cool orange thingy

orla's not too happy that emily gave me this cool orange thingy to hold my yarn in. now she can't knock my balls of wool on the floor and run off with them anymore....

for those who wake with a blind headache
who must be still
who will sit and wait
for sunday to be monday

yeah it will be ok
do nothing today
give yourself a break
let your imagination run away!

i love this song about sunday

i spent most of today here at a talk by this great guy and felt super chilled out. the perfect way to spend a sunday! hope you are having a relaxing sunday too whatever you are doing!

love sweet love

what the world needs now is love sweet love

happy love day everyone! i have been getting all soppy and reminiscing today: he sent me all 9 of these valentines cards, year after year from when i was about 6 years old! i found them again this week and got a wee bit sentimental. she taught me what it was to be loved and to love unconditionally, and that's the best kind of love! only this man will forever be the love of my life.

today i am grateful for all the love in my life past and present!
