With a husband who travels a lot, we find ourselves often very excited over relaxing days spent at home--together. Yesterday was one of those days. And so in honor of the day, we had waffles. Waffles made in my grandma's old Sunbeam waffle iron that may have originated in the 1950's. After a slightly darkened batch, we enjoyed several perfect waffles. It was a lovely way to start the day. The rest of the day followed in a relaxed, yet productive manner. Buttons and a pocket were sewn on a newly completed knitting project. A little sewing was done. Laundry soap was made and clothes were washed. I caught up the latest episodes of Downton Abbey. Several rows were knitted in one of my current knitting projects. And I enjoyed spending the day with my wonderful husband.
It was a truly wonderful way to spend the day, as today marks the start of the spring semester at the University of Minnesota. It's always nice to spend a day relaxing before beginning a semester of hard work.
Spring 2015, here I come!
