I watched Downton Abbey...the first season yesterday. I missed it when it was on TV and so I got the DVD's at the library. I had to know what all the talk was about. Joe had a meeting, so I had the evening to myself...I got a cup of tea (you have to drink tea to watch a British film) and settled myself, with my sewing, to watch this masterpiece. I loved it! I was swept away to England and watched several of the episodes. I'm hooked...and now I have to get season 2 from the library.
I was out for part of the day yesterday and did a few things. It really got warm in the afternoon....so down to the basement I went. I had started sorting through all of the wreath making materials a day or two before and I had to finish up. I got that done and plants watered, work table tidied up and then started something that I had to get done soon....getting the cushions out for the front porch. Last year I took an old bench cushion and recovered it with an old quilt. The quilt was one that I had bought at Walmart...not really of any value, so I used it to cover the cushion and I also made matching cushions for my Adirondack chair. The other two chairs had a couple of mismatched cushions and throws tossed on the backs. I checked out their condition and decided to take them off and wash them. So, I spent a good part of the late afternoon and evening washing the covers and then sewing them back on. I was sewing on these while I watched Downton Abbey.
Today I'll be in the kitchen making some pineapple upside down cupcakes that I found on Judy's food blog... http://thesouthernladycooks.com/2012/03/08/pineapple-upside-down-cupcakes/
We are having a celebration at Church this weekend...a St. Joseph's Table and many of us are bringing food for that. I'll post more about that tomorrow.
So, even if the weather is nice out...I will be in the house today. I guess this could be called "pacing myself"
