Saturday Roundup

It has been a busy week. Not so much doing things around the house, but busy enough.

We delivered meals to shut ins all week and while the weather did not always cooperate things did get delivered on time.

The new carpet was laid in the living room and I do hope it stands up as well as the old did.

It is actually a darker brown than the picture and the lighter flecks actually match the paint on the walls. Notice the piles of yarn beside my rather broken recliner. That is the yarn I am using to knit the temperature blanket and Harvey's  Christmas gift.  I have been told that I need a new chair and so we will be looking at accent chairs next week. Hopefully whatever we choose will be here by Christmas.

I finished up some sewing.

A pair of elastic waist pants which were actually done last week. But they needed pressing and washing.

An easy midi elastic waist skirt.

A simple cotton sleeveless top. My Mom used to call these types of tops pop tops. Cause you can just pop them right on.

I started my last cut out pattern, but have not finished it yet. 

Pulling a couple of boxes out that I brought home from Dad's place when he died I found a bunch of photos. I started scanning them onto the computer this afternoon. Still have more to do, but hopefully will be finished them very soon.

Totalled up the number of items either recycled or donated and we are up to 492 items gone. I am beginning to feel much lighter.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. The carpet looks great.

    I look forward to seeing the temperature blanket. I've seen mixed reports on them. Do you use your own local temperature or something on the web? I don't think I would remember to check daily!

  2. Wow, you have been busy - making, sorting, decluttering.
