This is how our days off look like. Just chilling in bed, eating ice cream or drinking beer and just slack around. These are some of my favorite moments in life.
This might sound lazy, but its not. We’re both dead tired most of the time and we’re always running around and doing things, that I really cannot remember the last time we actually had a day all to ourselves without having to share time with anyone else.
Lazy days are the best!
First was Suzy, now it’s Marlanu’.
But he isn’t interested in the real flowers. Nope. he was busy sleeping while I stitched on my tulips needlepoint.
If I keep on it, in a few days I will finish the tulips needlepoint.
I am really unsure of how much I like this project. There are moments where the flowers seem too square and then there are moments when the result seems gratifying. I guess, its a love hate relationship and the only way I’ll know if I love this project is by framing it.
Here is a detail of the stitching.
Framing my stitching projects isn’t on any list at the moment so I’m guessing after I finish the tulips they will go to the folder with all the other finished projects.
Still, after I finish the tulips I would love to finish the cat needlepoint. It’s been more than two years since I started that project and it needs just a few more stitches and it will be done. And I will be at peace with myself for finishing something that I started.
I don’t know why, but lately finishing, completing, finalizing, anything that means an end result brings me a lot of joy and satisfaction.
It’s actually nice and sunny. It’s warm!
Spring? Is that you?
Oh, last day of work than a 4 day weekend. I can’t wait to just slack around and do whatever I want. I think a walk in the park would do me me good.
Even Marlanu’ likes this weather.
I tried a little Spring cleaning in my closet and when I was trying to put the clothes back he wouldn’t let me. So, for an hour or so I let him have his fun. And I had my fun as well. I like taking photos, so what better subject than a fat cat.
Routine can make one feel tired. The days pass so quickly and so uninteresting that it makes me feel like I’m wasting time rather than being productive.
But its a miracle what a little change in the daily routine can do to one spirits.
Just by leaving one hour earlier and going to the park before work, by visiting a friend during my day off, even reading a book or two. I really do feel much more refreshed and I’m in a better mood than before.
I must admit the weather was really nice and it was a shame not to go out for a walk. Even if I was by myself. I guess being alone doesn’t bother me at all, especially on a lovely early Spring morning.
Yes I do consider that Spring is here. I can actually smell it!
What can I say, when Spring will come in full force all the parks will be full with people so I should enjoy them and their solitude as much as I can.
After that I know for sure that everybody will come out and the parks will be much to full for my liking.
And yet, even staying indoors has it perks when you have a cat.
