Almost Finished, 3

Into the wee hours again. Once I got going on the hand stitching (running stitch) for the central design, I enjoyed this and could have gone on until morning.
I'm chafing at the bit because I can only manage to get to MY work after dinner.
I need a list to prove to myself that my time was well spent.
Yesterday:
picked oranges for market                    
divided bee hives
put 3 buckets of gravel into the garden bathtub
got the stove door taken off (stove to plant)
planted 3 cut off plastic pop bottles with cacti
cut bamboo for plant containers
oh, yeah, and cooked, did laundry, and washed the dishes and the kitchen floor

Ok, I feel better. It was a good day anyway, full of sunshine, good health, and blessings.

I love stitching in the wee hours. It's so quiet, and I know I won't be interrupted. This is beautiful, I can see why you wanted to keep stitching the night away. And that list? I keep a daily list for the same reason.
