My Monday

I'm retired and hate getting out of my routine.  That sorta thing happens once you leave the work-a-day world and settle into a soft place.  Normally I wake up around 7 a.m., start my coffee and shower.

Drink my coffee leisurely until I'm well caffeinated then breakfast.  When it comes to making doctor appointments or other scheduled events I make them AFTER 10:30 a.m. when I'm ready to meet the day head on.  One of the comforting things about being retired ~ this is MY time and I've earned the right to move as slow or fast as I wish.

Not today.  Recently had a physical (on my time) but with the 12 hour fasting blood test it meant I wanted out of bed, in the shower (no coffee) and to the vampire as early as possible and get home to enjoy my caffeine and breakfast, albeit a tad later than usual.  Okay, all done for another year.  Except now need to schedule a mammogram but that will also be on my schedule.

The pleasant part of the day was getting an order for an antique rug I'd posted on my blog a few years ago.  It happens to be one where no information on size, source, etc was provided.  
I named it Rainbow Petals Antique.  The buyer wanted it drawn 24 x 36, which is what I did and will be shipped out to her tomorrow.  

In case anyone wants an antique pattern not yet listed on my web site, just contact me thru the site.  Or, if you want a different size than a pattern on my web site I can do that too.

Haven't hooked much on my present project as I've been busy today.  Stay cool, stay safe.

  8. Love that rug! I don’t get up early, but 10:30 or 11:00 are my appointment time choices. And then we can eat lunch

  9. That’s a gorgeous rug. I’m looking forward to retirement 😁. Rushing and meeting the demands of others is wearing.
