I really don't know what all I've been doing this week. Trying to keep up with my weekly goals, I guess, and partly succeeding. The week has been odd and somewhat disjointed because Mr. T has been home part of the time due to weather. And the weather has changed several other things around this week, making it even odder. So let's see ... what have I accomplished?
I keep trying to declutter my crafting desk and today I think I may have succeeded. (The picture below is from a previous year, but that's how it looks, pretty much, only with some different cards.)
|I put seasonal cards under the glass on my crafting desk. They delight and inspire me.|
I finished lesson 9 for Sunday School and have made a good start on lesson 10. That always takes some time.
Monday is always a huge laundry day for me, so that took up a good part of that day.
|Wish I could say my laundry room really looked like this!|
Cooking and baking are often ongoing here. Monday we had leftovers; Tuesday (I think) I made focaccia bread and an easy bean soup for supper. Last night, leftovers again. I made a double batch of granola today and froze half of it. Supper tonight (which I need to start soon) is going to be California Egg Casserole, hash brown casserole, and a fruit salad.
Mr. T was home all day Tuesday so we went to our favorite diner for lunch. Well, I had breakfast -- scrambled eggs, corned beef hash (homemade) with hollandaise sauce and home fries. He had a burger with blue cheese, bacon, and fries. Not too healthy, but we did go for a walk while we were downtown!
Yesterday it snowed all day. Knowing it was coming, I did the usual Wednesday tasks at my dad's on Tuesday night instead. That meant I didn't have to go out at all yesterday (other than to the mailbox). What a treat! I would have liked to spend the entire day crafting, but opted to do housework and other tasks in the morning and spent most of the afternoon crafting. I'm working on some pretty pieced placemats that are using up a bunch of my Christmas fabric stash. I want to make a set of ten. They will be all different but will have some prints in common. These sort of match a table runner I made a couple of years ago. I have finished five of the placemats as of last night.
I also finished making a bunch of gift tags from the 2011 Christmas cards.

Further discombobulating my mind is the fact that we didn't have church last night due to the snowstorm. At this point I barely know what day it is! So that is a peek into my out-of-the-ordinary week. Hopefully I can post some pictures tomorrow.
