I Have Had NOTHING to Say

I've granted my husband's 20-year old dream....

I have actually been pretty busy.

I've visited a few blogs and even let a few comments. I've worked all week, got my hair trimmed and my nails done. I've prepared dinner every night, making things like pot roast

mac & cheese, a delicious (if I do say so myself) meatloaf, which I turned into chili midweek.

I took these scraps

and turned them into a handbag! If you read my quilting blog, you already know this. I have posted a few times there this week.

I even invented a new cocktail:

It's a mocha-tini, made with coffee flavored Vodka, Bailey's Irish Creme, and coffee. I used a cocoa mix to rim the edge, giving it just a hint of sugary chocolate flavor. I suppose someone else made this before me, but I have never seen it before, so I am claiming it as my invention, until proven otherwise.

I told you a while ago that I was going to start Christmas decorating, but so far I have done nothing but paint the branches silver. I just am not in the mood. Maybe this weekend..........once I get all the housework done. I have been slacking off. I just came from DH's "den" - really just a spare bedroom with a desk and some bookshelves. The bookshelves are full of dust. It's quite disgusting.

I think he should dust those shelves more often!


  1. wow - a BUSY week! I am curious how to turn meatloaf into chili ....

  2. Really-you have been super busy! Don't get me started about other people dusting. I even got one of those 'premium' static dusts and leave it here and there. I don't have to worry about Sean, he's good at keeping his room tidy.
    I think you probably just crumbles the leftover meatloaf into tomato sauce and kidney beans. I love chili!

  3. Good to hear from you Zoey..ha I chuckled about your hubby's dream come true:)
    So this is the 'blah' before all the flurry of activity begins??
    I really love that handbag you made..beautiful!

  4. OMG that drink looks yummy. I'll stop by for one soon.

  5. I can totally relate to having nothing to say! Sometimes I go weeks without blogging just because I'm busy with other things and my Muse is off in cyberspace somewhere.
