Homemaking in progress....
I don't know about you all but I can't sit still and be happy until my house is fully unpacked and everything is set up.
And I can say that it's finally there. OH joy, the sigh of relief I breathed last night was humungous.
I can now sit down on my couch with my crochet and work on dishcloths to sell, and just so you know I've decided against an Etsy store, I am old fashioned kinda gal and I like things simple, so I'll be selling my goodies through my blog here and on Facebook.
I've been slowly working my way through some dishcloths, I kind of did it in between boxes of unpacking and if I was resting for a few minutes.
Now I'm looking forward to being able to work on them whenever I feel like it. I figure with my family arriving next week, I have a few days to really make a dent on these.
I think one of my favorite steps of the dishcloth making, is in picking the yarn colors :)
So anyway, that's what I have been working on. We had glorious thunder and rain yesterday and it makes me so happy because living in Arizona for the past 7 years we hardly got any, it was so frustrating at times. I think we've seen more rain here in the past two weeks than in a whole year back in AZ. Crazy!
This was taken right after the rain, so pretty.
Today I've been super busy.
Had to go to base to get groceries at the commissary and then came home, put all of those away and had to run back out to Walmart to pick up a few things that I still needed, came back home and got all that taken care of.
I am now sitting down for about an hour to watch my Portuguese soap and then it's dinner time. I've been looking forward to that for a long time.
My fridge and deep freezer are stocked and I can't wait to get in the kitchen to cook, oh I've missed it :)
I'll have to come back and share the recipe, making some yummy chicken breasts with a bacon breadcrumb topping, potatoes au gratin and for dessert I have a delicious Lucky Leaf recipe for a review going up on the food blog. Just wait until you see it, think blueberries, lemon pie, whipped cream....yum.
Ooohhh my show is starting, time to head out. Oh and I didn't forget about the Happy Homemaker Monday, I'll come say hi later tonight :)
