Three Day Weekend Equals Three Visits to a Craft Store

Errands, Bookwork, Snow, and Organizing

This morning I got up much earlier than I wanted to but I paid bills, did budget, and placed an order with our butcher shop - Sorgs.  Ken and I ran out to Sorgs through snow and wind.  After Sorgs and bringing the stuff home, we went to Joann's, Home Depot, and Wendy's.  At Joann's … Continue reading Errands, Bookwork, Snow, and Organizing

Day Off

I should be productive right?  Well my day off has been not overly productive.  I saw Stephanie off this morning and dozed until Vicki called me.  After talking to her while she drove to work, I dozed until 9.  Finally dragging my bum out of bed / sleep mode, I hit the computer to do … Continue reading Day Off

More Quiet, More Crocheting

Ken and I went to JoAnn's yesterday.  He hates it but was very helpful and even helped pick out fabric.  He's such a good sport, sometimes.  I got all the things I needed for the projects I have in mind.  The fabric is in the laundry being washed and dried so I can work on … Continue reading More Quiet, More Crocheting

After spending part of the morning on marketing, I got organized and Ken and I … Continue reading No Jammies Today

She came … Continue reading Second Day for Crocheting

We played in my craft room for a little bit before we wandered … Continue reading Craft Focused Day

To do is getting done

I'm nearing the end of a manuscript, I am pretty sure I'll finish with the chapter I'm on.  The problem is there is a lot to fit into this chapter.  I have story lines to finish, plot lines to clean up, and a murder to solve.  This book has been a little different for me … Continue reading To do is getting done

This Thanksgiving I have a lot to be thankful for.  My daughters are healthy.  Two of them are buying their first house. The weekend went as planned to a point.  We drove to Vicki's in Indiana on Wednesday night.  I was disappointed Virginia and Stephanie couldn't get time off to come up but understand that … Continue reading Thanksgiving… a lot to be thankful for…
