I had a relaxing day, punctuated by a nice long nap. Naps are highly underrated in my opinion. They are wonderful things! 🙂 A good nap refreshes and restores me.
I managed to sort through my spinning fibre and pull out the next blend to be spun – a silk/Merino blend. It is a lovely mix of white, browns, and grays. Should make lovely rocks in a rug…maybe for a shoreline or roadside… I have it all wound in balls of roving ready to spin.
Finished downloading all my photography course, and watched more of it. I am learning a lot between it and YouTube. Unfortunately I feel like I am not seeing things. After a year on the blog I feel I am running out of subjects! Will play around here and see what I can do.
The budgeting sessions with hubby are complete. Some minor tweaking and changes. I took the opportunity to pull out my business receipts and organize them for my accountant. I used to work for a man whose wife was an accountant. I felt sorry for her every year at tax time when people would bring in shoeboxes of unorganized receipts for her to sift through and record. As a result I have carefully labelled all mine and clipped ones in similar categories together. I hope that significantly cuts down the amount of time my accountant needs to go through them.
On the home front I managed to clean up my cold room under the stairs. It is a small space, but man, can I ever pack a lot into it! 🙁 It was a disaster! Took an hour just for one small 3′ x 4′ room. But, once done, it was so much easier to see what I had on the shelves and what needed to be used up. I felt so good about it that afterwards I went through my basement freezer, writing down the contents so I can menu plan for the first half of January at least. Now it’s onto an inventory of the upstairs cupboards, fridge, and freezer. My challenge is to see how long I can go without buying food other than perishables. If I want more cash for fun stuff, I just gotta bite the bullet on other things. We have been eating entirely too well.
