Weekend Options

The weekend looms in front of me with a large list of things to do.  It is pay week so that means all the normal errands.  In addition, I want to go to Michaels for their sale.  They are having a sale on crochet cotton which I use a great deal of.  It's on sale for … Continue reading Weekend Options

The Quiet Life

Ken and I lead a quiet life.  We go to work.  We come home and are home bodies.  He does stuff around the house.  I write and crochet.  Rarely do we go out to socialize. Yesterday my boss had a holiday party at his house.  It was fun to get together with the people in … Continue reading The Quiet Life

On Track – ish

Back on schedule - sort of - last night I worked on seven small projects and got them done.  I didn't finish the one project because I want to take the time to lay it out and experiment with the next step.  I want to lay it flat and look it over.  I also listened … Continue reading On Track – ish

Yesterday I was on track.  I came home, paid bills, took care of all the payroll stuff I needed to.  I was tired … Continue reading To Do … What Should I Do?

Coupons, Crocheting, and Book Sales

Ken did the grocery shopping this morning and saved over $9.  We went through yesterday and made the list partially based on the coupons I had.  Every little bit helps when it comes to the budget.  Today I have to get envelopes ready for the people I’ve clipped coupons for and get them out in … Continue reading Coupons, Crocheting, and Book Sales

Piles, Packing, and Organizing

I’m not really sure where January and February went.  March is already half done and I don’t know where that went either.  I know I’ve been busy with helping one daughter with health issues and the other daughters with different things.  However, I don’t feel like I’ve been able to catch my breath.  Stuff I … Continue reading Piles, Packing, and Organizing

Writing Projects

With the health issues going on in the family, I’ve not paid any attention to my writing.  I can tell I’ve not been writing again, my dreams are more vivid and my focus is a bit scattered because my mind is always wandering to the stories in my head.I just came across a grant I … Continue reading Writing Projects
