One could say they are having 'one of those days' when things don't go as planned. Last Friday I woke up to water on my basement floor coming from my stand up freezer. If you have a stand up freezer, you know it is important to ensure the door is securely closed. I apparently, the night before, didn't close it well enough. My freezer is one of those you have to manually de-ice from time to time. Mine has been 'long' over due for de-icing. How does one plan such a thing? Who has room in their refrigerator freezer for an entire freezer of 'stuff'? I digress, so there was 'lots' of ice in my freezer to melt on the floor. Before I had my eyes all the way open, I was busy running whatever I could to my up-stairs refrigerator freezer. Tossing 'stuff', re-organizing and trying to get my freezer cleaned out as quickly as possible to start de-icing. Several years ago, I learned about putting strawberries down in the freezer whole and make my strawberry jam when I needed it rather than making it all up in the summer. Several bags of strawberries were pretty thawed out, I probably could have put them back in the freezer but I needed jam anyway so I put the strawberries aside to make jam. This lead me to going under my steps, which is my storage for a lot of things, one of them being my empty bottles for jam. I discovered quite a mess! All summer pulling coolers out, then putting them back, etc, lead to me fixing up the storage as I pulled out my bottles for jam. This lead to 'since I'm there anyway, bent in 1/2 (as area is like a crawl space), I may as well get out my Halloween decorations and decorate so I could put the plastic containers back neatly once done. You get the idea.
I had shown you my rooster chair pad I was working on last week, this lead to me making a second!
In the mail this week, Lynne shared her inch mat she is working on. It is coming along beautifully.
Janice shared her beautiful rug she is working on.
