Technically, it's Friday, although it's not much past Thursday night and I haven't gone to bed yet. Still, it's time for the Friday Night Sew-In--or it will be tonight. (Gosh, is there a TIME to start?!) I'm ready; are you?!
I came home from work and cleaned house. Most of the time, I speed clean--whatever's not done in two hours isn't going to GET done. Tonight, though, I was cleaning at warp speed--1 hour, 20 minutes. Nearly unbelieveable and quite possibly a new record. Hubby and I are fairly neat and tidy people (because our house is so small, we'd be thought horders otherwise), so when I clean, there's not usually a lot of straightening up and putting away that needs to take place--I can just dive right into the whirlwind cleaning.
Once the house was clean (and I ate a little Chinese fast food for dinner), I made some homemade chicken and pasta soup for tomorrow night's dinner. Hubby was nearly drooling at the chicken-y soup aroma wafting throughout the house, and in a weak moment, he offered to bake homemade honey wheat rolls to go with the soup. Yum! It's been awhile since he baked bread! So we have that to look forward to when I get home from work tomorrow night!
(There's what looks like a bit of spill residue there on the outside of the pot--can you see what I'm talking about? Do you think it looks like a holy image? Can I sell tickets to view it and make money for fabric? Yes, I know I'll probably be stricken (struck?) dead for my irreverent sense of humor someday--I just hope it doesn't happen for 40 years or so.)
What else did I do tonight? Well, I just couldn't resist. I started the project I planned to work on Friday night. While watching The Mentalist and a re-run of an MI-5 episode, I pieced the 9-patch blocks.
Time now for bed, because the Friday Night Sew-In isn't going to arrive until I've slept, gone to work, and come home again to play!
