I have to admit that all the sewing and cooking is a lot of fun, but it is a lot of work as well and by the time I got home I was pretty tired. After I unpacked the cold stuff yesterday and I took a long nap and even after that I’m still very tired, but the show must go on. Ha!
Today I got go coffee pot shopping after I got finished at the dentist. I went to Ace Mart Restaurant Supply and boy was that fun. They have everything and they are open to the public so if you need anything for kitchen or entertaining – this is the place to go. I got a Bunn coffee pot! I hope you guys like it!
I got started sorting through receipts for taxes today! Oh my word, that is one big mess! I worked on that for about 2 hours and then met Sheryl and Ms. Mary over at the retreat house to give them a special tour. I sure enjoyed them being there, it was fun.
After David got off work he came to the house and we worked on ironing surface. I am always looking for ways to use things with a dual purpose. With that in mind, I need a rectangular ironing top, but it has to have storage under it, I bought a display case from my friend, Sandy. I got it all cleaned up, then I wanted to see how it would look if we used it as the base for the ironing bottom. We measured it to the size we needed for the ironing surface. David cut a piece of MDF board and then he put a frame on the bottom so that the surface would not slide. While I was gone over the weekend, David was gracious enough to do some painting on the base and even painted the sliding doors in the back. I got some ironing cloth from Joann’s and then I cleaned up the edges and today we attached it using a staple gun. I think the end result looks pretty good. Therefore, double duty!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
