It was HOT today! At least hot for October. It hit the mid 80's here today. A bit too windy for working up on ladders hanging gutters so other things took precedence. But we weren't all work and no play!
With the new x-box, we have new capabilities. Networking!
K11 was upstairs
Mostly, I worked on household maintenance stuff- laundry, dishes, etc. Let me tell you, with the warm, dry wind today, things dried quickly on the line. Mmmm... line dried sheets! But J17 and I did have a little fun! I had some errands to run so she came along. We stopped back at the fabric shop and she turned in her application. Hopefully they will call her. And while we were there- of course we looked around since it was the Columbus Day sale event. They had Simplicity patterns on sale for 99 cents each! What a deal since they are often $12-15. So at that price we had to pick some up. I got 4 patterns for myself and J17 picked out a few as well. The fun thing is that with the multi-sized patterns we can each use each others if we choose. I haven't purchased new clothing patterns for myself for years so I'm excited about this! I also picked out some lovely dark olive green linen for a pair of dress pants (fortunately we had a 50% off coupon since it wasn't on sale- man, fabric can be expensive!!). J17 got some soft, pale blue fabric for a nightgown that she wants to make.
Now I'm really excited to get sewing. I picked out a lovely skirt pattern that I want to use with some fabric I got last weekend. Yes, I bought fabric without having a pattern in mind- so what- I really liked it! Tell me you've never done the same thing!!
Since I got lots of the maintenance things done today, I hope to do more 'fun' productive things in the next two days. The weather is supposed to be continuing hot and clear and we've already warned the boys that tomorrow is a technology free day (no computers or x-box) since they need to get outside and enjoy the weather while it lasts.
