A Day to Myself

Today I led my monthly mom's group "creative" activity. Last Thursday we hosted a party for some girls at a local alternative school. A good friend of mine had the brilliant idea to make these wonderful Valentine frames. They turned out awesome, so everyone requested that we do them too. I found the frames, ribbon and used the left-over paint. This is the result....well, my result anyway....I think it turned out pretty cute. I just need a picture of my little Valentine's to put in it.

Thursday's are the only day of the week that both little guys are at "school". Therefore, I have the day to myself....I love it. Especially, when I can keep my commitment to myself to have the day to myself. Today was a good day. I went to mom's group, had lunch with the hubby, and came home to read for our upcoming book club....about an hour before I picked up the kiddo's I decided to treat myself to a nap. AWESOME.

To make the day perfect, I came home to find a package from Knit Pick's on my porch. New knitting books. I received The Knitter's Book of Yarn, Ethnic Knitting and 100 Purses to Knit and Crochet. I have already flipped through them, but I am excited to get the chance to read them more in depth. They are all great. I have had a stirring inside to learn, or re-learn....I crochet, and this book of purses is just added motivation.
