Finding Margin Again

Margin in my life has been missing for some time, I don't even know how long. But, having hit a brick wall of sorts, margin is coming back. Somewhere this summer I sat down and started crocheting again, and I couldn't believe how good it felt. Then one day I picked myself some flowers and made a tea tray, and it felt like a luxury.

Margin is where the time for these little things that really matter comes from. I am painfully aware that sometimes margin just isn't available, no matter how hard one looks.

Now that I've turned a corner, I'm looking forward to more margin and here's what I want that to include:

Tea Trays
Flowers picked from the garden
Baking a tea time treat
Sitting on the back patio
Watching a movie during the day!
Sewing something for the house
Browsing at Goodwill
Writing a real letter
Reading blogs again
Writing blog posts
Reading more novels
Practicing calligraphy
Buying a nice hand soap for the bathroom
Finding a new tablecloth
Decorating the mantel
Sorting photos
Lighting candles (especially the beeswax ones I got at the fair)
Reading British Country Living magazine
Reading nature writers
Reading gentle writers like DE Stevenson, Rosamund Pilcher, and Elizabeth Goudge

I'm open for more good suggestions if you have some!

How about:
Going to the farmer's market
Meeting someone for lunch or tea
Going to the library to browse
Taking a class
Taking a walk
