Been One of Those Days

It's been one of those days when you plan on doing one thing and end up doing something totaly different. First of all I planned on  writing this morning when I am better at it but that is also when I have the most energy. My plan was to work outside for a while, then come in and write. Well I didn't work outside because it looked as those it would rain. So then I started putting around the house and couldn't stop. By the time I did, it was lunch time. Sat down to have a sandwich and play around with our new TV. Our old (22 yr) TV finally went caput. Being that its a smart TV we get internet programs like Netflix and Amazon. Starting looking up shows and found I could watch a PBS Masterpiece Classic "Endeavor" 
You can see where this going can't you. I ended up watching season 2, all 4 episodes.
Now mind you it wasn't a total waste of time. I did do some quilting and crocheting.
I have started my Christmas gifts and these are cotton pads to remove make-up that you can wash and reuse.
I figure I'll make sets of 10 to give.
I plan on making bars of soap, wash cloths and some other items.

And for quilting I'm still working on the 30's sampler still. If I would get the surgery done for the carpal tunnel snydrome I have in both hands maybe I would have this done a lot sooner.  I just can't find a good time to have it done.
So its been a slow go at it.

The other part of this post I want to share is what I have been reading this past month. I made a personal goal to read/listen to at least 25 books this year.
I have 5 books to add to my list.

I found all to be very good books. Do have a favorite one of the group and that is 
Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas  Loved it
The others were,
This Happy Year by Will Bowen
Strawbale Gardening by Joel Karsten
The Sky Took Him by Donnis Casey
Mindfulness by Ellen J. Langer

Oh by the way I didn't spend the whole day inside, I did go out and mow the yard.

Believe it or not "the man of the place" would have me do this all the time.

  1. A few of my girls make those facial scrubbies. We use crocheted washcloths here too, but lately I've switched the type of yarn for them. I really need to get back to my Christmas handiwork. This time of year is better than fall.

  2. That is refreshing to hear that I'm not the only one making them. I'm curious about is the new yarn you are using for your cloths. Thank you for taking time out to write, heaven know most of us are so busy. Good luck on getting your Christmas handiwork.

  3. you puttering is productive!!!

  4. I love the idea about the cotton pads, neat and so is your 30's sampler. Such pretty colors.
    Guess who is mowing the grass at my place, .....me, so we can share our experiences with that. The man in my case does not even feel guilty.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
