Happy Monday to You

Small, simple things bring a joy all their own. The quiet of a Monday morning when everyone is off to work and school. A newly finished pair of warm and comfy, cheerful wool socks. A thick, newly purchased classic novel. A fresh cup of hot tea.


And you, for stopping to visit :) I hope your week is full of small, joyful moments too!!!

Staci,

I can see why those socks would make you cheerful! They do the same for me. I love the colors.

Enjoy your book and your tea.

Hi Staci!

Love the socks. Everyone knitting socks makes me want to learn how to knit better. Have a wonderful day!

Brigitte said...

For me it's the moment when I get home from school and before I start working at my desk. First I make a cup of very strong tea, then I sit down, take my book and read a couple of pages. That is one of the best moments of my day. Enjoy yours.

Hi Staci,

Another small, joyful moment??
A visit to your blog.

Ahhhh...those socks are beautiful!
I love the colours and the pattern.
These are just so darn pretty.
Pardon me for gushing all over your
blog here. :)

A hot cup of tea and a good book
sounds like something right up my
alley too. My goodness! War and
Peace. Now that's what I call
a NOVEL!! Let us know how it
goes. BTW: You're going to need more tea bags for this one.

One of the things I love about
you Staci is how you see things.
You see dish towels in the dollar
store and by the time you're done
with them they're worth a heck of
a lot more. Very sweet, very
pretty, totally neat!

And more red work for your
bedroom. Bliss!!

Your Stacy Nash pieces are so
simple and dainty looking.
Stitching like this always
makes me stop and look closer
because there is so much more
to them to be seen then first
meets the eye. The motifs aren't
crowded together or overwhelming
each other. You know??

Oh, and it sounds like you've
come up with your own catch
phrase...

Wishing you small, joyful moments
every day....

Cheers!

So, Slacker Staci, not much of a slacker are you? Those are pretty fine looking socks! Glad to see you enjoying a cuppa! ;-) Have a great week.

The color of those socks is definitely cheerful! Lovely!! And what a wonderfully relaxing start to your day. Enjoy!

tommiejo said...

I agree, the colors you chose for the socks are the best! My hubby keeps joking that he wants me to knit him some argyle socks! That would be a big no (at least for now-lol!)

The socks! Love, love the socks. Reading your blog has brought out my sock fetish. It's so great when you write about being at home. I'm living vicariously through you as I run off to spend the day with my entertaining young friends at school.

Jean said...

I love the closing to your post. I felt a warmth and sincerity.

You remind me to take time to enjoy a book. I leave mine by the bedside and when I read at night, I'm really tired. I need to let myself follow your lead- read, tea, warm socks (which are like rainbow sherbet!)

Ranae said...

Those are a pair of cheerful looking socks :)

Sonda in OR said...
