Sewing on the Brain.......8:06 AM
I sat down and looked through all my fabrics, the ones laying around the house, and I was surpised to find quite a collection.
That's when my brain goes into overload, tons of projects swimming around, what can I make??? Oh look at this one, it would be perfect for a little purse for Jasmine, or this one would be great for some placemats....and look at these scraps they would be perfect for a quilted notebook cover.
So now it's just a matter of getting organized and start sewing. I am going back to making handmade gifts for the holidays. I find they are that much more personal and at least for me, I love nothing more than receiving a gift that I KNOW the person put thought and effort into.
So that is one of my to do's today, at least get them all organized, makes me wish I had a Craft Room. Maybe one day when we buy our own house.
Seems that Curt is going TDY in two weeks. The kids are not happy about it because it's so close to Halloween, but you know it's just part of military life. If it's just the usual TDY's, he shouldn't be gone for more than two weeks, which means he'll be back in time, if not, we will make do, it won't be the first or the last time (I'm sure) that we will have to do without daddy being here.
So come right on in everyone, I wish I had coffee to offer you this morning, but instead I have some hot tea with some lemon and honey, soothes the throat and makes me better able to handle this cold.
This morning I had to run to the store with Nicholas in tow. I had forgotten that I was out of milk, something that I don't do. I'm usually on top of things like that, so I'm just going to blame this lapse on me feeling under the weather.
While I was there I figured I might as well get Gas....remember yesterday's post??? I DON'T like doing it!!!
It was 30 degrees, I'm not kidding you, it felt like the middle of winter....so I step out of the car go up to the machine and insert my bank card. It starts flashing "ONE MOMENT PLEASE"......after 2 or 3 minutes it says "PLEASE SEE CASHIER INSIDE".....DAGNABIT!!!! This is why I hate getting gas. So now I have to take Nicholas out of the car, he's crying that he's cold, my teeth are shattering and I realize that this is NOT going to help my cold at all.
I get inside and the lady says "I'm sorry, these machines are acting up lately, they won't accept anyone's cards". But that's no surprise to me. But anyway, the point of the story, and I DO have one, is that before 7am, I had already been out, froze to death, and managed to catch a little fever on the way. Thank God it's friday!!!
I have a house that is begging to be cleaned and more laundry to do. I want to get as much done as possible, so that I can relax on the couch in an hour, watching my new favorite show "Rachael Ray"...I just love that lady!!!
If you're looking for my "Friendship Friday" post, it's just below. You're more than welcome to join in and honor one of your friends :)
Have a safe and blessed Friday,
It's friday, so it means Pizza Night. The kids anticipate it all week, and only occasionally do I actually order pizza from somewhere else....we all prefer homemade. Tonight I'm making Hawaiian Pizza, which is pretty much just Ham and Pineapple. YUMMY!!!
Right now, I'm about to go fix some Burritos for Lunch. I have some Red Beans and Rice leftover from the other day, I have Tortillas and some shredded cheese, and that will be all it needs. They are soooo good. Fast and easy lunch :)
