Today: Wednesday is My Sunday.

 

Today is my Sunday! Tomorrow begins my nice, short little work week!  Today I got to spend the morning having breakfast with my wonderful boyfriend – being silly, and just enjoying each other’s company – it’s the best.  Great start to a beautiful, rainy, and downright chilly, fall “Sunday” for yours truly.

I also embarked up on a new adventure this afternoon: Becoming a Domestic goddess!!!!… Okay, maybe not a domestic goddess; but baby steps, right?!

Today  was the day I learned how to knit a scarf!  If you don’t know me – I’m not exactly the most “crafty” woman in my family. My sister and grandmother are brilliant at it all.   So, this is pretty awesome. And I’m excited!!!!  Now the question remains: Fringe, or no fringe…..? Hmmm… We shall see… (see left: the beginnings of my new project!)
