Mr Fixit and I had a low stress day today. We popped in at a friend’s house to see if he could fix her tumble dryer (it needs a new belt so it won’t be a quick fix) and then stopped in at our local library. I had a few books waiting for me (crochet ones) and I also found some fiction.
After lunch we drove over to a pottery market where lots of vendors were selling their wares. We didn’t buy anything but it was fun to admire all the handmade gorgeousness.
Our favourite tea shop was kinda sorta on the way home (only a minor detour) so we stopped for a tea and a snack.
I had an Almost Joe Fog with soy and maple syrup and a decadent slice of espresso Nanaimo bar (vegan of course).
The Nanaimo bar kept me going through some more sewing and how I have six of the hanging storage pods made and in situ.
The pegboards aren’t exactly pretty but they make me happy when I hang stuff on them.
Dinner is cooking- we’re having organic brown basmati with red lentil dal – and then I shall have a cosy dark evening to enjoy with a plethora of choices. Do I sew, knit, crochet, watch the Mandalorian, read or…?
Do you love this time of year with the longer hours of darkness and colder weather? I do.
