When my older brother stopped in recently, he also brought me a bag of old jeans from his wife. I have already started cutting them into strips for another denim rag rug.
Sometimes you just have to "chuck" some projects and get on with life. Some are just better given away or pulled apart. I took apart the most recent scarf.....some things just don't need finished. Not right now anyway.
I am still decluttering and organizing. I have given myself the end of the month, so today I will be painting more kitchen cupboards and such. I continue to give things away, donate them, and more. I successfully used up my white yarn, to make towel toppers.
It's official. I am well. Sort of. Although I still have an occasional cough, and my eyes look like I haven't slept in weeks, and congestion comes and goes on it's own will, I feel much better. Oh, I am able to wake up before 7:30am and not go back to sleep now too. It helps too, when you have an 80 lb. hairy beast that needs to go out, and everyone else is still in bed. She tends to get right on top of me if I try to ignore her - ha ha ha!
I am back to teaching my 16 year-old daughter how to drive, and yesterday she did more 2-lane highway driving. Another joy of motherhood - Not!
Today, we actually had a sunrise we could see. It basically blinded me this morning, and I loved it.
Yesterday, our 13 year-old daughter left on her class trip to D.C. She is the second daughter to take this trip.
Baby goat may get the name "Ellie" soon. We get to see her and play with her every night in the house, for about an hour or more. She even took a nap on my daughter's lap yesterday. Sadie continues to "mother" that little gal too.
Yesterday's snow is no where in sight, and the sun is out - good laundry day. Days like these remind me that I need to get my seed potatoes and onions.....and soon.
