It's the simple things...

... like the time to nap when your nose would normally be to the grindstone. It's finding a small treasure buried deep in a pile on the bottom shelf at Goodwill. It's a quiet afternoon with your windows open.

It is the simple things that help you to reset.

After oversleeping my alarm and dozing off while brushing my hair this morning, I decided a sick day was in order. I've spent the last week sniffling my nose, popping my ears, taking Advil for my achy bones, and otherwise not feeling spectacular. I haven't felt "sick" but apparently my body has been working overtime to keep me going. I ended up sleeping 6 more hours throughout the day. I feel like I could go to bed now and still sleep until morning. Sometimes you just need a day away.

After a hearty dinner of BBQ ribs ('cause this Texan doesn't stray too far from the mother ship) I sped off to the nearest Goodwill and then to the 2nd nearest Goodwill. I think the trips were well worth the time and mileage. I found a set of interchangeable knitting needles at one for $5 (this set to be exact). It is missing two of the smaller sizes, but I can replace those. I couldn't let my good thrifting luck go to waste, so off to the 2nd one I went. There I found a sweet pillow case, a handful of vintage mugs for Junque Rethunque and a handful of embroidery hoops. I'm smittin' pretty hard on the large, oval one - aren't you? I have some fabric I want to frame in theLink hoops and hang. That might be a good project for this weekend.

What about you? Any weekend projects already in the works? Who cares if it's only Monday... you have to have something to look forward to.

There is going to be some chicken coopin' going down at my house this weekend! And I might even go a little crazy and sew something.

Yay for getting lots of sleep and goodwill shopping! Sounds like the perfect sick day to me! :)
