Goodbye weekend...

I wish weekends lasted just a little bit longer. There never seems to be quite enough time to do everything that needs doing. Of course, when you REALLY don't want to do some of the things procrastination sets in, and then you run out of time even faster! LOL
--------------------------

Thanks to Dad we have plastic over the two windows that leak cold air the worst. I was going to cover a few other windows, but they don't seem to be leaking air so we'll wait a few weeks to see how bad it gets... I do have to say with blankets over the two doors and the plastic over the one window the livingroom and computer room are MUCH warmer than the rest of the house. Dad got two space heaters for us through some mailing which seem to be highly effective. The larger one (which we've placed in this area) heats up to 1000 square feet which is probably slightly more space than the two rooms combined. I put the smaller one in the kitchen so if we have to spend much time in there it can be turned up.

I also finally have the curtains up in our bedroom!! They've only been sitting in a bag for about 6 months now... LOL

I didn't get the vegetable soup made as I'd hoped because I just couldn't bring myself to sit in the kitchen to clean and chop veggies. I did clean a huge chunk of my scrapping table in here though so I'm thinking I may just bring everything in here tonight, and wash the table really well afterwards.
--------------------------

I've gotten 11 pages done since my Saturday morning post, but can only share 9. I created 2 brag book QPs just before running to work on Saturday for Connie as part of a surprise she's working on. I've also been asked to stay on as a guest CT member for December with her! Fun! Keep watching, and I'll post more details when I'm allowed!

AND, I'm doing a 1-time gig for K-Joi Studios for Kara's newest kit "Bad Boy"! It's really awesome for anyone with headbangin' photos, skaters, bikers, etc!

That's all for this morning. I need to go do dishes, get the garbage to the curb, and take a shower before work!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

I totally agree with you about weekends. They all need to be 4 days not 2. It's still amazes me how many lo's you can do. I was luck to get 2 qp's and the one I did out yesterday. And I didn't do anything around the house either. I still think that you're Superwoman!! Lovin your layouts too.

Have a good one!!!

YAY to being warm! LOL Our apartment always gets too hot. Like hot, I can keep the heat off all winter and it's still hot in here. And Iowa is not known for there warm winters. I think it's the radiating from everyone else's apartments.

Great layouts! I really like that paper you used from Blythe's paper pack on the one! Look at you scrap girl!

Have a great Monday!

WOW! That's all I can say! You've been very productive this weekend... not to mention all that you get done before work! WOW! I'm impressed! The pages are all beautiful! Have a great week!

What a busy lil bee you've been! It's always nice to be warm isn't it? I remember how that was when we lived back east.

I really love how you blended those 2 papers together.. it makes the whole layout seem so magical. Great job!

Dawne said...
