Is it Friday already? It has been a strange week with our college kids leaving on Wednesday, celebrating TMax's birthday on Tuesday, the younger 3 in varying stages of illness after LP's very high fever on Sunday. Oh, and trying to get back into a school routine with all that going on. And now we have a snow day because North Ga. got a half-inch of snow.
Last night was kind of a fun night because American Heritage Girls was cancelled and I started a new knitting project while we watched the BCS National Championship. Everyone stayed up late because we knew there would be no school today. I went to bed after midnight and slept in this morning until 8:30. Yum.
One of the highlights of our week has been entering Pioneer Woman's Smartypants movie quizzes this week. It's fun, but they're so hard it's ridiculous. Last night I was essentially on my own since dh went to bed and TMax, my devoted helper in anything intellectual, was wrapped up in the Big Game. This might have been the first time we (I!) got all the answers right, but I'm sure there were others there before me. You've got to be FAST on these things to be first!
I want to tell you about my basketweaving project that I started over New Year's weekend when we were sitting around with the inlaws needing an activity. I thought it would be fun to weave baskets out of newspaper, like the ones I had seen at TJ Maxx for $10 or more. As usual, I just launched into it without looking for directions or anything, just going by what I had seen in the store. How hard could it be?
(It's still wet since I coated it with Mod Podge)
Not too hard, evidently, but I think there is room for improvement after looking at this.
My second one turned out better, but I evidently didn't take a pic of it yet. Stay tuned.
TMax complained yesterday that I don't blog enough. He estimated that I post approximately 2.7 times per week. According to my reader, it's more like 3.3.
If I blog more, what do you want to hear about???
My sweet MIL brought me a present when she came---an old tablecloth that she thought I could re-purpose somehow. I'm looking forward to using it, and I have some ideas, but I am So. NOT. In. A. Sewing Mood. Especially since I went down to the basement yesterday and saw how badly my sewing/scrapbooking/former school room has become the major catch-all in the house and is not a Very Pleasant Place to Be. I'm going to have to do some serious reorganizing and cleaning before I do any sewing. Yuck.
Seriously, it is so bad, it's worth a Before and After blog post.
I know you'll be on the edge of your seats waiting for this one!
I finally started slowly, very slowly and casually, taking down Christmas decorations yesterday. I'm not in a hurry. I have my Christmas tree lights on all day and I love them. They give such a happy glow to the dark winter days and nights, and those cold, early mornings!
Have a great Snow Day, everyone!
