takin’ it easy on sunday afternoon

Here it is, waiting for me to sew something.


Everything is so clean on my new table.  To the left are some pillowcases to finish for the Funny Grandson’s Christmas.  There are owls and deer on them, so they are sure to be a hit.

Here are some things waiting to be sewn.  I have big plans to finish the 2015 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt (on the right) before starting the 2017 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt next month.  Please don’t ask about the 2016 creation; it did not turn out well.


It is obvious I need to get organized.

Like that’s going to happen any time soon! 


I have a serious–and hopefully temporary–problem:  I don’t want to cook. 

Not at all.

I am living on Subway sandwiches between visits to Mom at the rehab wing of the local nursing home.  That new turkey club with the cranberry mustard topping is pretty tasty.

Today I went down to Walmart, hoping to get excited about food.  I had perused Pinterest, printed out new low-carb healthy recipes, and was ready to get in there and shop!  Once inside all I wanted to do was run back to the car.  Truthfully?  Everything looked disgusting.

I’m calling this affliction “Supermarket Anorexia”.

So I bought a bunch of candles and a new 4-quart Crock Pot for winter-morning oatmeal (I don’t eat oatmeal, but I’m going to try once the temperature drops–it was 74 today).  I also managed to buy protein powder (for a new protein bar recipe), eggs, gum and some shoe inserts.

Then I headed to a much nicer supermarket in hopes that it would inspire me to cook–or at least make food look appetizing.  The place was packed, but I managed to get some butternut squash, two green apples, two sweet potatoes and a can of coconut milk for a Pinterest soup recipe.  Oh, and a little pot of yellow mums.

I still don’t want to cook.  Or eat.  The flowers look pretty, though.

Thank God Banjo Man has taken matters into his own hands and is cooking beans in one of our giant crock pots.

He is on a diet and doesn’t care if I cook or not.

Tomorrow I hope to dig out my fall decorations–including all of the velvet pumpkins from last year’s sewing extravaganza–and spiff up the house a bit.  I love this time of year and the decorations that go with it.

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend and have a pumpkin or two to make you feel cheerful!



Last year’s crop.
