in my case, often go astray. I had such great plans for yesterday since I only had the kids part of the day. But, I DID NOTHING!!!!! I'm almost ashamed to admit it. I'm supposed to make the most of my free hours, but seem to be a little lacking in that department. Daughter Mary, who is a Champion of Justification, said it was a "play day" and that everyone needs one of them occasionally. I say, OK. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, because that's exactly what I did. I played. I played games on Facebook (which I do to keep my mind sharp), I read a couple of the magazines which are threatening to overtake the house, and I did some Disney Dreamin'. Rod and I have planned a trip in late November, and although it seems so far away right now, it will be here before you know it. I also proof-read two papers for Mary. It was always my job when the kids were in school, and now that Mary is in grad school I get to resume that position. Funny how much I've learned from proofreading their papers over the years.
So this morning, I figured I'd better try to redeem myself. I have accomplished quite a bit. I downloaded a new ringtone for my cell phone. Not a big deal for some, but for those of us who are "technically challenged", it's a step by step process. Now, when my phone rings, I hear the whistling from Disney's Steamboat Willie. And it makes me happy. I pressed two blocks - the background for Krissy's Henrietta Whiskers block and the Churn Dash block that I finished for the Brown Bag swap. After the more complicated block, I needed something simple and I love Churn Dash. And, I cut and marked a new block for the Brown Bag swap. I cut Bird of Paradise in magenta and dark purple. It's another block that's supposed to be paper pieced, but I cut the pieces and then added the seam allowances. Hopefully, it will turn out better than the Celtic Sunrise, which, by the way, I do intend to fix. And I've pinned the block pieces together so that I won't be confused when I start the stitching. And now, I'm off to "research" a recipe for dinner. The kids should be here around noon, and I'll be ready. Toodles!
