Time wasting...

I stumbled upon some fun things to do from other blogs, here is one of them. That's our big dog Bruno. You can upload an image and turn it into something fun.
Been working hard at spring cleaning, almost done with the master closet and then it's on to the sewing room.

Shopping at IKEA

Shopping at IKEA is always an adventure, lots and lots of good things that I need or must have. We were on a mission.

We needed new shelves for the den and my eldest needs a wardrobe for his new room. We found a wardrobe that he liked and continued on the search for the shelves. We found the shelves in the self serve area along as some lavender tea lights, ocean scented tea lights, a wooden kitchen utensil set (less than a dollar), and some dishtowels for .49 each.
Finally we went to pick up the wardrobe and it weighed 160 pounds and was too tall to fit in my van. So we paid for our shelves and other goodies and I got my son lunch from the Swedish cafeteria.
He had the meatballs and mashed potatoes plate and I had a great shrimp Louie salad. We also picked up some frozen meatballs, sauce mix and that great lingonberry sauce for dinner another day.

While we were eating these 3 retired ladies sat next to us with a HUGE tray of fresh cinnamon rolls that were giant, at least 6 inches across and 3 inches tall. They offered one to us and my son took one and said it was great.
We had some good conversation with the ladies and then went on our merry business.

More Great ETSY Shops

I have found some beautiful fabric at some great shops on etsy. One that i bought some great fabric is I will post pictures of the great fabrics later. Then I found another place I had to buy fabric from I love them both. What can I say... I love fabric.

I guess I can't add pictures. I will make a new post.

Summer School

So teaching summer (bummer school, as my kids are now calling it) is going well.

We are in the middle of a bedroom and den remodel and all I want to do is sew. Well soon enough. Hopefully this weekend we will be finished and I will be able to sew....

Today I will be making an IKEA run, looking for some shelves for the new den and a wardrobe for my son's new room. I will see how that goes.

I have been surfing some other blogs, (to waste time, since my son is not yet done with his last class) .

There are some interesting folks out there. How can there be that much time when one has nothing to do but post blog entries? I barely have time about once a month or so. I find it interesting to read about other's lives.
