It's a good thing I cleaned those cupboards early because that's about all the work I really got done today.
I spent a bit of time this morning making 4 of these tree log cabin blocks. I enjoyed that. I watched Regis and Kelli (Kelly? I have never been home to see this show before, so don't know how she spells her name) while I sewed.
Regis, Regis, Regis..........What were you thinking when you came to work today?
That suit is bad! And "bad" doesn't mean good as it does with the younger generation.
I kept thinking that color must be some joke, but if it was, I did not hear the punch line. It makes me shudder just to look at that lime green suit!
At about noon, I went shopping. I did not get back home until 3:30pm. I had to buy little gifts for the Christmas Bingo game, I went to Walden and bought a book for myself, I went to JC Penney and bought a little gift for a co-worker and 2 shirts for me, I went to a dollar store and saw these for only $1.00 each......that's .50 for one, so I bought 7 of them for me..... Ho, HO, HO, Merry Christmas to me. I bought more for myself than anyone else! Geez, how could I resist these for .50 each? I can even use them for fall decorations as the color is fallish. I would just kick myself next September if I didn't buy them! :)
After I got home and put the gold hanging things on the tree, I started to make this alcoholic slush stuff
You make a simple syrup and add orange juice and lemonade and 2.5 cups of Vodka. You refrigerate it overnight and then freeze it, stirring it every couple of hours until it forms a slush. Then you just keep it frozen until you want to use it. You plop a scoopful into a glass, add some 7-up and voila! it's done. I think I will borrow some margarita glasses from work and add sugar to the rim when I serve these on Christmas Eve. I used a peach-flavored Vodka as that is what I had in the cupboard. It all sounds sissy enough for me and my family to enjoy. What I really like is that any leftovers can be kept frozen for another time.
I had to go to the grocery store this afternoon to get the OJ, etc. I had a list of stuff I needed. Do you think I could find that list when I got there? I searched my purse twice in the parking lot and could not find it. I also went to Gordon Food Service and had their ad, but could not find that either so I didn't know what I was supposed to buy once I got inside either store. It was frustrating and I silently thanked DH for doing the majority of the grocery shopping. He does it so much better than I. When I got home and carried all the bags into the kitchen, guess what I found? The list and ad were both still sitting on the desk. I just was not meant to be a shopper!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
