I Have Had Two Whirlwind Days

Where did the time go?!!

I worked Monday, and am now off until Jan. 3.  This is my second day of vacation.  I have never worked harder in my life!  It's 4:22 p.m. and I have been up since 4:45 a.m.  at which time I made a pot of coffee. I drank a few sips of coffee and then began sewing another snowman block. 

At 7:00 am, I spent one hour doing heavy duty cleaning (just so I could accomplish something other than sewing today).  I must say that I got a lot done -- floors scrubbed, bathroom cleaned, tub scoured, shower curtains washed.............whew! 

Then I decided to start sewing a new project with some zebra fabric I bought at Joanne's yesterday.  I began cutting the fabric at shortly after 8:00 a.m.  By 12:30 p.m. the project was completed.  Twice I reheated my coffee that had cooled down in the cup, but I never did get to finish it.  I have not eaten anything all day.  Boy, if I could just be on vacation for a few months, I could lose a lot of weight! LOL.

If you are curious about my zebra fabric project, you can see it on my sewing blog by clicking here............if you just want to see the end result, click here.  I can't see posting the exact same thing on three blogs.

Right now (4:45 p.m.) I am sipping a glass of wine and thawing out some shrimp

 to make a nice dinner of shrimp scampi. I will use some of my MIL's garlic.  YUM!  Sipping wine on an empty stomach is not very wise...LOL.......what's life if you can't have any fun?  That's one of the favorite sayings of a work friend who is almost 80 years old--yes, I said 80 and he is still working!  Oh, Lord, PLEASE make my retirement investments pay off better than his did!


  1. Zoey, you are on a fast track! I also worked with an 80 year old person. She came in three days a week as a school counselor. They say the present generation of retirees will never really retire, just reinvent themselves. It sounds like you and I have a lot of hobbies so it is not hard to reinvent. We'll just sew, garden cook, antique shop and sell, etc.


  2. Wow Zoey you DO get a lot of stuff done.
    But you need to eat in between:)
    Have a good evening,

  3. you are a hard working gal for sure....I love on a empty stomach...not good...
