Get ready for a busy week!

Last week, other than having to shovel snow, was quite relaxing.   I was home just about every day which allowed me to work on my challenge piece.  And wearing my braces do help...I've also bought some KT tape, but I need to have Bob watch the YouTube video on how to apply it.  Interesting concept!

But I have now stopped sewing as I have two ideas for finishing it but I want to get input from my fiber buds when we meet tomorrow!   Our meeting last week was canceled due to snowfall so 3 of us are meeting at Panera's for our last get-together in 2016!

I've also taken inventory of food/dinners I have left in the freezer and should have enough meals to last through Monday!  It's kinda fun or a challenge for myself to finish up all leftovers.  Amber teases me because I freeze EVERYTHING!   Bob and I don't waste anything!   Personally, I love leftovers but I don't always want them the very next day...hence, I wrap and freeze!

This week will be busy as it always is before we leave.  Today is meeting my buds for lunch; Tuesday I'll grocery shop for Christmas Eve and Day meals for kids (menu all set for both days! woohoo!);  Wednesday is cleaning family room; oven, frig...just basically making sure each room is well dusted/vacuumed and ready to relax until we get home next spring!  HA

Thursday I'll get cookies out of freezer (yes, I froze them!) and packed up to deliver on Friday; Friday girls are getting groomed so I'll pack up the backseat while they are gone (and Bob is gone!  Better I do this without him!) then start making  pecan pie (per Amber's request)  and putting together other dishes for Saturday and Sunday!

I've also taken inventory of food/dinners I have left in the freezer and should have enough meals to last through Monday!  It's kinda fun or a challenge for myself to finish up all leftovers.  Amber teases me because I freeze EVERYTHING!   Bob and I don't waste anything!  Personally, I love leftovers but I don't always want them the very next day...hence, I wrap and freeze!

Next Monday is our laundry and packing day!  Because we take both summer and winter/fall clothes we don't pack up until the day before we leave.  Some clothes we've worn so I have to wait until laundry is done.  We usually have the car totally packed (with exception of dogs!  HA) by 2 or 3 in the afternoon.  After 11 years you know what goes where so we're pretty good at this  part!

Tuesday we leave!!  I always have mixed emotions abut leaving...hate leaving my home, family and friends but I do enjoy the warm weather and Florida friendships!!

I had never heard of KT Tape. I'll be interested to know what you think of it and if it helped your wrist. You certainly have the winter travel south down to a fine art!! Our temp right now is -12 so I don't think I even want to go out to get the newspaper!!

Have a safe trip and Merry Christmas.
xx, Carol

Wow you are so organized.
We too freeze all leftovers.
They are better the second time around.
When it gets busy I shop the freezer for
the meals for the day. Have a safe trip.

Like you, I find that a few days at home is an absolute treat! Seems we are always on the go- in a good way of course. You are in count-down mode and it sounds like everything is as ready as you can make it. We're keeping it warm down here for you.

I've got a friend who freezes everything, I have done it occasionally and it was handy. I've still got two children at home and so we don't have leftovers! Enjoy your travels to Florida, you sound very organised.

Your stitching is perfection and so pretty. Organized in every element of your days up til you "fly" South. Enjoy Christmas and get togethers with family and friends. Fa la la la la...
