I Like Thursday # 98 ~ Sitting and Stitching


Life is telling me to take it slow and easy today.

I am sitting inside and stitching.

After the weekend long rains, I overdid it outside on Tuesday

while trying to catch up with my gardens.

I did get some of my window boxes and hanging baskets planted,

but then my knee said, "Slow down."

So I sat on my swing and was visited by this baby mockingbird on my garden gate.

The yellow diamond in the background is the "Go Slow" sign on the street light pole 

at the end of my driveway. 

Here is the view of my yellow roses in bloom,

taken from the top of the stairs this Thankful Thursday.

No more going up and down the stairs for a few days for me. 

I was not even able to stand at my cutting table yesterday.

So sitting and stitching and resting is my plan for today.

Favorite Freebie of the Week:

I am saving this on, too, for a future sewing day.

I am thankful for the occasional reminders to slow down and appreciate\ all the small joys in life.

Linking up today with my blogging friends, 

I Like Thursday Bloggers @ Not Afraid of Color

to share the small joys of life. 

Happy Thursday!
