Today, March 14 (or 3/14), is pi day because 3.14 is the value of pi! And pi day is celebrated with pie, of course! I briefly considered making a pie in honor of pi day, but decided not to. It seemed more work than I wanted to do, especially with only myself to eat it.
Today was another, rather relaxed day. I slept in again (for some reason, my alarm clock, A.K.A. Dancer, didn't wake me up at 7 a.m. for his breakfast!). It was OK to sleep in because I didn't have to go anywhere.
It was a cloudy, overcast morning, but we never did receive the rain that was forecasted for last night/early this morning. Maybe it rained in some other areas, but we didn't get any where I live. Later in the afternoon, however, the clouds cleared and it turned out to be a sunny, warm day.
After my morning cup of tea, I went on-line for a bit, and then, settled down to do some office work.
Later in the afternoon, I did a load of laundry and, as usual, hung it up inside the house on clothes hangers and a wire clothes dryer/airer to dry. I am drying my laundry this way partly as a frugal, environmentally friendly way to dry the laundry and partly because my tumble dryer doesn't heat up and I haven't got it repaired or replaced!
Still later, I sewed. I've set up my sewing machine, so I am working on the quilt that is one of my unfinished projects. It's sewn using a method called "Mile a Minute" where pieces of fabric are sewn in a random manner and then, a patch is cut to your desired size. I am cutting squares that are 6 1/2 inches on each side. I am using up the bag of tiny scraps of leftover fabric from various other projects. The majority of these scraps are too small to be used for anything else. I have decided that this will be my "Mountain Climbing" quilt.
In the evening, I video chatted with daughter and spoke on the phone with one of my aunts.
Tomorrow, I have to go for a blood test in the morning. More office work in the afternoon and maybe more sewing.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in!
- A sunny, warm day.
- Time to sew.
- Being able to air dry the laundry.
- Video chatting with daughter.
How was your Monday? Did you have pie to celebrate pi day?
