Copper was called in for a twelve hour overtime shift early this morning. He worked those twelve hours, came home a little after seven this evening, and then started caulking the windows on the front of the house in preparation for painting the trim around them. He works hard, that guy!
We worked hard today, too! A busy gopher destroyed all three rows of potatoes that Dani planted. We’re all pretty bummed. Copper actually saw the gopher in action one day last week and put an end to his criminal activity, but it was too late for the potatoes.
This afternoon, Dani dug up all three rows where her beautiful potato plants had been. She ended up with a little less than a gallon of potatoes, about half of them too small to use at all, but the others we’ll enjoy.
I began working on our master bedroom closet today. It’s very narrow and very, very long. We’ll be getting carpet sometime in the next few weeks making it the perfect time for a deep closet cleaning. I’m hoping to use the shelves in the back of my closet for my fabric stash, when it’s all said and done.
Closet cleaning, of course, means discarding stuff we no longer wear. That process netted a couple of bags full of clothes to donate to the Goodwill and a stack of eleven pairs of my husband’s old jeans. For years I’ve wanted to make a very simple, but sturdy, denim quilt to take to the beach or park, but I’ve never wanted to store old blue jeans long enough to have a large enough supply for a quilt. I’m doing the happy dance to have a nice, big stack of jeans ready all at once.
The quilt won’t be fancy, just simple squares, batted, backed and tied. I’m thinking something similar to this quilt that I found on Pinterest.
When it’s not Copper’s day off, and even when it is, he works hard! Dani and I followed his example and we got a lot done today.
How was your Monday?
