Sleep and Sheep

The most exciting thing to happen today is I slept in until 9:30 this morning! It was heavenly. And the rest of the day was fairly normal. I think we've turned the corner.

The most energetic thing I did today was go get a big grocery order. I've been letting things slide this week and we were getting a little low on the basics. I only had one egg left, so it was a good thing we all slept through breakfast ;). And tonight I cooked an actual meal - first time all week. Grilled haddock fillets in panko crust and scalloped potatoes.

And I have hooked for a short time today. Once I pulled those first few loops I realized how much I have missed it. This is just a small mat but it was therapeutic

Just a simple sheep and some flowers. Maybe some Spring birds next.... You could definitely call me a "happy hooker" today.

  1. Cute sheep! I spent the day stitching!

  2. Well my friend, that was a great day for you. I'm so glad that you finally got to sleep in. Something that I want so much but never can do even when I'm dead tired.

    I hope that you got more than the basic though. Some little sinful tasty treat perhaps...

    I love your little spring sheep or maybe, lamb.
    I'll have to try getting back to my hooking when I get back. So far this winter, I just didn't feel like it. The Mojo is somewhere under the snow and ice. Ha ha ha.... Sigh...

    Take care of yourself too. I hope that yo have a good sleep again tonight.
