New Giveaway Coming Soon & What I'm Doing This Week

I've taken all your suggestions under advisement on the next Boring Blog Box Giveaway and here is what I've decided.......

After Thanksgiving I'll be doing a Christmas Giveaway.  More on that later.

Then in after the New Year I'll do a Giveaway of things you want/need in the Winter.

With that settled, I have a few things to do around here in the next few days---

1.  Get another donation to Salvation Army ready to take up this weekend.
2.  Wrap/Tag a bunch of Christmas presents sitting in the dining room(yeah, it was like Christmas up in here yesterday with lots of packages arriving from my online shopping).  I have to get these wrapped and tucked into a box so we can use the table in there next Thursday.  I'll bow the presents up later, at my leisure, after the tree is up......IF it goes up.
3.  Do a little cleaning out in the Garage.  It was too cold the last 2 days to do anything out there but it is a disaster so this can't wait!
4.  Clean out the fridge so I can fit a turkey in there and get my Turkey Day pantry goods ready for when the cooking needs to start next week.

I already spent some time consolidating the fabric I have listed on Etsy and freed up most of an étagère's worth of space to put some of my personal fabric stash out on it too.  That alone emptied 3 Rubbermaid tubs.  Now I have to move 3 more tubs into the closet those now empty ones came out of.


  1. Get to work, I am tired of you sitting around all the time.....

  2. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle--the story of my life. Today, I asked exbf if he could tell stuff was gone. He said yes...goody. I don't suppose getting ready to cook will be a problem since I don't relish trying to cook without water to wash things up as I cook. I know that even in the house it was too cold to do much, so I don't blame you for not going into the garage to work.

  3. It has warmed here enough that I have no excuse for not deep cleaning, so that is what is happening.( Rats! I had so hoped to be lying about eating bon bons as usual)

  4. I'm looking for a tree I can hang from the ceiling so the kittens won't be batting ornaments from one end of the house to the other. Failing that this'll be a tree-less Christmas! That wouldn't be so terrible...would it?

  5. LOL at Out the Window's comment. I need a nap after reading your post.


Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
