I'm sat listening to football commentary on the radio - a Saturday afternoon without football doesn't feel right to me. Anyway a while ago I came across this picture on a blog I follow -
So I followed the link to http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/ and came across a wonderful idea of recording notes, ideas and observations prompted by.......well prompts!
I've been meaning to join in but never had the time until today so I made sure I sat down and wrote -
So FOR TODAY April 7th 2012 here are my entries to the Day book -
Outside my window... of my craft room is the main road, but it's quiet. I'm in a rural town so our main roads aren't that busy. Beyond the houses on the other side of the road, I can see the trees and fields that stretch out towards the Mendip Hills. It's grey and raining.
I am thinking...of the Easter eggs I have to give tomorrow and wondering if I can get away with opening my chocolate today!
I am thankful...for all of the family and friends that I have who spend so much time helping me each and every day so that I can live in a lovely home and get through each day.
In the kitchen...are my Easter eggs! I do love chocolate.
I am wearing...a typical Zoe outfit of boots and jeans, with a vest top and cardi.
I am creating...an Altered book at the moment, something I never thought I'd be able to do, typing this I'm waiting for the pages to dry that I have glued together.
I am going...to enjoy my peaceful afternoon, my boy is at my parents, so I'm listening to the football commentaries and generally just resting as I have been busy of late.
I am wondering.....if the right football teams will win and the results go as I hope!
I am reading...well I'm about to start reading 'Killing Me Softly' by Nicci French. My good friend Debs has lent it to me so I will start it later.
I am hoping...I haven't forgot to buy Easters eggs for those I should have bought for!
I am looking forward to...seeing my nieces on Monday and also hopefully seeing my life long friend and her children as well.
I am learning each day to accept me for who I am - and that while my conditions do have a huge impact on my life, it's down to me to make the most of each day and not waste a single second dwelling negatively on it all.
Around the house...I have huge ideas about how I want my rooms to look! Little by little it will be done, all with my supervision of course! I have an idea to create a room that's teenage friendly but also somewhere I can enjoy too, I think the union jack themes are fab and funky so I'm collecting red (though not too much red!), white and blue bits and bobs. My altered book is in those colours so it will be a decorative piece for that room. I may create canvases to go in there as well.
I am pondering...whether to have another cup of tea or whether to treat myself to a hot chocolate instead.
A favorite quote for today...is 'when all around you lose their heads, make sure you keep yours!' I heard it on the radio, it was in relation to football but I liked it for everyday.
One of my favorite things...has to be when I'm tucked up in bed, the TV on with recorded Craft programmes playing and I'm all cosy and I can sit and create Zentangles and get totally lost in creativity.
A few plans for the rest of the week - it will be a quiet week really, just spending time with my boy as it's the school holidays, catching up with friends and crafting. Oh there might be a football match to go to if I'm lucky!
A peek into my day.....I'm an early riser, it hurts too much to stay in bed for too long. My days are pretty boring in comparison to some but, for me, they are what needs to happen in order for me to be able to walk so my days involve lots of rest, crafting and reading essentially.
I hope you enjoyed reading a little bit about me and what life's like here in the wonderful world of Zoe. I enjoyed thinking about these prompts and writing my responses, some came easy while others I had to think about a bit more.
Take care Zo xx
