I am really running late today. You know the saying better late then never, well that is the motto for today.
I have been a busy little bee since returning from our vacation. Monday was spent doing laundry and all of those fun household chores. I do most of my laundry on Monday, with sheets and towels on Wednesdays. I will run a load of clothes on Wednesday and Friday if I have enough for a load. Since I keep up pretty good on the laundry I had forgotten how much work it is when you just do it once a week. I felt like I was never going to finish up the laundry on Monday.
Tuesday was spent doing yard work. Megan and I went out and picked up pine cones in the afternoon. Then grandma stopped by and Megan went with her to see grandpa and have dinner. Chuck and I used this time to cut grass. We then hit the Chick-fil-A drive thru and stopped by the bookstore on our way to pick up Megan.
I hadn't been to the bookstore in a while. I could have spent a fortune there!
Today was spent cleaning out my closet and crafting. I am using some of the collected pine cones to make a wreath for my front door. I had Chuck cut out a large circle out of cardboard to use as the base for the wreath.
I then started to glue on the pine cones with my handy glue gun.
This is what I have completed so far:
The plan is to add a large homespun bow and hang it on my front door as my Christmas wreath. I usually like to hang a wreath of fresh greens, but I am trying to cut back on spending. You can't beat a wreath that is well... free!
Once I have it complete I will post a picture. Stop by and visit Leslie to take a peek at what other's are working on.
