Thursday, I have to differ my friends

If I put it on the floor and I have to trip over it, I will do it, maybe?
Kind of blurry mangle picture.  See those beautiful pillow cases!
      I have a feeling there are many pillow case ironing haters out there in blog land.  But I love me a freshly ironed pillow case.  They smell and feel so good.  It is one of life's simple pleasures  You know that feeling you get when you slip into a bed with fresh sheets and an ironed pillow case.  Try it, you will love it!  I also own a mangler so it takes about 10 seconds to iron a pillow case at my house.  Much advice to stop ironing, but I just can't, it is much like stop eating chocolate, I can't.

     I think I can pay a few more studio bills this morning.  I also need to run to Joanns for a few sewing items.  Still did not pay the studio rent yesterday so I will put that on my list as I go down town.  Where is my brain?

     I received two checks in the mail today for sewing,  I love it when that happens.  It is like extra money I forget about. 

     Yesterday I was in a quandary of what to make for dinner with my one large thawed out chicken breast.  Hmmm.....  So I minced an onion and added a clove of garlic to some olive oil and sauteed them until clear, then added the sliced up chicken breast.  I put that to the side and again sauteed a small zucchini, a small yellow squash, two green peppers, and three roma tomatoes from the garden until they were nicely browned.  I boiled a package of linguini and added the above two saute's and then grated 1/2 cup of cheese on top and some Parmesan cheese, sea salt and pepper, a little more olive oil.  It was delicious and cheap!  Add a salad mostly from the garden and some bread, you have a meal.  Plus there were left overs for Hubbies lunch.

    Thursdays is my long teaching day, but I don't have to clean the bank tonight so I call that a win.  Tomorrow is Art Walk in downtown Lewiston so I will have to be at the studio, but that is always fun.  Lots to do and see, I have a few groups dancing.  It is an easy form of advertizing.

     I am having stew in the crock pot for dinner, and I noticed we were out of milk so I will add that to my list of errands.

     Out My Window:  The yard is beyond bad in the terms of weeding.  Hope to get out there this weekend if I can convince myself.

     Well I am off to clean up , run through the house, start a load of laundry and go do my errands.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I've never heard of ironed pillow cases, to be honest. I don't even iron my stuff, except my button-up work shirts. The rest just gets fluffed in the dryer. Dinner sounded pretty simple, cheap and delicious. Can't get any fresher than a large serving of garden vegetables!

  2. My mother still irons all of our pillow cases and also presses off the bottom and top sheets. Thank God she irons because I am lousy at it. She says it calms her nerves.
