  5. How does your day go?

    by , 06-30-2013 at 07:45 PM
    I am an early riser......usually up by 5AM. First thing I do is start the coffee. Then I feed the cat and let the dog out. I take my coffee in my sewing room and start sewing/cutting. Now I have to let the dog in. Pour myself another cup of coffee. Back to my sewing room. I let the dog out again, then start sewing/cutting. Yup, you guessed it.....I let the dog in again. And so the day goes.....sew, let the dog out, sew, let the dog in.
