Monday Morning Love List, #6
Tags: Vancouver, Girlie stuff, monday morning love list
Love – the fact that it rained on Friday, it was lovely on the weekend, and that it’s threatening to rain today. Despite the complaining, most people here know that we need the rain in order to stay verdant & lush. Hey! You in the corner! I said STAY lush, not BE a lush.
Love – these measuring spoons. I grew up in a household where all recipes were personalized countless times, and there was always talk of a dash of this or a sprinkle of that. I need these spoons.
Love (!!) – That I can finally let the truth be known. This quiz confirms what I already knew in my heart…
Love – That there are only 4 more days until the Autumn Equinox. I spent part of yesterday practicing the ages-old tradition of darning – we like to change the colours in our home come autumn, and fixing any little tears and nicks in towels/sheets/blankets/ clothes now will save us a huge hassle later.
Love – The possibilities a fresh week provides. On the agenda; more training, some dancing, lots of reading, some serious sorting of photos, more reading, at least one walk along the seawall, some sketching, and a heck of a lot of enjoying life as it comes…
Love – That while I was looking for a guide to Victorian darning techniques (my skills are basic, and I’d like to learn some of the more decorative ones) I came across Those Darn Squirrels. I love squirrels. It’s a hazard of having spent so much time living in the West End and traipsing through Stanley Park. The photographer (Mitch Rossow) even gives this bit of sage advice. “Having a squirrel picture in your space symbolizes the importance of gathering and giving. They can also remind you that in your quest for goals, you need to make time to socialize and play.” I think I’ll put one up at work…
Love – All the amazing people who’ve visited and left comments this past week.
So… what’s on your list today?
