As usual, I am always busy over the week-ends..work, ya know. That dirty 4 letter word!!! But I'm one of the fortunate ones...I DO have a job....right??
Well, Saturday morning, I made a batch of banana nut muffins....the big ones. They were so good...I don't think I've made them since last fall. Comfort food!! Pair one up with a cup of tea...
This week I haven't accomplished much. I did finish up one of the hats I had an order for....a red mock ear flap hat. Three more to go... I really need to get my "butt" in gear. I keep thinking I have all of this extra time...BUT...well, you know the story.
We're heading to the States on Monday...this is our annual Christmas shopping trip. I do have a good part of it done...but there still are a few things I'm looking for. A good reason to get away.
Went to the dentist on Tuesday...easier than I thought it would be. I had a filling replaced and some "bonding" done on my front tooth. The worst part of the whole procedure was the "grinding" noise I had to deal with. It's over...and they look better. I'm lucky to have a good dentist I trust!!!
Well, better get this show on the road. Need to vacuum the downstairs yet...Lord knows it needs it.
Have a great day!!

It's been almost a month since I sat down to share my "daily adventures" with you. Not that I do anything that's earth shattering...but it's my life and I quite enjoy it--for the most part.
Not alot to share. The craft show has come and gone. I did better than last year, but not as good as I had hoped for. I sold a pair of mittens...some "scrap happy" dish cloths, pot scrubbies....and 3 hats. The good thing is that I have several orders for hats that need to be finished by Christmas week. Hopefully...a "no brainer."
Have been working on Christmas gifts...both homemade and purchased items. I'd say I'm about 50% finished. We're heading down to the States in a few weeks to finish it up.
Plans for today...I have to go over to my neighbors and push the vacuum...go to work for 3-4 hours...stop off at the post office and market. Ebay sales have slightly picked up , so I want to get a few things listed for the week-end.
So I'm off...like a "herd of turtles"...better get this day started. Check out one of my hats....thought for sure it would sell at the craft show. Maybe it's the color. Oh well...
