Dont do's and do's while you are avoiding swine flu

So, for all three of you avid followers who actually read my blog, thought I'd post just a tip or two about how to spend your time when you are waiting out something like sf, and being so thankful it hasn't been worse than it has....

Do not by any means waste any time dusting, it will just come back, worse than before, instead...
think about what you are going to make with the yarn your son brought you back from Chile before he contracted said dreaded sf...


Take this pretty floss and cheap bracelet from hancocks and after spending two hours wrapping it and approx. ten dollars, end up with something you could buy at cost plus for two.



Dont clean out this cubby, it has been like this since September, it will be like this till the my children go back to school, when the doors are shut, no one knows the evil that lays within...




Do pick a tomato, the first big one, and put it on a bagel and eat it.






Dont bring in the laundry, it will be there tomorrow morning, and it will smell like fresh morning dew....





Do appreciate something someone gave to you a while ago, I love this little bag, my sister gave it to me.









Dont clean up the mess on the table, the juice will get drunk, the hat will get worn, and maybe at some point the sweater will get knitted.








Do make a purse, really happy with this, especially the little turtle buttons, found them at maiwa in canada.









































Most of all just be happy that I am sitting here avoiding all the work around me and doing lots of things I enjoy!!!

I WISH you would use your time wisely and constructively. The sitting around and only getting a couple projects done during your time of stress is just uncalled for. You kill me. The purse is great, the bracelet's cool, I do want to see the sweater finish......gorgeous color. Glad things are better.

LOVE the purse!!!! It is gorgeous! Oh you have a clothes line thing like that too. Cant wait to see the sweater and what you make from the yarn! How did tayler get sf? Oh and the bracelet is great it's just fun to make stuff sometimes even if you could buy it for a little less.

Actually.... you have at least 5 readers. I'm a friend of your sisters and I've been keeping up with your blog. I love that you all are so talented (Yes, YOU ALL!) I only wish you'd all blog more often. Of course I have no room to talk... ;-)
