Wow, I bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth, huh? I can't remember a longer stretch ever where I didn't post something! Actually, it was kind of nice. I mean, I wasn't sewing anyway, so no big deal, right? In reality.......I am going NUTS from boredom!!! Yesterday I took a 3 hour nap and then was up half the night wondering why I couldn't sleep. Duh!!! I need to get back on schedule! Only two or three more days! I'm thinking of taking the tree and decorations down the 26th and beat the rush! LOL
So, you wonder what I've been doing? I went to visit a friend who has Havanese puppies for sale.......and believe it or not, didn't even take one home (probably because they were too little yet.) My friend even bought a costume for them.....note below:
Then, I thought maybe it was time to clean out my pantry since I hadn't even looked in the whole thing since 2010. (Sewing really gives you an excuse for all sorts of things, did you ever notice?? Who has time for mundane things like dumb old pantry cleaning??) After a half a garbage bin of outdated stuff was dumped, it again looks neat and tidy:
And then it snowed..........and I hate snow! Don't even ask me why I live in Wisconsin.....hello!!! You'd think by now I would learn that Wisconsin gets SNOW, right? BUT, my whole family lives here, so I'm sort of stuck! Doesn't mean though that I can't stay in and just look at it, right?
So, between all that and going out for some breakfasts (which I rarely do), it's been a quiet few days. I had my gang of 14 here this past Saturday, we had fun, and tomorrow I will finish off the holiday with a close family dinner and gift opening. I hope all of you are having a relaxing time too. Isn't it supposed to be about peace and joy? That's what I thought!
Fear not though........things will be back to normal before you know it! Until then, live in the moment and enjoy the spirit of the season!!!
