Friday fill-ins

Looking forward to September is my favorite only summertime comfort.

2. My favorite John Hughes movies is (oh dear, I never saw one...)

3. Velvet
is something I love to touch. I even love to imagine touching velvet. In fact, when I have a migraine, I imagine a soft, dark green velvet pillow beneath my head. I still regret not buying a pair of green velvet gloves when I was Harrod's. I might have a bit of an unhealthy love of velvet. Maybe I shouldn't be telling you this.

4. The full moon delights me more than almost anything. Not everyone sees a man in the moon - some see a rabbit...

5. Somewhere, someone is writing a haiku
right now. I wish it were me.

6. When daylight fades I want to be home.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching "Real Time" with Bill Maher
, tomorrow my plans include finishing a knitted hat for Care to Knit,and Sunday, I want to spin with one of the pretty spindles I've been collecting and knit with the my Ravelry peeps.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

I've been wanting to comment all week but various things got in the way...

I love velvet too. I am dreaming of a purple velvet curtain to hang in our dining room door to keep out drafts.

When I was little my dad used to tell me to look for the 'boxing rabbit' in the moon.

And I always make sure to check out the full moon when she's out...

I'm looking forward to Bill Maher as well. Even more than him, True Blood on Sunday. Forgot to add that into mine.

Ah - the rabbit in the moon! I'll look for her tonight, the view of the moon has been wonderful here for two days. I've been out several times to enjoy it!

Velvet huh? Very nice.

Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics, too. I like to just pet it. I have a t shirt dress made out of brown velvet that I love. I just never find enough places to wear it.

Bluuuuuue velvet...!!

Pity you didn't get those gloves.

I also like velvet, it's sooo smooth. Thanks for visiting my entry. Happy Sunday!

A Simple Life

Being somewhat of a home body, I particularly connected with your answers #6 & 7. Sounds good to me.

What a lovely painting! I love it!

You're not alone with the idea of touching velvet - or much of any other fibery texture, we're knitters after all...
