Well today started with a BIG pot of red sauce right after I walked the girls to school. It seems like it has been forever since I have had something simmering on the stove. I guess with all the warm weather we have had the past few weeks I kind of forget it is winter. I need to simmer soups and use my oven more before we start to really warm up.
After that I cleaned up the kitchen and sorted through some mail before the service man came to clean our heater. I was not sure how long he was going to be here so I decided to tackle my list of little things that I tend to put off.
One of them was sewing on girl scout badges. Can you see how my day was headed. I really felt like a 50's housewife when I called my husband at work to let him know I was about to add a big expense to our credit card. It is not like I needed his permission to fix a few parts on the heater, I was just letting him know, still I felt like June Cleaver.
Then, I got over it and decided to let my domestic side run wild. I finished a gift I had been working on. I can't show the full project yet but (sister-in-law Julie may be reading) but I'll write about it soon. So pleased with the results. I always forget how gratifying sewing can be.
I am happy to report that the day ended with dinner on the table, freshly scrubbed kids, homework completed and bedtime stories. Now I get to decide if I'm going to pick up my knitting...
or start this series I've heard so much about.
Either way ending with a blog post has transported me back to the 21st century.
