My regular Saturday Morning routine

is going to the bank, then checking the thrift stores in town. I went to The Caring Place to see if they had any cheap recliners so I can try to re=upholster it. They didn't have any recliners that I liked, but they did have FOUR old sewing machines - three of them had cabinets and they were each marked $15. I stood there and looked at them for probably 20 minutes and was really close to buying one, but decided that I already four machines, I probably didn't need another one. It sure was tempting, though! So after that I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a book on Upholstery - it was $19.95 and I had a 40% off coupon, so it didn't cost me much. I also bought a measuring tape for $.99 so I have one to keep in my purse. It's always handy to have one in my purse and the last one I had broke.

That's the closest I've come to sewing in the last week. One of these days I'm going to start another project of finish one of the many that are almost done!

It's been to terrible hot here lately we really don't feel like doing anything in the evenings. On the weekends, I hang all of the laundry outside instead of running the dryer. Today I'm doing our sheets - I LOVE crawling into a bed after the bedding was hung outside to dry.

I've invited Todd to go to a movie with me tonight. My boss gave me a little extra money yesterday - at first I was going to keep it for myself and add it to my blow money, but decided it would be nice to have a "Date Night" with my Mr. Wonderful. :D
