The weather:::Chilly. Today the clouds have taken over, but we did have a bit of sunshine this weekend.
On my reading pile:::
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
(I decided to reread one of my favourites after watching 'Midnight in Paris' & I'm also very excited for the GG movie coming out)
On my TV:::
Big Fat Gypsy Weddings
On the menu for this week:::I have yet to sit down and make a menu plan for this week, & I'm kind of afraid to use the stove, I had a boiling-over incident whilst making my own laundry detergent this weekend & now whenever I cook it smells like burnt soap.
On my to do list:::Finish unpacking. It usually never takes me this long, but this house is very difficult & we STILL haven't found the hardware for our table & the big dresser is still down in the dining room.
I also need to work on my ripple blanket, I haven't been able to get much done in the past week.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::I'm still working on the ripple blanket. I would also like to start some flowery bunting to hang in my living room.
Looking around the house:::Ugh. It's such a mess.
I want the dresser out of the dining room & then I think I'll be finished.
From the camera:::
Layla's room! It's the only room that's finished. I unpacked it first so she'd have a place to play while we're trying to finish up the rest of the house.
Something fun to share:::
When you move, especially if you move as much as I do, make sure the movers pack up the hardware to furniture that has been taken apart in a special place. It's been a week & we still haven't been able to eat at our table. We think the movers taped the bolts into the paper the table legs were wrapped in, and the movers took those with them after they unloaded everything.
