Today I'm . . .


::admiring:: the stack of fabric that I've turned into half square triangles.

::debating:: on a design to use said half square triangles.

::anticipating:: pizza eating and Christmas tree lighting ceremony on the town square this evening.



::giddy:: that it is the perfect weather for tall boots and leg warmers.

::lucky:: to have daughters that I miss when they are at school.

::wondering:: about the 1940's house down the way now owned by the bank.

::knowing:: it'd be nice to own and have available for my parents.

::wishing:: money grew on trees.  and that I was sure about the plumbing, electric, septic ...



::especially aware:: of how fortunate I am to have a husband that I love more today than when I married him over 15 years ago.

::glad:: to have found an outdoor table that will look grand with a new coat of paint.

::wrapping:: 150+ bars of soap for my craft fair this weekend.

You make me want to write a list.
Not just of all the things that I have to do.
My kitchen table is an old metal one painted white--it does make me happy!
Good luck at the craft fair!!!

Such a nice colorful stack of hst's! I was (this) close to buying a stack of rainbow colored basics for a hst quilt, but with Christmas so close and a list of quilts to finish, it will have to wait....

I can't wait to see what you decide to make with your HST's. And I'm also longing for a 1940's house... wish there was one just down the street from us!
