Ken got the shopping done early this morning. With my list, coupons, sales flyer shopping and rebates, he saved over $20! This is about 20% of what he spent.
Last night I made a list of what I wanted to get done today. I meant to get up early, get to work, and keep at it as long as possible. I didn’t count on a bad night’s sleep. I got up this morning – woken up by one of the daughters. After talking to her, I did the rebates for the shopping. Then I proceeded to do nothing more strenuous than play a couple of games on my phone. I’m up and moving again. After I’m done on the computer, I’ll head back to the kitchen to do some food prep for the week.
If I find any energy, I’ll go back to the craft room and work on organizing. I have a few things Ken needs to carry out and put elsewhere – mostly empty rubbermaid containers. There is some stuff which is going in a box to our daughters in Atlanta. If my energy level stays, I’m hoping to make more of a dent in that room today.
Last night I worked on a skirt for a friend. I LOVE how it is turning out. I made the waistband using broomstick lace technique. Then it’s a simple hdc for the rest but with a vertical stripe – which means I have seven strands of yarn hanging down. This slows me down a bit but it is still coming along nicely. As I’m working, I’m writing the pattern. I’m trying to write it in such a way it doesn’t need sizing. However, I’ll have to see how successful I am at this. I’ve never written a pattern for clothing before – one of the reasons is I don’t like to size things.
New experiences are good even if they are a little scary. I’ll keep pushing forward and hope it works out. Once I’m done with this size, I may have to try the pattern on a larger size to see if it works for the plus size person.
Unfortunately, with the bad night’s sleep I just want a nap but Sundays are a bad day to nap because I have to go back to work tomorrow. I’ll have to find my energy and work on things which keep me moving forward and awake. Hopefully that means I accomplish a lot but only time will tell on this.
