A Little of This and A Little of That

I had some request to let you know what I accomplished from the list yesterday. I did pretty well. I did not however, get the oil changed (I seriously dread this task) nor did I play with that yummy pile of felt. I know, I know, how could I not play with felt...well, here's what happened.

I went into the craft room to hem my pants. In order to use my sewing machine, I had to move a pile of goodies off the desk. On top of the pile was a package of heart shaped doilies. Oh yes, I had plans for these....when I bought them, I was thinking banner....but, as I pull the chair out to sit at the sewing machine, I find a styrofoam wreath sitting on my chair. Hmmm...doilies plus wreath=valentine's wreath. So instead of playing with felt, I was creating this:


What do you think? I'm thinking it needs a little something. Maybe somethings sparkly or red. I want to keep it simple though and not froufy (yes, that's a word) or cutesy. Any suggestions?

I did also get distracted by another project yesterday. While dusting, I came across a folder of recipes torn out of magazines. Now, this folder has been sitting there for awhile now, but yesterday I suddenly got the urge to deal with this. So yesterday, I sorted all recipes (we're talking TONS of recipes) into categories, to match the categories in my recipe binder. Today I hope to glue these babies down to pages and insert. Although I did impose a try it first policy on magazine recipes awhile back as I had to rip out several in my binder after trying and not liking. Shawn might be looking forward to a month or two of experimental meals....

Again today, I am only seeing one kid. Already reduced schedule combined with lots of cancellations this week, leaves me home a bit more. So I've got another big list for today, here it is:

  • lentils out of the freezer (my dinner tonight)--done
  • work on class (more on this later)
  • finish recipe project
  • make Irish stew and biscuits for dinner (I owe Shawn a hearty meat meal after carrot ginger soup and pumpkin pasta on the menu already this week)
  • more mileage
  • knit
  • calendar page
  • purchase piano books
  • pick up photos
  • play with felt?
  • blog--done
First, I must go to work.
Happy Wednesday!

i love list...i couldn't survive without them! your wreath is really cute...i'd definitely add some color to give it some pop :)

I love lists. They really help keep the day organized.
As for the wreath, how about taking a couple hearts away, misting them, and then putting them back on? That would offer some punch and define each heart individually. It's a really cute idea!

One more thing to add to your list: Blog for Jessie (since clearly she can't update it herself). :)

Sounds like you're making the most of your 'extra' time! Happy lentils to you tonight... :)
