(I had no new and exciting picture to show you, so these are of a second little clutch purse I made yesterday - notice all the fancy and random machine stitching I added...I didn't even know my little old sewing machine could do such things!!)
I woke up this morning and Daniel brought me a cup of tea - wonderful!
I thought, when I get up, I'll go straight upstairs to paint and sew some more. Great plan!
But first I'll check my e-mail (big mistake!). I sat on the couch and suddenly the sunlight was illuminating every single dog and cat hair in the living room. Not to mention the dust particles flying around. I was horrified!
I jumped up and got out the vacuum cleaner and proceeded to vacuum the downstairs. Then I thought I might as well make the bed. And empty the dishwasher.
Then I realized that I hadn't eaten anything yet, so I had some homemade bread with almond butter and sour cherry preserves (yum!).
Daniel came by and mentioned something about a pumpkin pie. Did someone say bake?!? Of course I immediately made my favorite pie crust to have enough time to let it chill and bake the pie.
I got all my stuff together to take upstairs (finally) and saw that I had an email that the latest Real Simple magazine was available for download. I did download it and immediately got lost in all the great holiday gift ideas and recipes and the many ways I could make my life simpler if I could just get my act together...
By then it was lunchtime and Daniel had to leave for a meeting at school. I made him lunch and after he left thought I might as well eat, too.
Almost on my way up the stairs, I decided that I might as well bake the pie now so that it is cool when Daniel gets home and we can eat a piece. I rolled out the dough (oh, it was wonderful), assembled the filling and now it's in the oven baking.
I am staying downstairs so I can hear the buzzer go off and thought I might as well do a blog post.

I'd call that a great day!!
Wishing you one as well!
