Today, it’s all about me around here. Syd is at school, Rob is at his company picnic, and I am off work.
Today needs to be equally divided between some organization tasks and some fun quilting, all accompanied by the sound of music.
I started the day with some machine quilting on Sydney’s quilt.
But, I ran out of thread. Oh, darn. A trip to JoAnn’s. The equivalent of having my nails ripped out with pliers. And, it gives me an excuse to get out, because I really need to go to the post office.
After I ran out of thread, I moved to some hand quilting.
This is so relaxing. There’s no need to be in a hurry because I can only hand quilt so fast and that’s it and there’s no reason to try to hurry. So, just enjoy it. Very peaceful.
And, then Sydney and I had breakfast and I did my first organizing.
I keep my cookbooks on a very deep shelf. They can stand two deep. I’ve recently acquired several new-to-me cookbooks and I needed to make space and put the cookbooks I use in the front and the ones I don’t in the back. I love to read cookbooks. I love to read the nutrition facts from all across the years to see how knowledge about weight control and good nutrition changed.
But, some of the recipes are a bit old fashioned and even those in a good nutrition cookbook from the 50’s have more fat than I generally include in a meal. And, their ingredient list was different. Lots of veal and wild game and lamb recipes that I don’t really see so much anymore. The new equivalent seems to be fish and seafood recipes.
Next, I plan to do some organizing in the sewing room and some quilting, and an errand…
Or, maybe I’ll just get comfortable and settle down for a movie and quilting marathon.
Can’t let that happen.
Be well and have a great Friday. Lane
