A Little of This and That

Finally, I got up and walked again. Almost 2 miles and I was not that tired. It was about 10 degrees cooler this morning than it has been.

After I got home, I picked up the house a little bit. Sat outside and read for awhile.

I stained and varnished this rocking chair

and this cooler yesterday.

I added a coat of varnish and will probably add another tomorrow.

I sat and read some more. Then I worked for about an hour on school stuff. I may be moved from 3rd grade to a 5/6 split class next year.  So I can't do much planning until I find out for sure.

I worked some on the applique on the double wedding ring quilt. If I get after it tomorrow, I should be able to get the whole first side completed. (Believe me, I already know some changes I will make the next time I make one.)

I even got around to making some chocolate chip cookies. They came out oowey and gooey just like I like them. (I have no clue how to spell ooqey.) lol

I really have already fallen a little bit behind on my house cleaning. I should have cleaned the kitchen and main bathroom today and that didn't really happen. The kitchen just needs picked up a little and the floor mopped. The bathroom needs a thorough cleaning.

Well, there's always tomorrow.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. My house is a disaster zone right now, I can't seem to stop sewing long enough to clean it! I may have to call in help! LOL

  2. my house isn't as clean as it should be - I must admit to being more lax about it than I should be - it isn't dirty! just not as clean as I like it to be.

  3. I got behind while on vacation, but I've picked up a little here and there, so we CAN get through... LOL!! AND there is always tomorrow!!

    Vivian, did you say at one point that you are using the Marti Michell DWR templates?? I would like to mark and cut out the pieces to have as a hand piecing project. Of course, it's not like I don't already have several projects going.

  4. I saw your photos and remembered we need to re-stain the deck this summer. I'm always trying to stay ahead of the cleaning, get tougher in the summer though.
