hungry that night, I'm glad he didn't start taking photo's quietly, because we were really stuffing the tucker down our throats.
I love Pixie's uniform, no shirt and shorts. My young boys have always done that. As soon as they see Dad with no shirt on, off comes theirs. They are an interesting specimen those males. Wouldn't be without them though.
Oh I had to move my girls. This is as far as Benjamin or the other ladies would let them out of the chook house. I'm going to send that lot to the naughty corner, I tell you. I have another big cage that I put my sweetpeas into and they started scratching, and laid down in the sun, they were really loving themselves sick! I mentioned about getting some more of these chooks and Pixie was happy about more coming.
I went for a cruise around the garden yesterday and I just love my Elle Marie, see the lovely colour of the flower. So pretty.
My friend Heather came over and had some lovely afternoon tea on Friday and the little darling swapped her copy of Handmade for my newest copy of Homespun. It's very funny when we swap our magazines over, because then we both sit at the table flicking through the magazines. We are a pair of nut cases.
I can see some lovely things in this magazine. If I keep looking nothing else in the way of housework will get done. I'll be terribly sad about that. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Kind regards, Anita.
