Contemplating My Reality

I think "my" reality is not matching up with what is really happening in my life.  I am basically a kept woman.  Hummm, did you feel that???  It is my mother rolling over in her grave!  HH is basically retired but contracted back for 3 months...exactly, 53 more days for him.  Which means...after spending time looking for those dang Christmas cards and ending up buying a new box...then picking up the mail...which had 3 "quilty" packages stuffed in it...I NEED to tighten the belt.  Besides the fact that while looking for those Christmas cards I had to straighten out my sewing room, YIKES...there is a gold mine in there!  I have already begun to decide my 2013 challenges...one of which is to not have anything arrive by mail until the summer.  I know, I know....I could say all year BUT, Lisa will have designed some spectacular BOW and...well, although I'm committed I'm just not going to be stupid about this.

While I was stressing about the whole being "kept" and spending money on a hobby that is a bottomless pit...I decided I would save money by making frozen waffles for HH.  He eats 2 each morning.  I figured the store bought ones cost more, are not as nutritious and with the allowable animal by product that is allowed by the FDA I would start earning my keep by making homemade ones (I don't allow any animal by product...Enzo isn't even allowed to smell them).  Not having any concept of how many waffles come out of a batch I made a double batch...

hummm....there are enough waffles for a month!  They are prettier than the Eggos and I added some pumpkin butter to the batter so they are very flavorful...and somehow...I feel a little like a domestic diva...

Sunday was Woolie Day at Sew Many Quilts and I have a little show 'n tell slide show for you.  Today is the Woolie potluck at QuiltWorks...this week it is wool, wool, wool,....of course there is a little quilting thrown in here and there.  Have a great day!
