Yesterday was nice. No one was coming. We didn’t have to go anywhere . . though Vince still went to town. He’s so happy to be living closer to town, even though he won’t admit how glad he is that we moved here. The other day he had something that needed to be welded . . some legs on a piece of equipment for his shop. There’s a welder in his grumpy old men group but he’s out of town working. There’s another guy who wasn’t a welder by trade but has welding equipment so he said he’d fix it. Another neighbor came over with his pickup, loaded up the equipment, took it down to the other guy’s house. Not sure how long it took them to do the work but Vince was gone a good part of the day. I think they all had fun doing “man” stuff together. I told Vince . . we sure moved to a good place. I think he almost agreed with me and then caught himself.
So . . yesterday . . first thing I did was get the freeze dryer loaded and going. I had two trays of tomatoes, one tray of okra and picked bay leaves for the fourth tray. The grocery order arrived and I got that all put away. I made yogurt. I did the morning chores. By then it was almost noon so we had lunch and then I pretty much cross stitched the rest of the day.
Those both came about from watching flosstubes on Thursday.
Then there were very needed items after watching Vonna’s Beginning Punch Needle Video
It was a busy shopping day. But, you have to have the tools you need, right.
Oh . . I bought a few of the non-slip hoops too. I’m wondering if I should have ordered this one instead of individual hoops. Nevermind . . I canceled the individual hoops and ordered this thing.
I have a feeling Vince is NOT going to be happy but you should see the things he’s been ordering. All I know is it’s called a CNC machine. He bought one when we lived in Texas and never used it so he decided he needed a nicer one. Ordered that and it arrived earlier this week but he hasn’t opened it yet and now he’s heard that a new and better machine is coming out next week or next month so he’s thinking about sending this one back and getting the new one. I have no idea what it does but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t cook, or clean or do laundry do . . very similar to cross stitching and punch needle! 🙂
Just breakfast and then leftovers were heated up.
Videos I Watched:
I got a lot done on Harvest Tina. Skirt is finished, shoes are stitched, borders are finished. I’ll do a blog post later today about that.
Plans for Today:
It’s Saturday. Addie’s game is in Nevada, MO but we aren’t going. Clemson and GA Tech play football so you know where Vince will be all afternoon.
Nothing on my agenda. I don’t usually have housework scheduled for weekends except the regular stuff so I hope to stitch a lot.
