Outside My Window. . . are the makings for a beautiful spring-like day. To the east is a faint glow of gold: the sun is breaking the horizon; to the west, a bank of clouds signaling a change in the weather - a storm or maybe just wind. On the air is the faint smell of damp earth.
I am thinking. . . of the month ahead and of the projects that I am planning.
I am thankful... that winter's grasp is loosening.
In the kitchen... the water for my tea is sputtering on the stove.
I am wearing... a yellow top and khaki pants
I am creating... the final (it is possible?) pair of socks from the scrap yarn bag. One sock is passed the gusset, and the other just had the heel turned.
I am planning... to do more sewing this week. I have more baby blankets to make and some taggy ribbon blankets with the scraps. I want to finish working with the flannel before the end of the month.
I am reading... Forever Odd by Dean Koontz. I am making slow progress.
I am praying... my doctor can give me some answers on some recent concerns. I have an appointment today.
I am hearing... the neighbor's pickup idling. It's comforting rumble reminds me of a purring cat.
One of my favorite things... Fitted Sheets. How on earth did people manage to keep a bed made without them? I am certain the inventor must have been a woman.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) volunteer shift and doctor's appointment today, b) delivery expected tomorrow of a necessary item, c) knitting night, d) judge at a local elementary school science fair on Thursday. (I've never done that before so it will be interesting.)
A quote worth sharing. . .
There is no cure for curiosity.
