Hummm What Should I Do Today???

My mind is racing...what do I want to do???  I decided to start trotting....yep, it is not a run, it is not even a jog...it is a trot.  It may be hard to believe but I have run a full marathon, a couple of half marathons and even more 5K's but over the last few years I have been packing on the  pounds and now there are no excuses about time.  At my retirement send-off one of my co-workers who is an ultra runner and was an encouraging force for my running the Portland Marathon gave me a retirement gift of running socks and running jellies...yep, I got the message.  Guess what...Enzo loves to run...the beast is released!  


I also made my salad jars...these are so wonderful and keep for a week!  Since I was creating havoc in the kitchen making a salad for our dinner I just filled the jars and now have a weeks worth ready to go.  I am all about the convenience but I like fresh whole foods. Salad jars = fast food! lol  



This product as been around for a while but yesterday I had a need to use it and was amazed all over again!  I am always trying to find ways to create more time by utilizing short cuts.  I wanted to wash this red fabric with this gold fabric but was worried about the color transferring.  Threw a couple of sheets of Dye Magnet in the wash.



Isn't that amazing!  The original sheet is on top and the two below are what came out of the wash! Fabric washed without any color transfer!



This morning I am heading over to BJ's Quilt Basket for the BOM!  That means show 'n tell tomorrow!  All the shops are getting spruced up and ready for the Quilter's Affair in July!

Oh man, I just re-read this post and do you feel what I feel?  Yep, retirement caused a little freedom in the brain space and my ADHD is in full swing...ideas are flowing out...so...watch out, I have a feeling the blog is going to hit hyper speed! lol  poor HH he does like to relax...NOT!  Enzo on the other hand is the perfect companion, I should have named him Sir ADHD (active dog hyper dog).
