Friday mornings are my favorite time of the week. And there is one real reason for that, it is quiet. I am alone and it is quiet (oops that is two reasons). Monday and Wednesday's mornings I am alone too, but there are errands to run, a shower to take, work to get ready for, it is all so rushed. By the time I pick up Little Buddy from school I am in a mad dash to get home and leave for work. Friday's there is no driving to work, and if I can help it minimal errands to run. It is me, alone in my house savoring the almost three hours of glorious quiet.
On my way home from dropping off Little Buddy at school I made my quick grocery run and bought these beauties for my kitchen table. I have decided that I really need flowers for my table, it is a treat that is very cost affective and lightens my mood. I used to think buying flowers was frivolous but not anymore, they are a necessity.
With the extra yarn from my crochet basket I made two more dishcloths. I am up to a whopping 12 now but I have lost my mojo this week. I have been tired because of my new schedule and all the driving I do. I have gotten Little Buddy fed, bathed and to bed and then I go to my bed and read. That doesn't last all that long before I am drifting off to sleep, I will get used to this new schedule but it might take a bit of time. By the way I am reading Lunch with Buddha by Roland Merullo. It is a sequel to Breakfast with Buddha, a book that I really enjoyed. I am really enjoying this book also, I just need to stay awake long enough to read it.
This is my goal this weekend, to get a lot done on this table runner for my SIL. It has been sitting by idly waiting to be noticed. I am about half way done so I need to get moving and finish it before even more time goes by.
Little Buddy's bedroom looks so nice in the morning light. The rocking chair was my Grandmother's, it used to be covered in a horrible fabric. I had it recovered years ago, I think these jewel tones look a bit 90's. It is a smallish chair, made for a woman I think. It creaks appropriately when rocking just like a good rocking chair should. Little Buddy and I read books before bedtime and naps and then sing a few songs before I put him down in his crib. Last week he was so tired he said,"I want a bushel and a peck, Mommy" So cute!
Little Buddy is now being quite the character at school. Seems everyday when I pick him up I hear something about circle time, listening and such from the teacher. I have to laugh because if it was my first born I would be so upset, but now I laugh and think, he is three! But we do go over the rules which have now been expanded to:
1. No hitting your friends or teachers with your walker.
2. No touching friends with your hands at circle time.
3. We must have a quiet mouth and listen when the teacher is talking during circle time.
4. We must sit in our own special seat at circle and not someone elses.
Seems like circle time might be an issue! Maybe I should have a chat with the teacher about making circle time more interesting or at least shorter! Okay I will be a good girl and keep my mouth quiet.......for now at least. I think I might have to review rule number 3 for myself.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am grabbing another cup of tea, my loom and getting busy with the few precious moments I have left of my Friday morning alone. Enjoy your day.
