The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, March 29th, 2009

Outside the window...It is dark. When I look out the window all I see is my reflection.

I am thinking...It is really late, I need to go to bed but I am not. It is quiet and my children are in bed and I want some down time.

I am thankful for...That it did not rain today and I was able to take the dogs outside to run.

From the kitchen..It is clean. I did not have to cook dinner tonight and am grateful for leftovers.

I am wearing...My favorite wool sweater, yard pants and slippers.

I am creating...My website. I am not an old dog but I am amazed at how "confused" I have gotten on a few applications.

I am going...A little crazy.

I am reading...The Shack. The jury is still out on it. I am thinking that I raised the bar too high on this book.

I am hoping..That I will get a clearer idea about the new job I have started.

I am hearing..My dog Martha snoring.

Around the house...I have a lot to do. Lots of UFO's and cleaning from a weekend of company.

One of my favorite things....To go to a yarn store and see and feel all the yarns. to be inspired by the colors.

A few plans for the rest of the week...I have 2 doctor appointments...YUCK!

My Little Loom

My neighbor has made me this wonderful little loom. It is so easy to use and portable. I have made several scarves on it using chenille for one and wool for the others. I lightly felted the wool ones and gave them away. I seem to give most everything I make away to friends. Right now I am working on a scarf for a friend on Facebook. The yarn is something that I picked up at Michael's, Alpaca and acrylic. I will not be able to felt it becuase of the acrylic content but I am hoping that they will full up nicely. It is amazing how fast it is. Warping is fast also. I like that. If something takes to long I tend to lose interest. I think that comes from having kids running around and having a limited amount of time to complete a project. Right now this project has been sitting unfinished for about a week, I started it at my son's soccer practice and I think I had better finish it. I think the reason it is not finished is becuase I have lost interest in the pattern and the look it is creating. I want to weave something else.
