The weather has been a bit erratic today. We’ve had overcast skies, moving toward sunshine. Hail and rain and then back to sunshine again. So, it was the perfect excuse to spend the afternoon indoors at my sewing machine. I fell in love with this pattern. There is such a great 60’s/70’s mood to it. It was turned into a lovey for a little gal with a vintage vibe and is now fresh from the dryer and sitting on my ironing board awaiting it’s final press, before it gets sent to a special little someone…
This week seems to be more of a roller coaster ride than last week for some reason. I woke up bleary eyed to the alarm going off. It was still dark outside. I laid there for a few moments, running through everything I needed to do today to prep for tomorrow. I was under the dreamy-eyed impression that tomorrow would be Thursday and after a few minutes, I realised that it wasn’t Wednesday at all, in fact it was only Tuesday!
I don’t know how that could be? So much always happens on a Monday, it feels by the time we go to bed and wake up again, we should be much farther along in the week! Oh well, Tuesday it is and I can’t change that, so I’m just gonna hold on and enjoy the ride!
The first week back after a break is always the hardest. At least it is for us. I’m so happy that we’ve made it to Friday. Here’s to a great weekend run, hot coffee, a long hot shower, eating popcorn, watching movies, hanging out, listening to records and just being. Here’s to the weekend! Long may it last!
While listening to the radio this weekend we discovered a group we had not come across before, or at least knowingly heard them. They are the Bombay Dub Orchestra. The piece played was called “Mumtaz”.
I’ve not been able to get it out of my head. We got the album on Spotify and I’ve been playing it non-stop! I even listened to it this morning while walking through the woods. It reminds me of a piece of music that a former yoga teacher of mine would play during class. I find it intoxicating. It’s music that lifts your soul and makes you want to go on grand adventures.
I’ve been absent for the past few days because I’ve been lost in the land of a red-headed curly haired cherub, tiny baby toes and two wagging lab tails and I couldn’t have been any happier. I even got to see the Wienermobile! What a treat! As we move into this weekend, I wish everyone a blessed Easter. Happy weekend! Long may it last!
Last week I was a day ahead, this week I seem to be running a day behind. Maybe by next week, I’ll have caught up with myself. The sun came out to play yesterday and it was dazzling. The Japanese magnolias are beginning to flower around the neighbourhood and I love the shape of their blossoms.
The way it pinches together almost claw like, forming the shape of a finial resting on top of a bed post. The creamy milky colour of the outside petals with the the slightest bit of dark raspberry pink striped down the edges.
Once the buds open, the pink becomes more prominent. And when the sun shines through the petals they look like stained glass or the perfect cup of strawberry pink sorbet. Spring is “springing” and it’s making me so very happy. I just wish the sun would come out and play again today. Where are you Mr. Sunshine?
