Yesterday I spent most of the day cleaning. First H and I did our weekly ritual of cleaning the apartment - it's a small space so thankfully this only takes about an hour or so (that's tidying up, dusting, vacuuming, bathroom, floors, the lot…one of the things I love about living small). Then I decided to tackle the office. I honestly didn't think it was that bad - maybe a couple of hours of organizing and I'd be good to go. It's a pretty tiny room, after all. Four hours later I was still going through papers and sorting supplies. But it was worth it. Now the space feels calmer, brighter, even spacious despite its tiny dimensions. And it definitely puts me in a much better frame of mind to get things done.

For today, I'm going to start by stealing a quiet moment, pouring myself a cup of tea, and savouring this little treasure. 

It's Pom Pom Quarterly's Autumn 2015 issue (with my North Toque pattern in it! ). It arrived on Thursday, beautifully wrapped in pretty teal tissue like a lovely gift. What better way to spend a rainy Sunday morning?
