It Most Definitely Is Not Friday Anymore

That is right, it is now Wednesday morning and I can’t seem to figure out what happened to Friday – or the last four days, actually.  I reminded myself again last night that I never did buy a proper daily journal for the year, so I am stuck with these semi-weekly posts to keep myself updated on life for those times I want to look back and see what I was up to.  And what have I been up to the last couple of weeks?  Mostly schooling and keeping up with house work, as usual.  I’ve gone to bed with a clean kitchen and washed clothes for several weeks – nay, maybe months – now and it is a really nice feeling to wake up to a clean kitchen every morning.  I think the only downside pertains to this here blog and my less frequent posts.

Keeping the house clean isn’t all I’ve been doing though, don’t get me wrong.  And it’s not like I haven’t been online at all.  There’s been plenty of other things that have been keeping me busy, and I’ve done quite a bit of online shopping lately also.  Which should I start with first?

Let’s go with the shopping:  patterns, shoes, and electronics have all made their way into my life lately.  The patterns and the shoes, specifically for me.  The electronics, for those others of the family.


This had been on my wish list for a little while now and I was happy to have come across it one day for sale.


Hopefully I will get to one of these before the month is over for February’s Monthly Stitch challenge.


A new pair of Doc Marten’s at a great discounted price? Yes, please!

Now as for the weekend activities:  last week we were helping to prune grapes, this weekend I was picking up sticks.  I will not complain, I quite liked being outdoors – the weather was wonderful – and it made for a different kind of workout.


The only negative thing I will say was that I forgot to put my FitBit on for the day, and I just know I missed out on thousands of steps walking back and forth for several hours collecting all those cut off vines.  But other than that, I have nothing bad to say about how I’ve spent my time lately; and I have very much enjoyed my busy life the last few weeks.


How about you, what has been keeping you busy?
