Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Happy New Year! 2015

Hey, I got the day right on time!  I hope everyone has had a good celebration.  We’re taking it pretty low key today.  We’ll take down the Christmas decorations and do a good dusting.  I’ll have to wash the white glass collection above the stove – it gets very nasty greasy and dusty in the course of the year (and maybe someday I’ll wash everything twice a year, but this isn’t someday!).  I have a ham to put in the oven later and I’ll make scalloped potatoes and peas.  I even made a breakfast casserole this morning only to discover that someone spilled something greasy in the bottom of the oven and didn’t clean it up – can anyone say “smoke filled house?”

I’m very pleased to say that I have already taken 2 projects completely off of the 2015 sewing/craft list and have 2 more in progress.  Those gray Spiderman sleep pants that I couldn’t do for Karra turned out really cute for Kurt and I still had to put red cuffs on the bottom of them!

I set out to make over a filing cabinet that was collecting dust in the basement and after looking at pictures on pinterest I decided to decorate it a little.  That decision (and running out of primer) turned it into a cost-something project instead of a completely free with what I have make over.  I found a perfect peel and stick laminate on line and went through a lengthy rant against Walmart when I couldn’t get it (I will NOT share said rant because I chose to leave it and the anger behind me in 2014).  Yesterday I set out to find a less expensive (than $5.87) alternative.  $4 in scrapbook paper later, I have two choices and I’m struggling to decide which paper to use.  I also had to buy a protective sealant to put on the finished project, but I’m still very excited.  I also found woven bins to put inside the drawers to make it into a cabinet rather than a filing system.  And those were 50% off ( a two-for-one deal) and they match a basket I have in the living room to keep my knitting & stitching projects in.  I am so excited to share the project with you when it’s done!  And since we’ve exceeded our Excede it will be mid month before I can upload pictures anyway and I figure another week or so to get the cabinet finished.

It is Arctic cold here for a few days, but we might actually see some snow on Sunday.  We’ll see.  I will however welcome the warmer weather on Saturday and the rain that will fill the water troughs for me!

Have a blessed day celebrating today and if you’re a lucky one that has pay TV and can enjoy the Bowl Games, cheer a few for me – ROLL TIDE!!

And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm.
