Ok... it's after the new year so I thought I'd better figure out who were the winners of my giveaway. I trotted over to Random.org and had them generate a couple of numbers. So... the winning numbers were 14 and 17.
So.... That means the winners are Jenna Gayle and 2 Tramps. So, you two please email me your mailing address to fullfreezer at gmail (dot) com and I'll try to get those packages into the mail this week while I'm off.
Today was the first real day of my vacation. Oh, I was off on Sunday and yesterday but those were play days. New Year's day we didn't do much. We actually spent a lot of time looking for a folder that V has misplaced. The children have been clamoring for a family D&D game and V couldn't find his Dungeon Master's folder with all his maps and stuff in it (the lost was finally found today in the bottom of a box of books that we hadn't unpacked yet). But the search got us to tidy up and do a bit of sorting and purging of stuff we don't need yesterday and today. As rooms have been finished, we have been slowly unpacking books and such and we're finally down to only 2 boxes left and I believe those are V's collection of 'Presidential Papers' that he inherited from one of his uncles. Not anything I'd probably read but it is a complete set for what it is and most likely has some value.
Last night, instead of D&D we played a family game of 'Kingmaker'. It's a strategy board game about the War of the Roses. We stayed up late and V finally won because my royal heir was killed by the plague after I had retired to Calais with him and 700 troops. C'est la vie...
Today, I got busy on my to-do list. We all slept in after a late game night and when I rolled out of bed at nearly 9 I made a triple batch of waffles for breakfast and to freeze. I also did lots of laundry (We finally strong-armed J17 to clean her room and she had two hampers full of dirty clothes!), worked on a Victorian shirt (my next project), brought in another table for my sewing room from the shop where it has been stored and figured out how to rearrange that room so it is more user friendly.
Tomorrow, the children go back to school. I've got some errands to run and then I hope to finish the shirt I'm making for V. That finished, I'm going to rip apart the sewing room and rearrange. Also on my list for the week, reorganizing the pantry, sorting seeds and seed starting stuff, perusing seed catalogues and sorting through the piles of papers that have accumulated on my desk. My desk is upstairs and tends to be a catch-all for all kind so stuff- not all mine!
Oops, gotta go check my chicken in the oven. Have a great week...
