Thursday, Not much got done

     I am not sure what happened to yesterday, I just not much got done.  I did get the tomato sauce in the freezer. When you make tomato paste/sauce, and you sieve it and then boil it down it really condenses. A half a large stock pot of tomatoes, boiled and sieved only made 2 cups of paste/sauce. I also made two large pans of chicken enchiladas and delivered a meal.  I burst and froze 4 packaged of chicken breasts, but I did not get much sewing done.  I took a nap for about 1.5 hours and I am still have problems with my digestive system.  I keep thinking it is getting better and then not so much. I have no excuses for not getting things done in the shop and today I am going to kick my butt in there.

     I have to teach a sewing class at church tonight.  Just basic hemming and know your machine.   I will need to get things ready for that.  We will have leftover enchiladas for dinner. So no worries about dinner.  Hub's is in the pit again tonight and I have his concert clothes washed and ironed ready for this weeks final run.

     What is Kim going to do today?

1. go to Joanns for two zippers
2. do two loads of laundry
3. hem and patch a pair of hunting pants
4. call clients for pick up
5. replace zipper in a skirt
6. replace zipper in a dress
7. replace zipper in a couch cushion
8. sew patches on a military uniform
9. get the beading done on a wedding dress
10. hem a bridesmaid dress
11. fix the neckline on two dresses
12. hem two pairs of pants
13. take in a shirt

     If I stick to my guns I should be able to get all this done today.  I do have tomorrow also but I would really like to get the two coats I have been putting off altering done.  I also have two more wedding dresses coiling in by next Monday.  But the shop is getting caught up and maybe I can relax more and get other things done.

I am off to complete above list.  What are you going to get done today?

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



  1. You make me want chicken enchiladas! I'm sure yours are way better than the ones I get at Walmart in their deli section.

    I am not good at kicking my own butt. I did some banking and credit-unioning a day early, since I'll be joining my sister on a casino trip Friday. But that's not real work!

    1. Okay easy chicken enchiladas. Buy a 10 pack of flour tortillas. 2 chicken breasts (bake at 350, let cool) mix one can mild chilies chopped, one can cream of chicken soup, 1/2 can milk, and some fried up chopped onions. Shred some cheese or buy it already shredded (on sale of course) lay tortilla out add a few slices of chicken the length of the roll, a few spoonfuls of sauce, some cheese roll up put in a greased cake pan, It should hold 10, spread rest of sauce on top and top with cheese bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Delicious.

  2. I could leave the chilis out! They sound delicious. Today, I am recovering from the ordeal from yesterday with Tommy. Then, I washed a load of clothes which I still need to hang indoors. In a bit I will cook dinner which will last for Friday and Saturday.

  3. Just got home from work-I stayed in the office until 6:30 and it was a long day. Your days always seem longer to me though.

    1. Mine was a long day, but at least I was home and my own boss. However you make a lot more money!
