Friday Felicities

I didn't plan to, but I ended up taking a Spring Break hiatus from Friday Felicities! I was really busy with my staycation those two weeks. While G was in day camp, Kevin and I got a whole bunch of great stuff accomplished:
  • we rearranged the furniture in our main living space, and now it feels so open and pleasant that I no longer want to stroke out with frustration when I'm in it;
  • we culled our "stuff" and listed a whole bunch of it on Craig's List (are you local and in need of a really nice china cabinet, coffee table, mirrors or silverplated salt and pepper set with bonus salt cellar? email me!);
  • we donated G's outgrown clothes and toys to the appropriate places;
  • we organized G's room so that there is a place for everything (it's made a world of difference - she tidies up now!);
  • we browsed at Home Depot in peace;
  • we were able to have uninterrupted adult conversation lasting longer than 30 seconds - sometimes even over lunch with an Adult Beverage!
...all while little Miss G had her fill of activity and friend time. I suppose that is my Spring Break felicity. My felicity today is that I will have an opportunity to share my passion for quilting and sewing with some newbies. It's a secret project whose recipient sometimes reads here so I won't go into too many details. But we'll be using these fabrics

to make a version of Easy Going Modern (I *swear* a pattern is on its way). Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Wow! That sounds fabulous! I salute you! Now will you come do my place? ;)

  2. Sounds wonderful! Being able to have an adult conversation without one of us falling asleep would be such a luxury! :)

  3. Sounds so lovely and ordinary yet extraordinarily difficult to achieve!

  4. Wow, busy week! Happy sewing with the pretty fabric!!!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
