Today I was at Home Depot to check out some new counter tops and I spotted a 50% off sale on these allium:
Allium only blooms nicely the first season in my garden. But at half price, it's worth it just to enjoy them for a few weeks next summer.
I also bought some lemon oil to massage into my kitchen cupboards. It's been way too long since I've done that.
It's a big chore to do all of my cupboards, so it will take some time before they are all done, but at least it's a start.
DH also took down the kitchen lights so I could wash them all. He gave up his nap to help with this chore.
I must say it was so much easier to do with two people. Neither of us had to go up and down the ladder six times just to remove the light shades and another six times to put them back up. He just handed them to me, I washed and dried them and handed them back.
I did get to work on my quilt for about an hour this morning. I had way more to do than I thought, so it's not finished yet, but I feel good that it is almost done.
Quilting it by machine is waaaay faster (MONTHS!) than if I hand quilted it.
I have chicken wing dings, mac/cheese and baked pears in the oven right now.
It's been a busy working weekend, but we love those every now and then. It feels so good to get so much done!
Hope you have had a good weekend, too.
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.
