    Daughter lives with her fiancee and son went camping last night. I will go pick him up in Maine tomorrow. BF has been banned as I am taking Nancy time. I LOVE IT!

    I went grocery shopping and bought fabric then went to a different store for interfacing which I forgot to buy because I got side-tracked looking at fabric. I cleaned the entire house, did a bunch of laundry, overate ravioli for dinner and the dishes are soaking. I can sew later or not or early tomorrow morning. I could cross stitch or not or I can plan my projects or not. It's me and Allie and I just fed her so she's happy sitting atop the back of the couch looking outside. I should try that, lol.

    Ahhh, so this is what it's like to live alone...

    Isn't it wonderful how you can let discipline go out the window and do what you want WHEN you want for a while?

    Perhaps Allie has JUST the right idea. Peace and quiet time to "watch the outdoor movie"! 8)

    Enjoy!

    I am a single with critters! I get to do whatever whenever! I even decided to stay home this weekend and not visit out of town, and I am luxuriating in the total freedom! No one has any claim on my time for a couple days, AND Monday is MINE also! :lol:

    I used to love my alone time. Than son moved home, that youngest daughter moved home, and then oldest daughter and grand daughter moved home. I have forgotten what along time is. I envy you.

    You cleaned the house and did laundry on your Me Day? Are you NUTS????!!!! I've gotta say, you're a better woman than I am--I probably would have sewed all day in my nightgown!

    I take my "me time" early in the morning on week ends. So quiet- I love it. Flip channels on TV, throw in some wash, check out the board (always a must!) and really just putz around for 2 hours. Lots of times I sew- I can get a lot done in an hour. May not accomplish much, but it's a relaxing time for me.

    It's what I'm doing now- load of wash in, took the dogs out, coloring my hair, checking out the board, planning my day- was supposed to be moving day for the office, but t-storms forecast for the afternoon. Hair will be done by time to get ready for church and then I'll look purty- no more "natural highlights" as my friend says.

    Ahh, mornings!

    Well, I did go out and buy fabric then washed it and dried it. Today I hope to get in some sewing time before picking up son. Most fabric stores around here don't open until later so I may have to catch JoAnn's sale tomorrow. Funny, I get a sale flier and I react like a bee to a flower. Zoom! There I go!
