Good morning. Yesterday was lovely here. Bright, sunny and increasingly mild as the day went on. Long may it continue!
I finished the top. It really is an easy pattern and the only thing I didn't get quite right was the sleeve seam which is just a bit too low down on the shoulder. It doesn't matter, but I have made a note of all the fitting tweaks so next time (and there will be a next time, it's a very useful pattern indeed) I will know what to change. It's hanging up in the wardrobe now and goes really well with my dusty pink jeans.
I'll try the square necked version next time and maybe cut it a bit longer so I can wear it with jeggings or leggings - I do need my top to cover my bum when I wear them!
Going through the algebra chapter on simplifying terms again was a very sensible thing to do. It made a lot more sense this time and I was able to sort of consolidate the new stuff. It's on to brackets today and that's going to be v-e-r-y slow and steady.
I was delighted to discover a parcel outside my front door. It was the strawberry plants I ordered a couple of weeks ago and it gives me hope that I may receive the tomato plants as well, fingers crossed. I gave them a good water and today or maybe tomorrow I will plant them out in the strawberry bed to fill some of the gaps.
While I was doing some tacking and some hand sewing yesterday afternoon, I turned on YouTube and watched the showing of Joseph. It was great fun and thoroughly enjoyable. I'm looking forward to next week's now - Jesus Christ, Superstar.
And finally, in the evening, Beth and I had our chat. Lovely!
I thought about having a less 'structured' day today but you know what - I am so enjoying the way things are going right now that I think I will carry on with it, at least for a while. Having some structure gives the day purpose for me. I know it's not everyone's cuppa and that's fine, but it's working for me and is a lot more flexible than it may seem.
So . . .
I'm going to search out Joe Wicks' workout for seniors and see how it goes plus some of Lindsey's programme.
Something in the house/garden
I'm not going to plan housework today apart from the usual stuff but I'd like to get the strawberry plants out and move some others that have rooted in the 'wrong' place.
Nothing in particular today.
I've already pulled some more fabric out of the cupboard and need to decide what to make with it.
After Eileen's recommendation, I will watch 'One man, two guvnors' from the National Theatre which she said she found very entertaining.
Plus, of course, the algebra.
So I seem to have a lovely, satisfying day ahead of me and I'm really looking forward to it.
Hope you have a lovely day too.
