Monday, Last day of a long month


 And it can't go too soon in my book. It was a hard month to get through, with cold, dark, sickness, no work, too many expenses, not enough money. I won't be unhappy to see it go.

Now is February going to be any better? Not if I don't get busy and the shop doesn't get any busier.

Made a huge pot of shrimp curry yesterday and it was so good.  I will make more rice today and we will have the rest for dinner tonight.  I am going to soak some kidney beans and make a pot of chili and corn bread tomorrow.  Taking my inspiration from Anne in the kitchen.

Just paid all of January's bills that are due except the 4 household bills, of heat,water,internet and phone.  I will pay those tomorrow. or I might just try and cash flow those.  We will see how the rest of the week goes.

Kelsa is in the other room playing with a train and she is saying Woo, Woo! She is so fun.  Grandpa took her for a walk and she fell asleep and took a good nap.  I ran to Joanns this morning for a zipper, and I need to run to the post office later today.

SO today I am going to:

1. replace zipper in coat

2. press a wedding dress and call client

3. make a pillow cover

4. do up a big pile of alterations

I also have a wedding dress to start on and will try to rip that tonight after Kelsa leaves.

I think I will have quite a few clients tomorrow as I have had many phone calls today.That makes me happy.  IT is dreary and overcast again, and it was so sunny this morning dang weather!

I need to call and reschedule my appointment with accountant as most of the things we need are not here yet.  So much for getting all those things by the end of January. That is okay with me as I don't have the money to pay the accountant until March anyway.

Is anyone else raring for January to be over?


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

  1. Amazingly January is going out nicely, kind of like it came in. Feb. starts with 50's and then BOOM - the bottom falls out and it gets cold and we have a winter storm watch. Looks like a couple icky days. I guess we are due. UGH.

    1. Well, you have to have winter to have water here, so I just accept it. But I hope it doesn't get too cold especially for the outdoor kitties.

  2. No, I never wish a month over to end bad things. The reason I am glad to see a new month is because my ss check arrives. I do wish winter over to get rid of the cold. I suppose it is the same thing. Plus, our weather is not as cold or snowy as yours.

    1. Oh yes the waiting for a paycheck. I remember those days. Now it is not so exciting as the paychecks are all allocated to bills so what wait for something that you don't get to spend?

  3. I just figure February is one month closer to warmer weather, and that is good. Overall, January wasn't horrible, despite my Covid bout. I'm so thankful I was not really sick, so consider it a good month. DH's work has been slow-which translates to lower earnings, so I get the stress there. On to February and ass Kelsa says, Woo Woo!

    1. I know, having lower earnings is always a stressor so that must make you worry a little. I am so happy you were not really sick with covid. But I am sure the jabs helped. We just lost 3 more unvaccinated people in this small community yesterday. All I can do is shake my head.

  4. Normally, February is my toughest month, but not this year.

  6. I made a big pot of chili last night. Chili of any variety always hits the spot on cold nights.
