Random Rambling


Have you ever lived alone - I mean truly by yourself? Not your dorm room, not with a roomate or house mate or dorm mate or whatever...I'm not just talking about having moved out of your parents home with friends...truly by yourself. Its interesting....you don't get so angry when you do dishes, or clean the bathroom, the mess is all your own. There is something nice about it, no one gets mad at you when you chose to not pay for cable, dinner is whatever you feel like eating, whatever you happen to have....and no one eats your Ben and Jerry's!!!

Don't get me wrong....I don't ever want to live alone again, at least not for a long time, that would mean my family wasn't with me. But that year and a half - in my itty bitty little appartment, after living with a very caustic person, was a great time for me.

I am trying so hard to not buy anymore fabric until I make a HUGE dent in my current stash. I have this problem of buying a fabric I really like it and then not wanting to use it because I love it so much I don't want to cut it....yeah....weird I know!! I am trying really hard to find a use for every inch of fabric I have....and to use it all before the festival!!!

I made the perfect eggs today. Over easy - the consistency was perfect, the yolks did not break when I flipped them and stayed whole when I transferred to the plate. They would make a short order cook proud!!

My poor neglected quilt....do you remember the quilt project I started oh so many moons ago? (there's a link to the two posts I did about it on my left sidebar)....I am happy to inform you that I have not given up on it....unfortunately I just haven't had the time. These past few weeks (especially these past few weeks) I have been focussing all of my free time getting ready for this festival (NEXT WEEKEND!!! AHHHHH)...I am planning to finish my quilt....or at least start finishing it, as soon as this festival is over (unless of course I sign up for another....which I will....if I am successful).

I have had some questions about my bags, how much, and when I will start selling them. I am not going to start posting them for sale online until after this festival. I am really focussing on that right now and really need to have as much on hand for that as I possibly can....and right now the inventory is meager. {if you are wondering how I manage to post so much when I say I am so "busy" to be honest I type when I cannot sew - either too tired or the boys are underfoot or late at night when I am in bed and can't sleep}

And finally...for Tommy...since his birthday party is this Saturday (we opted no to have it on the holiday weekend)...here is an oldie but a goodie.....

daddy decided Tommy should wear his diapers differently than all the other babies....

  1. On very rare occasions, I do so long for the days of solitude in my old apartment. Funny how back then I longed to live in a house full of kids and a husband! :)

  2. I did live by myself for a little bit, but I didn't like it very much because I was lonely. I never had a bad roommate experience, which I think makes people enjoy their own place when they have it :)

  3. I lived by myself for about a year...it was my first time away from home. I did well until a mouse got into my apartment. I freaked out! LOL

    When you were talking about how you couldn't bear to part with your fabric, I was gonna suggest making a quilt, so you would always have a piece of each pattern. Then, I read further down in your post....HAHA! You sound like me. :-)

  4. I lived by myself for a while. I liked it. All the decor was picked by me. My house stayed (mostly) clean. I could come and go as I pleased, but you're right, I wouldn't trade it for anything right now!
