Today 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.
I 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…)
I 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.
I 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.
I am reading… This is your brain on music, by Daniel Levitin. It’s a fascinating read.
I 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.
I 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.
One of my favorite things… tea with a friend in a cafe.
A 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.
For learning ALISON or EDx are both free online f’shizzle learning that might be of interest. 🙂
