Minutiae of Domesticity

Finally I have time to enjoy it.

Time to do about ten loads of laundry.

And love it.

To go to the movies, even curiously unsatisfying one like La Vie en Rose. At least there's some interesting knitting in this one, as there often is in French cinema.

To make up for being a crap friend lately.

Like making a humungous Shepherds Pie for a friend in need of a little help right now.

recipe for Shepherds Pie, yarn, grated nutmeg pod

Time to make a scarf for another friend's birthday.

Coffee, Bainbridge Scarf in progress: Lana Liza Merino Diamond- bought a while ago while mooning around in Rubi + Lana's grey corner-, Scout's bum.

Sitting in the sun on a Sunday morning and knitting instead of working.

I appreciate it, oh how I appreciate it.

Doing the washing can be curiously satisfying, can't it - I think when you actually have time and aren't putting a load on in between doing 100 other things. And especially if it involves handwashing the handknits.

Sounds like you've had a good weekend. Now must go and make a shepherd's pie (yum!)

Sounds like you're enjoying your vacation, cause I guess that's why you have all that time to spend?! Enjoy it!!!

Sooo nice to emerge from a spell of too much work - and it looks like the weather played along too. Yum.

Domesticity and daily routines. They can be oddly satisfying at times, can't they? I know I occasionally love to take some time just to organize my desk or kitchen cupboards. You know, just for the kicks. :)

Sounds like a wonderful day...always nice to stop and catch your breath after an intensive work session, isn't it?

Aww, knitting and Scout's bum. What could be better?

Call me weird, but I always like doing the laundry (the rest of the housework, not so much). And today I get to wash (and block) a FO. Yippee.

Glad to hear there's interesting knitting in La Vie en Rose. Good enough reason to see it. I recently read in Edith Piaf's autobiography that she spent the hour before her first stage appearance locked in the toilet, desperately trying to finish a sleeve for a jersey to wear onstage.
