One more day..one more day…I am wishing my life away. The last winter program for the Historical Museum happens Tuesday (today yea!!!!) I will be glad to get it over with. This program has involved lots of work. I made a slide show presentation. (Then and Now) I have a passel of things to drag out of the museum and get organized as a display.
Far Guy got a new lumberjack shirt. His volunteer uniform consists of jeans, a red and black checked flannel shirt, a hat to match, suspenders and red socks peeking above his boots. Others participating in the program will be dressed in costumes. They asked me who I was coming as..I replied..plain old me. I wanted to sew a Prairie Dress over the winter..but it was just one of those things that never got done. Me and sewing with a machine is a real stretch of my imagination.
I tried to sew some quilt squares yesterday..after six hours I have nothing to show for my efforts..I do not have the tools to keep the squares square. The stupid sewing machine sits on my desk, for now it has won the battle..but I plan to win the war and will begin all over again one day soon. I might have to go buy some more material if I keep messing up. But it ain’t over til it’s over.
I have stacks of old photos all over..I am in the midst of scanning the last couple of batches for Forgotten Old Photos. I will not have time to scan and research them over the summer, so all of that ground work is being laid now.
I have not worked on the Cousins Recipe Book at all lately..it is on my radar. I had been working on it late at night. I just want to get it over with!
After the dreaded program I will re evaluate everything…. I have bathroom tile to strip and reseal..and bathroom drawers to clean out…and a garage to straighten up. If it ain’t one thing it is forty million others.
Chance had his first deer tick today, it was not stuck, it was just crawling in his fur. We saw Robins in town but none out here yet. Although “she who sees robins first” probably saw them last week.
Happy First Day of Spring! :)
