Does this ever happen to you? You get up, blindly walk to the coffeemaker, get out the filter, measure the coffee, pour fresh water into said coffeemaker, walk blindly to chair, wait until coffee is done, walk blindly back to kitchen, pour coffee, drink coffee…and at some point when you are a bit more awake you realize that there are grounds in your cup? The darn filter has folded over on itself again! For some reason this causes the grounds to deposit themselves right back in the coffee. I find it usually happens when I am nearing the end of my stack of filters. Back to coffee maker, dump out coffee, clean out filter housing, insert new filter, scoop more coffee into filter, pour fresh water….ah! much better.
That’s how my morning started out, along with a slight sinus headache and not quite enough sleep. Nevertheless, I am determined to move on, so let’s look at some more eggs ~
I have been making more fabric eggs. I am a bit addicted. These are about ready to be sewn up. However, in the course of my packing for the trip out here, I neglected to bring a basic needle and thread. I have tapestry needles, needles to sew up seams in my knitting (let’s ignore the fact that I have done exactly none), quilting thread…no regular needle and thread. Note to self: get some today. I am taking these home on Saturday to spring up the old homestead.
In keeping with my determination to be positive, another bouquet has arrived courtesy of Trader Joe’s. I know that my daffodils are starting to emerge at the cottage, but I am not so sure I will see them bloom during my brief visit home. Yes, I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but in the meantime I am enjoying these.
