Contentedness is...

...watching the dullness and rain going on outdoors when you're safely tucked up inside...




...indulging in a spot of hand quilting...





...stopping mid-afternoon for essential refuelling...





...reflecting on a day well spent...




...looking forward to dinner out tonight with my two best boys and afterwards, settling down in front of the fire to enjoy the chat in my sister's card and my new book...




Hope today is a good day for you, too.

(More on the quilting soon, promise.)
