Homemaking Monday

A nice sunny but cold day here today. Just above the freezing mark, but seeing the sun was pure bliss.

Right now I am: Finishing up smocking the second nightie for my new granddaughter due in January. Today I was outside for most of the day and when I came inside cleaned out the furnace ducts for that just in case the furnace comes on! Hopefully not. Hopefully the cookstove will keep this big old farmhouse warm. It is to go well below the freezing mark tonight. My old dog is laying here on the kitchen floor, instead of the barn floor.

I am Thinking: That I can't remember where I put the polar sheets for our bed. Would love to have them for tonight but gave up looking for them! I think they are in the suitcase in the sewing room but its a lot of work to get them down. I hope to have more energy in the morning.

On My Reading Pile: A little boring in this department as I need to get to the library. I have a few Vegetarian magazines to give me ideas of meatless meals. .

On My TV( computer): Waiting for God ( a Britsh comedy about old people in a senior home)Some days I can relate to them.

On My menu for this week: Just when one thinks they are organized..... ! Hum lets see what there is in the freezer???

On My to do List: Tomorrow the winter boots have to come out the grainary. Find those winter sheets. Clean out the wooden bench in the kitchen. Strip the beds and wash the sheets and hang them out in the so called (cold) sunshine tomorrow. Make a menu?

What am I working on: Just completed smocking second baby nightie. Am going to start a pair of mens socks out of Aran wool. Never made any with that heavy a weight before. Hope to sew up the nighties this week. Grocery list, so I can make a menu.

Looking Around the House: The house is in good shape. Clean. I am in the process of cleaning out hiding spots and getting rid of items not used, needed or wanted. Simplifing.

From the Camera:
Chochin my rooster. He is missing his female companions as they are now all in the freezer. Ate one tonight ( he doesn't know yet). He has always been a feisty rooster but now thinks I'm his best friend and follows me everywhere.I took this photo while in the kitchen and he is on the window sill, outside.
