It's a gloomy day here in Pamkittyville, weather wise anyway! I don't mind though, it's a perfect day to stay home and do something. Ok, I admit it, I'm TRAPPED home as my car is in the shop. Drat. But on the bright side, I have some new magazines to read. And plenty of vacuuming. Color is really making me happy lately. These two magazines covers have me all excited about spring. I just want to make stuff when I see them.

Even the January Nordstrom catalog is telling me to get busy.

Here's my sunshine today. I love those mini daffodils, what about you? I could carry this pot around the house with me so where ever I am they're cheering me on.

Ok, what's up with you guys?

I was just looking at Etsy and saw an afghan in aqua and cherry that made me think of you - hope you like it!

Plenty of "vacuuming"?! I hope that's codeword for "sewing". :D

Hi Miss Pam!!! Just thought I'd pop in to say hello, I haven't been blogging much in a while but plan to get back to it! I have the Fresh Home magazine sitting on my coffee table and I just love the colors on the cover too! XOXO

Well, Jack is missing yet another day of mega expensive preschool because I also have a car in the shop. I am on load 128 of laundry (with 134 to go I am sure) and I really need to get in the sewing room and attempt to clean that freaking mess up. But it's scary.

Yep, I grabbed that Nordstrom catalog cover for my inspiration board this month. I am throwing out years worth of magazines this week and emptying my sewing room , getting ready for the floor to be refinished and a new paint job. Tiffany blue I'm thinking.

Say, would you leave those daffodils right where they are so I can see them all day? Thanks!

In going thru my old magazines to tear out what I have to keep, I discovered I'd already started tearing up that new Country Living! Yikes! BUT, there's the most GORGEOUS doormat ever in that issue and you'd better believe I'll be ordering it!

I have cleaning to do today. I also should be outside doing some clean-up work out there but it's way to cold and damp! Mr. Sunshine, come back!!!!!

I need to take Maggie to Petco to get her Denta Bones - girls have to have a nice smile. Then tonight I'm taking a quilt top to put it on the quilting machine so I can get it finished for retreat.

There goes Monday...

I'd much rather read magazines than vacuum. Unless it means something else like Pookie said-sewing!

Let's recap:


Those daffodils are schweet!

Also, why is it that on most any day of the year, I wish that I could just stay home and not have to go out at all, but if my car is unavailable, all I want to do is GO SOMEWHERE???

Oh Pam! Thank you for the daffodils - we won't be seeing any here for months!

I love how KathiD has decoded your tweets and posts!

I'm trapped too, but no cool code words for me. I'm just too lazy. Hope you're having a great day!

PS... New scallop and I've gone wider too. To make my butt look smaller.

When I saw your dafs, I thought perhaps I'd pick some up this afternoon to brighten up my sewing room. Then I remembered my cats will just eat them. *sigh*
Maybe I'll just put up a photo of some.

Give me some pretty magazines and the world can go away for a week.

No daffodils for me. I'm allergic. I am super busy at work getting ready for a new data base system. I know it will be a couple of months before it is smooth sailing.

Ohh...just cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. So much infact I dream about organizing in my sleep.

Color?!!! Me, too!

Did you get pounded with rain last night? We sure did!

Is "amping" color the new way to describe making your color "pop"?

Oh the daffodils are pretty! We won't get ours for a month yet.
