I feel like I have accomplished so much this week and I am loving the weather. Monday was chilly as was Tuesday, but since then we've been in the low 70s. Ahhh and this is why people move here.
Since our downstairs feels clean and comfortable, it was time to tackle the upstairs. There are a few things up there that I know have to stay, at least for the time being, so I worked around them. I went through all of the girls toys that lived in our bonus room.
With the help of my friend, P, I went through nearly all of my fabric bins. I have a banker's box for giveaway, and P took home quite a bit of fabric for her crafty boy. I know he'll use it. Then again, my girls would use it, too, but I did keep fabric. I also threw out any small scraps. I know, I could use most of them to make a quilt. I know as a craftista I should save them all, but I didn't. Ok? I needed to let some of that go. I felt better afterward, too.
Friday I taught myself (using online tutorials) how to crochet a granny square. I am making a blanket that is one big granny square using up all of the cotton yarn I have. Who knows if it will look good, but it feels like a good project. I hope to get Rhayn in on it soon. She loves to crochet but only does one crochet stitch. Then Will and I went to a retirement party for a friend of his from the Army National Guard. We didn't get home until after 10pm because the party was on the other side of the world (and almost to my parents' house, though that would probably have taken less time to get to!)
Today I finished the upstairs, including vacuuming the carpet in all of the rooms besides the office. Its awesome. I feel glad that I have gotten so much done, and yes there is still a lot left to do, but man, I am tired. So I plan to take the afternoon off, to read and relax.
