Sunday, by 3pm I shockingly told Hubby, "I haven't had a hook in my hand all day!" Nope. We had a lumberjack breakfast, cut a load of barn wood (making another dent in the debris pile), and spent the rest of the day in the kitchen. It was a meatloaf, potato kind of day. I also got a frittata baked for on-the-go breakfast, along with homemade blueberry pancakes for those who were not on the go. With breakfast baking/cooking freeing me up today, and the bed sheets already washed and dried, I'm ready to tackle cleaning chores today.
On the breakfast plate. . .
Looking out the window . . .
Sunshine and warm however, high of 55° but rain is in the forecast (and we all know how mushy the ground is after a thaw, so we don't need rain).
Right now I am. . .
-writing down the new recipes I want to try (tincture, deodorant, and some food recipes). Oh, my youngest daughter finally took my suggestion for coloring her hair with coffee grounds and coffee. I think she'll be making a video to post on YouTube as well. She said it felt so refreshing on her scalp. If she does, I'll share the video.
Thinking and pondering. . .
Calling all yarn stashers! I'm looking for more yarn. This time it's a cotton yarn I need:
Peaches and Creme, Cotton yarn, Color: Bright Orange 01628, 2.5 oz.
I can find it on ebay and etsy, but for high prices. Gosh, Amazon wants $7.20 for one tiny ball (when these sell for less than $2 in stores). If you have this yarn, and want to sell it at a reasonable price (USA shipping), please email me.
On my bedside table. . .
-homemade lip balm, crochet needle and hooks, a cup of water
On my TV tonight. . . .
Whatever we find on Amazon Prime.
What I'm listening to. . .
- nothing, radio is not on and it's nice and quiet.
On the menu this week . . .
- have no clue, leftovers tonight so it's easy going all week
On my to-do list. . .
-wash towels and possibly hang them outside
-take towels off indoor clothesline and fold
-make tea infusion
-floors, all of them
-prepare roll dough
-pick up books at the library
(short to-do list today)
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating. . .
- currently, cup coasters, more hats, baby blanket, another scarf, and more. I just pick one on the hooks and try to finish one by the weekend.
My simple pleasure. . .
Journaling by hand. Pen/ pencil on paper.
Lesson learned this past week . . .
Don't store cocoa powder in the same area as my corn starch (another story you will soon hear about)
From the camera. . .
Prayer list . . .
No special requests at this time. Family, myself, friends.
