{ possibilities.... }

Friday afternoon - I love it when it's Friday afternoon and the weekend is full of possibilities. That doesn't happen that often because many weekends are filled with obligations, journeys, meetings, etc. (Good things in their own right, but they fill up the days.) This weekend is just a nice stay-at-home time with an abundance of choices. Tonight could be a movie night, but after ten hours at the office, Scott is usually just ready to chill on Friday nights. It seems that lots of patients have urgent eye problems starting at around 4:00 p.m. on Friday. So he's DONE at the end of the day. I don't mind, I have so many at-home projects sometimes I wish I didn't have to go to bed.
So what to do tomorrow....I could work in the yard - there's a truckload of dead leaves amongst the cotoneaster bushes - not to mention the spring dandelions popping up everywhere. Too bad dandelions aren't considered GOOD perennials.
I could wash windows. Oooh, they are so dirty. At the very least, I AM going to wash the inside windows above my kitchen sink and maybe I can get Scott to help me put up the ladder to wash the outside too.

What I'd really like to do is sit in my favorite reading chair and read the book I bought - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. It is supposed to be really good AND the cover is so beautiful.
I'd also like to get started on this stack - just look at those fabrics. They are YUMMY. Many of them are from Moda fabrics, the Aviary Collection by 3 Sisters. I have a project in mind, but I'm nervous to start...to cut into those gorgeous fabrics. I just need to plunge in!

Well, what will probably happen tonight and tomorrow, in typical Debbie style, will be that I will start in the yard and bounce to the sewing room, then decide to make cookies in the middle of it all and burn a batch, because I'll suddenly notice the window over the sink and remember that I meant to wash it. Can't wait.

Ooooh... tell me what you think of the book when you get started. I started it in Feb. but just haven't been "hooked" and so I'm finally just to the middle. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

If you give a mouse a cookie right?
