Life is full of Choices

I've got two napping bugs upstairs and a little quiet time on my hands.

What I should be doing:
  • cleaning the bathroom
  • folding the laundry that's been sitting in the corner of the bedroom for 5 days
  • vacuuming the rugs
  • sweeping the floors
  • unloading/loading the dishwasher
What I am doing:

homemade-fresh-out-of-the-oven banana bread, tea, and Littlehouse Needleworks

Ahhhhh. I love naptime.

As my Grandpa used to tell my Granny, "Let's have a little more dirt and a lot less hell!" Granny tended to get her panties in a wad if her house was mussed :)
So I think your drinking tea, having bread and a little stitching sounds like heaven. I plan on having a bit of heaven on earth ALL WEEKEND and MONDAY too!

What a great picture - it looks very inviting and a perfect way to spend some quiet time.

Carol said...

That is the exact same choice I always made when my kids napped, Kim--that was the only stitching time I ever got back in those days :)

Great post. I had a chuckle about your laundry - I've had a basket of clean clothes BEGGING to be folded since Sunday now and every morning I empty it on the bed to find whatever and then at some point later in the day when the bed looks messy with all the clothes scattered about, I toss the clothes back in the basket ... they'll get folded .. or we'll just keep pulling what we need out until it's empty! :)

In my opinion, your priorities are just perfect! I remember trying to find stitching time when my kids were little, so I say if the kiddos are napping, that's a PERFECT time to stitch. Enjoy your downtime!

Hey, I have a list just like that but I really like what you chose to do instead! Yum.....banana bread!

Heather said...

I plan to do the same very thing this weekend. Schools out for MLK Day, so we will have a 3 day holiday. I'm looking forward to the rest. I love the napping bugs quote!
Hugs,

Nice to see you have your priorities straight!

What a cute post. I love it. Stitching, tea and banana bread always wins out over housework.

Catherine said...

Makes me wish my three bugs still napped!

Paisley said...

I think you made the right choice! Love your mug, BTW!

Sharon said...

Yum! great choice!

How can you NOT stitch on Poinsetta House? It's such a beautiful design!

I sure miss that naptime stitching. So, if you don't mind, I'm coming over.

I'd much rather stitch in quiet time so I don't lose count of stitches. You know how hard it is to try and count stitches when you've got someone asking where something is, or they just have to tell that joke they heard. Towels can be folded while talking and you don't have to worry about loosing count. Unless you count your towels, and in that case, girl we gotta have a talk! LOL!

That summs up my week off last week, now back to work though.
Gotta squeeze in more stitching time this weekend to make it up!

Your design is so pretty! Stitching and colors are gorgeous.
Enjoy your time!

What a great photo! I bet you enjoyed yourself...and you deserve it! Love Pointsettia House...so pretty!

Brigitte said...

I think I'd make the same choice, exactly the same, lol.
Loe the little peace pillow that you finished and showed in your last post. Very pretty.

Mmmm, for the first time ever, my two are both having a nap. My eldest gave up her day naps when the youngest came along.

I also should be doing housework, but this quiet and solitude is like gold. I am blogging and stitching!
