Today has been busy...Joe had therapy this morning and I went over to the store and picked up some canned goods. There was a sale going on...so I stocked up on some things. When we got home....I fixed dinner quick and before we were done...the Eucharistic Minister was here from Church with Communion. We always look forward to his visits...we learn about what is going on at Church and who is sick etc. Then when he left there were groceries to be put away. I cleaned up the kitchen and as soon as I was done....flopped on the chair and rested. It seems like I'm always in the kitchen..either messing it up or cleaning. The dishwasher runs everyday and it is full. Just the two of us make so many dishes. Many women's jobs are repetitive. We do the same things over and over until we could do them in our sleep. Sometime I'd like a Freaky Friday and switch places with Joe. That would be very eye opening...I think.
Now, I have a couple of hours to myself...what will I do? First, I'll make some tea and get a cookie then sit and read for a while. Just getting into my new book. I really don't like having to finish a book in two weeks at the library. Sometimes, it's hard for me to finish one that quick.I'm not a speed reader...I like to relax with a book and take my time...savoring the author's words. I read some new books and they can't be renewed if someone is on the waiting list.
My sewing basket is full of little projects. I love simple little projects that I can pick up and do a little then put them down for another time.
My plants are happy and several are blooming. I tend to give them more care during the winter. In the summer....I'm outside and I kind of ignore them. I repotted my Christmas cactus yesterday. I read on the internet that you should repot them after they bloom and then put them in a cooler place for a rest. So mine is downstairs, in the window waiting for the time that it will go outside.
When that will be is a mystery. After all this snow....things should be in good shape in the garden. Lots of moisture and snow cover. I wonder if my little wildflower seeds are cozy under that blanket of snow? Time will only tell.
Have a nice afternoon....Balisha
I had a comment from Deb on the last post telling me to go to a website to see a felt project. Deb...this was so cute. I remember making these years ago. Thanks.
