Simple pleasures...

is my motto these days. Taking time off from teaching this summer has afforded me the time to enjoy each day. Who would have thought that even the mundane tasks of laundry, cleaning and organizing...I question this...would be as pleasurable as family, friends, gardening and stitching? Did I say stitching? Well, my heart is there...just haven't found that perfect project!

I've had the good fortune to renew an old friendship and to quote her..."My daily goal is to make each day a pleasant memory". If you think about it, what a simple act to obtain much pleasure.

May your days be simple and pleasurable!

I've sometimes wondered if I needed my head examined because of finding pleasure in doing household chores! So it's good to know I'm not the only one ;-)
Love that heart, did you embroider that yourself? As my eyesight seems to be getting worse, embroidery is something tht appeals more and more to me.

No Andrea, you aren't the only one! LOL

My friend made the heart for me...I'm trying to track down the pattern, I believe it is an early Kindred Spirts.

From your stitching, I cannot tell your eyesight is at all bad! Happy Weekend!

The heart is so sweet, I have never done any of the stitcheries, but they are so pretty. Such a nice gift from your friend!!! Needlework gifts are the very best gifts you can ever get from a friend, very special.....
