Beautiful day

Today was a beautiful day....warm, sunny, no breeze....just perfect for raking and bagging leaves. I truly enjoyed myself and tried to be "in the moment". That smell and crunchiness of the leaves, the sun on my was wonderful.

I spend a LOT of my time indoors at work and it was just so nice to be outside today.....just one of those "perfect days".

Sunshine on my back
rythmic raking of the leaves
brings me joy and peace.

I really had some things I needed to do.....dye wool, catch up on the laundry, shop for Thanksgiving dinner.......well, I did shop a little but just came home with clementines and pomegranates.....some things are just GOOD this time of year and I don't want to miss out! Can't wait to slice open that pomegranate in the morning and spoon it over some's pretty much all I can think of!!!

As Scarlett O'Hara says "After all, tomorrow is another day".....I'll shop and do laundry tomorrow. While we're on the subject of Scarlett, I found this video tribute....I love it!

Go forth and be creative,



  1. Hey Tammy...I have always loved that song...and I love the video tribute! Sounds like you had a good day. Finding pleasure, being grateful and taking time is what life is all about.

  2. Hi Tammy,

    Just stumbled in while shopping for wool on ebay...I live east of you in Neosho (south of Joplin) and was excited to see your snowman flirting and all your dyed wool! What great colors!

    Is there somewhere in Springfield to buy wool, dyes and so forth? Thus far, ebay is my only resource. I am finding others on the internet, but have not ordered anything.

    I just started my first hooking project last week, and I will be hooking til I can no longer pick up the hook...*LOL* Is great fun and I have 49 ideas for patterns in my head...

    Glad to find someone sort of close to me! Know of anyone in this area that hooks?

    Love and light,

  3. Mindy,
    This whole blogging thing doesn't let me see your e-mail, so hopefully you will check back and see this.
    I also sell my wool and rug hooking patterns and such at Simply Fibers in Springfield, MO

    I know there are a few hookers in Joplin, but don't know how to get you hooked up with them. I don't really "know" them, but I know there are some there.
    Feel free to contact me through eBay and we can e-mail back and forth more if you want.
    Glad you found me here!

  4. Hi Tammy!

    Love the new look!!! I'm on my new computer and hope to give my blog some attention soon. On a knitting streak and have almost finished the little wrap I bought the yarn for the other night. I may have to bid on that flirty little snowgirl pillow! Hope to get together soon. dulcy

  5. Love the video! I have to admit though.... I have never seen Gone With the Wind. Can you believe that?!

  6. love GWTW and the song... :) thanks for posting this!
