Thanks to Samurai
for saying this better than I would, but.....fun has become duty,
Quilting - at least one hand-quilted king size quilt and 3 queen/king size quilts behind.
Knitting - not behind really, but no challenge in sight. Everything has that "been there, knit that" feeling (and before you suggest it, I have never knit a full lace shawl, or entrelac
Embroidery - Meh
. working from a chart someone else made feels too much like cheating (if I'm so smart, why don't I design my own? Huh? Huh??)
Gardening - There are so many wonderful
projects on the back burner, but it's hot
and the rest
of the gardens need to be kept up (and Elder Son watered while I was away. Should dianthus
House Cleaning - Stop laughing! You there, get off of the floor! Do you know how long it's been since I washed it? (Although I did clean the freezer yesterday)
Re-Decorating - Elder Son can't find a place to move that he can afford until he does
move and can work as a tutor full time. As for the rest of the house, first I would have to get rid of The Husband so I can reduce the piles. I'll keep the piles. Beside most of the summer money I saved is gone due to one emergency or another.
Baking - Sigh. I did bake up a storm yesterday, but all from tried and true recipes. The boys are convinced they will starve if I go south the The Husband for two weeks. I made four kinds of cookies yesterday. Now if I would only clean the basement
freezer, I would
have some place to put them.
Reading - I know. New Harry Potter!!
See re-decorating. No money. Otherwise, I have read almost every cozy murder mystery in the library. Amy
, write faster. I'll hock a kid.
Blogging - I read you guys every day. Really I do. Sometimes three times. And every day I think I should post more often. But 2 comments? Who's reading? Amy
and The Coach
. Hi, guys!
Planning for the fall classes - I don't even have the syllabus for the third grade yet. All I know for sure is that it's time we learned the Hebrew calendar. Other than that, I'm a sub
, no planning needed.
Exercise - All right. I do swim three days a week (that's all the pool is open) and I have started swimming 3/4 of a mile, but it's too hard (she whines) to do anything else.
Man, where did the joie de vivre
go? Where ever it is could you point it back here? Thanks.
