A Life Day

Yesterday was one of those days. I had so many things planned that I wanted to do, and then life took over and most of them did not get done. I am going to vent just a little bit about it - more for me then for you, but thanks.

I woke up this morning to run and felt like I wanted to throw up. I thank my kids for that. So I went back to bed until Thing #5 woke up, which was not very long. I then had to hold my breath and get breakfast for everyone and lunch ready for the school kids. Once they were out the door I could tackle my next project - the driveway. Conan had to go to work early this morning and the driveway still needed to be shoveled. However, I had driven on it twice already and Conan had as well, so it was well packed down. However, I was not able to get to it until Thing #5 was napping because when I tried to do it with him, he kept falling over and the snow was too deep for him to be able to get up. In the meantime I sat on the couch and relaxed for a few minutes because I really just had no energy or desire to do anything else. Then there was more laundry that had to be done. I did get it all washed and dried, now it is waiting for me to fold it and it might be for sometime. By this time I had to go and get the kids from school and then the rest of the day is pretty much history.

But on an upside I love how everything looks with snow. It is so peaceful and beautiful. And I am feeling better today, so that is awesome! Here is to getting something fun done today! I had an ah-ha moment the other day at Church for a fun scarf. It is pretty easy and on the top of my list to do today.

I was able to get a little bit of sewing done yesterday. I wanted to make a good dent in my first quilt for the year, but this is as far as I was able to get.

This is from the line Fresh Squeezed by Moda. The pattern is called Framed. It is a very bright quilt, which I love! Maybe today I can also get all of these squares sewn together.
Pin It! \
