Gosh. I swear, I am NEVER happier than I am on a Sunday in the midst of a long weekend. It feels so good to have that extra day. Surely there is a way to do this every week…!
So far, I’ve been making delicious things and sewing cute things and reading good things and watching good things…
Making : Mee Goreng as part of Rin’s birthday dinner last night. Happy Birthday Rin! (Rin is my eldest child/adult/person!)
Sewing: two bunnies for our Mirabel Foundation BunAnza! One is adapted from Claire ‘Loobylu‘ Robertson’s pattern (from my first book) and the other is made up this afternoon. The yellow florally one has a yellow pompom for a tail. She’s sort of a cute zombie rabbit, really, with a floral touch. Apart from rabbits, I’ve also started making a quilt. I don’t know. I just can’t stop sewing, all of a sudden! I made a cute floral bag for the BLACK-et I crocheted Rin (which I actually finished in time for her birthday!) It’s called a BLACK-et because it’s very black. Not my usual colourful style, but Rin really loved it and I love Rin, so it all makes complete sense!
Reading: I actually got up early enough to get the newspapers before they were stolen. So I read those. One thing I noticed – columnists are writing list posts, like bloggers do. Do you know what I mean? A list of things with an intro and an outro. Seems legit enough, I guess…
Watching: I am obsessed with Brothers & Sisters. Tomorrow I am going to launch ‘The Festival Of Sally Field’ at my house. I am going to watch Sally Field movies and keep making things and drinking too much tea. I’m totally looking forward to it. I’m going to get up early, to get a head start on Sally.
Also: Did you see that Bill Murray movie St Vincent? It was really good, I thought, up until the cheesy ‘Love Actually-ish’ end. Why did they end it like that? I wish I knew the original ending, because I DO NOT THINK it was the one they went with.
Okay. Well that’s it for now. Just wanted to check in and say hello and talk about stuff, you know?!
PS: I could share my noodle recipe and my zombie bunny how-to, if anyone wants them. x
