the wanderings my mind takes

Day 4 of 6


Yesterday, I did manage to get something done. I had to pull myself away from the computer and focus before it happened, though.

What really got me inspired was work calling! I had bread in the maker, ice cream prepping in the food processor, laundry in both dryer and washer. The phone rings. They had 6 people call off. Now usually, I jump at the chance to pick up extra hours. But, there was 2 hours left on the breadmaker and the ice cream still had to go in the maker. Plus, I had let younger son take my car! I couldn’t go.

The guilt of not going made me activate. Not only did I finish the above, but I finished a quilt top and started quilting it. I made mashed potatoes, fried chicken and asparagus for dinner. Then I rewarded myself with old episodes of Elementary and playing cards on the puter.

Today, on the other hand, has thus far been a bust. I slept in till 9:30. Rewatched the new Star Wars trailers and dug out my dvds for the old ones. Decided to be brave and wash my winter coat (so it will snow as soon as I put it away, watch and see!), along with the once clean but the cat slept on them sheets (my fault for leaving them out in the open 😦 .

My back is knotted from hunching over the sewing machine. I’m not sure if I want to do much sewing today. No matter where I adjust the seat to, I still hunch when sewing. Old habits, I guess. Maybe, I’ll rethink my sewing table. My husband made it years ago from a hotel’s thrown out dresser and counter. It has these huge drawers and I can cut right there where I sit, but the level is not adjustable and you can’t move the thing at all. It is so heavy that it has never been moved since he put it there. I think I want to cut out a section and make it adjustable for the sewing machine. Then I can move the machine up or down. That might not help so much with the back, but it would be great to have the sewing flush with the table.

A trip to Lowes is in our future! 🙂  Besides, he needs to get another peach tree, ours has bores or blight or something. I told him to rip it out before it roots any deeper (last year, I told him last year!!! ) It is still young, so the roots shouldn’t be too deep yet. I got one harvest and made jam before it was struck.

Hmm, I’m procrastinating. So much to do and no ambition. Maybe I’ll watch Star Wars all day! 😉
