There isn't a part of me that isn't sore today, but I am still a bit aglow over my frenzy yesterday. The joint is clean, I'm back on track, and now I can rest a bit before the next adventure begins.

My little pile of newspapers and mail is growing, so I think I better settle in with it before doing anything else:

I haven't looked at the paper since Friday (yikes), so I better get crackin'!

D-chair time went relatively well today and I did finish the next little area of Plum Pudding:
I finally feel like I have hit the sweet spot when it comes to a full kit. If I have a chart, fabric, threads, q-snaps, scissors, needles, needleminder, Bitsy Bob, retractable highlighter, project bag with matching grime guard, and a floss container I feel like I could conquer the world.

Gee, it only took sixteen years to figure that out!

As soon as I finish this post-d cup of damn good I'm going to jump back into the fray. For now, though, I think I'll savor the quiet and go Instagramming.

Happy Monday, Dearies! Do something savory and come tell me all about it!


  1. So glad you are doing well and back on track. I know I am better when I go into the kitchen and bake. Today it was a pan of gingerbread. Recipe from a book by the late and much lamented Laurie Colwin. I don't bake when the 'yellow dog' has come for a visit.
    Love this project, Coni.

  2. Well done Coni. I need to do the same clean up, but instead am off with borrowed grandchildren to see'Horrible Histories'. Any excuse....

  3. Super news. Today husband is making plum jam! He did mention it yesterday after he'd scoffed one off the tree - I'll remind him later - because you have reminded me this morning with your pudding!

  4. Plum Pudding is looking good, Coni!

  5. Pile of mail? Coni that my dear is barely a dent! Must admit I got mine under control on Sunday, it was a YEARS worth of mail!!!
