I enjoyed a rare Sunday alone as my parents took Buddy to the museum and Mr. T was at work. I slept in late and woke up excited about the possibilities the day might hold. I've been dying to see Pride and Prejudice, so maybe a trip to the video store and some take out? But I haven't been to the fabric store in months and the 40% coupon from the craft store expires today. Decisions, decisions. Then I walked into the kitchen and the dirty dishes from Friday were staring back at me, as were the piles of laundry overflowing from the hampers. So I spent my Sunday doing six loads of laundry, tackling my messy kitchen and vacuuming the house. Not exactly a perfect day, but it always feels so much better once the house is clean again.
But all was not lost. I did get some craft time in between loads, and almost finished an embroidered patch I've been working on. Which coincidentally, has a housework vibe to it and features the March Project Spectrum colors, pink and red.
I also had time to enjoy my ebay win which came in the mail on Saturday. I think I mentioned a couple posts back that I finally won a vintage children's book that I had bid on a bunch of times, but kept losing. It's called "Fun to Cook Book" but its actually more of a pamphlet and it was published by Carnation Foods in 1955. I spotted a copy of it on a Japanese antiques website and was drawn to the cute illustrations. You can see more of it here.
And thank you everyone for all the wonderful comments about Buddy's intrepid Space Travelers. Hopefully Biff and Suzie will survive the hands of a 4-year old and carry on for more adventures.
