Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table: "Someone like you" by Cathy Kelly

On my TV: Nothing.

On the menu for tonight: We'll be having dinner at my parents.

On my To Do List: Dry, fold and put away one load.

In the craft basket: The ripple blanket.

Looking forward to: Wednesday evening! Please, let it come fast! I'm going to Court for the company where I work on wednesday morning, and I hate being in Court. I'm really nervous you know, so please, I only wish that wednesday evening comes really fast.

For the weekend

Well, the weekend is almost here and I can't stop thinking about everything I want/need/have to do. I have to write everything down before I forget something, and what better place to write than my blog?

So, let's start with this evening: wash one lol, unload dishwasher, fold and put away clothes in dryer. Of course I'll have dinner and will have to clean up the kitchen afterwards (I'm convincing myself here). AND I want to do some more of the ripple blanket (I try to do a bit every night while we're waiting for one of the machines to stop washing).
Friday morning I have to get up at 8.30 am the most. Is the last day that I can return the package to "La Redoute" so I really need to go to the post office. Maybe I'll get up earlier and try to start to clean the house, good idea huh? In the evening only one thing is certain: I'm going to paint my nails RED. RED!!This wouldn't be a big thing if I would do it once in a while, but when I paint my nails it's usually white or transparent. So painting them red is a HUGE thing for me.

Saturday afternoon we'll have a b-day party. Other than that is clean the house, do the laundry, iron, play with the kids, date with hubby and ripple some more of the blanket. All this with the nails RED! hehe this should be fun!!

Crochet and knitting projects

Hello, everyone! Last week I was reading my blog (I do that from time to time. Everyone does it right? RIGHT?) and I realised that I didn't show you the finished doilie. I took a picture of it with the intention of making a post with it, but then I got sick and forgot about it. So today I have decided that it was time to FINALLY show you the doilie.

Like I said, it's not perfect, but good enough for me. Since the beginning of Spring, the doilie is on our dining table with the Spring fairies and the fake flower.

The doilie is too small for the table, but for now it works. It has to work because I'm not going to do another one in the near future. Meanwhile, my sweet MIL taught me how to knit, and so I started a scarf.

See? There's me sitting on the couch knitting the scarf. I thought that knitting was not so difficult after all, so I made two scarves. The other one I gave it to my niece.

But now I have another love.

It's addicting and, because it will be HUGE in size, I only hope to not get bored with it (like the "Last Supper", remember?)

There you go. Meet the beggining of my ripple blanket.

Like I said, it will be huge in size. But I think it will be "oh so beautiful" on our bed and I can't wait to have it done.

I feel terrible..

I'm having the worst flu ever. My body hurts, my throat hurts, my ear hurts, I didn't sleep at all last night, so my head hurts too.

I'm at work right now. I didn't want to come but I had a few things that had to be done today, so here am I. But I'm leaving soon. I'll be heading to the E.R. and then, home. If I feel better I'll write from home.

Love you all
