Rainy Day With Nothing To Do (Yeah Right!)

I am sitting here wasting my time. Maci Clare is engrossed in the TV. (I know, I know, I'm a bad mama but sometimes you just need a little peace.) And yes, we watch TV. I think we have a good balance but that is another post. It is pouring rain today. I love these days because that is when I feel the need to stay home.
This week has been kinda slow (which is a good thing around here.). I got all my house cleaning done yesterday. (If you look around right now, you really can't tell.) I am still reading the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I am on the third book, Eclipse. They are slowing down a little for me but I am still enjoying them. I only have one more to read and then I'll move on to something else.
Gabe and I were standing in Walmart looking at all the potential reading material last weekend. His comment was "so many books" and I replied, "so little time." That is really how we both feel. Some days we both crawl in my bed and just read. I think that is what I will do most of the day today. (hopefully if all kids are otherwise occupied.)

Maci Clare fell asleep on our bed last night and this is the result. She sat up and flipped. I saw it coming but couldn't catch her fast enough. She hit the hope chest at the bottom of my bed and then hit the floor. She cried a long time and only wanted her daddy. I guess she blamed it on me for not catching her. But I tried. Oh well, a mom can't feel guilty over everything. They will get hurt. And she is fine today.
I have been working on several projects. I am taking a sewing class. This is my first completed project. (I couldn't get the picture to rotate, for some reason. Anyway, you get the idea.)I think it is just okay. I am keeping some sewing things in it right now. Hopefully, I will get better at this sewing thing.
But the project I am loving the most is this.
Unfortunately, Maci Clare hates them. Jack wants a camo one. I may try it and see what it looks like. A friend of mine has rented a table a craft fair and I am going to send several and try to sell a few. I am contemplating an Etsy shop but can't decide. If I do, I will list bow and tutus and maybe some other things. Just can't decide how profitable it will be for me. Or if it is worth the time.
I baked 38 muffins last night (with Jack's help) with hopes of putting some in the freezer and heating them for breakfast sometime. Turns out, they ate almost all of them. I think there are only 8 left. So if I am going to freeze things, I need to make double or triple what I really think. In the next few days, I am going to start a sourdough bread starter, make pancakes from a homemade mix to freeze, and try a new crockpot breakfast casserole. I would like to get ahead with some cooking and baking because Christmas is coming.
Jim and Zane will be cub scout camping the whole weekend. So Gabe and I might try to muddle through my list of projects. Some of them the two little ones can help with. I'll try to make pictures so you can see what we get done.

I am feeling the dreary rainy day feeling too! I have a few little things I want to get done, but I am sitting here on the computer instead:) Kaylee is on the second Twilight book and has given me the first, which I haven't started yet. I am in the middle of another book right now.
Have a happy rainy day!

I am going to start crafting and sewing again the first of the year. I love it! I did not want to do it with remodeling going on. I hope we can finish the last few things we are going to do by the end of the year.

Poor baby falling out of the bed. Funny that she only wanted Jim!
