Ho! Hum!

Yep! It's been that kind of week! My out of town guests left on Sunday as did my husband. He flew out to Charlotte for the whole week to work on a project at the airport there. So, with Katie at school, it's just me and the boys. I enjoy a break from hubby every now and then. And since these last few weeks have been filled with cleaning, painting, cleaning, remodeling, get the drift...I've spent the last couple of days doing absolutely NOTHING!

I had thought about taking Sean and Justin and doing a little camping this week. But think I'll wait till hubby gets back so he can be here to take care of the cats. Can you imagine leaving Harley--not to mention Trixie--alone in this house...even for a couple of days! The little rascal would have this house turned upside down! LOL!

I DID work in my craft room today. It's the only room that didn't get cleaned before guests arrived. I had managed to clear a path to the bed and take off all my fabrics I had stacked on the bed, since that's where Justin slept last week. He was given specific instructions, though, to keep that door SHUT at all times! LOL! Hey...had to have ONE room to throw all the junk into! But it's clean now and ready for business!

So now I must get back to sewing. I've got tons of ideas and tons of supplies! And all that's missing is the energy and motivation! But the fall season is just around the corner and I need to get busy stocking my website. So if anyone out there has a little energy to spare, please send it my way! I'd be mighty grateful! ~~Annie


  1. Don't you just love to have a few days to do what you want??? There's nothing better than to have a couple days alone to just putz! Have a nice week, Dawn

  3. Annie,

    Take some time to relax and rejuvenate!

  7. Annie,

  8. Hi Annie,
    I've been getting ready for fall shows will be here before I know it!! I have so many ideas running through my head it hurts. LOL...
    Enjoy these days of quiet time and have fun doing whatever you want!! A little break from crafting might just give you lots of energy for when it is time to go back to making all your wonderful goodies.

  9. Hi Annie,
    Enjoy your quiet time and get re-energized. Sometimes a slower pace is just what we need and you've been a busy, busy gal.
    Glad to see you're gearing up for fall already. I'm still waiting for summer to arrive here in Maine. :)
    Hugs~ Birgit
