A Great Day!!

I had a great day today! It was a scorcher today, so I got up nice and early while the boys were still in bed and went for a run. It was a lovely mild morning and I ran like the wind (well, maybe like a slight breeze!). I found a lovely birds nest on my run, and it even had a bit of pink thread woven in it. A bird after my own heart!! Then I organised the boys, drove them to their respective school bus stops, and then had the WHOLE day to myself. After having the boys home for 6 weeks, this was bliss. I did only the housework that needed to be done, read for a while, painted some fusible webbing, and also some muslin. I also received a beautiful postcard from Gunnel. It has beautiful colours and texture and I love it. Thanks Gunnel!! All in all, I had a great day!!
