Early this morning, the sun was already shining, and there was a delicious perfume coming from the pines and the honeysuckle tree... I closed my eyes : I was sipping my coffee in paradise ! Then I had breakfast on the porch and thought :
- this is the present of my fifties : TIME to savour the simple things in life ! And I was grateful...
At 10 am, I had to go to the hospital for some X-rays (nothing too serious). A thought kept haunting my mind : "what if the postman knocks my door in my absence ?" (You all know how spoiled I am by my dear friend Darlene, who had told me a package was on its way). BINGO ! When I came back, there was a note in my mailbox : "package from the US - will be presented again this Friday ! "Ooooooooh Nooooooo ! ! !"......
Well I guess you can imagine me on Friday : buzzing all around the house like a big mosquito, tapping my feet on the floor until the postman's arrival ! (I'm going to put a note in big letters on my door, saying : " I'm Here ! " (LOL)
On a quilty note, I'm working on Laura's quilt "Africa" (tieing), and it's coming nicely.
I also cut all strips for the "365 days Journal Quilt" project, and they ALL come from my stash ! Yesss!
(If you're interested in this fun project, go to "Leanne's House" blog. A Yahoo Group was also initiated for that special project purpose, with our nice friend Linda ("All stitched up" blog) as the moderator (already 38 members..... with many blogging friends among them !)...
(Sorry : the photo is much too dark ! The fabrics are much lighter...)
- the simple pleasures of my "new life",
- retirement in good conditions,
- being fifty (ooops : 55 !),
- Jeanne ("Spiral"), who inspired me to list my gratitudes,
- an exciting Friday to come !
