Domestic goddess

Today, I think I officially achieved "domestic goddess" status!
Before 9am, I sewed a ballet bag for Ellie. Then, I went to my knitting group to see my peeps.
On the way home, I ran errands.
At home, I prepared burgers for dinner and baked cookies.
Then, I cleaned like a mad thing, and we had friends over for afternoon tea and playtime.
Tonight, I will be babysitting for friends.
Sewing, knitting, shopping, cooking, baking, cleaning, entertaining, child-minding...woo-hoo!
Tomorrow, Sunday will definitely be a day of rest.


Update: I was wrong! Sunday brought a next-level domesticity encounter that was both relaxing and really good fun. I took an afternoon scoot over to the new Jo Sharp store in Cottesloe to check it out. I was the only person there besides the woman behind the counter (it's unusual for a shop to be open on Sunday). We got to chatting about yarns and patterns, preferred projects and techniques. I have a strong preference for circular needles for all projects and she's a straight needle knitter, so I offered to show her "magic loop." She offered me a cup of tea. I was in there about an hour and enjoyed every minute. As it turns out, she was Jo Sharp. So, I spent time this afternoon with an internationally-known knitwear and yarn designer, with me as the new knitter showing her a new knitting skill. I love it.
p.s. If you see Lumina yarns coming out in purple and/or raspberry red, you know who requested it.

Define "rest." I bet you can't.

Thank you so much Domestic Diva - we had a lovely night out and very much appreciated you looking after our two boys. Junior was very disappointed when he got up this morning and you weren't still here! Enjoy your Sunday and don't forget you need a night out sometime soon!

You are definitely a domestic goddess! And I LOVE the Jo Sharp story!!! How cool!

You have inspired me to try my hand at knitting and sewing. We have a brand new craft store that opened, and they offer all sorts of classes. I thought I'd try a few and see how it goes :)
