Not sure what will be today.

Up early today. Grocery list is made for tomorrow. Plan on being at Walmart by 7am tomorrow to get my monthly shopping done. I hate it when you only get paid once a month. In a few months that will change.

The weather turned snowy yesterday and it is still on the ground. Hopefully we can warm up a little so the snow will not make roads slippery. Several accidents in the area yesterday. Travel in other parts of the country are going to be effected with this Winter storm chasing across the country. Hopefully your travels will all be safe.

I plan on doing bathrooms and run the vacuum today. Maybe a little sewing will happen. I was in getting more of my applique pieces prepped yesterday and found out I am short some of my pieces. Searched for an hour for more of the fabric and I used it up in another project.

I decided it was a scrappy look to parts of it so the remainder of the applique blocks will have a different center for the flowers. I have another small print that had the same color shade and value so a few mixed in will make it look like nature because no two flowers are the same. Thought I was good about getting all the fabric together. Need top plan better next time when multiple pieces are used from the same fabric.  Either that or just cut out all shapes at one time instead of a few here and there. I have the risk of loosing pieces that way too. Can't win. Just not an organized person.

I think after Christmas in the sale aisles I'm looking for small containers that will stack for projects. I use a lot of zippered bags now and sometimes I think I have placed things away to find them scattered. I know that can still happen with storage containers. Maybe I need a manager to keep me in line.

Sometime this next year coming up I need to reorganize all my bad habits. Cleaning better, Eating better, Exercising more and better attitude towards life.  We can only do it for ourselves. No one can do that for you. No I don't believe in New Years Resolutions, but I do think I can try to do better and hopefully I accomplish the task. Hope you have a good day. Stay safe. Chris

I use the clear plastic boxes and put a label inside the box facing out. Then I have to stack the boxes with that end showing so I can see at a glance what is in the box. Bags are too slippery and slide into all kinds of places.

I agree with Wanda--plastic boxes are best with labels--some of my things get put in the wrong box (really?? duh) but for the most part I can begin to find things better now...hugs, Julierose
