Monsuier Wookie and I fought over the sofa yesterday and decided that if he wouldn't touch me, I wouldn't touch him, therefore, we both got our way. While on the sofa, I drowned my flu with cup after cup of tea and Ricola cough drops while I reviewed the applications for the NEH Concord program I co-direct with Sterling Delano (he is so handsome!). We had another wonderful year of applications and, trust me, the process is tougher each year!
Then, I took a stroll through blogland and found some remarkable blogs and some very interesting ideas.
I love these:
Mia's blog is just plain eye candy for those of us who long for simpler days.
I always leave The Rhythm of Home inspired --- check out the lavendar drawer liners. I can see a bunch of these in my future!
Ravelry is a dangerous place for me to even log into. While in Florida, I discovered this lovely shawl. Some delicous Malibrigo came home with me to make this one.
And, of course, I visited all of you! What a fun way to spend my morning.
Last night, I carried the spinning wheel downstairs, gathered up my spinning chair, and filled 11/2 bobbins with some yummy hand dyed mohair (picture to come) and watched this:
Rebecca is one of my all time favorite books. I read it when I was 12 for the first time based on the recommendation of my Mother. Quickly, I devoured all the other Daphne DuMaurier books and still enjoy them from time to time. Come on, Manderly, Cornwall, Gothic landscapes?? Good stuff.
You know, come to think of it, maybe I like having the flu. It seems to me I had quite a good time.... cough cough.... Put the kettle on, won't you? I might just be here a while....
