Monday Muddle

How can it be Monday already?  Another week and the end of Aug.  My kids are already happily in the routine of school and I'm still missing the mornings of sleeping in.  Our weekend was quick and spent at home.  We did some yard work, lots of baking, and some house cleaning. 

I had a good laugh at myself on Saturday night.  I took the sewing machine out which I do every Aug and thought about what I could possibly sew for Christmas.  Funny thing is I can't sew a straight line to save my life.  This scene has repeated itself for the past 4 or 5 years.  Always Aug, always great plans,... always still working on Christmas eve.  The irony of the situation quickly came to me as just a few minutes into what I was creating, I broke a sewing machine needle.  Hum... maybe I'll learn my lesson this year and quit while I'm ahead.

So what have you been up to?
