May 29, 2011

So tired today. Didn't wake up until 7:15! Moving the furniture the other day wore me out! Moving the TV last night tipped my energy over the edge ...

Nikky and this wind wore me out this morning. Walked to the mailbox. She is a little sled dog. Will start seriously training her after her spay surgery/recovery. She does know sit, though. She met Lucky, the local shaved Pekingese escape artist. He ran past a bunch of workers remodeling his people's mobile home with the owner chasing after, calling his name. He stopped when I squatted down and the 2 dogs started sniffing each other.

Going to catch my breath, then do a little spot cleaning of the carpet with the Green Machine. Then, YES, I will be sewing, damn it!

I did it! I finally made a tea wallet!

What's for lunch ... must eat before I make another tea wallet.

Mmm. Scrambled eggs with free-range chicken breast strips and O'Brien hash browns fried together.

Wow. Desperate Escape is on Lifetime Movie network. I never could find a good download of it.

Made another tea wallet while I watched Desperate Escape. Movie wasn't too bad. Better than some of Michael Shanks' movies.

My next project is 2 pillowcases for a swap. Will try to get those cut out later this evening. And, hopefully sew them tomorrow since I am not working until Tues. They are due out on Sat. Hope I have enough matching fabric for each ... Going to make a set of 4 coasters, too. Those will be easy using scraps.

I have hiccups. Hate hiccups. They always make me feel like I will throw up.

I've been cross-stitching. But, for the past hour I've been trying to un-knot some thread. Kids are making so much noise outside I want to scream. I CUT the knot out of the damn thread ... I hated wasting that ... so much for cutting out the pillowcase fabric tonight ...

FINALLY! Silence outside! It has been so damn noisy, I thought I was back at the apartment. People don't know what a decent bedtime is for kids these days. I don't car if it is a damn holiday. Five and six-year-old kids have no business being out so late! Nikky was in bed an hour ago!
