Outside my window...grey skies
I am thinking...I hope it doesn't rain. Again.
I am thankful...for the central heating this cold weather and for Options 40 calorie hot chocolate, with half a teaspoon of expensive vanilla...
In the kitchen...leftover veg mince curry from last night
I am wearing...jeans, favourite warm jumper, fluffy socks and my black suede boots
I am creating... a baby blanket as per my last post. I am restraining myself from starting the poncho I want to knit next. The wool arrived Saturday, it's purple and lovely and soft and I can't wait to get started on it
I am going...to spend the day with my Mum and Auntie, looking at old photographs
I am wondering...if I have time to finish this post before I have to dash for the bus
I am reading...Still Missing, by Beth Gutcheon
I am hoping...for sunshine
I am looking forward to...a talk on Victorian Workhouses that the Prof and I are going to this evening
I am learning...more stitches and knitting techniques, after years of only knitting scarves and dishcloths
Around the house...clutter and laundry, as ever
I am pondering...how lovely it will be when we have our bedroom decorated and the Prof has built the fitted wardrobes he is designing
One of my favourite things...surprisingly, All Bran. Only when accompanied by a chopped apple, and perhaps some berries
A few plans for the rest of the week: book club on Wednesday, and more knitting
A favourite quote for today...
Rules for Happiness:
Something to do
Someone to love
Something to hope for
- Immanuel Kant
