so here we go...



The start to a whole brand new week
yes I know it's Sunday
but I like to start over on Sunday's
because I don't like Sunday's
never have probably never will!!!
After I posted yesterday
i got up and literally
made my bed.
clean sheets
pillows plumped and fluffed to within an inch of their lives
then I made eggs and ham
for
brunch
and at some point pulled out a kitchen chair and found a box of bulbs
that I had bought a couple of weeks ago and forgotten about
how they got on the chair
...
we won't try to figure that out!!!

anyway
inside the box were three bulbs,
paperwhites,
growing in the dark

they want to live

so I potted them

(and there they are
in the sunshine this morning
growing)
how sweet and how full of life they are.


I sat down in the living room and took up the needles once again
and tried three patterns that caught my eye
(photos later)
then I tried another stitch I had seen somewhere and remembered how to do
and did that too!!
nothing like coming back with a roar
so four different patterns on the needles
a stupid
"destroy the planet" crap movie on TV
and
she's back
:) :) :)


today for lunch I made some ham and cheese and tomatoes
 on bread filled with seeds and nuts
 and
oats
yum!
visited a few blogs and Flickr
things are vewy vewy quiet
around those parts

started dinner
and made a cup of tea
which was left again because when I went outside to get a breath of air
and

this is what was over me

hawks
circling over head


drifting in circles
round and round
and
round
from the front to the back

silent hunters
in the sky
hope their prey
looks not like
.......
I

see ya!!!!

What sort of bulbs are they? Very resilient things are bulbs. If they want to grow they will grow. My tomatos have suddenly sprung to life on my kitchen windowsill today - it's almost as if they appeared from nowhere! Plants are very amazing and surprising little things.

I want your lunch. nom!

Were they maybe turkey vultures visiting you? We get them here, circling, circling...it gives you a bit of a complex thinking maybe they know something you don't know. Or maybe I watched too many cartoons as a kid.

I want your lunch too!
Oh M, you do make me laugh. Overall it sounds like a wonderful day to me. Yes Blogland is a bit quiet. I hope you are enjoying your 4 projects. Thank you for visiting me as always. I thought of you today as I looked at my beautiful pillow! XOXO

4 projects!! I know the temptation...but then I go to pieces afterwards because I can't finish all of them at once and keep them straight in my mind!

Your lunch looks yummy...think I might have to dig the tomatoes out of the crisper :)

I don't like Sundays either. They are all so grey and boring. Don't really know why, though... Maybe I should do like you, make them be the fresh start of everything instead. See if I can remember that next Sunday!
