Simple Woman's Daybook: 20th January 2010

Outside My Window .. Cold, grey today. Fascinating scenes as the bird feeder has been moved a few feet to the left in the garden, it didn't take long for the birds, and especially the horrid pigeons, to discover where their food was.

I am thinking ... that I need to contact friends and start socialising, then the weather turns cold again.

From the learning rooms ... Ian has the name of his new tutor, but no details of tutorial dates. 

I am thankful ...  I went to knitting group today at Mrs Moon, largest group I've ever seen. Started the beanie on plastic needles, size 10 and realised that I prefer wooden needles. Bought myself a pair, felt justified as Martha asked me if I had spare size 10s so she can have the plastic ones. Managed to knit 18 rows of hat, since being at home have done two more so ready to start decreasing.

From the kitchen ... jars of marmalade made, Ian thinks it is over 50.

Store cupboard.

Last batch, made this afternoon.

I am wearing ... navy cord skirt, Boden blouse, tank top and matching cardigan, Laura Ashley scarf.
I am creating ... A mustard coloured wool beanie in Rowan big wool to wear to the ML meet next month; still working on cushion cover have knitted 51 out of 77cms.

I am reading ...  We need to talk about Kevin. Reading group choice, not read enough yet to form an opinion.

I am hoping ...  to attend some of the CTIW Week of prayer for Christian Unity next week. Some of the services start at 9.15 am. That will mean arising rather early, especially when I tell you we slept till 8.45 yesterday morning.

I am hearing ...  very little, apart from hum of laptop. 

Around the house ... we are managing to keep the house tidy so no frantic runarounds before our Treasure arrives.

One of my favourite things ... beautiful sunsets.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... well, as it is Thursday not much of week left but have nothing planned. Sunday is church, then Monday is back to Pulmonary rehab., Tuesday to Local studies and digitalization, Wednesday Pulmonary rehab. again. 

A picture thought I am sharing ... 

This is the beautiful wall hanging made by my penfriend's mother. It is rug hooking and the shading and detail is incredible, makes one want to eat these vegetables. So delighted with the gift and the kindness behind it.

Couldn't resist adding another view of the rug hooking, at an angle as it is propped up on shelf at present.

I must mention the  blog of The Simple Woman's daybook  and offer a link back to the main page of her at  blog. 

Off to have supper now. Byeeeee

  1. Seville oranges are finally in the shop here, so the Sage is bringing some home for me. I'll have to get going with the marmalade today, as I'll be too busy next week.
