Another successful party!

DH and I spent part of today cleaning for our booze group. Tonight's theme was weirdly named drinks. Dinner was good--potluck lasagne, salad, and ice cream and fruit for dessert. It is really fun to have this group here but I am always glad wh... Read more
Fantasy? Yeah it was fun.

There is a local hotel (about an hour's drive) that has fantasy suites. I have always wanted to stay anywhere at a fantasy suite hotel. There are several within a day's travel of home. We finally did it last night. We stayed in the Arabian Nig... Read more
An Unplanned Day

Because I moved all the appointments I had scheduled this week just in case I got called for jury duty, when I got a pass I have all this time that is open. Really open. Today I bounced between paperwork, cleaning, and watching DVDs while knitt... Read more
Product testing

Today I did a product test for an Egg Perfect Egg Timer. It is a egg-shaped device that the top changes color for the degree of doneness you wish the egg--soft, medium, hard. It really works well. The soft was the perfect cook for DH. Althou... Read more
Monday--waiting for the phone call

All today, even though I accomplished a lot: sorted and dealt with a lot of papers on the desk, knitted on the afghan for over an hour, started the crockpot at 11am, dealt with returning the wrong battery and ordering the correct battery for my ... Read more
Glad that is over!

I do not mind having guests, but I am always glad when everyone is gone. The house goes back to normal. I left with one sister to show her the wonders of a resale store. She has a daughter (not the one I did the hat for) who is needing kitchen... Read more
Cleaning for guests
Saturday, February 23, 2013      0 comments

When I lived alone I tried to invite someone over for a meal on average of once a month. That way my whole place would be clean - all at the same time - once a month. After I married an introvert that kind of went by the wayside. But now ... Read more
Craft Crawl 2013!!
Thursday, February 21, 2013      3 comments

I had the most fun today! It was the first day of a local craft crawl--quilt shop, bead shop, fabric/yarn shop, paint your own ceramic shop, yarn shop, and Ben Franklin. I spent $$ so I got all six stamps. Because I was the first person on "th... Read more
So much for vacation
Wednesday, February 20, 2013      2 comments

Last night I received a number of emails from one of my professors. So today I will be going in to the office for about four hours. I was going in for a necessary meeting but this means that I need to go in earlier to clean up a mess. Not real... Read more
The dreaded meeting is over!
Tuesday, February 19, 2013      1 comments

Last summer I attended a conference and took a 2-day class spinning rare wools. Tonight was my presentation at the local spinners guild meeting about that class. I hate doing presentations. I have been told I am good at it and have a "teacher... Read more
My "vacation" is packed
Monday, February 18, 2013      0 comments

The only way I will survive my "vacation" is to make a list every morning (or the night before). Today's list has a number of errands starting at 10am. But everything should be finished by 12:30pm so I can concentrate on my presentation for Tu... Read more

Today was another not-home day. We left at approximately 8am and except for two hours right now it was go here, go there, go to the library, etc. I must admit, though, one of the 'go theres' was going to the farm to sit and knit. A few more r... Read more
First day of vacation!

I am away from the office until 4 March! There are meetings I have to attend on campus but they will be short and not take all the time away from my fun. A first time ever event is I have been called for jury duty the last week of vacation. I... Read more
Blowing off Knitting

DH and I walked for almost 50 minutes last night while the roast was cooking. After cleaning up, it was Netflix time. Hilarious! One night concert of "Not the Messiah" a Monty Python take of their movie "The Life of Brian". Great Music! Very f... Read more
Working on a Habit
Wednesday, February 13, 2013      2 comments

Walking every evening, either on the treadmill or like last night to the grocery store, many days seems like overkill. But I know that it is not. I have changed all my walking in the building at work. If I need to go to the main administrativ... Read more
