My new year is looking up!
I got a very nice order last night. Can’t wait to share pictures when it’s finished but for now all I can say is… owl. Lots of soap making and sewing to be done!
Supplies and materials have been ordered. Now to finish my other projects before it all gets here!
At about midnight last night decided to lookup the benefits and/or hazards of gargling with hydrogen peroxide. My throat has hurt for about a week… I’m trying home remedies before I break down and go to the doctor. Anyways, it says it is safe to do right on the bottle! So I tried it… holy foaming action Batman! It didn’t help much but I’m hopeful. I probably should just go to the doctor…
I’m kind of working in slow motion right now. I have a million ideas I want to implement just need to find my groove.
Time to make the broccoli cheese soup! Cya tomorrow!

Starting 2011... now!

The first week of 2011 blew chunks, literally. My babies had a stomach bug. My week was all about nasty substances, holding hair back, giving baths, washing sheets and blankets, disinfecting surfaces and desperately trying to coax wee ones to eat and drink.
Just when I thought my nightmare was over my sweet Murphy Mae took a turn for the worse. She went to heaven yesterday. It was a very, very sad day.
I am very happy to forget any of it ever happened.

I’ve decided my New Year starts today.
I have many plans, projects, goals and ideas for 2011. None of which involved the above… but some of which I’ll list below in no particular order.
New Soap
A Quilt-Along
Garage Sale (have never had one)
Weight Loss
Keeping a Schedule
Sewing, Sewing, Sewing
Date Nights
Family Outings
And more….

Stay tuned for updates on those. ;)

This week’s menu:
Sunday- smoked sausage, potato, pepper, onion and green bean skillet
Monday- broccoli cheese soup and biscuits
Tuesday- spaghetti with meatballs and garlic bread
Wednesday- tilapia, rice and salad
Thursday- biscuits, gravy and hashbrowns
Friday- ffy (fend for yourself)
Saturday- red beans, rice and sausage

This week I’m thankful that last week is over. Amen.
