Tuesday, Making a list,kicking the dog

     I finished the wedding veil made completely from left overs in my shop.
     The bride showed me a picture and I used tulle given to me after someones wedding and the lace was left over from a dress I had made.  I purchased the comb from a sewing website.  I get a dozen for $6.99.  I love being able to create something from what others would waste. 

     My dog/puppy was at my feet yesterday while I was blogging. I did not think anything about it.  Well after I was done I noticed that I was having a hard time getting the inter net to attach.  Then the net flix would not work.  So I spent most of the afternoon working on the veil which had to be done by hand and messing with controllers.  I thought the inter net might have gone down as both the computer and the TV were not working.  Well low and behold mister man (the puppy) had chewed through the cable to the inter net.  Now because we live in a rural area our inter net comes through a phone line.  I know, I know dark ages, but it is hard to receive signals here.

     No problem I just need to get a phone cable.  I used to have a drawer in the garage full of phone jacks and cables.  When you needed something you just went outside and got the part. Well in my downsizing efforts I cleaned out that drawer as we no longer have phone in the house.  So I go to buy one.  Wal-mart? K-mart? Rite-aid? Big-lots?  I have to go to Staples where the cord was $8.99, for about .13 cents worth of product.  I would have gone to the Habitat store but it is closed on Monday.  So I grumble and pay the money and come home with the cord. 

     Then I discover in my searching for the problem, that I have unplugged the main computer surge protector and it is behind the big oak desk consul.  I had to jimmy and sweat and work and twist on my back under a dark desk after I despiderfied (a word in Idaho) the nether regions of the desk.  It took me over an hour and I was really cussing and scratched by the end. %$#^&@#! dog.  Who by the way tried to help me the whole time I was fixing the problem.

     I did get a 2 our nap in later in the afternoon as we have plenty of leftovers from Sunday dinner for the next few days. I was also able to get the little Amazon shopping done that I needed to do and I decided to buy mom and dads gifts after the holiday when we go down.  Talbots has a way of putting things on a good sale and then taking the sale off and I will not stand for those tricks but will wait.  I want to get mom a new sweater.  She wears all the things I give her constantly.

      Last night after hub's went to bed I was able to rip the work I will get done today.  Then I plan on baking some kind of cookie and freezing them for the open house.  I also have to make meatballs, which I can freeze.  I will do this later in the week when we are through with our leftovers.  Then Hub's can have them for dinner.

     I had better get to work and get my quota done so I can enjoy my Christmas baking.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  6. At least the puppy didn't chew on the veil! It's a very pretty veil! I love it when someone is able to make something with leftovers!
