Things are on the up here on the hill. Summer has arrived in Switzerland and as usual I am amazed by the fact that after months of complaining about the weather being lousy it takes only two days before people start moaning about the heat….that being said it was steaming hot in the office this afternoon…but I refuse on principle to complain about it.
Several of the ongoing problems here seem to be resolved or at least on the way…..I knew that it would just take time and hanging on in and plodding through the days taking one step at a time. Several problems are not likely to be resolved….particularly those concerning a certain elderly member of the family’s refusal to consider any senior living options – but I’m just putting them all in a nice little drawer somewhere in the back of my mind and refusing to worry about things I can’t control.
I’m snowed under with work….counting down the days to an audit in 2 weeks time….but I think it’s all doable and I know it’s going to be wonderful when the audit is over….at least I hope it will be…that’s what’s keeping me going. I spend a lot of time on the train just imagining how wonderful the sense of relief will be!
Anyway in between the hectic I managed to make some blocks for Katy for the Stitch Tease 2 bee. I love the newspaper fabrics and haven’t found many chances to use them, so it was fun to make these blocks!
I really find my zen when I’m sitting at the sewing machine. I should really make myself sit down at it every evening – I know it would do the world of good. What I tend to do when I come in – and which is every bit as good, if I’m honest – is wander round the garden, ignoring the weeds that are springing up everywhere, and seeing what has burst into flower that day. Today was a really good day in the garden – a lot of my favourites are flowering…
Gorgeous aren’t they? I’m enjoying them while I can because I know a lot of them will be shredded by the first big thunderstorm that comes along.
I hope the sun is shining where you are too and that life is on the up!
