Good morning happy Saturday! 
Yesterday I made some fruit salad and sang the Wiggles song the whole time. 
I love fruit salad and cottage cheese. I had some for breakfast and a snack last night.

I mostly just sewed wine totes yesterday. 9 to go!

I went and picked up my meds and amazingly there was no line in the drive through and they had them all ready to go. A miracle! So that's taken care of for a bit. I just needed to make sure I'd have them for when we go on our trip. Next Saturday we will be leaving woohoooooo.

So this week will be getting laundry all caught up so I can pack and all that. I told Scott we need to take more food stuff with us this time like stuff for sandwiches. Just something a little more substantial than crackers and the like. 

It was supposed to be under 100 today but they changed it this morning. No 90's for us! I'm looking forward to not waking up sweaty in the middle of the night. 

I never did any outside clean up yesterday. It was so hot I was like eh lol. Gotta start early for that. Still need to clean up the weed pile I made too.

Good morning happy FriYeah! 
Feels like this week went fast minus being so hot.

I got up early this morning and moved to the couch. The ac was completely off. Sheesh. Glad someone wasn't hot. Nothing like laying like a  star fish trying not to have any of your skin touch itself because you're sweating to death.

The twins were play fighting this morning. Hardly ever see them interact with each other. None of my cats are buddies with each other. Kind of weird. 

Yesterday I got the table outside the back door cleared off (still have to CLEAN it) and found all this change. I swear my husband just rains change. Most was in a plastic bag and a Burger King cup.

I made my beautiful salads yesterday. 

Left them on the counter so the meat could cool off a bit more before I closed them up. Took my bowl in the other room and came back to one salad on the floor and the rest missing most of the chicken and bacon. Simon had herself a snack :( Apparently she's not big on hard boiled eggs and lettuce.

Bad dog cooling off

I got all these wine totes done yesterday. 15 to go!

Took a shower and went to darts. This guy on the other team must be almost completely deaf. We had a whole conversation with him sitting right there and he apparently didn't hear any of it lol. We were waiting for someone to show up from his team and so we started with game 2. I turned to him when it was his turn and was like are you playing today and he says huh? lol

We lost 5 out of 7 games. Booo but I did close out the last game so technically I won that one. 

Hung out and chatted with my friends Sheryl and Shirley.

What's my clean up thing for today? I think I need to put away the 2 folding chairs on the front porch and then there are some bucks/dead plants by the garage that need to be delt with. I think that will do it. It's supposed to be 112 today. Surprisingly Simon is still outside for her morning sunshine. I don't think she'll be out there much longer!

Good morning happy Thursday! 
I have darts today so I'll be showering at some point ;)

The neighbor came and picked up the recycling so that feels great to get that out of here. 

Trevor and I ate the calzone I bought from the grocery store deli area for lunch yesterday. So yummy. 

For dinner I put the pork roast I bought in the crock pot and then made tacos with it. They turned out pretty good.

Simon and I went for a short walk last night. I started having some pain in my back and then some tooting and then OMG I had to go poo so had to hustle it back to the house and pray no one was in the bathroom haha. TG I just barely made it.  It was still super hot too so I was already planning on a shorter walk but not quite that short. 

Dear God please let this be the last of the 111's. I looked up the first stop on our vacation (not going til the 20th) and it is in the 60's there during the day. Woohoooo. Might have to pack a hoodie. 

After doing a few things in the sewing room I finally decided my next project would be to finish up these wine bags. I had pulled them out of my to finish later box awhile ago so they've been hanging out on my desk. I had to go through my hoard pile to find my interfacing but I was successful!

There were 25 cut out and ready to go. I cut the interfacing, ironed and pinned for the 1st step and got busy.

Here's some crappy pictures of the first 4 I got done.

I'm sure I'll be sick of them again by the time I'm done but they will be pretty stocked up for my craft booth haha. Once I do that again. I have 2 shows set up for October and November. I should try harder to find some others but it's hard when I babysit on Sundays. 

Just made this sale on eBay. Every time I tell myself I should just stop thrifting and reselling stuff haha. I think I paid $1 for these. SCORE!  I have been putting all the patterns on sale for like 70% off in my eBay store trying to get rid of them and had 2 people ask about combining shipping this morning. Someone just purchased a few. 

Trying to do a mini project around the house every day to clean shit up. I think today's will be to clean off the table out the back door that Scott and Trevor have been using to house misc crap. Most of which needs to go in the trash I think! Need to do that soon before it gets too hot outside.

Good morning happy Wednesday! I survived a day at the office and then went grocery shopping. Now I'm back to the compound (joke we call our neighborhood) for a bit lol.

Simon wanted to go for a walk last night and there was a nice breeze so we went.

It's kind of surprising how low the river is when we had so much snow this winter. 

These wildflowers (wild weeds?) are growing all over right now. They are kind of pretty. I took a picture to see if my friend knew what they were but not sure if it's the one she came up with or not. I'll have to look at them closer.

I've been buying these salads and keep telling myself that they are so simple I can just make them myself. I bought the stuff to make them yesterday. Now to put them together. I have a bunch of the containers saved too. 

This morning I got the sprinkler put on the front yard (bought a new end for the hose at Home Depot yesterday on my lunch) and then got all the recycling rounded up to give to a neighbor. My kids won't ever take it and it's taking over the back yard. I need to find somewhere to take it when I just have a few bags so it doesn't pile up so much. Go me for getting that done it was a mess. 

Another scorcher today. Snookie and I were on the couch from 1:30 am and on this morning. My bedroom is like an oven since it's where the sun bakes for the last part of the day. I even have black out-ish curtains on the windows. I've never been so excited for it to be in the 90's!

Ok back to work! I've been trying to get a few things done that keep getting messed up and now it's back in my court after going back and forth!

Good morning happy Tuesday! Made it into the office today. Booooo 
Luckily there is a lot of stuff to work on here so it won't be too boring. 

I finished my Scrappy Triangles yesterday. Boy it's scrappy haha. Looks super busy in the pictures but not so bad in person.

I think I will add a border to it.

Next I'm either going to figure out what to do with the 2" and 2 1/2" squares I have left or do some string blocks with all the 1" wide scraps I have. Leaning towards the string blocks. I love making those.
Here at work it's only supposed to be 104 today. Blech. Snookie and I actually made it all night sleeping in the bed. Probably because we had the AC on a lower setting all day so the house wasn't as hot. We're going to hate the next power bill. 

Since getting the counter isn't part of my job here is my don't make eye contact view I made for myself lol. I already had to get up and sign for a package because the woman was staring at me (before I put that there). Hopefully it works ;)

Never went to the store yesterday since I drove to town to get lunch I didn't want to go again so I will do that after work today.

Hello happy Monday! Today is my cousin Randy's birthday. So far he hasn't been on America's Most Wanted like we thought he might. His FB profile picture has him with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth so he's the classy one.

Watched the kids yesterday. Rosie played, screamed, napped, screamed and then played a bit. No pictures of her this time.

Daniel is starting to really talk a lot more which is nice! I can't understand everything he says but he's getting better.

Mr mostly happy boy. He was a little fussy yesterday but he kept spitting up his formula. I think his stomach doesn't agree with that one.

It's another day in hell here. Sheesh. Ended up on the couch again last night with Snookie on the floor in the cool spot where the AC hits. Poor dog.

I'm almost done sewing my triangle squares together than I will have the big blocks to do next.

Going to go to the grocery store after work today. Out of everything again. Didn't I just do a big grocery shopping?

Good morning happy Sunday! I'm kind of glad to get back to work tomorrow. We should have planned something to do this weekend. Kind of boring! 

Yesterday I went over and watched the kids at their house for a little bit so mom and dad could go grocery shopping. Daniel watched movies and played with his toys.

Nate was happy as long as I was holding him most of the time. I was glad he got happy to play on the floor and in his bouncer after a bottle. Eventually he fell asleep for a bit.

Rosie was bored I think and kept wandering around and getting into mischief and then having huge tantrums. I was like omg you are so tired. I put her in her bed twice but eventually she crashed out on the couch. I was like DO NOT TOUCH HER lol.

Before and after that I worked on my little triangle blocks. At midnight or so last night I got all the small blocks made and trimmed.

Now to start sewing those all together.

Finished watching Your Honor. They left it like it is going to have another season but not sure if they are still making it or not.

Now I'm watching The Man with 1000 children. So scary! That can be such a mess.

The kids are coming over later today while their mom works so I'll have to do a clean up in a bit. Much easier to watch them at my own house. You'd think it would be the other way around.

Another 111 day today. They added another one mid day yesterday. RUDE. Can't wait til it's under 100 again. I can't even go for a walk because it's so hot still at 9pm and then it's too dark. 

Ok off to sew my squares together, they are pinned and ready for a trip through the machine.
