for today…

IMG_1823Today I’m joining in with the Simple Women’s Daybook. If you’d like to join in too, pop over here and read all about it.

All the photos in this post have been taken in the last week. Yes, there has been a lot of tea.

Outside my window… it’s dark. The rain has stopped, but the leaves still glisten.

IMG_1795I am thinking… how much I love September. Forever associated with school, new projects, clean stationery, and such a sense of possibility.
In the kitchen… a candle burns in the window. A bag of flour from today’s trip to Tuxford Windmill waits to be turned into something fabulous (it might be waiting a while…)

IMG_1821I am wearing… damson coloured nail varnish, and cosy, sheepskin lined suede boots with a zip up the front. Yes, like those ones your granny wears. They cost me £3 and they look cool with skinny jeans. Cool, I tell you.

IMG_1817I am creating… blankets and bunting. All months late for their respective celebrations, as usual.

I am going… nowhere at all until tomorrow evening. I will stay near the house and sew, clean, potter and bake. I’ve travelled so much these last weeks.

IMG_1833I am reading… This is your brain on music, by Daniel Levitin. It’s a fascinating read.

IMG_1824I am hoping… it stops raining for long enough to get another coat of paint on the windows. I do so want them to be finished.

I am looking forward to…  a weekend without too many plans.

IMG_1837I am learning… well, I am longing to learn something, but I’ve not settled on what that something is yet. I have such an urge to learn at this time of year.

Around the house… fabric and paint pots lie waiting for time to finish projects.

IMG_1852One of my favorite things… tea with a friend in a cafe.

IMG_1860A few plans for the rest of the week: painting, planting, sewing. A trip to the community garden, and perhaps to Portland Works, a community owned cutlery works. Bizarrely, I’m a shareholder (goodness, that makes it sound very grand!) yet I’ve never visited.
