It's Been a Bright, Bright Sunshiney Day

The weather has been nearly perfect this week. Lots of sun, at least inland, and warm but not too hot yet. Temperatures are supposed to improve for the coastal dwellers this weekend, and there will be a little more sun too. Sunshine on the coast is kind of iffy in May and June in California.

The weekend is almost officially here, and I hope to get back to work on my current piece. On my lunch hour I ran up to the fabric store (yes, it is dangerously close) and picked up some more "sky blues" just to be sure of enough variety . I picked up a nice King Tut multi-colored blue thread as well.

It seems that even with the best of intentions I am too busy or too tired to get back into my work room at the end of a long day. A little time is better than none, though, and this morning I found myself wide awake at 3am. I decided to go to my room and work for a bit, and so I did, getting back to bed and to sleep for another couple of hours at 5 am. Waking up at 7am, I had the fastest shower in history and made it out the door to work by 7:35am. Maybe this will be my new pattern, after all, it's not like I'm sleeping.

You must be having some of those nighttime hormonal surges!! I would love some of your sunshine. I think it is arriving later today or tomorrow. I hope.

I've been a wee-hours of the morning sewer over the years, not so much now, but definitely in the past. The only thing that holds me back now is that my sewing machine is next to my DD's bedroom, so I don't want to make unnecessary noise. But I agree, if you're not sleeping anyway you may as well do something fun. I hope you had a great birthday.
