Well, sort of. You see, I'm on vacation this week. And technically, today (Monday) was the first vacation day. So what did I do?
Remember the new refrigerator? It was delivered on Friday just as I was leaving for work. Hubby arranged the shelves.
Today I fixed them. It was driving me nuts!
It's so nice having a new refrigerator. Although it's a little smaller than our old one, I'm really liking it so far. Oh! I also wanted to show you that the freezer's stocked with all the essentials.
Speaking of food, since it's my vacation and almost Cinco de Mayo, Hubby and I went to our local Mexican restaurant for dinner--Felipe's. Hubby got a cheese enchillada and some kind of taco--can't remember if it was chicken or beef. Beef would be my guess, but there's so much cheese crammed in there, it's hard to tell.
And my dinner--beef flautas, rice, and beans. I don't usually get flautas, but it kind of sounded good. (Actually, the guacamole and sour cream sounded pretty good!) Hubby pointed out to our waitress that I was being all weird, taking photos of our food. Yep, family support--it's what every blogger needs!
And guess what arrived today from the Fat Quater Shop? A little red fat quarter bundle of joy! And why did I get the red fat quarter bundle?
Ah! Because it contained this! Remember this? This is the panel you all made me buy. I can't recall my justification for blaming you at the time, but I know it wasn't my fault--not at all! So, not only did you make me buy a panel, but I had to buy the fat quarter bundle in order to get it!
I also took a little time today to clean off this sewing case I found at Goodwill last week. It will hold all my embroidery stuff--just so long as Gran's supply list doesn't get any longer! Oh, and, of course, I have that fancy-schmancy binder to hold stuff too!
Here's the inside. The plastic tray was cracked a little, but I applied about 27 layers of scotch tape to it--I figure that will hold it for now. (Until Gran's supply list grows longer.)
And then here's what I spent much of the day working on--the hats and shoes quilt top. I think I'm liking it! Since it was a bit wider than it was long, I added that black floral panel at the bottom. I'm planning to add some applique there. Want to know what I'm going to add?
Here I have the letters cut out--I'm in the middle of prepping them for applique.
So that was pretty much my first day of vacation, except for the grocery shopping--no photos of that, but after I rearranged the refrigerator, I figured we needed a couple things. (Like more ice cream.)
The original plan for this vacation was that Hubby and I would drive down to Salinas to visit my mom while I was off. Remember my mom and her broken hip? Well, she's doing okay and is in a nursing home, where she'll stay for the next week or two and then be released back home. After talking with my brother about our planned trip, I found out that he'll be out of town the days we'd planned to visit and my sister-in-law will be working and getting her son ready for his prom. On top of that, Hubby's been suffering from nearly daily bouts of Meniere's disease, which makes him dizzy and nauseous. The bouts seem to be triggered by the changing weather and allergies. So, all in all, we've decided to postpone the visit for a couple weeks and drive down on a weekend. By then my mom will be back home, and the weather will have stabilized, so hopefully Hubby will be feeling better.
And you know what? That's fine with me--I have so many things to do around here, I wasn't really looking forward to spending so much time on the road, although it would have been nice to spend a little time with my family. Still, I'll have that to look forward to in a couple weeks.
Well, it's time now for me to go lay around and do nothing--after all, I'm on vacation!
