Making :  my bed with sun dried sheets fresh off the clothes line
Cooking : blueberry and lemon scones for school lunches
Drinking : peppermint tea
Reading:  The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern

Wanting:  to explore some new places with my family
Looking:  forward to another long weekend
Playing:   this Trixie Whitely mix on Youtube

Sewing: 2.5" squares together for my scrappy border on my Jacob's Ladder quilt
Wishing: I was going to Quilt Con with Rachel and Deb

Enjoying: lots of freshly picked cherry tomatoes from my garden
Waiting:  for my next Liberty fabric parcel from my sister

Liking:  freshly painted toenails and new summer sandals
Wondering: if I could get my children to do their own laundry like Meg does

Loving:  flowers in my garden and house
Marvelling: at how well miss B and Mr J  have settled so quickly into their new schools
Needing:  cooler evening temperatures for a good nights sleep
Smelling: my french pear scented candle burning
Wearing: my hair straightened
Following: a new to me blog
Knowing: I really need to cut my rather rampant star jasmine back
Thinking: it's too hot to do anything in the garden
Feeling:  a refreshing breeze
Bookmarking: lots of new recipes to try this year
