Yippeeeeeee it is raining!
While I had hopes for more melt over the last few days, I did hear dripping all night, and the piles are getting lower (and looking dirtier in the process) so I know it is happening.
Today I am home – no taxes anywhere –
The bug man is coming this morning – quarterly visit to keep us spider free, so I need to get dressed and going earlier than I would otherwise, but that is good.
I will tidy up a bit as mom is coming tomorrow. She might like to sit down and put a cup of coffee on an actual cleared surface. 🙂
Laundry and the PO of course, as I do each week.
I need to start making my thank you notes for the tax volunteers – not sure what I will make for them this year, but it is time to come up with something.
I want to finish the little orange sweater – the sleeves should be dry, so can be attached, and I can start the crocheted edging and see what buttons I have that will work. I found some really cute ones on Etsy, but am holding off because I likely have plenty upstairs that will work. 🙂
I made the earrings for Mom (well, that she ordered, she won’t wear them) and while they aren’t my favorite colors, they came out well. Only thing is, they came out backwards on the earring wire! I’ll open it today and flip them around, then get photos and share.
I had extra beads and yarn, so I cast on a necklace which will match the earrings, although Mom doesn’t want it, maybe someone else will some day. I dug through my beads and findings while I had them out last night – I need to get some gold-colored fasteners for bracelets, it seems! I have lots of gold silk and only one kind of fastener. That’s why I selected the necklace I did – I have the right fastener for it. Sadly, a trip to Bangor and the bead store might be in order – she is having a sale this month…. wish I had known this yesterday when I was in town, but oh well. I might slip up there today. With a list and cash only. that should keep me in control. 🙂
There is a puzzle on the dining room table that might suck me in as well. 🙂
It’s a puttering day! My favorite kind.
