Today is officially the last day of school for two weeks. The Tween is all dressed up in blue and off to the second day of her school sports carnival. She is not a competitor but tells me that she ‘coaches’ her friend who is. 🙂
She was telling me this morning that the school has awards for costumes. Yesterday it was for homemade costumes and today the awards are for those that are store bought. She was disappointed that the young fellow who made a blue Tardis didn’t place yesterday but agreed that the three young men who made red Transformers costumes (that actually transformed into a car) were pretty cool. She was also pretty impressed with the Barbies in their boxes that placed. I look forward to hearing what costumes there were at the carnival today.
Today, I am off sewing. I just have to bind the Tween’s quilt. I have spent the week hand sewing lace to the front of it to cover my most obvious mistakes where the ‘tracks’ don’t line up exactly. I still have about 5 more lace pieces to go to finish that. I promise photos when I finally finish. Really.
This morning I have been ‘playing’ in photoshop once more using a photo I took of a flower about four years ago as the base. I do enjoy spending time creating.
I have used this quote from the Buddha before but it is one that I like very much.
Well, this week has not seen much in the way of achievements however it has been a week well spent with loved ones (and that is always a blessing).
I did get the linen closet sorted out and I have been working on the quilt. My house is not ‘neat as a pin’ but it is comfortable. Migraines have been plaguing me this week. Not sure why but I hope they pass soon. 😦
The coming two weeks will be very relaxed as the Miss won’t be at school. We are discussing the option of going away for a road trip for a week or so out west. I would like to go a fair way but finances limit how much time we can take to travel and how far we go. We’re also going to go and spend a couple of days with my parents.
In the event of going away, I will schedule my posts and check in when I can on my iPad. 🙂 No use posting on that thing as it drives me insane. lol
Well everyone. Have a lovely day. 🙂 It sure is beautiful here in my part of Oz. The sun is shining. The magpies are warbling. The day is clear and cold. The Garden Gnome is off bushwalking again this morning in the mountains and a part of me is jealous because I love being in the mountains. (I just dislike climbing them on two legs). I am meeting up with friends for sewing and a chat. What more could a girl want?
I hope you also have a blessed day. 🙂
