I am not usually a do-it-at-the-last minute kind of homemaker. But I have to confess than I have been this last week or so.
Jeff wanted a robe to wear while he is in the hospital. I forgot about it until it was too late to buy one in my podunk-town. I looked online at Target and Walmart but the only kind of mens robes they sell right now are Grim Reaper robes for Halloween - those don't seem to appropriate for the hospital, do they?
But I got a McCalls pattern 8524 Saturday on the last day of Hobby Lobby's 99 cent sale. They also had some nice 8 ounce denim, not the most traditional choice for robes, but it suits Jeff and I think it looks good on him.
And even getting a late start, I got it cut out and sewed up in plenty of time.
For now, I want to give our home a good cleaning, buy some groceries, do the yard work and pack up what we will need while Jeff is in the hospital and I'll be on the road.
I won't be posting grocery totals for awhile, I think the people that are interested in them want to read about good recipes at a low cost and that is just not what kind of cooking is going on here right now. So, I'm taking a blogging break starting right now.
I'll be back as soon as I can!
