outside . . . it’s partly cloudy with temps in the 80’s (what a wonderful change from all those 100’s over the past 10 days!)
kitchen . . . enjoying yummy oatmeal & peanut butter cookies (with Splenda Blend) – made by my oldest sister who is a diabetic (I got the recipes so I can bake some for Willie Jay).
creating . . . knitting a baby boy hat in fall colors of orange, brown and gold (pattern is The Umbilical Cord Hat from the ‘Stitch n Bitch’ book – quick & easy + so cute!)
remembering . . . my Aunt Lona who passed away this past week – lots of sweet memories of visits to her home as a child.
reading . . . ‘The Lace Reader’ by Brunonia Barry and the 2010 Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Book (both entertaining in their own way)
hoping . . . our little cool front stays with us for a few days, I’m so done with summer weather – ready for some cool crisp fall days.
hearing . . . the birds just outside my office window – nice background music for a workday
home . . . we are currently ‘de-cluttering’ our house, which is so hard for me — I’m the ‘hoarder’ in our relationship.
tonight . . . meeting up with my ‘Stitcher Gals’ – plenty of fiber fun, talk and laughter is always a great way to start the week.

A purple sparkly tiara for our little red-head – because you never know when the Queen might drop by for a tea party !
