Sure, rub it in. Thirty degrees here. You left just in time. And Monday it is supposed to rain all day. Now I have to get dressed and run to the store. And to think you are missing out on all this joyous weather.

Imagination/visualisation can be a very effective and powerful tool I find.....we can all go to our "happy" place!

Finally a day off. Not doing much of anything today, but relaxing. Swam this morning & taking it easy today.

Well said creative!

'Nuther gloomy day today, except it began this way unlike yesterday that began a bit sunny.

This is the perfect day to escape to my studio with Sally and Bella, a good audio book and a project. Sally and Bella await. I've already stated an audio book by one of my favorite authors and my project, which I began yesterday, is on the cutting table ready to be completed.

A few weeks ago my best friend gave me quite a few large scraps of burgundy ultrasuede. I needed a new wallet, so I made one right away and, yesterday, I nearly finished a credit card wallet to match. Gee, I could even make a checkbook holder, too. The one I'm using is falling apart.

I even think there'll be enough of the ultrasuede to make a small cosmetic bag for my purse. By the time I finish, my handbag will be so coordinated I won't recognize it.

Just got done going through all of my spices. I put all of the baking ones on the bottom of a double shelf turntable and all of the cooking ones on top. And I put them in alphabetical order, much easier to find.

Just finished updating my health insurance for next year!

I have been working on this since Saturday and tonight I had the luck of finding a CSR that knows how to do the job! She did in 10 minutes what I have spent at least 8 hours, including hold time, trying to do!

I miss sitting across the desk from people when I'm doing business, progress makes me sad!

What are you doing?

Worked on putting up shades in the spare bedroom. One works splendidly, hardware and all. I think the other shade might be too big for the window. I'm debating whether to send it back or just play around with it until it fits. The shades are ones where you can rip the plastic off the side and squish the rod in until it fits the window hardware. Just hoping it can rip and squish enough to fit the smaller window.

DH came back from a road trip with a dozen farm fresh eggs, 3 turnips, two beets, and some carrots, from a friend who has chickens and gets other stuff from a co-op. I'm really excited about the turnips!

Since I am on a night schedule, I caught up on my daytime shows then started making many different recipes. Cookies and 2 different slider recipes. I also gave my 8 week old yorkie mix her 2nd bath ever. Now, finished with all my cooking projects for the day I am waiting on my S/O to get home from work and probably have to make him some mac & chz grilled cheese sammies when he gets home...
