Just a Day of Tea and Crochet

The day was perfect.  Sunshine, blue skies...

Geraniums in bloom...

Green tea and golden Oreo cookies (double stuff, of course). 
Confession:  Okay, so I really had five cookies.  Who can eat just two?

And giving myself a crochet 'workout' to burn those Oreo calories.  My pink ripple blanket goes on and on (first posted here).  I'm calling it Forever and a Day because that's how long it will be before
I'm finished with it.

Hope you find some time to do something you love :-)

On My Nightstand

For me it was one of those rare evenings...
Dinner cooked, eaten and dishes cleared,
The boys hunkered down in their rooms playing video games doing homework,
hubby downstairs, happily at one with the sofa and TV,
doggies fed, walked and settled in.

Oh too good to be's 8:00pm and I can happily retreat to my comfy bed with a cup of tea and a good read.  I love these moments to myself.  It's one of those quiet joys in life :-)

On my nightstand:
Notebook to jot down all those yarn projects I will start someday
The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom
A Japanese crochet book
Cottage Style by Country Living Editors
A rose-scented candle

Good night!  Hope you enjoy some "you" time :-)
