T Stand For Tuesday again already! This whole year seems to be sprinting past me.
Some of these cloudy mornings are so beautiful...
...but this morning is just one solid grey blanket.
So what have I been up to? I was working on letters all weekend...my trusty thermal mug of coffee by my side.
Still working on one of my bookcard letters today.
Only have three left, so it won't be too long and I will have to mass produce another batch.
I use several kinds of regular paper and stationery to write letters, too. You know how I love variety. ;)
My exciting-to-me order came from Cheap Joes! Here it is out of the shipping box.
He had five sheets of 300# watercolor paper on sale for $25.00!! Whoohoo!
I'm even thinking it might be just thick enough to make a thin cover for a small art journal--that could be painted before or after it was put together. But just to use these to paint on--ahhh! You know how I hate buckling paper--LOL!
We had some sun, too.
It's been cool during the day and chilly at night.
Karma was watching the Swooping Swallow Show on Cat TV. There's been a lot of excited bird activity with that breath of northern air returning.
Yesterday my new library volunteer, Amy, came by with six more books. But I hadn't finished three of the last stack of nine--LOL! So, I have a lot to read again.
Mama's Bank Account was what the movie I Remember Mama was based on. Another book I have never read--but LOVED that movie. I was surprised the book was so thin! Anyways, Amy is a really sweet girl and I look forward to seeing her again.
BTW--the last girl didn't quit, she got a different job at the library--promoted. I don't remember if I told you that.
Dagan and Leah are back from their vacation and are stopping by after work tonight around 7-ish. I made my first loaf from the Betty Crocker bread machine cookbook last week--just did the 1 1/2 lb. white bread--and it was delicious. In fact, almost gone and I'll be making bread again in a day or two. I like the fact that they have the option of a 1 1/2 or a 2 pound loaf with each recipe. Or at least of the first ones I looked at--lol! Honestly, I haven't sat down and gone through the whole book yet--just flipped to the first recipes. Anyways, this white bread was better than the one in the Oster pamphlet. ;) Thanks for the heads up, Jeannie!
I've been trying to keep abreast online, too. Then with laundry, cooking, my usual puttering about, tending to Miss Karma's needs and whims...the days have just been peacefully flowing by so quickly. I LOVE the change of seasons and fall is my very favorite, so that alone has me in excellent spirits. And I'll be happy to see Dagan and Leah tonight. Karma is purring in my lap under the laptop table as I am typing. Life is good! See you tomorrow. :)
