Oh Happy Day!

Well as crazy as the weekend was, Monday made up for it. What a great and productive day filled will all kinds of good stuff!

I started out doing my yoga and it felt good. It's getting easier each time I do it. Then I took the dogs for a mile walk. We all enjoyed that even though it was cold and damp. We had some of that freezing frost stuff this week and some of the bushes and trees are still a bit white. They look so pretty.

Back home for breakfast and some clean up and a phone call to Comcast. When we disconnect our cable TV on Saturday to get Dish Network, we will be left with just Comcast Internet. That means our special little rate goes up to the ridiculous regular rate. I didn't want my special little rate to go up so I pleaded my case to three different people and my rate will stay the same for six months and then it will go up. I figured by then maybe something else will be available out here where I live, if not, I pay the higher rate. Oh well.

Then it was etsy time. I put on my Adam Lambert CD and got to work. I listed this pillow in FourDogDay.....

and this new Itsy Bitsy Tote Bag too. Kind of a fun one.

I am still using up fabric that I have on hand for these, and that is so awesome....especially after working on my taxes this weekend and seeing how much I spent on material this year! OUCH! I have two other Itsy Bitsies done and they are my absolute favorites so far. I'll show them to you as soon as I get them photographed.

I even managed to iron all of my clothes for the week today so I don't have to worry about that every night. I hate it when I don't iron and have to do it on a nightly basis. Such a pain! Do you iron?

What do you keep busy with in the middle of January? It's back to work for me today, but I love the four day work weeks!

Make it an awesome day and be sure to do something nice for yourself today!

Yay! An awesome day to make up for the day before. The itsy bitsy tote bag is just too cute. I'm into buttons right now!

I love days like yours yesterday. It feels so great to get so much done! And yes, I iron! I think we're the last of a dying breed. I don't know too many others who iron as much as I do. And I like seeing the trees like the pic you posted. I was driving home late yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed seeing all of the frosty trees.

Have a great week!

I do iron because wrinkly clothes make me crazy. I especially like the look of khaki slacks but oh, those wrinkles!

Your photo of the frost covered tree is lovely.

Have a blessed day!

I love busy, productive days like this! Lucky you! That photograph is icy! I love it. The bag is too cute. I'm thinking about several people who could use it and love it!

Do I iron? Not if I can help it!
