I got up fairly early for my day off. It was a nice little sleep in, but not headache producing cause I slept too much. I still got up and had my coffee for a little too long at the computer, but hey! It's my day off!
I swept the front room and got out my Wii and the Fit and exercised for 30 minutes, then went onto Wii Sports and did a little work out with the bowling ball. I think I played that thing for an hour today. Making up for lost time...I missed it for three days in a row. I don't like that it happened, but my schedule at work and the little goodies I have to do in between kind of got in the way of my Wii time. I am going to have to figure out a schedule of sorts so I can get on it at least six days a week.
I started making a purse today. My old one is breaking, the snaps are coming off of it. Normally, I would run down to our local Ross Store and stand there for two hours trying to pick something out that would suit me, but I have no money for a purse and I do have a couple of patterns and material to do it with, so I am making my own.
I have been reading Down to Earth and trying to follow some of her suggestions to living a simpler life. Believe me, this could take me a while, but I won't learn a thing if I dive in with both feet. Baby steps, baby steps. So here I have all the stuff I need to make the purse. I am saving gas, time and money! That's a great baby step to me!
I am also making a "salted"* attempt to make bread again today. *See August 12th's post. I'll be sure and let you know how this batch turns out. (I have regular salt today...)
I also need to work on that light I started a few weeks back. I had to stop working on it, because I need a place to hang it from so I can attach the material to the top ring. That is going to require me to place a hook in the ceiling in my front room, because that is where I have the most room to move around it freely. I suppose I should have thought about that while I was planning out the lamp itself! But that's the way I roll...
My new keyboard is working just fine. I am not making new words up anymore and there are spaces in between the legitimate words I type. It's amazing how much pleasure can be gotten from a simple thing like a keyboard that works. It still cost me too much, but oh well...I'm saving money on a purse.
Hope you all have a great week. I'll update the purse and bread situation sometime later this week!
