I slept most of the morning, on Saturday! I woke up, once, at 7:30 a.m., feeling wide awake; I debated whether to get up, but, I hadn't gone to sleep until after 3:30 a.m., so decided to sleep a little longer. Then, I slept till almost noon!
I spent the entire rest of the day sewing! I turned the TV (in the family room) around so I could watch it from the dining room while I sewed. Some people go away on quilting retreats; I had one at home! The sewing machine stalled a couple of times, as the thread got entangled in the bobbin, but I managed to get the thread cleared and the machine going again, each time.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in
- Being able to spend a day indulging in sewing
- A seemingly endless stash of scrap fabric
- A working sewing machine
- Fun TV programs to watch/listen to while I sewed
The only productive thing I did all day was clean out the litter box!
How was your Saturday?
I’m going to have a sewing day, preferably the day before my birthday. My daughter and I will work on our denim chenille quilt.ReplyDelete
That would be a lovely project to work on together! I've never made a denim quilt, but, I've always wanted to make one!Delete
Evita and I will work on the denim chenille quilt on July 16th, and my real birthday will be July 17th. We’ll be on the beach on the 17thDelete
Sounds like you've planned a lovely couple of days! Enjoy!Delete
If you were only going to chose one thing to do today besides sewing, I bet Dancer was glad that you chose to clean his litter box. :)ReplyDelete
LOL, I'm sure he was! :DDelete
Nothing wrong with sleeping late or spending the afternoon indulging yourself in a hobby. We all need days when we have nothing planned, to fill as we please. I spent yesterday at my sons as it is my grandson's birthday this week. We had a children's-party lunch (plus some delicious bruschetta for adults.ReplyDelete
I hope your grandson enjoyed his Batman birthday cake, even if you didn't make it! :)Delete
That sounds wonderful. Good for you. Yesterday was very enjoyable. I chatted with my brother on the phone, watched a couple of episodes on Amazon Prime of a t.v. series, and decluttered my pantry.ReplyDelete
It was a fun day. :) Sounds like you had a good day, too. Well done on decluttering the pantry!Delete
I somehow didn't get around to commenting yesterday, probably because my computer goes on "work-to-rule" and is unbearably slow at times. Good to know that your doctor visits went well, but the shot wasn't so much fun though.ReplyDelete
What a great idea to have a stay-at-home quilting retreat! I'm sure Dancer approved. I was catching up on grocery shopping yesterday since it is a long weekend and I don't like to shop on Sunday except in emergency. So today, Sunday, I went to mass in the morning and in the afternoon DH and I were both relaxing and reading on the deck. I had thought about baking cookies but decided to take it easy instead.
Thank you, Bushlady. I am very thankful the doctors' visits went well and I thoroughly enjoyed my quilting retreat! :DDelete
Good of you to get the groceries done on Saturday so you could relax on Sunday. Enjoy your long weekend and Canada Day. Maybe you can bake those cookies tomorrow, instead. :)
