spent most of the day on line and culling folders. was trying to sew but kept breaking open a cut on my forefinger. can't sew with band aid and had "new skin" on it. so quit, didn't want blood on fabric. will try again tomorrow.

going to bed and read and watch reruns on tv.

I save BUCKETS of money buying my canned and dry goods there..... not impressed with the produce tho.... usually a little more than the grocery store and in worse shape.... meat prices are a little better.... mostly on the chicken.
my 2 cents.

After morning chores and breakfast, went to the shop and worked about 4 hours. Restoring two oak table chairs that a doggie decided were his source of fiber. I think I can get them back to new.

Cut and fiber covered a mattress for a 100-year-old cradle for a customer. Turning out pretty well. It's one of those jobs that "creates" itself because of the design of the piece of furniture.

Delivered the restored/repaired "Curious George" stuffed toy. Customer was delighted. Said he looked like new. Poor baby, he was missing most of both arms, the bill on his cap was torn pretty badly and his left foot was not in great shape.

Thought I was done for when I had to replace both arms. Wondered how I was going to match the color of George's tee shirt sleeves to the original color of the his shirt.

Light bulb moment! I went to a local printing company that prints tee shirts. Matched the color to one of their sample colors and ordered a child's shirt to cut up to make George's sleeves. Worked/matched perfectly.

He belonged to the customer's son when his son was a child. His son, now 30, is expecting his first child in about 4 weeks. George is to be a special gift for the new baby. Now THAT'S a happy ending.

Came home after the shop and made some lunch. Did paperwork most of the afternoon.

Got a call from the "tomato fairy" and met with him at 6:30 P.m. to pick up another huge box of tomatoes. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow?

Sat on the porch for a while after feeding the outside kitties, then decided to sweep most of the walkway from the house to the street, about 200 feet. Enjoyed it and pulled little grass clumps from between the cracks. Looks better and will finish tomorrow.

Talked with my friend to see if her son made it back to Baghdad okay. She said he's still en route. Probably get there tomorrow.

Grilled some chicken for supper and am ready to prop myself up in bed with my James Patterson book.

well working 4 days went well. I may get a 5th shorter day, helping my boss with inventory and ordering. I'm not used to being gone so much anymore!
So, my days off will have to be more jam-packed.
Today I'm going to relax a bit tho.... ease into that.
So.
Make coffee
drink coffee
hang out w/ DH before he goes to bed
clean up after my 4 day absence!
figure out dinner and a grocery list
make dinner
eat dinner
maybe a walk
chill, maybe start crocheting my snowflakes for my christmas cards
Go to sleep
and probably a bunch of DC in all the middles!

The boys went back to school today :(

Today is grocery day, which is fun - I always like to see how much I've saved for the week (usually can do at least 60%)

Katie, wish I had a tomato fairy!!!
