:: Today I am...having a love-hate thing with the wintery weather ::
Loving the view from my cosy Attic window, with the hills looking impossibly beautiful dusted in a light sprinkling of snow. And hating the thought of snow arriving down here in the town as I am no longer able to fasten up any coats I possess or wear any footwear other than crocs. Neither of which is suited to doing the school run in snow.
:: Today I am...enjoying the sight of our early morning pre-breakfast crafting ::
We rise early here at number 24, at around 6:15am or thereabouts, so even on school days there is always time for some pre-breakfast activity of one sort or another. During this week I've been joining the Little People most mornings in making some more decs for our tree, and it's been a whole lot of fun.
We're using pre-cut felt shapes, glitter glues, shiny stars and christmas stickers, all of which are making me feel quite Excitably Festive. Not decided yet whether to string these little decorated shapes into a garland or hang them individually, but either way, I think they're going to look pretty good.
:: Today I am...enjoying a little bit of happy hooky time ::
Been at the cafe this morning, nattering, cappuccino drinking and hooking. I worked some more colourful cottony stripes to my current WiP, which is a new bag.
I have to say I've not been crocheting very much at home just lately as I usually hook in the evenings or at weekends, both of which seem to have been swamped by either tiredness or other activities of late. But this afternoon, just after lunch I sat with a cup of tea and a little Sweet Something on the side (recipe for that coming tomorrow) and enjoyed some Afternoon Hooky. Very pleasurable it was too.
In fact....am about to go and squeeze in a few more stripes before it's time to plod along the canal to school.
Hoping you're having a Happy Today, whatever the weather and whatever you are up to, and I shall see you tomorrow for some Festive Baking.....it's gonna be rather Mmmmmmm at Attic24 tomorrow!
