I did a naughty thing.....
Yesterday, I literally put jammies and a thick robe on (at 3 o'clock in the afternoon), donned some slippers, turned on the "boob tube" (have no idea where we got that nickname for the TV), and crocheted until I finished this rug. Last year Zuri got a toy caught on it, and then her teeth, and I ripped out several rows. It's now finished, in the hallway, and it's "dog safe" for now. I'm thrilled I took the time to get another unfinished project out of my looming closet. I ran out of boxes to purge more books anyway.
Dinner was already in the crock pot - sweet potato/black bean chili. I ate that in bed too, ha ha! Hubby worked late, so I started crocheting on the scrap blanket too.
It's in the 50's today, but dark, and rainy. I sure hope the wind dries up the swamp we now have. The pellet stove is off, the wood stove is off, and I'm in the kitchen today. I should be cleaning a bathroom, but you know we have to make those big decisions, ha ha!
