My Saturday...

Today is my Saturday. Since we work the weekends we consider the last day we work our Friday, making this my saturday. It's quiet here, except the dishwasher is running, and I have gotten some sewing done! YEAH!! The kids and Rich will be home in less than an hour and I am soaking up my last 1/3 hour of quiet! It is kinda nice to be off in the middle of the week, I really haven't minded working the weekends like I thought I would. The time goes fast, but I am sure this will change come summer when all the extra activities switch into high gear. It's not like I can really do anything outside now, its either raining or snowing!

This is what was happening when I came home from work on Sunday in my neighbors field!

Combining Corn!

And these are what I have been working on today. I have made 3 little table runners. Yes, the bindings need sewn down, but that is for later tonight or tomorrow. One is for Mary, one is for mom, and one is for Grandma.





I also have the bindings to sewn of my tree skirt and J's quilt so I think tomorrow will be binding day. I will just gather it all, my needle and thread, sit in front of the TV and sew bindings down. That sounds like a plan, then maybe I will get them done. I hate bindings, which I have mentioned before.

But I am loving our gas heater! It makes the house pretty warm. It is 73 in here now, and our floors are nice and toasty. I am able to wear just a t-shirt, sweatshirt, and jeans. I don't even have to wear socks really! (usually its a long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, jeans (sweats), and thick socks plus a quilt!) I admit I am still drinking my hot chocolate, but not as many cups and that will never change anyway!

I also am excited to announce that I won a book blog giveaway!! The Social Frog gave away "Hundred Dollar Holidays" and I won! Very excited and can't wait to receive the book! Rich and I are not into spending thousands of dollars on holidays. Mainly because its not worth it, and our kids pretty much have everything they need. Don't get me wrong, my kids are NOT spoiled by any means, but they work for what they have. So this book should be interesting to see what it says about keeping costs down!

Currently I am reading Revelation by Bill Napier. I am only about 50 pages into it, but it seems pretty good. It reminds me of Clive Cussler and his NUMA files books. So if there is not too much riske stuff in it, I will pass it on to T when I am done. He loves Clive Cussler and I think has read every one that is out!

And in other news, Basketball tryouts start next week. And we will probably make the team so it will be practices after school, then games after the new year. Also J needs to start running again to get ready for track season. We have choir concerts coming up and a band concert. Then the kids are off for two weeks during the holidays. And hopefully we won't get too much snow in the coming weeks!

Hope everyone is having a great day!
