I am going to pay off Sears today! Yes, yes I am. How's that for hard work and skimping? Now, it is onto new tires for my car as they are bald, and then I am going to hit that very obnoxious Studio lock loan. That bugger will be zapped soon, I tell you. That is as far as my plans go. Just continue to make regular monthly payments on debts and attack one loan at a time.
It was beautiful yesterday and I spent many hours in the yard. Between customers and prom dresses that is.... I did my daily quota in the shop and I took in more work. Prom dresses with lots of bead and sequin work are a pain. I had one refitting today of a dress that needed to come up in the shoulders, so I had to remove the sleeves, and there were beads everywhere. The sleeve holes had to be cut down and now I have to replace the sleeves. I think I will hand baste due to all the beads. Also have a refit tomorrow of a beaded top.
Mom made hub's a sandwich in the late afternoon so I got out of making dinner last night. Yeah. Won't be so lucky today.
Have to get mom to make more cookies as I have to run some to the salvation army soup kitchen some time today. It is my turn and I forgot about it. Too busy shoveling rock.
It is very nice again today so as soon as I get my quota done in the shop and get mom's cookie ingredients lined out I am going outside. I am cleaning the rock out of the garden area now and it is very time consuming. I have to dig down at least a foot to expose all the rock that was thrown out of the drains. At least it isn't wet.
We had a wind come up and take our patio umbrella for a sail, but it landed in such a way that it shattered our patio table. It was such a mess. I could not believe how small the slivers of glass were. I made Hub's clean it up. He asked me what I wanted for our anniversary and I said a new patio table I guess. So much better than a diamond. Right?
I had a girl friend bring over her late motherinlaws sewing machine in its cabinet. The cabinet need to be refinished on top. (good job for Hubs). I will remove the machine, but I love the cabinet.
Then she also brought over a small dresser that is narrow and tall. It is full of sewing supplies. I don't have time to go through it right now, but I am excited to see what I find. It also needs repainting. It is a project for another day.
Will make a stir fry for dinner. Can't wait to get out in the sun again.
Have a great and productive day.
