Friday... Finally

I do have a few favorites this week:
1. The crescendo of busy-ness at work has come and gone. Now there is still lots to be done, but not the frantic crunch that always happens 3 weeks before an election.

2. The weather has warmed up! I got to run outside last night, and apart from being out of shape and having a sore hip, it felt wonderful!

3. I had a quiet Sunday with time to quilt a baby quilt. The binding fabric is washed, pressed and ready to cut.

4. Great crockpot meal last night of potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms, pork steaks with rosemary, garlic and lemon pepper. Also salad made with romaine lettuce, apples, dried cranberries, walnuts, green onions, celery, honey/mustard dressing. MMM.

5. We still have a couple clean garments to tide us over until I can get laundry done this weekend. :-)

I'd love to get back to Friday Fix-Ups soon, and posting some pictures of my current sewing projects. I have a couple of Valentine projects in mind, too. Just a couple more weeks of concentrating on work, eating, sleeping and running - hang in there, I say to myself! That's about it for today. Have a great weekend.

Your dinner sounds delicious!

The weather here has been nice enough to get outside a bit the past few days. SO lovely! Really helps to clear the mind a bit - and beats being cooped up inside.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Sounds like a good week! I've kind of been in the "hang in there" mode lately myself. So much I want to do, including getting back to Friday's Fix-Ups, that I just haven't been able to get to yet. It will come. Hope you have a great weekend too!

I love it, when we as Grandma's can run, walk, cycle, or whatever, plus add a few hand crafts on the side.
It's raining so hard..hopefully I can take a walk this afternoon.

A runner and a quilter, great combo :) Nice you had some time to quilt this week, can't wait to see some of the finished products.

I'd sure love to see that baby quilt!

Exercise always helps me feel better (she said, feeling guilty that she hadn't done any lately...).

I think I'm going to have to dust off my crockpot! Enjoyed your list!

Cathie,#5 totally made me smile. I can sooo relate! :v)

Your crockpot meal sounds absolutely wonderful especially that salad. Yum!

I too would love to see that baby quilt sometine in the FFF.
