It's back to work for me today, after a day and a half off. I enjoyed this time so much and especially because of the one thing I DID NOT DO ... housework! There was reading -
There was a lot of cooking and baking - pot roast on Tuesday, chicken and dumplings on Wednesday and two loaves of honey oatmeal bread (mom will get her loaf today! Ours is almost gone.)
I pulled out my Magic Bullet and will make myself a smoothie to take to work this morning - blueberries, flaxseed oil, wheat germ, cranberry juice (watching Dr. Ox and talking to Patty again!) I have resolved to eat more sensibly in 2011. I probably could have cut out that third slice of homemade bread! More than anything else, I worked in my sewing room and played with the dogs in the great white winter landscape.
My Valentine runner is coming along beautifully - the reds are very intoxicating to work with! As I put these cottons together I think of how smashing it would be to have such a quilt on the bed, reserved for the dreary month of February. I'm still on the self-imposed fabric diet. This includes new projects. (sigh)
I was about 300 rows short of finishing my Hanson Hilflowers shawl. Something didn't look correct. I checked the chart and dammit, I had left out rows 13 through 16 ... TWELVE ROWS BACK! This is a first for me. It is a humbling experience! I have to go frogging -
I'm pretty sure that it's HIS fault. It's difficult to keep count when the snoring factor is so loud!
