happy homemaker post! Doesn't the cloud above look like a little star???
Our clouds are really outstanding.
|I know she threw a snowball...|
cold with 7" of white snow. Snow then meltwater in the sun. Then ice in the shade.
Oh and we can smell the far away stockyards from here, nearly every day. Peee-ewwww (don't be jealous lol! )
I'm writing this last night, lol, meaning Sunday night but it will drop in Monday morning
I am thinking, will I have to turn in my two overdue books, really? I'm not done...
Aside from dust, I like looking toward the family room from my typing perch. I like the older entertainment center we got at a yard sale, with the shelves and cds, tv, etc on it. I don't care if it's old fashioned. I never had room for one before and I don't like crooking my neck to look at a tv on the wall. I might be tiring of the Christmas tree... might... it's still January and it did snow and the icicles still are appropriate.
I'm sorry, I just don't mind eating the same foods each week. I'm too tired to plan like all of you do... and too much of a moody eater. In fact I'm not one for planning. I enjoy off the cuff.
keep track of library books better
the usual morning chores like empty the dishwasher and clean the coffee pot, walk the dog. Oh, speaking of the dog, er, poodle, I still need to grind his toenails since it was too cold to do it outside this weekend. They look like sloth nails
pet said poodle a lot more, he loves that and it's soothing to me too
Work in the studio on an abstract piece, from my picture of cattails in snow.
Finish reading those two overdue books
find out about changing the blog from http to the one with "s"... does it matter, do I have to?
Laugh more, drink more water, walk the dog
I keep a weekly calendar, by my fave Mary Englebreit, by the computer, for daily to do lists, to jot down phone numbers or suggested books, or passwords that changed, any little thing that needs to be remembered. It's all there, always by the computer, with a pen and my glasses. Kind of a little record of life.
The week on one page, I tend to lose little lists, or forget when I called the vet, etc. Not now.
There is a big calendar on the wall to glance at the month.
|Mama, come sit with me... watch the tv!|
Woohoo project runway all stars is back on A&E! I love seeing the challenges!
Victoria on pbs is back! yea!
The bachelor is lame but back, and I'll watch, yes I will. Don't judge me.
I've been watching my dvr shows "so you think you can dance!" and they were the most talented bunch of young things! I love love love dance. I can't erase the shows, I might watch again!
We watched another two episodes of the Moodys... it's a train wreck of a comedy but makes us guffaw out loud.
Watched Murdoch Mysteries current episode.
Waiting for Amazing Race to start... when is it ever coming back?? It's been too long
A quiet death by M. Talley is terrific! A friend suggested it, and it's set in Annapolis so she references all my old stomping grounds... lots of fun to read. It's well written and the plot is engaging so I can't give any away. She's written other books so I'll have to find them.
Also slogging through the art book for my group. They all love it, me not so much. I like them however so I'll keep at it.
DH got me a subscription to Country Home magazine, and the first issue came... I LOVE magazines
I have an art quilt group meeting on Wednesday, and have something to show, yea! I combined my RSC color of the month (red) with the color study in our study book, to do Rubies!
Also Painted on fabric last week, and want to make those into something.
I am just now starting on my latest abstract nature piece...the beginning is so much fun. The start, when it's all new and shiny, the idea seems do-able, the fabrics are pretty. Before it moves into the middle phase, when I wonder where it's going, what to do next, why is it looking wonky, figure I've just wasted all that time and money on supplies, it looks awful or worse boring. The last phase is when it looks great again! I love it! This may be the best thing I've ever done!
did I say that out loud?
I want to quilt the little Valentine piece I painted last week, then put beads on the edge. How to quilt the face?? will I add a word to it? Maybe...
I made a new friend this week, also on QuiltArt online. We met because she answered one of my questions posed to the list, and I loved her answer. We emailed back and forth and she's a terrific person. I feel richer, less alone for having met her.... even online.
even when my body hurts, I still go for a walk... and am thankful I can.
Even if I hurt, I go to the studio to make something, and am thankful I can.
Even if I hurt, I chat with long distance friends and am thankful they care about me.
Even if I have much pain, my husband loves me, and I'm ever thankful for him.
Inspirational quote, thanks to google...
