“Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week.” – Joseph Addison


I am thankful for today. Today was my mental detox day. I had the whole day to myself. I was able to accomplish some things and ignore others. Friday and Saturday seemed to drag painfully on and on at work, so Sunday was a welcome break.


This would be the back of my house. Notice the freshly mowed lawn. That would be one of those things I accomplished. That and clearing off the back patio so it didn’t look so much like a hurricane had blown through.

The day was so lovely, I thought it best to put up the hammock and spend part of the afternoon reading.

Another good thing to do on lazy sunday afternoons besides drink iced tea….

I just can’t get enough of these little dishcloths. Love them I do. Thank you, Cindy, for sharing the pattern! I am currently making them in yellow for my kitchen stash.

These were made for a friend and need to mailed off this coming week. Here’s hoping she likes them as much as I do.

And finally, one of my favorite times of the year is here. My lilac tree is in bloom!! Yay!
