A Whole Lot o'Cooking Going On

Yesterday for some strange reason I was feeling domestically inclined - AND had the energy to capitalize on it. Starting after breakfast, and finishing around 9:00 PM, I accomplished a batch of chili (split in 2 and in the freezer), a batch of lazy lasagna (split in 2 and in the freezer), a loaf of bread, a batch of cookies, servings of veggies for my toddler (in the freezer), a meatloaf (in the fridge for planned leftovers), plus lunch and dinner for the munchkin and I.

This does not happen often - in fact I cannot ever remember it happening before - but we are stocked up for some dinners now, so I guess that big snowstorm can come and snow us in now - we won't go hungry!

A New Year and UFO's

There have been several news stories lately about UFO's sighted at an airport, or mysterious objects falling from the sky into houses - but in my house the UFO's are "unfinished objects" - and this holiday season saw several around our house. A few tote bags and purses that did not quite make it to the finished pile, some panel curtains that need to be hemmed top and bottom (they are hanging with clips so they are up - just unfinished) and the slipcovers that need to be sewn for my sofa cushions (have had the fabric since mid-October -oops!)

This happens every year - or almost - I bite off more than I can chew in doing handmade projects. Part of it is too many ideas, and too many things that I like to try - that I am always adding projects into the mix up until the last minute. Another is procrastination - but I will address that at a later date (LOL!).

As I get started into 2007 I hope to be better about planning out my projects, using up some of the materials and stash I have had for some time, and donating items that I just really don't have an interest in using anymore. We will see how much that cuts down on the UFO problem - and hopefully my pile of FO (finished objects) will grow more quickly than usual.

Happy New Year!
