Rain, rain, go away

I think the rain is wreaking havoc with my Internet. I could not blog last night for anything. I watched my computer screen for a good 15 minutes waiting for Blogger to load. All was not lost. I'm reading a very interesting book recommended by my daughter Alison, The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up. This book is perfect for my frame of mind right now! I've been spending a lot of time reorganizing space since school ended, and reading this book is giving me incentive to carry on! I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I'm enjoying it!

I don't have much to show for yesterday. I did finish four more lavender pillows. They're so easy to make. My one disappointment is that my fabric stash is not dwindling nearly as quickly as I thought it might!

Other than the pillows, my day was filled with grocery shopping, chatting with daughter Alison on the phone, tidying my tatting corner, cooking, and playing with Sophia. I only have a few more days with Sophia and Joanne, so I have to make the most of our time together!


  1. I hope the sun comes out soon for you, here in the UK we have a heat wave coming up from Spain.

  2. I wish your tidying-bug would hit me!! I have so many things in absolute extreme need of (an explosion-ooops, did I really say that??) a complete organization over-haul that I am worn out just thinking about them and can't seem to get in motion to do something about them. At least I feel like you are encouraging me in the right direction!! :) Your new bags look nice too!! :)

  3. I've been watching a TV series about hoarding that has the same effect as your book! Though it's the negative side of the same coin.

  4. We could do with some rain at the moment. WAAAAYYYY too hot for my tidying project - the loft!!! There's a big window in the roof so I have that open but it's still a bit hot. Stopped as of midday today. Maybe I need to read that book too!!!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
