In short bursts

Shimelle's prompt was about finding a pattern, perhaps something to do on a regular basis. My first thought was that I didn't want to tie myself down to something regular but then Sharyn posted an idea, on the forum, that she found on Ali Edward's Blog and I liked the sound of doing something like this from time to time. So here it is. I have since found out this came from The Simple Woman's Daybook, you can find here.

Outside my window
...I see into the conservatory where the string of fairy lights is reflecting in all the glass.

I am thinking...about getting ready to visit my parents and seeing my son in Dartmouth.

I am thankful for...the wonderful company of my daughter, the gas fire warming my toes, my helpful, smiling hubby and knowing I will get better after a rotten cold.

From the kitchen...homemade spaghetti bolognese, with a sprinking of parmesan and some shared warm bread.

I am wearing...pink top, no surprise there, black comfy trousers and black cardigan done up with a kilt pin.

I am creating...tags, a la Tim Holtz style, with embossing and inking and bits of sparkle.

I am going...to be better tomorrow.

I am reading...magazines at the moment, Beads & Beyond, Craft Stamper and Country Living.

I am hoping...my daughter will settle in to her new job.

I am hearing...the sound of our clock chiming 10pm.

Around the house...i see lots to do, bare plaster that needs painting, that goes for ceilings too, a kitchen floor that could look a little cleaner and a pile of freshly laundered clothes ready to put away.

One of my favourite things...taking time out to talk to my hens.

A few plans for the rest of the week...dodging raindrops in dartmouth, a hug from my son, dinner at Kendrick's, making fabric decorations with my daughter.

A picture to share...

I LOVE this! Absolutely LOVE your list! I've used it before on my blog (also got it from Ali E.). Really didn't think to use it again, until now. =]

Nice list - I've seen it on Ali E's site, but haven't used it yet. Nicely done.
