|pattern from Fusion Beads|
*I Like being so enthusiastic about a project that I take one more look at the design wall before going to bed, I want to do one more block, or with beading /knitting, one more row.
"Just one more row, then I'll stop and walk/do the dishes/make the bed" or whatever.
My pal Cindy and I got together again to do beading... our new group is called "Just Bead It" and we're the co-leaders... and the only members, lol. I started this adorable bracelet with a new to me technique, 3 drop peyote.
Luckily I learned 2 drop peyote making Nancy's leopard bracelet, so this was one baby step new.
I went for a lovely walk under the pear-blossoms and blue sky and 60 degree temp. After that, I thought it's such a rare day, the kind I LIKE, so I should sit on the back porch again. I know..." I'll read a magazine then recycle it". I couldn't pay attention, so I thought, heyyyyyyy all this daylight should help me read my beading chart, I'll just "do one or two rows"
Bwaaaahahahaha. One, then another, then another til I ended up beading for an hour!
*I Like freshly washed sheets. It's an event changing the sheets on our king-sized bed. I remember taking home-ec in Junior High, and learning how to fold hospital corners as there were no fitted sheets. All were flat, and had to be ironed. I remember the feel of crisp fresh sheets.
Although we use unscented detergent now, and no fabric softener we use the dryer which leaves them soft. I love the first night in new sheets. No ironing for me.
We are still using flannel but the time is coming when we must change to regular ones.
*I Love pretty sheets. Floral, stripes, colorful, clean white with a touch of lace, anything pretty. It makes me happy to see them each time.
|I found these vintage sheets EXACTLY LIKE MINE!!!|
When I went away to university I had bright yellow sheets with tiny flowers. The image above from pinterest says its vintage from JCP. Yep. Vintage... well I went to university in the 70's.
My granny's yellow scrap quilt went to school with me. I loved that room so much. I still have the twin sheets but some thief in my family absconded with the quilt and won't tell me! Grrrrrrrrrr.
* I Like folding clean laundry and putting away clean dishes.
It also displays lies.
It says, time left: 10 minutes. HA! 10 "washer-minutes" maybe. That last 45 min.
It's kind of satisfying isn't it? Turning the higgeldy piggeldy laundry basket into stacks of towels all tidy, bundles of matched socks, etc.
(you all think I'm crazy don't you lol!)
*I Like Temple Oranges.
They are in season right now, and it's a very short season. We got a box from the Lion's club. They are sweet and tart and juicy and full of seeds.
My very favorite Florida Orange.
*I Like COLOR!
*I Like bossa nova music... and Astrud Gilberto's version of it might as well be Spring... enjoy!
As always, please let me know if you did an I Like post too. I'll include it here so we can create a circle of contentment and notice the little things around us that make us happy.
