First, a contest.
Then some chatter 🙂
Can you tell me what this is and why I would be using it at this time of year?
Comment or e-mail me, Chicken Betty at G mail dot com, by noon on Friday 10/12. If more than one person guesses correctly then I’ll draw for the winner. That person will win a sock kit complete with yummy hand-dyed yarn, needles, stitch markers and a surprise goody (there’s a story for this one, too). Best of luck!
Yesterday’s plethora of finished tasks has spilled over into today. I have finished 60 pages for my History class, e-mailed my project group for my Child Dev. Class, scrubbed and waxed my kitchen floor, folded three baskets of laundry and washed 2 more, made lunch:
Super easy! Auntie Nan’s Taco salad. 1 Head lettuce , 1lb ground beef browned and
drained, 1 can kidney beans, 2 cups shredded cheese, 1 med bottle of Catalina salad
dressing and Doritoes to taste. It’s a fun and easy quick lunch.
I am currently prepping 3 dinners – freezer meals for nights I’m not home this week, sketching out costume patterns between chopping and sautéing, knitting a modified Hallowig and working on some holiday gifts.
I’ve been listening to Dave Brubeck while putzing around today. Take Five is running its course as I type this and I love it. My favorite part is the end of the ever so understated drum solo when the percussion has quieted to a point where you stop to pay attention because if the drummer is playing that low he must be doing something that you wouldn’t want to miss and BAM! Like a feather pillow in a dark room that saxophone comes back in to get you groovin’. Ah.
The hubby has gone grocery shopping, washed some dishes, rototilled the back yard – really though its like 40x 20 feet and nothing likes to grow there because its all clay and SO compacted, mixed in about a barrel of sand, some lime and laid some grass seed. Now he’s laying down a layer of leaf mulch and we’re all crossing our fingers that we’ll see green in the spring. Then he might blow a big leaf pile for the girls to jump in before the rain comes tonight.
The girls have folded their own laundry, played with the neighbors, fought with each other, helped a bit in the kitchen, done some drawing, reading, annoyed each other, eaten a good lunch and hummed all day without being aware that they were doing it.
