In this latter part of the week I have been :-

  • Rising earlier. The first few minutes are the most difficult. Nothing like seeing the sun rise.
  • Smiling at Violet and her "playmate", Julia's doll.
  • Thinking that artichokes substitute for flowers quite nicely.
  • Eating delicious eggs from our local health food store. Feeling guilty that we still don't have a chicken coup.
  • Knitting another dishcloth. A heart lollipop one.
  • Finding stamps of an avid collector in rather odd places.

I do hope your week has been a pleasant one. If you haven't already please check out the giveaway.
