This is my Valentine for my readers! Have a very happy day and weekend.
My husband and I will enjoy this evening in cinema. And we have made a "contract". We used to have the Saturday as our shopping and cleaning day. One day, J. noticed that I was constantly weak on Saturdays and needed a rest, and he said, oh, yes, we can't go shopping, it is your weak day again." I hadn't noticed this before, but since he said that, I have been observing. Now that he is gone during the week, I started doing the cleaning and shopping on Friday, and I feel much better about it. Isn't it funny? I believe that it is natural law to rest on Saturdays. That's why I decided to keep to this habit in the future. And he will support me on Saturday, cook and do part of the shopping.
My valentine for my sweetheart husband is a pillow top (or whatever) that he asked me to do months ago; It is a painting by the German Bauhaus artist Josef Albers. I was hesitating, because I thought it would not be creative to do something that someone else had painted. But I found out that this combination of colours works well, and here is the result after less than 2 hours of work.
Until now, I have made a rule for myself that I would stick to the genuine purpose of a thing. If something is made out of fibers, I want to use it as a fiber thing, as a pillow, quilt, or clothing; I did not like the thought of putting an embroidery behind glass, unless it is more than 150 years old and in some way remarkable. I wonder if I can stick to this principle.
The wren has just done his daily inspection of our balcony. I took a bad picture from the shelter, but did not want to frighten this little chick and maybe interrupt his mission. Lovely!
