Do any of you ever feel like this creature?
This is the way I have felt this week. I have been going this direction, then that direction, and then whirling around back to the original way.
I suppose I have accomplished some things - but really nothing exciting unless you count the banana nut bread I made on Wednesday - they turned out great. Local grocery store was having a sale on bananas last Saturday - 25 cents per pound - so bought extra ones to make a double batch of bread. I made them in small mini loaves and some in cupcake style...froze most of them.
Oh yes, did go clothes shopping, which by the way is the least favorite thing I prefer to do when it comes to shopping. Leon was out of town on a fishing trip...did not have to be in hurry to leave town after I got my hair done...so went to a couple of stores and scored at both of them. Wound up with two jackets (casual type that can be worn with slacks or jeans) and one blouse. I have short arms and oft times the sleeves on jackets will reach the tip of my fingers or longer. This was true with one of the jackets - but I wanted it bad enough to put up with the sleeves re-do...cut off the excess...hem it up and sew the buttons back on.
Been sewing some on a new quilt - fabric is primarily a christmas design....nothing fancy ...Basically a 9 patch - not with even squares but still 9 pieces to a block. I know I will have it pieced before Christmas...but the quilting part - that is another story...perhaps by the 4th of July of 2010.
Rest of the time went into just the usual household stuff...you know all that line of work.
But that is what retirement is all about - too many days, weeks and years I spent working - so now I am entitled to some off days...ones that don't have to show a lot of accomplishments.
Main thing - I am HAPPY!
