Better Today

Friday, August 19, 2011

Today was a better day.

I packed for our anniversary weekend getaway to Vegas. My mad packing skills ensured that we will have 1 carry-on suitcase and 1 backpack. Total. Between the two of us.

I got the laundry done. The blankets/throws could probably use a wash too, but I ran out of time today.

I found some batting in my stash that I can use for my Superman quilt. Saved about $40 just by checking there first! I also discovered some other batting that might be big enough for the "us" quilt I'm working on.

I used the Barnes & Noble gift card I got for my birthday a few months ago to buy some books I'd been wanting to read and a game that sounded fun on my NookColor. It was awesome.

I used the iTunes gift card I got for my birthday a few months ago to buy some workout music and a game my brother recommended for my phone. It was also awesome.

Yesterday got better too. I finished a quilt I'd been working on for awhile. I might give it to my husband's grandma for Christmas. I keep thinking of her whenever I look at it, so I think that's who it's meant for.

I cut out and sewed (mostly) some chef pants for my brother. The waist is a 42" so I know that part will fit, but I'm not sure about the rest. I need him to try them on. Then they can be hemmed, the elastic can be attached properly, the drawstring can be inserted, and I can add some cargo pockets. Then I can start on the next pair.

Tomorrow I'm going to visit Mom. And maybe vacuum.
