Thursday Tidbits

We had a watermain repair today so our water was off from early morning until late afternoon. At least time they gave us some warning so I could fill things with water. Nothing worse than not being able to flush the toilets.

I finished the dress I had started a few days (well about a week and a half ago). The sleeves did not go as well as I had hoped, but it is still wearable. Picture to follow at some point next week.

Decluttering took place as well (since I had no water to do any extra cleaning. I will get caught up on that front tomorrow.

The sewing machine is all set up for the first pair of pajama pants and the elastic is cut for both pairs. I am hoping to get both pairs sewn in the next day and a half. Problem is my back starts to hurt if I sit too long at the sewing machine.

The weather has warmed up considerably. I put on my winter ice cleats and had a bit of a walk this morning. It was sure nice to be out in the fresh air. There is something so freeing about getting outside and just moving.

This weekend we are having a big craft sale in town. One I have always gone to, but this year I am really considering giving it a miss. The cost to enter used to be $2.00 a person but this year the cost has risen to $5.00 a person, more than double!! I know prices are rising, but really. We never buy anything, but it does give me a chance to see new and interesting crafts. Perhaps even give me some new ideas.

Paid a visit to the library earlier this week. Now I have reading material for a few weeks.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. I go to fairs to get ideas but sometimes the cost can be prohibitive.

  2. I haven't been to a craft fair in years. The items always seem to be so overpriced, and the cost of attendance is often prohibitive as well.

    Have a good rest of the weekend.
