loveliness 7

This is some random plant that I dragged inside when it started getting cold. I figured it was one of those things that would die almost immediately. But look! Not only does it live on, but it has produced a flower with which to make fun of the very cold (but actually still tasty) thyme plant outside.

loveliness 6

Today's loveliness was a walk home. Here are some images from along the way:

I really like the font, the reflection and the Christmas wreath inside.

Yes please. How are you at math problems?

I have always liked this place, it is kind of drawing-y.

Found Photos

Why are all found photos this way? They always seem to look exactly like this one, which I picked up yesterday. 

Loveliness 5

Do you know what this is? This is sunshine, in the basement.  I think this is a pretty special place to find sunshine, I was certainly happy to discover it here.... 

This is my new sewing set-up, which I'm pretty pleased about. Here is a stack of newly organized fabric.

Loveliness 4

Bagged up stuff. Don't know why, but I like it.

More good things to do every day

When you get to thinking about it, there are lots of things that would be good to do every day. I'd love to stretch every day, but that has been a new years resolution for at least five years running. 

I think it would be really great to do a drawing each day. But that is too ambitious a project for me right now. In that spirit though, here is a doodle of P knitting. He kindly saved the awesome security envelope for me, knowing about my longstanding fascination with them. This one had a nice wiggly cross hatch pattern....

Night Face

This is the coolest shadow ever... I'll try to get a better picture.

Loveliness 3

Here is a loveliness: seeing a friend that you haven't seen in ten years, and she's pregnant.  Also, it looks like I missed a day in my loveliness posts, but today is still Saturday, or at least I'm still awake.

Loveliness 2

This is me stealthing up on the turkey sandwiches in the oven.... turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce on P's homemade bread. Can't complain about that. 

Actually there is nothing to complain about today... the only challenge presented by Loveliness #2 was the sheer abundance of nice stuff around. Like these:

Saved since the eighties by my mom... too awesome to throw out, I agree. 

And these amazing gloves I found in my sewing stuff:
 Added to the collection:

Loveliness 1

Grow it, don't throw it, ses Patrick. Really this is his loveliness.

I hate Christmas, but I like wreaths....
