AH, almost there. I need to pick up a few extra buttons tomorrow, enough for 9 sets of eyes and feet. Then I can get to work stitching up the other 8 lady chickens. I raided the US sensus records for good chicken names, going all the way back to 1889 – boy there are some treasures back there, Matilde!?!
A new/used engine goes into the Corolla next week and hopefully we’ll have a running car by Thanksgiving :)
In the meantime I have 4 pies a carrot cake and some mashed turnips to plan. We do T-day at my Dad’s and we also celebrate his birthday(hence the carrot cake, his favorite)- Dad hates turnips and won’t allow them to be cooked in his house, says they smell like boiled gym socks, but my brother in law loves them so I cook em at home and bring them along.
Today was the first day of my three day weekend and I’m feeling very productive. I started Dad’s birthday gift, I’ll be done by tomorrow night. I got one chicken 95% done, and I added another 4 inches to a vest I’m working on for the store. I also made lunch and dinner, washed dishes and got the kids to bed without a scuffle. Alls well.
