A Good Day for Sewing
Well, it looks like today will be a good day to spend on my sewing projects. I feel like I can certainly get quite a bit done and get that "to be mended pile" out of the way. It is always a good feeling to get something finished and put away to where you don't have to look at it for awhile. I am terribly guilty of letting my mending pile up. When the weather is nice I like to be outside getting fresh air and getting projects done out there. But today is not a nice weather kind of day. It is pouring down rain and a little on the chilly side. The fire inside the house is quite nice to have on days like this and nothing is as relaxing as sitting by the fire doing something that you enjoy. Today will be that kind of day with a little sewing and playing board games with the children after schoolwork is done. Then maybe I will take some time to read that book I have been working on for a couple of months now. Usually I am just too tired to read much and by the time I sit down to read, I can only get through a couple of pages before my eyes start to get very heavy. The only downfall to the day is keeping a toddler locked in the house all day. They get a little bit stir crazy when they can't get outside and use up that excess energy. Maybe we will have a lively dance session to burn off that energy before nap time! Well, I believe I am off to have a wonderful day to rest my weary bones and tend to things that get put aside when the weather is nice. Have a very blessed day!
