I don’t know why I’m glad it’s Friday — every day is pretty much the same for me — get up, cook, clean, sew, cook, clean, sew, cook, clean, sew, go to bed!
On Fridays I do tend to lollygag a bit in the mornings, which I should learn not to do. We have another window that has a leaking seal and earlier this week, I had called the building supply place about changing it out. This morning about 8:00, as I was still running around in my pj’s, Larry called and said the factory rep was in town and they were coming by. I told him I was just fixing to get in the shower, could he give me a little time. Yep, we have a couple of things to do. Thanks! Then he said . . see ya in about 30 minutes. I said ok and hung up. Then I thought . . 30 minutes! I have to take a shower, wash my hair, get dressed, take Speck for a walk and be ready to greet them in 30 minutes! I wanted to ask him if his wife gets ready in 30 minutes but decided I’d better be thankful they’re changing out my window and not mention my morning time crunch!
After lunch, I ran to the post office, bank, quilt shop, grocery store, got a haircut and spent a few minutes with the local realtor who owns the unsold lots in this subdivision. I want the back part of the lot next door and he’s not real fired up about splitting up the lot. There’s a creek that runs alongside our lot and then crosses right over the two lots next door. It kinda divides them up so they’re not very good for building lots but the back part of the lot next door, which connects to our lot, would go better with my lot than with the other lot. Maybe he’ll think about it for a while and then agree to sell me that back half. Or, maybe someone will come along and want to buy my house and we can move out in the country and get a few acres. Or . . maybe not. Vince is more of a city dweller but I’m so ready to be out in the country where I can’t see other houses and can have whatever farm animals I can figure out how to raise and care for.
What do you think about this?
When we were in Louisville last week, a week ago today in fact, gas was about $3.60. When we got back into MO on Saturday, we were thrilled to see it at $2.99 but this is what it is here today. And, look at that background. isn’t my little town just so pretty? Trees, sky . . everything is pretty here.
Last night I finally finished the borders on the quilt that I should have finished Wednesday morning. This is the fabric for what should be my next project.
But, the snowball project was calling my name. What little bit of sewing time I’ve had today, I’ve been making snowballs.
Oh . . guess what I did yesterday! I was grilling the shrimp and they were so pretty on the grill. I brought my camera out to get a picture (yes, I really should get a life!) but I never got around to taking a picture. This morning when I got up, the first thing I noticed sitting out on the deck rail — my camera! It was left out all night. Thank goodness it was my little point and click and not my beloved Nikon and thank goodness it didn’t rain last night. I’m sure there was enough dew and moisture that it wasn’t good for it but at least it still works.
Well, now you know what I’ve done for the last 24 hours! 🙂
