I am one of those people that cannot just sit and watch TV. I always have to have something to work on. Life is so short and there are so many different things I want to make so my hands are never idle. Would you call that weird?
Nah...not weird at all Carol!!! I am also one who can't just sit and watch TV, but rather than sew, I usually have the laptop up-n-running.
Today started off well---downstairs for a couple of hours trying to finish off a UFO (Lake-n-Lodge--the March UFO Challenge). yeah....I'm a bit behind-----oh well!
10:00 rolled around, so I headed up to make some brunch for the girls; the next thing I know, I'm cleaning the house!!!!!!!!!!
......it started with a simple tidying of the counter while the toast was .....ummmm....cooking? baking?.....OH! TOASTING!.....
anyway........ then threw some wet towels into the wash, then threw a couple more loads together, which forced me to gather loose articles from the bathroom, which brought me to scrubbing the toilet (EEEE-WWWWWWWW! it needed it!!!!) cleaning the mirror and counter...sweeping the floor....mopping the floor......headed back to the laundry room/entry way.....shook out the rug cuz I was tired of the loose dirt always clingy to my socks (ya know....where you always need to wipe them off on your pants legs or on the carpet to get them soft again....) then....organized the shoes/boots/sandles.....tidied the counter in there....swept....mopped......headed to the living room, where I made the BIG mistake of sitting for a moment.
Yup---I was done...enough cleaning for a day, but it sure needed it....
I babysat for a couple of hours this afternoon for a friend who had some errands to do; she has a 11month old boy; my girls had fun with a baby around again.
About an hour ago, I headed back downstairs to try to finish up the UFO; all done now except sewing the binding on. Maybe later tonight once the girls are in bed.!!!
Right now, I'm relaxing, waiting for DH to clean up from a day's work. We're off to Pizza Hut and Birthday shopping; Caitlyn (our middle) is 5 tomorrow. She wants a "bouncy castle"----so I've "bribed" her (and the other girls too) to clean up the loft in order for the "Birthday Fairy" to bring a Bouncy Castle. They're upstairs still....but I don't really think much picking-up is occurring; I think it's more like playing.....
okay---shower just turned off.....time to GIT!
