Yesterday morning, we received a call from our neighbor wondering if we were going to the Labor Day parade in town. He always has a "train" in the parade and was in need of 3 more passengers, so he invited the girls to ride along! Needless to say, they LOVED it!!!
I spent three hours yesterday BEFORE the parade doing my week's worth of Pre-Calculus problems. I have a new curriculum this year, so I'm making sure I'm ready for ANYTHING that could arise. **shrug** It just means a few hours every weekend will need to be devoted to problems......what'cha gonna do?!?
BUT, since I did that...... today was really open for anything! Laundry was partially completed---a few more loads awaited. The dishes were done by 9:00 this morning (with DH's help.)
So...I really contemplated, but finally headed downstairs at 9:15. The FIRST time in over a month!
It was complete disarray with strips strewn all over the placed. The last project I left out-n-about was Perkiomen Daydreams, but I sure wasn't up to working on that monster today. Instead, I pulled out the latest Quiltmaker to sew up Step 2 of Bonnie Hunter's Christmas Lights mystery.
All 12 of block Y are complete....
Block Z (?) are almost complete---just need to have the 4-corners sewn yet. At 12:30, I headed upstairs for lunch, and never made it back down. After lunch, I actually was a bit motivated to do something with the bowl of cucumbers DH picked last night. So----3 pints and 1 quart of Dill pickles are finished, and 8 pints of Bread-n-Butter pickles (FIL's favorite)
I'm off to bed a bit early tonight to head to school by 6:30 tomorrow. I want to get some classroom time in before a morning 7:30-8:00 serving and hitting practice I scheduled for the girls. (We took the entire weekend off!)
