Monday. Day after another good weekend.

So I sit here at whatever o’clock in the evening, waiting for my trusty inkjet printer to spit out envelopes.  One at a time. That is, one at a time after I hit the feed button.  For. Every.  Single. One.

Last week, it happily spit out 75 envelopes and only made me hit the button once. I guess it doesn’t like Mondays, either.

Now it ran out of envelopes, and although I put them in the same way I have for the last several years, it no longer likes that way.  It might be time to give up and go home!

Blah. Anywho –  I had a good weekend, how about you?  The weather could not have been more wonderful – maybe a bit hot, but as we had NO PLANS that was OK – when I got hot, I got in my little pool and floated around.

I did a bunch of things I had to do Friday, but not all I had planned, by a long shot. Still, I felt like I got things done. We had game night with A’s co-workers – that was fun, as always.  For the first time, I almost won a game!  Tied for first, but lost the tie breaker.  Oh well, it was still fun.

A had no ambition or energy – not sure why, but that meant there was no obligation to go anywhere!  I washed the windows in her office and in the craft room, which also meant cleaning off the window sill and sweeping up there, which had not been done in a long time, apparently. Lots of leaves and little beads and wonderful treasures…  cleaned the space between window and screen on a bunch of our windows, not sure how it gets so dirty, but it looks good when clean.  AND I scrubbed the icky aluminum doorsill on the back door – definitely that was too green to think about, but it is gleaming now!

I sewed all the rings on the roman shades for the craft room. Next step – hem the tops, buy the cord and PUT THEM UP!  Yahoo!

I also worked out in the yard, and found to my great pleasure that what I thought was a grow sack full of dirt really did have potatoes in it. Not a huge harvest, but enough to tell me that if I really pay attention to it next year, it will be worth doing. A colander full of small potatoes, enough for a salad or something.  Very fun.

I also found that my lush bed of green tomatoes has decided that perhaps, maybe, someday soon, they will turn red.  Streaks of orange are starting to appear.  Maybe they just needed some warm sunshine, too. My sunflowers have blossoms at last.  I know, I know, everyone else has flowers.  I didn’t even start them TOO late…  All in all, a good garden day.

Worked on the lace scarf, more than halfway done now – yippee. As i have lots more lace yarn upstairs, I think I will be making a few of these this year. Not sure why I like it so much, but I do. Very satisfying when it is done.

I also got the guest room ready for this weekends occupant – can’t wait to see L and the girls – coming to deliver B to college.  Should be a fun weekend. Plus, I will be on vacation.

If I can ever get these envelopes printed…. time to go push the button…
