Good morning happy Saturday!

I survived my first Whatnot sale! This is my sold pile of Christmas fabric

and this is what is left

Not too shabby. I think I made about $90 after fees. I only sold one thing of buttons and then I did sell a bunch of vintage trims. Everything went for my starting price though so that wasn't too exciting. I was just glad someone wanted to buy something lol. I have everything packed up and have to run at least one box to the post office. Unless I catch the mail man and he wants to take it. I think I'm going to try selling some the left over stuff on the Facebook group since I still have pictures of it. I scheduled another show for Wednesday but starting at 8 instead of 6. That was when more people showed up. Some people do two shows a day. Crazy.

My mom sent me this lol. They made it to their first stop last night. Hopefully they make it through the snowy areas today ok. 

Simon got spayed yesterday so now she is a lampshade. She is miserable and threw up twice this morning. Hopefully she doesn't keep doing that. Pretty sure she still is drugged up a bit by how she is acting. I feel bad for her. Hope she comes around soon. 

Today's plan? Not quite sure. Maybe starting with the FB group to try and sell some of this stuff and then go from there. Scott and I had talked about maybe going to the Good Guys car show but I don't think that is going to happen since he didn't bring it up again.

Good morning happy Friday! Woohoo it's Whatnot sale Friday! Hopefully I can figure out how to do it right lol. People are super nice on there though so I'm sure it will be good.

Yesterday I went and got a cake for Scott's mom and then took it over to the house. Scott wasn't there yet but his brother's truck was so I left again for a bit. Scott said they were out of  ice cream so I went and got some and he was there by the time I got back. Didn't really feel like talking to him without Scott there lol.

His mom was in good spirits and only rambled a bit about stuff that no one knew what she was talking about. Scott said she has lucid moments so I guess that was it. That was nice. She ate her cake and ice cream and then we went and got something to eat. In the past we'd bring food but she's so weird about food now. 

Melissa & Eric came too

Scott and I went to Chili's and had dinner and hung out. The kids went to Dairy Queen since they had planned that already. 

He had bought some windshield wipers for my car and finally remembered to put them on. That was nice of him. I used to go bug my dad when I needed new ones but now he lives in Arkansas so that's a bit of a drive ;)

This morning Simon is at her spay appointment. I hope it goes well and she's not in too much pain. Trevor must have went shopping or something since he didn't come back yet. 

I've been playing with my scraps for my current sewing project. 

I got the 2" squares sew into 4 and stowed them away for now. I think I have more in another box. I didn't feel like rooting around for it. 

Now I'm working on the 1 1/2" strips. Quite a few are going into keychain lengths since they are cute prints.

My mom flew to Oregon yesterday and is helping her friend drive her car and her dog back to CA. This morning it occurred to me that there is a lot of bad weather so hopefully they make it back ok. Her friend has a metal hip and rod in her leg and has cancer working it's way all around her body.  Hopefully they make it back here without any craziness. Her friend has a husky too!

Good morning happy Thursday! 

Today is my mother in laws 93rd birthday. Scott said she doesn't know it's her birthday even though he told her. I said then it will be a surprise when we bring her some cake lol. We'll go over tonight for a bit. 

Yesterday after work I went down to the levee watch center aka the musty board room down at the clubhouse. It took forever for the person I was relieving to leave and then I did literally nothing but sit at table and play with my buttons until 6 when my relief person came in. I won't be signing up for that anymore since it is DUMB lol. The idea is you keep the snacks and coffee going but these old ladies with nothing to keep them busy already did it all. Why they would need someone to be there the whole time is beyond me. 

Since the shift was only 2 hours instead of 4 I made the soup I had planned. Trevor fried some corn tortilla chips to go with it and that was actually the best part of the meal lol.

Other than that I worked on cleaning up my sewing room a bit and putting away all my fabric I had all over. Then I worked on my huge bin of scraps I had from doing the cross body bags and the last of the zip bags. They are cut all pretty now. Now to play with them or put them away...

I am all ready for my Whatnot sale tomorrow. I think I will schedule another one for the next week, maybe. Thinking of doing some animal print fabrics and then whatever doesn't sell this week we'll add to it.  I'm all about the themes, you know?  Maybe I'll do one for Wednesday. That will give me something to do for a few days.

Next week I have darts on Thursday and Saturday is a craft show! I'm scared to look at the weather! Okay I peeked and it says a little cloudy and a high of 63 and no rain! I hope it stays with the no rain.

Tomorrow Simon is getting spayed in the morning. I hope it all goes ok! I'm having to change over the dogs food because it appears they no longer make the one I used to buy them. Luckily I realized that before I was completely out. Their bellies are not totally happy with them being mixed. Hopefully eventually they will be ok with a new one.

Good morning happy Wednesday!

Look at our cute binky bear. She went to the Dr. yesterday. No ear infection, just teething. She has a bump on he back of her head and they said it is fine just a nodule. She got two shots while she was there. 

I had darts last night, here is our updated team. The gal on the left is the new player. I got 3 low tons and won the last game so that was exciting. I think our team won 5 out of 7 games. 

Tonight I am going to the levee watch command center aka the board room from 4-8. Duties include making sure there is coffee in the coffee pot lol.  Last night I had a can of soup for dinner, might end up doing the same for tonight.

Today's plan is to finish cleaning up my misc pieces of fabric all over my sewing room and finish putting my listings on Whatnot. I was missing a picture last night when I was working on it so have to pull one thing out again.

It is raining AGAIN this morning. Ugh. Go away already. So sick of the rain.

Good morning happy Tuesday! I have darts tonight so something to get out of the house for.

Yesterday I finished up the last 3 bags I had cut out.

I love this one, it started it's life as a pillow sham. I bought it when I did my Goodwill shop after my Davis training.

Tina helping me sew

When I was done with that I worked on some more listings for my whatnot auction on Friday. I emptied out 2 shoe box tubs of Christmas fabric from the book shelf, ironed, measured, took pictures and put in my notebook. Then I went to start uploading them to the site and a bunch of pictures are missing. DOH! So have to go back and take some pictures that I thought I had taken but I guess not. 

I had these in with my Christmas fabrics, I think I am going to make them Giveaways. The bunny I dated 2000. Back when I did a lot of cross stitch. Now I'd have to use a magnifying glass I think. 

This one was a stamped one I believe. It's pulls into the center a bit but ironed out pretty good.

We had a fancy dinner last night. It was good! I'm not a huge hot dog fan but they hit the spot every so often.

Trevor has a lunch date so I'll get the house to myself for a little bit today. It's raining outside again. I'm so over rain.

Good morning happy Monday. As happy as a Monday can be eh?
My dart partner Lana just called and said something happened at the bar with one of our team mates and now she will not be playing so we have to get someone to take her place. Fun. Wonder what the rumor mill will dig up on that one. 

Yesterday I worked on my whatnot auction stuff a bit more and sewed up one more bag. I have 3 more to sew up in my ready to sew pile.  I want to get one of those ham ironing things to help iron the edges. Next time I go to Manteca I'll stop in Joanns and see if they have one. Might be faster to just order one off Amazon though. 

After I was done with my bag I cleaned up the living room and the kitchen. It is amazing how much stuff ends up on the kitchen table in a week. Definitely a dumping grounds. 

Look at Tubby she is so funny. She climbs in the bouncer chair all by herself. 

The kids got here around 2:30. Rosie is almost crawling. She'll probably be zooming by next weekend. She will go about one crawl step and then lay down. She will roll if she wants to get somewhere faster lol. Look at her nanny dogs. They take their job seriously!

Trevor was getting her to crawl to the ball.

She took a nap and woke up fussy and rubbing her ears so hopefully she doesn't have an ear infection. She stopped after a bit but she seemed like they were bothering her. 

I made this for dinner thinking Daniel would like it but he didn't even touch it. He buried it with his top ramen noodles from earlier. I just used ground beef so it wouldn't be too spicy for him. Oh well we all ate it besides him lol.

Jess ran to the store after work so they got picked up around 10. I cleaned up the toys and went to bed lol.

Today is staff meeting day for work. One down one to go in 5 minutes. They ae so blah since I'm just this annoying background girl now that no one cares about. I miss being important. Oh well so is life.

Good morning happy Sunday! Why does the weekend have to go so fast? 

Yesterday we went to my niece and nephew's 9th birthday! So crazy they are 9 already. There wasn't very many people there so I am glad we went. My other brother had company so wasn't able to go I guess. 

Big sister Ava, Emma & Vincent

We took Daniel with us. Sadly there weren't any little kids to play with but Vincent & Emma played with him a bit. 

They both got a skateboard for their birthday, I hope that doesn't lead to broken bones lol

Crashed out on the way home

We checked out the river real quick, still not up on the levee so that is good. 

Then we went to the St Patty's party. Yum! Gave half that cabbage to my friend Traci lol

I look like crap. What's up with my bangs? I just trimmed them too but they still look too long. I need to go get my hair cut I think. Scott got his cut yesterday and they trimmed his eyebrows too lol.

My friends Traci and Ginny

Little Miss Rosie. Her mom sent me these pictures, so cute. She is 9 months old now.

The kids will be coming over later while their mom goes to work so I have a little bit of time before I have to clean the house lol. 

I am working on getting fabrics ready for my whatnot sale on Friday. I have 20 Christmas fabrics & panels ready to go. That was one bin's worth on my shelf.  Just need to finish adding those to the site for a preview. Trying to decide what else to add to it. 

Ok going to work on that some more!

Good morning happy Saturday!

Scott and I had a grocery shopping date last night. We went to Applebees and had a green drink first. That was fun lol. I picked him up and dropped him off at his mom's house. He is so over being there. 

Jess got the kids in their green outfits yesterday. 

In the morning

later in the day she said he was being grouchy lol

love this one


My old boss said she saw this and thought of me. I always doodle during meetings just like this lol. She said I could have a side job of teaching people how to do it. Jessica said I don't need anymore side hustles ;) If you read it it says how it helps you pay attention. See I'm not crazy haha.

Yesterday's mail. Whoopsie haha. Great fabrics though. Finally got the Lisa Frank ones I was excited about.

I got 2 more bags done yesterday. I have 4 left to sew in my cut out pile. Love this one!

and this one too!

I sold one of the ones I posted yesterday.  The flower one. So that is exciting :) Nothing better than making something from fabric you've had forever and someone wanting it.

I had to take Rusty to vet to get his stitches out. He was doing so good but now he's a little bit sore I think. He was finally getting to where he didn't leave any messes when he was laying down but they "cleaned things up" and now he's got a few little bloody spots again. When we were done we left and then a couple hours later they called and said I didn't pay. I was like oh no one said I had to pay lol. I thought it was part of my previous $600 since it was a follow up. Oh well paid over the phone another $75 sheesh.  After we left the vet I got lunch for Trevor and I and a cheeseburger for Rusty. He loved it on the way home and didn't want to get out of the car when we got there. So funny! I guess I'll have to take him for more rides.

Today we have the twins 9th birthday! Crazy they are that old already. Neither one cares one bit about me but we are going to the party anyways. I am going to bring Daniel with us. Then tonight we have the St. Patty's dinner at the clubhouse. I have about 2 more hours of messing around then I have to take a shower and get ready. I think I am going to work on getting some stuff ready for my whatnot sale next Friday for a bit.
