This week's project was curtains for my babies room. I think they turned out good. I think they look bad in pictures though. They don't look this circussy in real-life.
My favorite of the day is: Getting magazines in the mail. Magazines are one of my favorite gifts to receive. When I was a teenager I got 17 for awhile, until my mom discovered how nasty it was. (And it was). Then she got me Self. I devoured it. As an adult I've gotten In-Style (very worldly), Oprah (some good articles, but not a lot that seemed like for real life people), Rosie (she had some good craft ideas before she became a wack-o), Family Fun (love it), and for two years in a row my SIL gave me Creating Keepsake for Christmas.
This one has been my favorite so far. Even if I don't use a lot of the ideas, I love looking through it and seeing all of the happy, fun ideas. I have kept every issue and when I need an idea I still look through them.
When she didn't get my name this last year, I decided I could live without them. I thought about asking for another year for my Birthday, but I missed getting them a lot. So, I just ordered another 2 years for $30. I figured it was giving me $1.25 a month of happiness.
With everything going on, you try to cut out non-essentials so I decided I really didn't need these. But, then my husband said he was going to spend some money upgrading our TV package this summer so he could get his favorite baseball games. There is some things in life that are necessities, but just make life worth living. Mine is a good magazine, his is baseball. What is yours?
Sugar update: I made it though one day and it was hard. We are having a family get together tonight that I have to live through. The problem with me is that I don't go grocery shopping every week to get all of those fresh fruits and veggies. I'm going to try to go on Monday and I will try that green drink and share how I liked it.
