My dear hubby is off to The Cities to do errands, have a couple of appointments, etc., and won't be back until TOMORROW! Why does this thrill me? I'm just glad to have the house to myself, I guess.....
So........ The problem I have with this is that I have so many things that I COULD do, that I have trouble choosing where to start. Fabric shopping, yes. Grocery shopping, yes, have to. Library, yes, have to pick up reserved books. That's the afternoon and more! But then, I can
