Now that's a great way to simplify life......
How organized was I today?! Well I waved darlings good-bye at 8 am, silently singing the Hallelujah chorus but outwardly putting on the appropriate "gosh, I'm going to miss you" face, (a week of watching DVD's was starting to get to me) raced around feeding chooks, calves, assorted pets, cleaned house and had my walk.
IT WAS TIME!! I walked into my Quilting room, lovingly turned everything on, lovingly fondled some fabric and thought about the blissful next 5 hours I had. Then the power went off......for the next 6 hours!
So the only thing that was done today was that my Christmas boxes were fully packed and the embroidery was just about finished on my neighbors baby blanket. I was sitting there in absolute peace and quiet thinking "how would it be if we never had power?" It really doesn't bear thinking about does it. As much as I adore the old Singer sewing machines, it would take me that long to get my housework done I don't know when I'd ever get to use it!
So Joy in Daily living today is that no matter what other troubles we have, at least we have power! Also, the kids and their friends have just had a lovely hour in the pool and we managed to see Archie arguing with a Kangaroo outside the fence. Huge excitement because even though Australia has kangaroos they are not normally seen in the backyard!
Will be interesting to see if the photos come up today as I'm having trouble and only getting writing. One is meant to be today's work George's baby blanket that now needs heads and legs for the sheep and I think that will about d. George is the fourth child in 5 1/2 years for my neighbors and the first boy. Mum likes windmills and dad likes sheep, hence the blanket. The other photo is Archie v the Kangaroo.
