We had our usual fairly quiet New Years Eve and then had a nice big turkey dinner New Years Day.
And now back at real life again! I have been very busy today, so I am just taking a short break from today's tasks for a quick post.
Took down the Christmas tree - finally!!
I also have some quilting goals that I need to get busy doing. I ordered a bunch of flannel Sock Monkey fabric from the Fat Quarter shop ( I just love that place!) I have decided I am going to make the new grandbaby a Sock Monkey quilt. I ordered the fabric from the Fat Quarter shop around the middle of December -- they had all the Sock Monkey fabric on 50% off.
So my goals for today were to wash all the Sock Monkey fabric -- which I did!
I have a pattern picked out for the quilt - so I will start on that this weekend.
I am just getting ready to put on a big pot of turkey soup -- we need to start eating a bit healthier and a bit earlier in the day. We have this tendency to eat supper about 7:30 at night - so that is our "New Year's Resolution"
I also used my "womanly charms" aka "nagging" to convince Jim to start on his big pile of file folders that need to be culled and shredded and thrown out!! And as you can see I was quite convincing -- LOL
He has paper in a file folder on a house the he did not buy in 1989!!! There are stacks and stacks of file folders piled up in our little office - that I really wanted to use - but can't!! So he has been shredding up a storm all day - and I have taken down the tree, washed my sock monkey fabric and now I am off to put the soup on to cook!!
But -- the computer is still not working for me - that is his tomorrow's task - and if he can't fix it tomorrow ---- it goes in to the shop. Meanwhile I am getting pretty good at typing on the laptop. I might just not go back to the desktop!!
