I have learned to love my weekends.
In fact, I look forward to the weekend all.week.long.
My weekends are now about wonderful outdoor adventures
or house chores and projects … the ones I want to do
rather than the kind that I need to do or have to do.
After becoming a single-mom who owned a home,
all the responsibility of every.thing fell upon my shoulders.
After my move in February of 2015,
it is such a relief to be in a much smaller home
with a landlord who keeps everything up and running.
This weekend embraced several projects.
I wanted SO BADLY to join in a MeetUp adventure
that involved kayaking on the Augusta Canal!
The weather was in the 70’s this weekend .. with cloudless skies. *swoons*
That would have been the perfect trip to close out the fall and start the winter.
But, my common-sense gene over ruled and I stayed home to finish projects.
One little project was finishing up the pillow that I mentioned last Monday.
I would have finished it quicker, but I ended up making two runs to two stores
to secure a good match on thread that needed to hide the closure stitching.
I love how raw strips of different patterns look when they are woven together.
I’m all about loose ends, frayed edges and lots of pattern.
It’s so intricate and interesting!
This pillow fits perfectly in the sitting area in my bedroom …
and it makes so very happy.
What about you, my friend?
What makes YOU happy this marvelous Monday morning?
