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
- calendar page
- purchase piano books
- pick up photos
- play with felt?
