(Remember when Bill and I went to Hobbiton? Oh, that was SO cozy!)
Hello! Another week of January has begun and it hasn't been boring. I had book club today and tomorrow Bill has a colonoscopy. Boo, right? It's routine and easy peasy but the PREP is horrible, as many of you know.
For book club we read Thus Far and No Further by Rumer Godden (I know I already told you what book we were reading) and the discussion was very rich. It's a real treat to read her descriptions of life on a tea plantation. I recommend. (Gretchen, since you are in India now, you might like reading it!)
Our girls and I are doing Weight Watchers again. The program is new and fairly painless. I am much too round and I'd love to be able to hop spritely about someday(that may be too lofty of a goal! LOL!) Anyway, I've definitely been eating more wholesome foods and it's good for my heart (I feel compelled to take pretty good care of my ticker).
Here's a little pre-February pink. In Thus Far and No Further, Rumer Godden says that every room should have a little bit of pink. It could be on a decorative bowl or in the lining of a curtain. It could be a printed rug. Do you have any pink in your house? I do love pink.
I sewed some purple pants today. They are meant to be bloomers worn with a dress (I might make the dress tomorrow when we return from Bill's procedure). I've yet to make the top (100 Acts of Sewing). I will.
I've been knitting socks and working on sweater finishes. I am also plugging away on a Sockhead hat.
I've been working on organizing my embroidery threads in a notebook (little bobbins tucked in plastic pockets).
I am already craving flowers. It's way too early, but when I look at pictures of our garden I miss the lovely blooms.
I must buy some hyacinth bulbs.
I hope you are feeling inspired, loved, at peace, and satisfied.
God be with you, kind visitor.
