boxesI have big plans, make that wishes, for this weekend. I sure hope I can get my new house into some kind of working order. I have had a hard week going home after working and having to work some-more to get my house done. The problem is that I am down to those boxes of junk that I did not know what to do at the old house and now I don’t know what to do with at my new house. I hope I have more strength this weekend to get rid of more of this stuff or at least set it aside for a garage sale. I have a harder time getting rid of stuff lately because we live in such a small town. If I plan to do a project I can’t just run out to the nearest hobbie Lobby to get what I need because it is a 4 hour round trip. I collect stuff for that when I have time project and then don’t have time because I am always sorting the mess of what I have collected. One day I will get to play around with what I have collected and make some wonderful projects and my collection mess will be much more under controll… well I can wish can’t I?

Elvis has also informed me that he needs a pet fish for his new room. We have not had luck with fish in the past but I think I can give it one more shot. He is old enough to pick out the one he wants so I think I will take him to get one tomorrow.


Sewing projects January 22, 2009

Elvis has been “helping” me sew, at least that is what he calls it.  I have almost had him put stitches in my fingers three times now.  He sneaks over and presses the pedal all the way down.  I am trying to include him in the sewing and I let him cut the threads and help me guide the fabric so he will learn the proper way to use the sewing machine and not abuse it.  We made the “Uncle’s” puppies vests since they get so cold here in the Valley where we live.  They were very easy and quick to make.  We got the pattern from here at

Elvis also wanted to show “Uncle’s” his Batman pajamas and mask on Tuesday when he went over to their house for the day.  He was so excited and wanted me to make sure that the mask was on and his coat was off before he went in to see them, even though the morning was very cold.  My mom snapped some pictures of him.  Notice how he is modeling and showing off his cape.
