Carolyn you can get groceries delivered? Man I checked that out immediately but sadly the only establishment that does it here in the backwaters of Nova Scotia is one of those gourmet places where the blood red oranges are $3 each and the meat is cut for you by a guy with an English accident and wrapped in brown paper for about the same price as buying the cow and doing it yourself. And a person to clean sounds good and I have thought about it but both Rascal and my son's dog Birdie bark like they have lost their minds at the vacuum - how much would I have to pay to have someone put up with that?
And Betsy public areas on Tuesdays, I love it. Does that mean you don't worry about it the rest of the week? Sounds sensible.
I find this very enlightening and if anyone else wants to share what they really do in the way of domestic upkeep I would love to hear it.
Not that I am very good at this at all, more on the level of not wanting my slippers to snap when I walk across the kitchen floor in morning.
My issue with housework and all that maintenance stuff is that I resent it because it is not creative and more specifically stands between me and that sewing machine.
And not too that I don't make a lot of time for sewing, if you were looking at it like a normal person.
Tonight for instance my husband came home and made dinner and as a result I have this dress, the black dress with the cool collar, last season's Butterick 5277, made to the darts and invisible zipper are in stage.
I am dying to see how this collar turns out and am going to get it done, bathroom window installation or no bathroom window installation (thank you so much for the suggestions to seal the grout, I didn't think to do that and it is so obvious, also on the list for tomorrow). I need a new dress badly.
I have added a bust dart to this pattern too and if it turns out want to show what I hope is an easy way to do that. And if it doesn't turn out I will show you what not to do.
Later, off to bed. Sewing with Nancy is on at 7:00 a.m. and that's my warm-up for a high level sewing day.
