    And I'm spending it in my sewing room! After sending DH off to work with a kiss and a cup of coffee, I'm going to throw in a load of laundry, do some dishes, and then retreat to my bat-cave for some well deserved time one-on-one with my fabric. I've been working 2 jobs for the last lil while and think I've earned my extremely rare day-off-without-the-hubby. I have my father-in-law's placemat to work on finishing, a baby quilt to start piecing, and a set of pillowtops to work on (read: take apart and rebaste because its so crooked it belongs in Vegas). Thinking of inviting my neighbor over for a little while in the afternoon, maybe. Been meaning to give her the quilting bug, but there just hasn't been time. Although I don't know if today would be the best day, since the only piecing to be done today is on a quilt that is a gift for her. Perhaps I'll set up a date when she can come to my work and we can go shopping. :-D

    I'm so happy. I just got my sewing room rearranged and I haven't had the chance to USE it in its new prettyness until today. Woohoo!

    Good for you! Enjoy your day. I took the day off yesterday to catch up (actually to START) on Christmas gifts and I'm so glad that I did.

    yes... there's a different energy and focus in the house when our men are always home, isn't there? Mine is retired two years now. It's a different kind of life for me now, although he's not a needy kind of guy. This morning he has Just left for a doctor's appointment. I get all celebratory inside, relishing my couple of hours to myself.

    enjoy your day, s;pam! Comfy slippers, and No Bra. lol...

    p.s. would Love to see photos of your new & improved sewing room (if you haven't already posted them!) :-)
