Outside my window ..... the bottlebrush tree is in bloom with it's beautiful red flowers, the pink and purple lupins are also flowering, the sky is blue (but the sun isn't shining brightly at this time of night) and my water feature which sits on our deck is trickling away
I am thinking .... it's not a bad life!
I am thankful for ...... a great family BBQ we had at our place last night. The weather was dry and very warm, and cute little Phoebe came along and provided the entertainment :-)
I am wearing ..... dark blue jeans, a pink hooded sweatshirt, purple socks and my favourite moccasin slippers
I am loving .... my DH, who works hard at our family business and does so much around the house that I really feel quite spoilt (I haven't done housework or grocery shopping in about four weeks!)
I am stitching .... Christmas ornaments (and finishing them too for the exchanges I'm participating in and some for my tree. I am running a little later than anticipated but the overseas ones are going out in the mail this week!)
I am hoping .... that an appointment I have at the beginning of next month brings promising news
I am drooling over .... Siobhan's lovely blog post with loads of past stitchy finishes. Real eye candy!
I am sorely tempted by ...... Just Nan's Sheep ornament pocket. Too cute!
I am hearing ...... birds. We live on the outskirts of town and next to an area of bush which is teeming with birds (Tuis, ducks, wood pigeons, fantails, the occasional Rosella and all sorts of birds - they start early in the morning with a dawn chorus and the Moreporks (owl) take over with their call at night
I am reading ..... blogs, as always!
On my mind ..... Christmas. I'm looking forward to Christmas and a couple of weeks off work!
From my picture journal.... a pretty lupin growing in my garden
If anyone else does the daybook journal this time, let me know and I'll come and visit your blog.
