My "Sick" Day

I have just about had enough of work and decided earlier this week that I would play hooky (sp?) today...I really needed it! My wish list of items to accomplish this weekend is a mile long and I am happy to report that I have checked several off already:)

I have a lovely half wall between my kitchen and great room that I have always wanted to decorate really cool for the holidays. Today at Hobby Lobby I lucked out because all the Fall decorations were 80% off - so for under $10 I bought this garland, candles and pumpkins. I really like how it turned out and the candles make the house smell so nice.

My last "R" arrived this week from Moki's initial swap and man is it a beaut! Cathy sent this beautiful watercolor picure/colage. I love it! Thanks Cathy!

I finished my Apron atc's for Selena's swap - I have been on a purple and green kick lately:):) I also finished up the remaining Christmas atc's for Amy's swap (I posted about those a few days ago), boxed up a couple packages that are ready to be mailed out and cleaned the kitchen. I want to clean the pantry too this weekend so I think I will start that next:)

This is part of the envelope from Cathy - she decorated it with several lovely drawings - I love her style:):) Now my Hubby really thinks I'm crazy because I've started keeping decorated envelopes:)

What's on your agenda this weekend? I have Christmas ornaments to sew, several presents to start (and hopefully finish), put together some Thanksgiving goodies for Miss S's class and teachers, clean the pantry, finish laundry, make some birthday and thank you card samples for a class I am teaching at church, try to organize my sewing area so I actually have room to work on aforementioned ornaments and presents, give the three crazy dogs a bath, and watch 5 taped episodes of Nip/Tuck.
