i am dressed today in an outfit one step away from 'you might as well have stayed in your pyjamas Tif' outfit...
it is grunge with no frills,
hair with no style
face with no color.
i have no excuse for my lazy dress down day other than i wished it wasn't monday.
i fear this lack of aspiring attire will effect my efficiency today when it comes to getting 'nitty gritty' with my to-do list
in the meantime i have several things of note today...
i can not promise it to be tres thrilling,
or terribly enthralling
but as i am dressed in my 'dress down' attire
it is all i have to offer.
1. i will be having a small shop update this Friday,
it has become quite obvious to me that if i do not actually pin point a day for adding wares to my little store,
i start to drift,
i get distracted
and then it becomes almost impossible for me to regain focus.
so for now there will be no more 'adding as and when' i make something,
because obviously i'm not making something,
therefore unable to add it...
so we are back to the old shop update scenario.
you know the drill, so i shall not bore you with the details
2. red and granny knicker pink are taking over the shed,
little bits here and there keep sneaking in...
i spent way too much time on saturday rearranging my knitting needles to match my mood for such colors.
(see what i mean about drifting)
on sunday i tackled our bedroom,
which has never really been sorted since we moved into the shed over two years ago.
still waiting to be dragged out of 1980 and into dottie angel's world.
armed with some lovelies from downstairs i set about making it a little bit more peachier to be in.
the plan is to paint the graying white walls, bright white
and pull up the 30 year old green stained carpet to lay a white floor
all brown wood will go white.
basically what we usually do...
i'm hoping this will be sooner than later but for now things look a little less 'crappity crap' with the help of granny knicker pink
3. little olive spent her weekend in the veggie patch with my man,
she did a sterling job of digging over the patches.
she was not left to 'willy nilly' dig where she wished,
for she has a tendency to be most random with her 'pounce and dig' technique.
and so we placed her on a long leash and then moved her a long every 10 minutes.
this proved most effective,
my man then followed behind and planted the seeds.
they made a brilliant team.
at the end of both days little olive was worn out,
but most happy and contented
for being a 'digger extraordinaire'
there is nothing quite like a veggie patch to get one's digging fix.
4. i have in my hands
(not literally as then i couldn't tippty type, but it sounded grand, so i said it)
yes indeed, for those that know me well,
this could be a ground breaking moment,
more so then little olive in the veggie patch.
this could be the moment my children have waited patiently for more than 18 years.
and my man for many more...
a moment that may cause them to weep and hug their mother,
never wishing to leave my apron strings.
i have in my hands
a cook book!
not just any old cook book
but Jamie's Food Revolution cook book.
gifted to me yesterday by my man.
i have followed the whole series on the box with our #3 and #4.
i rarely follow anything on the box
but this i needed to...
for i was proud of Our Jamie and all he is trying to achieve for our children.
i sat there
i needed to make a change in my kitchen.
to perhaps make my reputation for orange meals and crockpot faux pas, a thing of the past.
and i know if anyone can help me,
how did my man know this was the cook book for me?
he told me upon presenting his gift,
beaming with one who is gifting a gift, worth giving
"i looked inside the front cover Tif,
and i did not need to look any further"
she is thinking her man knows her well ~ Tif
