week 12

Outside my window... blue skies and thin white clouds. The sun is letting itself be seen. Sunray's coming through the window and making beautiful patterns on my desk. Fresh breeze coming through my open window. Birds letting themselves be heard. Could it be because our next-door neighbour has build an aviary??

I am thinking...what I would like to accomplish today and trying to find the motivation to get dressed and start cutting some triangles, squares and rectangles for my Medallion Sampler. But I'm letting me first write this blog icon_biggrin

I am thankful for... daylight saving (DST). We are slowly approaching summer! I'm enjoying spring. It is already giving me lots of positive energy. Might even sit in the backyard a little later on the day and catch some sunray's. 

I'm also thankful for ... the unexpected compliment I received last Wednesday. A client was very positive of my skills, effort and perseverance. After evaluating the project I had managed for them, I received a very complimenting closing speech and a book for future reference.

boek The book is about how managing can be the source of the problem but also the solution. I've been walking with my head in the clouds ever since and feeling a little good about myself. But you had to see me blushing. I'm good in giving complements but not so good in receiving them blushing_smiley .

I am wearing... my PJ's. This is not a bad thing, is it?

I am going... to work on my Medallion Sampler. Really!!!

From the livingroom I'm hearing... noises from Formula 1. Hubby is watching it now. I didn't realize till now that it is in Melbourne! Yes, it is Sunday the 28th today.

I am creating... nice patterns on Zoë's quilt. Slowly I'm getting myself back into 'flow'. Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. But back to the subject; Zoë's quilt.

IMG_4762 Aren't I looking serious (or is this concentration)? Making progress!


I am hoping... for good news coming Tuesday. Hoping I will still have a job (and a good salary).

Looking forward to.... coming Saturday. I'm meeting up with Ruth from Ruth's place. The Australian quilter & knitter living in South Africa.

I am wondering...  what the future will bring.

Pondering these words... 'All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you' - Walt Disney. The last couple of weeks have been difficult (and this is understating the fact). The unexpected has happened and it threw me out of balance in a big way. These words keep me going ...'We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope' - Martin Luther King

Around the house... things are cleared away. Did some spring cleaning!! There are no obstacles not to start cutting a little later.

Happy about... that spring is really here and that I might be getting a present. Will let you know next week what it was! Have been wanting this for a long...... time.

One of my favorite things... is having a BBQ. Yesterday evening we had our first BBQ for the season. It was nice to have a good old friend over to enjoy this with us.
