FOR TODAY, September 29th, 2015
Outside my window ...
It's totally daylight. I am up ever so late this morning. I had two nights in a row where I had a difficult time falling asleep and so it's been after one in the morning before I have slept at all. It happens from time to time . . .
I am thinking ...
How hard it is to believe that we are at the end of September already! I can't believe how fast the year is flying by!
I am thankful for ...
Modern technology and healthcare. We should never take them for granted.
In the kitchen ...
On my "To Cook" list ...
These Chicken Tacos look really good. I love tacos and I love chicken. I think I would love Chicken Tacos. From Simple Fare, Fairly Simple.
I am creating ...
I did another painting yesterday. This one is mostly water colour. I quite like it. I would like to sell it, so if anyone is interested in buying it at all, let me know. It's larger than the others. About 9 inches by 12 inches. Here's your chance to own an original piece of my artwork.
A free pattern for a Felt Christmas Ornament. From Val Laird Designs.
A hand sewn Chickadee Christmas Ornie from Squishy Cute Designs. I love it!
This is so cute. From Noia Land. It's a Spanish blog but has a translator.
Deer and Fox Christmas Ornaments a free pattern from Cutesy Crafts.
I am reading ...
My Sister's Secret, by Tracy Buchanan
This is the story of three sisters: Faith, Hope and Charity. They have a very close relationship and spend their days on the beach, dreaming about finding hidden submerged forests. It's also the story of Charity's daughter, Willow, who has inherited her mother's compulsion to dive and as a memorial to her parents sets out to visit the submerged forests on a map she finds in her Mum's belongings. The mysterious photographer, Niall Lane, seems to be visiting the same forests whilst exhibiting his Charity collection and it's only a matter of time before Willow bumps into him and uncovers some family secrets. I loved the gradual unfurling of the family secrets as Willow peels back layer after layer and uncovers secrets even her Aunt Hope knew nothing about. It's quite a sad story of childhood sweethearts who were really meant to be together but for unfortunate circumstances and underhand manipulation.
This is the first book I have read by this author and it won't be the last.
I am hoping ...
That I don't have to wait too long for my tests, and that I am okay with them when I do get to have them. I mean not too nervous and stuff. Although I am grateful for them, I don't relish the thought of swallowing a camera. sigh . . . or the other.
Makes me smile ...
Pretty girls all in a row. My Sweet Imaginations.
I am learning ...
Trying to not be a front seat "back seat driver." It's hard. I bite my tongue. But he can still tell. I think men just drive differently than women. 'Nuff said.
Dreaming About ...
Glass door knobs . . .
Secret Gardens . . .
Pretty bed linens . . .
Vintage teacups . . .
Gingham ribbons . . .
A favourite Quote for the day ...
ღϠ₡ღ¸. ✻´´¯`✻.¸¸.Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ. (
For last year's words belong to last year's language,
and next year's words await another voice
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
One of my favourite things ...
Time pieces . . .
A peek into my day ...
Moon gazing . . . if you get up early enough, you can still do it. Isn't it gorgeous?
And that's my daybook for this week.
