Yesterday afternoon I took a decent nap with Cordelia. I am a napper who needs very specific circumstances in order to get a proper nap.
- I need for nobody in the house to be doing anything of interest. If there is anybody around, doing anything remotely interesting I will not be able to sleep.
- I need Cordelia to be napping.
- I need to have something really boring playing on TV. A fairly simple task as we don't have cable and TV is generally boring. I use the sound from the TV to block out other noises on the street that might distract me. Yesterday I snoozed to people ice dancing to some sort of concert.
- I need to be really really tired...not much of a problem right now.
- I need a free schedule.
Then we all went out to my parent's house for dinner. I cut out the fabric while the guys watched sports and mom cuddled with Cordelia. Mom also loaded me up with tons of books on quilting.
After a lovely evening I came home excited to start my sewing project. I think this is going to be my best effort yet. My whole goal is to be a little more meticulous, slap dash is more my natural style, and really take the time to make this look like I mean business.
To celebrate that I am getting back in the creative game I decided to reward myself with a giant cup-o-hot cocoa. I put it into Eric's weird wizard/skeleton battle mug. Delicious!
