Most people dislike Monday's. When I worked outside of the home, I was not a fan of it either. But now that retirement has happened.......Monday is the day hubby and I get quite a bit done as far as errand running.
Today was no exception. Hubby did some work in the yard early this morning while I updated my book and fiber journals as well as cleaned some windows. Once that was done, hubby took off to get our RO water jugs filled, get our pool water tested and picked up my 25 lb bag of spelt flour. While he did that, I headed to Wally World to find a container to hold said 25 lb of flour as well as some 'special' dog food. We both got home about the same time and put everything away.
That made it lunch time.............................this is what happened yesterday to make our life a bit easier.
I made 8 mason jar salads for hubby and myself. This is the first time I have made these. I must say....................the salad was delicious and am looking forward to having another one tomorrow. We will see how they hold up by day 4. Hubby was also impressed with the flavor and how everything was crisp.
This afternoon we made our plans for the week as far as house cleaning and laundry and any other errands we need to accomplish before we leave town this weekend. Once that was done, we decided to take some time and just relax and watch some of our recorded shows.
I worked on my dishcloths for a while and did finish the red one and started and finished another one today too. I will update about them on Sunday.
There has been something else I have been wanting to do for quite a while and today was the day I started on it...................learning how to REALLY use my camera I bought a year ago. I started reading this:
It is excellent. He does not talk above my education level. Even though I have used the camera I am starting from the very beginning of the book and reacquainting myself with some of the features I had forgotten were there. I hope by the time I get about half way through this book I will be taking some fantabulous photos. I have some fun lenses I really want to get familiar with and he even goes into that in this book. Learning something new is so much fun...........even at my 'old' age.
Dinner is over and I am getting ready to cast on another dishcloth. I want them all done so I can mail them and get back to my socks. Plus....................I have a test knit coming up in a couple of weeks, so need to be finished with other projects so I can devote my time to it.
Until next time.................happy crafting!!!!!!
