Friday Jan.2- 2009 was my first no spend day. it was harder than I thought, one because their were great sales in town and one at my favorite yarn store. Not that I need any yarn but I am a sucker for sales,hence how my house became so cluttered. But.... I did not leave the house except to walk with Mr.P and the dog. Also yesterday was d#2 without sugar. Am feeling a little better but still very tired at night and then having trouble sleeping.
yesterday was spent sewing on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, I only completed the first set of blocks,lots and lots of cutting, pressing and sewing of small pieces. I do think that it will be beautiful when done.
Today a turkey will be cooked with all the trimmings aka: mashed potatoes, stuffing and corn. We will eat off of the bird for about 3 days then freeze what ever is left for another day, will also make 2 loaves of bread for the week.
It is starting to snow, we are expecting about 1-3 inches though the weather men in Colorado are hard to trust. I would never bet the farm on their predictions, I like to use Farmers. Almanac site.
1/108 no spend days
2/300 no sugar days
x2 loaves bread
Will post pictures of the bread later, it is in the oven at the moment.
Oh something else Mr.P and I are going to be doing: Redoing the bathrooms. I hope this will not ruin 30 years of marriage. We tend to do things very differently. He being a man that needs LOTS of information and me being a women who will figure it out as I go. Should be interesting. We are off to Home Depot to get new fixtures and paint, then it's let the fun begin!!!!
