Emery is at work today and the house is mine. I decided NOT to get dressed but to stay in my pajama's for as long as I wanted. Lunch time rolled around quickly as I had been so busy sewing I lost track of time. I could eat what I wanted, well within reason (a meal of chocolate chip cookies is what sounded good but its not exactly good for me) Crumpets and tea sounded just perfect. A cup of Cherry Vanilla tea, two crumpets with Lime curd spread on them. I savored each and ever bit and sip. My stash of cherry tea is dwindling and so I must use restraint.
The sun peeked in and out from behind the clouds, unsure of what it wanted to do I guess. This type of hide and seek in the sky, creates some wonderful shadows.
After my little lunch I sat down to spin in the quiet part of the day. Music, low in the background, dulcimer music...perfect for spinning.
I thought about gift giving today. Thoughts of Christmas beginning to pepper conversations. I always thought that you should give gifts to who you want to, oh sure there are some of obligation but does it matter if you give a gift and don't get one in return ? I don't think so. My thinking runs along the line of I want to give a gift simply because I want to give one, has nothing at all to do with if I get one in return. Same thing for Christmas cards. I send them to people whether I get one or not.
I love Christmas card and would love to exchange with blog readers. If anyone is interested in exchanging Christmas cards, let me know in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I suppose though I wouldn't be able to do more than say 50 : )
Time to get back to my spinning.... I need yarn for a new barn bonnet
