Most days I have the entire day to do whatever I want. Some things just have to be done . . no choices to make – cooking, laundry, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms. You all know exactly what I’m talking about. Yesterday after I’d finished the things that had to be done, I went downstairs and suddenly I realized that for the first time in about two weeks, I had the rest of the day more or less to myself. No holiday cooking to do. Vince was gone back to work. Chad hasn’t gone back to school yet but he had things to do all day . . and I didn’t hear a duck call once!
After having not had a day to myself in so long, I had a hard time deciding what to do:
Would I work on the border blocks for this quilt? A few of the blocks are made but lots more need to be made.
I’d like to start quilting on this one. Should I piece a backing and start quilting on it?
Or, I could piece a backing for this one and start quilting it. Chad wants it and he’d probably like to have it before he goes back to school.
Then there’s a pile of new yarn waiting to be wound into a ball and used! Oh . . yarn is so tempting. A new order arrived last week from The Loopy Ewe and I haven’t had time to fondle it at all!
The Kindle beckons! I want to finish the book I’m currently reading before reading Atlas Shrugged again and I’m really anxious to get started reading it. It would be so nice to curl up with a quilt and read all day!
There’s a new cake recipe to try. The carrots and rolls have nothing to do with the cake recipe . . they were part of dinner. By the way, I was going to fix goose stew for dinner but forgot Chad had taken venison steak out already because he wanted chicken fried venison steak, milk gravy and rice for dinner so that’s what we had, along with rolls and Dilly Sweet Carrots.
Anyone want to guess what I did?
All those choices and I still stuck with my plans to make the border blocks for this quilt:
Got all the blocks done except the corners. Maybe today I can get this top put together.
