Monday, Monday!

I hesitate to mention this, as I fear you are tired of hearing the 'r' word.

But.  Today, I actually feel like I am retired!  Odd.  Well, perhaps not so odd.  I had oral surgery on Friday, and with that looming over my head since my last day of work, I guess I still kinda felt like I couldn't completely relax and get into the entire retirement thing.  Ya know?  But, anyway.  Today is a good day.  I feel fine, it's cool-ish outside and I am getting something done!

I mentioned before that I felt it was important to have some kind of a routine...a schedule of sorts.  Else, I fear my days would just float by and end up in a jumble somewhere.  I don't want that.  I want my days to count for something.  Perhaps not every day...but certainly, most of them.  

I started that routine this a.m.  Thus far, it feels good.  A good fit.  Like I'll be able to stick with it.  I've had time to sit and do nothing and I've had time to get some good sewing in.

I trimmed a bazillion hst's.
Okay, maybe only 150...but it sure felt like a bazillion!  These are the corners that I cut off when making the blocks that I've been working on for the past week or so.  I am going to make a doll quilt with them.  

Speaking of the blocks that I've been making...I finished the last 2 today.  

Now to decide on sashing and borders.

I finished another face cloth, so now I have two clementine colored ones for myself...
and, enough yarn to make another small one.  I really like this color!

For you cat lovers, here is a new photo of Kisa. 

And, for the brown dog followers, I have nothing.  Sorry.
Must get back to sewing.  Hope you are having a good Monday!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

HST's and blocks are looking just dandy! I've been making a list every night for the next day. Can't say I stick to it totally... but, at least it gives me a direction when I get out of bed in the morning... lol! Kisa is a cutie!

Well, for me when I worked, that is when I organized my life. Now that being retired all these wonderful years is still a joy, I enjoy seeing the sunrise, and sometimes going to bed just after sunset....Bliss!
