- Mulling over whether or not to start a crowd fundraising effort to assist with next years plans.
- Reading the latest edition of Australian Quilters Companion Magazine, where I have a quilt pattern featured in their special edition on Precut fabrics.
- Taking a break in between the second load of laundry, and putting away the groceries.
- Drinking a tall glass of iced ginger beer – and thinking that a cup of tea would have been better.
- Trying to get my head around the next round of organisational juggling that is required for the kids and their activities this term. I swear they don’t do that many extra curricular things but it sure does seem like too many.
- Picking my way around the messy house and feeling a tad disgruntled that my hubby is away this coming weekend. But thinking about some fun stuff for the kids and I to do together. A swim maybe. Or a country fair.
- Enjoying the still blue sky, after a rainy stormy windy week.
- Hoping to sell some of my quilts — listed on etsy. Go on!
- Reading … nothing at the moment. I am reluctant to begin a new week with some more than urgent deadlines looming.
- Planning another bulk cooking and freezing day. So good!
