Just Plodding Along

Tuesday, March 14, 2006


Forget knitting, spinning, walking and everything else I enjoy. I have a new thing going. It's where you try and make $50 last a week feeding four people. It was fun emptying the fridge and freezer of available food, and we did get invited elsewhere for two night meals and one lunch, so we didn't have to find food for those times. It was interesting last night when all I could find was some steak that was the last thing in the bottom of the freezer, and some lettuce from the garden. But I made it!
To have money again today was a good feeling, I don't know what people do when they don't have money - but I'm sure it involves not eating.

I have in other news finished the back of the new hoody I started for Daughter, but I don't like it so far. I'm inclined just to rip the whole thing back into balls of yarn and start again with another pattern. She will be starting school soon, so it's not like she desperately needs a warm winter top, as there is a uniform at the school.

Watched Frailty last night on TV and it was sure a mind spinner. Won't say too much for those that haven't seen it, but it was worth me renting it next time I'm at the DVD shop.

Have collected heaps of fabric for my next quilt project, so want to organize those soon. Got a Quilting book out of the library to try out some different squares maybe. It's called Quilting From Start To Finish by Katherine Guerrier.
