Good morning, happy last day of November! Hard to believe this year is almost over.

Yesterday I spent most of the day with my little buddy. Him and his mom have a cold. I went over to help out a bit and then brought him back over to my house so she could take a nap. 

When I brought him back to the house he fell asleep right away. He woke up and I was holding him and he fell asleep again. So he got a pretty good nap in.

I got an email with a pizza coupon so Trevor went and got some and that is what we had for dinner. The little guy hadn't wanted to eat all day but scarfed down some pizza!

Before and after he was here I started on some more of my use it up fabric sewing. I've started doing at least one animal theme, one character and now one sports.

This time we've got some elephants, Hello Kitty, an Elvis, Nightmare before Christmas, Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes, and some Raiders and 49ers. Most of these were small pieces but I was able to get a few masks out of them. Mostly kids since I'm doing that craft show at the school. People are always wanting the kids once since they have to wear them to school here.

I got an email this morning talking about the new telework agreement. Sigh. It will be back to work in the office soon. Looks like they are saying we would have to go in two days a week so that is not too bad if that is the case. It is so nice staying home and just going in occasionally. The only thing I really ever need to go in for is letters and filing. If only they went all digital that would all be eliminated. 

Today Jess has a dr appointment and has to work so I will have the little guy for awhile. If she doesn't call out of work that is. Hopefully she is feeling better today.

I saw this last night and thought it was funny!

Snookie's stomach is making so much noise I just heard it from across the room. So weird how it does that. She's fine 90% of the time.

Ok have to take the dogs out and that requires pants! Have a good day!

Good morning, it's Monday again! I didn't go into the office today, mostly because I forgot to "book" the room I work in but also because I got the really important stuff done already.  Just need to do some file maintenance when I go back in.

I spent the whole weekend in my sewing room, it was nice!

I decided to make coasters with the small Christmas scraps I had left. I cut 5 1/2" squares, then cut 1 1/2" and 1 1/4" and 1" strips of what was left.

The ones on the right are strip pieced, they are my favorite of course haha. Although that horse one is really cute. I think I'll just put them in a basket at the craft show for $1 each

I still have a big piece I made by sewing 2" strips together that I'm not sure what I want to do with. I think I might just cut that up for coasters too. Cut, sew, cut haha. Probably should have had a better plan.

I have all this stuff  I've sewn to put away in my inventory boxes. Debating on putting some on Etsy first or not.

The mess after! There is a trash can under there. I did take the trash out before I started too. Time to clean up again.

Thought this was a little funny ;)

I watched 2 more shows on Hulu, I tried a comedy but it was too dumb. Back to documentaries. This one Enemies of the State was interesting.

I enjoyed this one, Red Dog.

Trevor is cooking the turkey he got from work. All the other left overs are gone except for the dry stuffing. I think we even killed the appetizers that were left. Going to have to use the turkey in something to use it up I think! Might just pop it in the freezer for later. We had Chinese food last night.

Good morning happy Sunday!

Already did a little rant about cleaning shit up when you're sitting in view of it. Everyone is blind to mess but me apparently.

Also had to make my own coffee two days in a row, what the hell lol. I'm not spoiled with much but it is nice to be half awake and just pour a cup of coffee in the morning ;)

Spent all day in the sewing room again yesterday. Finished up the stuff I had cut out. 

Then I started playing with some small Christmas fabrics and I'm still messing around with those.  Not sure what the end product is yet haha.

I ended up watching a bunch of movies on Hulu yesterday. 

I've seen this before but had forgotten until I started watching it.

This was cute, an older movie with boobs in it!?!?! lol

This movie was sad I wish it would have went a bit farther than the ending

Another sad but suspenseful one, working in AG we hear of accidents every so often. Not too far from where I live a young woman ended up in the canal on her tractor. Her poor father couldn't get her out and she died. Super sad.

I should probably look for some comedies today, too many deep ones yesterday!

I went and stayed at Jessica's for about an hour last night while she ran Daniel's sister home. She had babysat for her while they were working but had to go to work in the morning. I mostly just slept on the couch haha.

No plans for today other than eating something besides turkey! We pretty much finished off the Thanksgiving meal stuff and I've had Thanksgiving dinner about 5 times haha. I'm good til next year I think!

Good morning happy Saturday! Love these long weekends :)

Yesterday I spent all day sewing and working my way through the Thanksgiving leftovers.!

I got these finished

I just have a small pile left of stuff all pinned and ready to sew.

While I was sewing I watch the documentary Dig Deeper The Disappearance of Birgit Meier on Netflix. It is dubbed but ok for watching while sewing. It's amazing how many disgusting evil people there are in the world.  People always say times are bad now but we just didn't know about  everything in two seconds before.

After that I went a bit lighter and finished watching the British Baking Show. They never pick the person I think they are going to pick. Then they give them a dumb cake plate. Like how about a cake plate with a money cake. 

Now to find something to watch today!  Time for some coffee and banana bread! I'm sure I gained back that 3 pounds I keep losing and gaining over and over again ;)

Good morning happy Black Friday! I am doing no shopping today haha. I did take the day off though. Of course now that I have decided not to do the big black Friday event that I used to do because the weather was always horrible it is nice and sunny outside.

I was going to post yesterday but then I got side tracked and forgot! Here is all the masks I finally finished on Wednesday.

Thursday morning Scott was like well I guess I'll go out and clean up the yard. I was like why are you going to do that, no one is going to be out there. Vacuuming would be more helpful. 


So that was nice. We weren't eating until 5:30 so I actually got kind of bored lol. The house was pretty much cleaned and it was just my kids coming over so no need to be extra.

Here's my little buddy having some appetizers

He is just so cute and I can't believe this time next year we'll have another one to love on!

Melissa's boyfriend spent the day hanging out with his dad so she came solo this year. Here is the spread! Jess made the mac & cheese since Daniel's family usually has that. I messed up the sweet potato pie by not warming it up enough first before putting it under the broiler for the marshmallows. Oh well more for me later haha.

I did the mashed potatoes while I was bored and put them in the crock pot, worked out good. That crock pot is very vintage now, we got it when we got married almost 30 years ago.

My plate, ate it all, died later haha

The crew minus me

A little family picture for Jess

Everyone was gone before 9. I had started cleaning up then took a little break to lay on the couch for a bit and had a Lucy cat napping with me.

The kids left the playpen and I was like the cats will probably get in there.
Didn't take long lol. Tina's like thanks for the new bed!

I boiled up the bones and the scraps and made some stock? broth? Can never remember which one it is lol to use later. Used up all my jars. 

and made myself finish cleaning before I went to bed because it is nice to wake up to a clean kitchen.

I just had some banana bread I made Wednesday to go with my coffee. Scott is off today also (that's not a usual thing so his boss must have been feeling nice lol). No plans today but to do some sewing. I got these little Marilyn Monroe coin purses in the works! I will probably get my little pile of stuff all ready to sew at cone though. I have some more zip bags and keychains partially cut out. Trying to work my way through some of this fabric stash!

I have sold several things on Etsy this week so that is nice!  I'm a little concerned about the school craft show I signed up for. It is in two weeks and I haven't heard a thing from the person organizing it. My friend that works at the school was going to check up on it for me. I'll remind her next week. 

Ok that's my 100 pictures for the day ;)

Good morning happy Turkey Eve!

Yesterday my friend Traci brought over this cat post scratcher that she was getting rid of. We traded for a coin purse I made. I think I got the better deal lol. Her cat didn't use it at all. Mine are like pole dancers on it haha.

Went to Costco and Winco yesterday. Got all my stuff! Stores were packed and gave me anxiety but I got it done. Well mostly Costco gave me anxiety. 

I got some of these flat bread pizzas for dinner. It was really good! Hoping there is still one left in the fridge for lunch lol.

I was a total sloth when I got home and just laid on my bed for the rest of the night. Today I need to clean! We are eating dinner at like 5:30 tomorrow so I'll have plenty of time to cook everything then. I'm not making any pies so nothing else really needs to go into the oven til the turkey comes out. I guess I could make the sweet potato pie today if I get ambitious. 

The baby is coming over later while his mom and dad are working so he will keep me busy! I should probably start doing some laundry since I have a big pile going.

Just a few work things to do this morning and we get off two hours early so that is nice!

Good afternoon! Anyone want to go to the grocery store for me? I am going to go pretty soon.

This guy has been extra clingy and annoying today. Seems to be the way after I've went into work for a day. He's finally settled down now. Snookie has icky belly today, it is making so much noise. Need to give her a GasX that seems to help when she has that issue.

My friend made her Christmas cards with some green buttons (into a wreath) and she was like would you have had these buttons on hand? I was like hmmm MAYBE..

I also have a tin of buttons that aren't sorted at all. I went a little overboard collecting when I was making so many mug cozies. Some day I will sell some of them off to lighten my stash.

Got all my bedding washed last night. This guy was all comfy when I was putting the last two blankets on the bed, didn't bother to move when I put them on.

What are you having to eat on Thanksgiving? Making my list

Appetizers-deviled eggs, salami with cream cheese and peppers and a veggie tray
Dinner-turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, rolls, gravy, cranberry sauce, maybe a bagged salad to act like we're being healthy?
Dessert, pumpkin pie, peanut butter pie and probably a coconut cream if I can find a decent one

I forgot to put my work computer on the dock last night and apparently the battery ran down all the way. Since then it will not charge on the dock and I have to keep plugging it in with the actual charger (I've never had to do that in almost 2 years). It is uber annoying since then I'm stuck with the tiny screen instead of two big ones. Hopefully it will charge up all the way and then somehow start renewing itself on the dock again. We shall see.

We already got the email that we get off 2 hours early tomorrow. So nice that they do that again. 

I didn't do anything productive last night, maybe I'll finish up the masks tonight?

Hello happy it's almost over Monday!

I went into work today so that kept me busy all day. I finally got all the payments I've done since like March printed out and filed. Filed about 50 files into the completed contracts area. Pulled out a ton of really old contracts that are old enough to shred most of now and did a trash bag full of that and then saved the rest on my old desk to work on later. I'm exhausted! 

Of course I didn't go to the store afterwards. Oh and I forgot my work keys today so that was fun. Luckily someone was coming in the building when I was so I got in (don't even know who she is must be a new employee for the other department. For lunch one of my coworkers was there and I was like hey if I go run and get some thing can I call you to open the back door? Sure sure. I call and it goes to her voicemail. TWICE. Knocked on the window of the office she was in but the blinds were down. Then went back to the door and just missed that girl from earlier so knocked on the door and someone else opened it. That was annoying. I now have my work keys back on my keychain. 

I'm thinking maybe I should take Wednesday off to clean the house a bit. Maybe.. I think I might be babysitting a bit that day too.

Yesterday I almost got all the masks done. Just adding elastic and have to sew it together and then into place. I had to stop for the little guy.

He had fun playing with the toys

He had some dinner and then fell asleep not too long after. Little baby burrito on the couch. Scott was sitting in his chair not too far away and I put pillows on the floor. Usually he doesn't roll but he rolled right off the couch onto the pillows and bumped into the chair lol. He was fine! Then he laid down on my bed with me and went back to sleep.

This morning I woke up to my bed being wet. At first I thought it was from Scott taking the dogs out but then I was like that's a bit too much wet. Someone that wasn't me peed on the end of the bed. I think it was Rusty, he is really jealous of the baby. Good thing I have a water proof cover on my bed (plus an extra one under it). Sadly I have to wash all my bedding AGAIN (just washed it Friday). I should have got it started this morning but I didn't so now I have the sleeping bag I never got in the dryer rewashing in the washer first, then I'll start the bed. Good thing I can do it in two washes. Damn animals.

Trevor was home alone today while I was working and so far I can tell he made a cookie kit my mom got for Halloween. I'm not sure what else he made but there is a shit ton of dishes. Aye. When the kid moves out I might not have to wash dishes for like a week. 

Oh the other fun thing at work today. The girl who is in charge right now came in and was like we should be able to come back to the office now the numbers aren't that high. I'm like WHY? Ugh I no wanna go back to work every day. I wouldn't mind like 1/2 the time at work 1/2 at home. If we had people alternating who was in the office (kind of like we do now already but with the door actually being open) I think that would be fine.

The only time I've been sick in the last year and a half plus is when we got Covid. Usually I'm sick several times a year. It's been nice being home in our little bubble. Plus the animals are going to be so sad.  Too bad we can't take our dogs to work haha.

Ok time to feed the kitties dinner. I was bad and got a milk shake on the way home so I'm not even hungry. No idea what's for dinner, probably don't even need to eat!

Good morning happy Sunday! 

I finished up these bags and keychains yesterday morning.

I was going through my stuff trying to decide what to make next and doing a little cleaning up and decided on some Christmas masks and some more Pokémon since I sold most of the kids ones I had made already. Also have some Mario's. I cut out some other stuff for bags & keychains but just working on the masks so far. It is kind of fun doing a theme set.

I finished watching that season of Survivor and then it automatically started another one that I was like I think I've watched this before? But couldn't remember who won so just kept watching it. Still working on that one although I Googled one of the players so now I know who wins again darn it.

It is just so interesting watching people's personalities come out.

We went to Jessica's work and had dinner last night. It's like a little dive bar and restaurant. I had a Western burger it was so good and I was stuffed for the rest of the night.  The place was pretty dead when we were there. She said it is dead if there is a fight on and a new bar opened somewhere in town too.

Scott is making breakfast. I slept all night again and slept in this morning. Too bad I have to get up at early time tomorrow and go into work. I need to make my list tonight of stuff for Thanksgiving and go to the store for it tomorrow. I don't want to do be doing that on Wednesday lol. 

We are going to watch the little one while the kids work this evening so that will be busy time :) They came over for a few minutes yesterday and he is just so stinking cute.

Today is my high school bestie and maid of honor's birthday. Can't believe we're turning 48. Sheesh almost to 50 already.  My birthday is in a couple months but we're making the turn! We sure had some fun doing stupid shit when we were kids haha.
