    Rare Occasion

    Even though I couldn't make it to quilt retreat this weekend, I have the whole house to myself for the weekend. What shall I do??? Anything I desire.... Definitely on top of my list is QUILT. I'm working on King-size Log cabin with stars. Log cabin is done so next step is trimming then figure out ow they do the stars on corners. No distraction will definitely help. Have a great weekend! Happy Sew!

    Stay in your PJs and only brush your teeth and hair, and wash your face, then sew like the house is on fire, LOL
    Eat something in between times, lOL

    Jammies all day. Nap when you want to, several times. Eat yummy things at odd times just because. Sew something you've been putting off. Have the bestest day!

    I love it when my hubby goes on his hunting trips in the fall. I have the house all to myself and can do what I want to when I want to. Great time to get a lot of sewing and quilting done on my own time. I do miss him, but I keep myself busy all day and sometimes half the night.

    Sew 'til you get stiff, then use up all the hot water in the tank in a leisurely soak. Then a nice nap.....repeat.

    Do what you want when you want. Then sew up a storm.

    Husband is coming home today. Crockpot all set up for dinner. Enjoy spending some 'ME' time with some quilting and some do whatever I want mood which is staying in pj's and enjoyed glass of wine and being lazy. What a blast! Now back to reality and really miss my husband. Thanks for some great advise!

    I go bonkers when my hubby leaves for any length of time. I plan wonderful meals (he's a meat and potatoes every day guy) that include veggies and shrimp and lots of fish. My vice is sardines ( I love them) so I plan at least one sardine sandwich meal. I quilt and piece for hours on end and go to sleep at odd hours. It's like a holiday! One time, I hired a cleaning crew to come in and clean the whole house including the carpets. He was amazed that I had been so industrious (hee hee). Oh yes, I drink wine that I like.

    I usually get the house straightened up first, go shopping for my favorite treats and then the rest of the time just indulge. It is so fun to just do what I want to do without having to stop for someone else. Selfish, selfish, selfish.
