Sat - Hair App't 9:00

Busy at work this week, yay!  There's no school on Monday, so I need to go in to prep, but that's it.  I've cancelled all my physical therapy, and I think I won't reschedule.  It costs almost $300 per visit, and although I only pay $40 of it, I don't feel I'm getting any benefit I couldn't get by doing the exercises and TENS stimulation here.  I know I have not achieved $3000 worth of benefit.  I have the stuff, and I'll make the time.

I was thinking I should go out and plow the ice and snow off the driveway, but it's already 36º and there's rain in the forecast.  I think I'll let it take care of itself.  I fixed the dryer (again!) yesterday so there's a mountain of folding and putting away, and it's Sunday, so groceries beckon.  I like food shopping, so it's all good.  This afternoon I'll finish those stumps while dinner cooks itself.

Stumping


 This is how I'm proceeding - with pieces kinda/sorta cut to size to maximize scraps and minimize waste.  To the right of the bin of "stumps" is a bin of 3ish inch background squares.  I have a stack of patterns and will make all the stump sections, then all the tree sections, then connect and trim, then assemble into the alternate 4-Tree blocks.  Then repeat with the chains, made out of strips and 2" squares.  Onward!

Weekend Update

Oh, I am in a FOUL mood.  7 am and there is electronic dance music pounding in my house right now, I HATE it, and my headphones aren't charged so I can't NOT listen to it.
And I didn't sleep well, which never helps.  Yesterday I did battle with both the icy-snow covered driveway and the fuse at the deepest depths of the dryer.  I eventually overcame both struggles, but neither was easy and I went to bed exhausted and frustrated at having to do all this shit myself.  Today is dishes and groceries and laundry, but I'm carving out some time to sew as well.  Nothing at  all happened with Braiden's quilt last week, and with as much piecing as this one has, I do not have the luxury of leisure.  Not yet anyway.

First, breakfast.  Coffee's made, there's bread for toast.  The washer's already going, the dishwasher is loaded.  I need to make a small grocery list and get this day started.  It's cold, -3º right now, but it'll warm up.  The sky is blue, the sun is shining.  There are crows walking on the snow banks. 😀

365 in 365 Jan 13

I've got too much stuff!  So in addition to the stop-buying-stuff edict, I'm getting rid of things.  Every day something goes, every Saturday I'll create a collage.  Then, unless someone waves their hand furiously in the air, it goes in the recycling, the donate basket, or the trash.  I guess potentially there will be a yard sale option, but ugh, I hate having yard sales.  We'll see.

Weekend Update

Ooooh, it's cold.  But I'll take -22º over 80º any day.  You can always put on more clothes, right?

Nothing new on that Next 4 list.   Plodding along.  I have started, repeatedly, a new hat with some found yarn.  Repeatedly, because it's knitted top down, and it's been too big the last 4 times I've started.  I think I've got it now, though, but who knows?  It's meditative, all that tearing out and redoing.  Call me Sisyphus.
