|Status as of last week|
|Not to much to show - due to a bit of back stitch frogging.|
Not much else to show for my week. Mr. W. is home and back into to his routine of not being on the road and living out of a suitcase. For me, today I've got a big ole grocery list made for shopping for the houseful of family this coming week. Rice pudding and blueberry pies to make today. Casseroles to prep. Veggies to clean and be at the ready. Bedrooms to prep. And of course I just sort of did nothing this morning but stitch for a good two or three cups of coffee worth of time.
And I have my cereal box to make my eclipse viewer. I tried for 10 to 14 days and across three states with phone calls looking for eclipse glasses. I see now that I should have started my search sooner. I admit it I am caught up a little in the frenzy. Heck, this won't happen in my lifetime again. Where I live, I will see 80% of the eclipse. I tried to get workmates to get excited, to bring in solar eclipse themed food and treats. I even told one that I would get a hard hat and cover it will foil if she would and we could sit in lawn chairs on the hill out back our office building. Quite a site I am sure for the drivers on the nearby interstate. No one seems excited, at least at work. And actually Mr. W. is kind of looking at me strangely. For me, I will allow myself to be a little goofy on Monday. What are they going to do.....fire me......not likely.....I have 23 months until my retirement date and they are already stressing by throwing alternatives at me.....same pay, four day week.....or three day week when I didn't bat an eye (no mention of same pay for 3 days).......come back for one week a month......do consultant work on bigger projects........crazy talk for sure. My list of things I want to do in T-minus 23 months and counting is getting longer every week. For now, I am off to buy Orbit gum and Milky Way bars for work and a ton of blueberries for pies and MY Solar Eclipse inspired fruit tray I will take to work. Hopefully, I will have time to make these cute little tags I saw on Pinterest that say "I've been mooned". Wouldn't that be a hoot to pass out afterwards? I digress.......
